Because you can never have too many zombie games, Sega announced today that the B-movie inspired Wii game House of the Dead: Overkill is getting a PlayStation 3 Extended Cut version. The game is set for October 25 in the US, and October 28 in Europe.
As you may imagine, the previously Wii-exclusive title will utilize the PS3's Move peripheral. House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut polishes up the visuals with HD and 3D support as well as includes two new scenarios. The game will be shown off at E3, but our first peak are some screenshots provided today.
"The House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut for the PlayStation 3 system will send players to the shrieking mad heart of mutant mayhem," said Sega VP of marketing Gary Knight. "This time we went further, faster, and bloodier than before. We extended everything, even the title."
The game's consciously campy motif and rail shooter gameplay led to generally favorable reviews on the Wii, so this PS3 version might be a good opportunity for undead aficionados to catch up.
