Sega has officially confirmed that a new House of The Dead title will be released on Wii early next year.
The company calls the title ‘an all-new pulp-horror reinventionof the classic SEGA light-gun shooter franchise’.
House Of The Dead: Overkill has been created by London-based studio Headstrong Games (formerly Kuju London), and will be announced at Leipzig this week.
According to Sega: ‘The series is getting a new retro look, with distinctive graphics, sound and attitude that will add to its horror cool status. Plus, thanks to the Wii Remote, players will fight off zombies when they get too close; pistol-whipping jaws off and smashing in skulls with their shotgun butt.’
"We wanted to do something really different with The House of the Dead: Overkill," commented Bradley Crooks, Studio Head at Headstrong Games.
"With SEGA we’ve been able to create a fresh look for the franchise. I think you’ll agree it’s like nothing you’ve seen before on Wii."
"Paying homage to the pulp horror comics and films that inspired generations of gore fans, The House of the Dead: Overkill will expose gamers to a brand-new fleshy rollercoaster ride of revolting dismemberment," commented Gary Knight, European Marketing Director at Sega Europe. "This is the hardcore Wii title you’ve been waiting for."
