The House of the Dead: OVERKILL Extended Cut – Hunt Mutants With PlayStation Move in 3D

David Bruno's Avatar + Posted by David Bruno on Jul 14, 2011 // Public Relations Representative, Tozai Games

We barely escaped a horde of flesh-hungry mutants to bring you this PlayStation.Blog exclusive! *panting* But today we are proud to reveal the box art for The House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Extended Cut, the latest b-movie blood fest from SEGA and Headstrong Games.

The House of the Dead Overkill

We announced The House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Extended Cut just before E3 this year, and were amazed to see that there were so many who were eager to take aim at the mutant infection springing up in Bayou County. This is the first time we have released The House of the Dead on an HD console, and we feel that the PS3 is the perfect home for an arcade-style shooter like OVERKILL. With 3D and PlayStation Move support, two brand new scenarios added, and all seven stages of the original remastered, the ‘baddest’ just got bigger! We are really working hard to make this the best in the series to date.

These posters and our box art pay homage to our signature retro b-movie look, and hopefully you recognized the legendary Agent G and Detective Washington. This time around, we also wanted to give Varla Gunns a bit more top billing, so she became the headline character on the box art. This is no fluke however, she plays a bigger part in this Extended Cut and we’ll have more details on this soon. Exclusively for you PS blog followers, we are also releasing some fresh screenshots and the fact sheet detailing all the new features of The House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Extended Cut.

Are there any multiplayer aspects of this game. A mode you can play with your friends online?

Why wasn’t this a Move launch title :)

House of the Dead + Move + 3D = instant purchase

I wish we could get a few arcade and PSone/PS2 light gun classics on Move too (Point Blank anyone?)… as this generation is seriously lacking when it comes to gun games.

I’ve been a long time HotD fan, and was pretty envious when the title originally came out. Needless to say, I’m pretty psyched its finally coming to PS3. Thanks for bringing this to us, I already pre-ordered :D

I appreciate the Sharpshooter compatibility, please make sure there are no weird actions like “Shake the move controller!” which are difficult to perform with the Sharpshooter. Thanks.

Are there any plans for a re-release of Virtua Cop: Elite Edition and/or Virtua Cop 3 on PS Move?

I never go to arcades anymore, but I have great memories of those games. If they were on PS3 I would also buy them without a second thought

FINALLY!! A Housee of The Dead game for PS3. This was long overdue. But why couldm’t it have been Housee of The Dead 4 or any of the past arcade versions? Will SEGA ever release HOTD4 on the PS3 or maybe an HD compilation of the past arcade versions, maybe even put them up on the PS Store?

This was the only game that made me keep a wii for about a year then I let it go. I can’t wait for this outside having to by a move setup. so I hope there is a move bundled with the game as an option.

HOTD 4 really should be on PS3

It’s a brilliant game, but it can be very unforgiving

Is the game compatible with other peripherals besides the sharpshooter, like the pistol thingy that came out when The Shoot launched?

This will be a great game to play during Halloween. I’m looking forward to it.

Solid-Snake-Eyes, what games have you shake the controller? I only know of Dead Storm Pirates, but you move the controller in circles for that.

GT-420, there’s nothing to be compatible with for the pistol attachment since it just works with the Move buttons. The sharpshooter maps controls to it’s own buttons.


33

It’s good to see some new Move games! This game looks super awesome too!
It has perfect timing of coming out a few days before Halloween too~

+ Falaut on July 14th, 2011 at 9:25 am said:

Yay, more Move shooting games! Please Sega/Sony, be sure to a separate algorithm (probably not the right term here) for both Move by itself and then Move with Sharpshooter. Playing Killzone3 is amazing with the sharpshooter but there is a problem with it loosing its centering. Now this isn’t an issue when using Move by itself and resting the move on your knee or something, but when you play with the sharpshooter you hold it up like a real rifle (at least I do) and when it looses centering its such a mood killer. I know games can tell if a sharpshooter is being used (Socom4) so please make this happen, or at least include it with all future Move/Sharpshooter releases.

Thought the Sharpshooter was a gimmick, even when I was at the store paying for it….boy was I wrong!!!!!

+ NinjaBerd on July 14th, 2011 at 10:07 am said:

With this amount of content Sega can not possibly justify a $60 or even $40 price tag. If this is $30 or less it will be a day one purchase for me. Now, if Sega can throw in some other HotD even if they are SD I might be more willing to shell out a few more bucks.
