House of the Dead Wii Bound
SEGA officially announces House of the Dead 2 and 3 for Nintendo' s console; Wii Zapper supported.

November 16, 2007 - Following leaks from Europe yesterday, SEGA of America has officially announced that is planning to bring updated versions of House of the Dead 2 and 3 to Wii in 2008' s spring season. The two arcade games will come packaged together on one Wii disc in a set SEGA is calling The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return.

Gamers who pick up the compilation will be able to play both classic arcade titles, " battling the relentless attack of bloodthirsty zombies with steady aim and a quick trigger finger." As with all Wii on-rails shooter, House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return fully utilize the Wii remote, which can alternatively be housed in the Zapper shell to simulate a light-gun.

The two titles will feature more than six gameplay modes, including Arcade Mode and Time Attack, according to SEGA. In addition, up to two players can target zombies simultaneously in the title' s cooperative mode.

" The House of the Dead franchise has been revitalized for today' s gamer looking for non-stop shooting action on the Wii," said Rick Naylor, director of marketing, SEGA of America. " This will take gamers back to experience the celebrated first-person arcade shooter that was so popular in the late ' 90s."

When asked, SEGA said the titles are being developed by AM1/HIC and further noted that it' s too early to comment on whether or not the Wii efforts would feature significant content changes or graphic improvements.

Not much of a surprise to see this news. First a atleast decent Sonic game, NiGHTS is looking fantastic and now this. SEGA seems to love the Wii.

Might pick these up eventually...will probably depend on how nostalgic I' m feeling when I see it in stores.
