House of the Dead to Wii

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

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.

That's kinda cool. But I don't think it could of killed them to throw HOTD 1 in there and make it like a collection.

If this Ghost Squad and RE UC do well there could be a slew of other light gun games to Wii. Time Crisis 4 would be cool, as well as HOTD 4.

Yeah House of the Dead 4 would work perfectly fine on Wii. You can even shake the Zapper to reload exactly like the arcade version. I am telling you, I have a feeling that the Wii zapper would be the first light gun accessory that would really be supported for a console, which is good news.

About this game..to be fair I am rather disappointed. I already have house of the Dead 3 for Xbox and it has the second game on it. I would rather it to include the first one too or at lest replace the second game for the first. Ghost Squad has a better chance of me buying it then that now and that's not a good thing!

don't think the Wii could handle TC4 or HOTD 4 graphically. I'll pass as I've already played them both but a good sign for the future.

House of the Dead II is an unlockable bonus in House of the Dead III on the original Xbox.

House of the Dead IV will be released on the 360.

I think the original House of the Dead should be released on the Wii VC and/or the XBLA.

I don't think the Wii can quite handle even House of the Dead 3 accurately. We'll see.

Don't yall know Wii is old school. They get unperfect-arcade-ports, like back in the day.

So it might not be able to handle House of the Dead, but it can handle House of the Very Badly Injured.

Its probably a modified port of House of the Dead III that was released on Xbox.

Yes, that looks worse.

I remember when Wii-o-philes were insisting that the Wii was almost as powerful as the Xbox. Guess not.

I recall that when playing Virtua Cop and others, all I had to do in order to immediately reload was point the gun away from the screen, a feature I wish Umbrella Chronicles had but ah well.

The Wiimote does not know when it is pointed at the screen, only when it is pointed at the sensor bar.

Arcades these days are not really any different. They just do it on a bigger scale.
