Coinciding with their Leipzig celebration, Sega announced the next installment to their fan favorite light gun shooter series House of the Dead. House of the Dead: Overkill will be exclusive to the Nintendo Wii.
Set as a prequel to the House of the Dead series, Overkill will have a "pulp funk horror" theme, fitting with Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse movie features. Aside from the point-and-shoot controls, the new title will also have a mêlée attack activated by swinging the Wii-Mote. New gameplay features such as "Slow-MoFo Time" and "Evil Eye" will help players identify and use interactive environments to their advantage.
House of the Dead: Overkill will be released sometime next year.
