House of the Dead: Overkill (Extended Cut) on October 2011


One of the best Wii games ever is now getting a port over to the PS3 as a retail product with two extra levels, HD visuals, trophies, Move and 3D support and aaaaaaaaaall of the awesome dialogue, feeling and atmosphere that made this a must buy for all Nintendo owners. How soon can Sony console supporters get their hands on this very fun game? October. October 25 to be exact.

Here’s the list of all new and exclusive PS3 features for Overkill:

* PlayStation Move and Sharp Shooter compatible
* OVERKILL fully remastered – available in high definition, with stereoscopic 3D for the first time ever
* Extended with 2 additional levels not featured in the original game (MORE levels? Pre-ordering right now!)
* Exclusive crossbow weapon
* New baby mutant type (ooooooooh, baby mutant? Niiiiice!)
* New Hardcore Mode – mutants can only be killed with headshots (so, just like regular zombies then?)
* New Classic Mode – play through the entire game using only the AMS Magnum
* Exclusive Missing Reel – an extended boss fight with “Mother” in “OVERKILL”, the game’s final level
* Online leaderboards to track high scores and player statistics
* Collectibles to grab throughout all levels to unlock bonus materials; comic pages, music tracks, 3D models and 2D artwork (can we have a CE with physical copies of the bonus material? I kinda missed on the comicbook of the Wii version so I’d gladly give you guys $10 extra for that and a soundtrack CD added to the PS3 version)
* New PlayStation Trophies to unlock (EdEN approves!)
* Improved boss fights in all levels
* New and improved cutscenes using motion capture
* And more still to come!

You will soon be able to enjoy all the fun provided by levels like this:

    I liked the cover a lot more than what the game seems to offer ;p

    but I haven’t heard of it ever before, so maybe that’s it.

    @Pedro: Hopefully there’s a demo soon so you can try it out. I LOVED the game on Wii and I had a blast playing it start to finish multiple times with my brother and several of my wife’s relatives. Worth it on Wii, now in HD with trophy support and two extra levels!

    Warning this game has so much cursing in it you cant play it with kids around. I have heard of some cursing but this makes bulletstorm seem like pg. Genre is dying but it was a fun romp on the wii a few yrs ago.

    Heard this was great on wii. I wonder if it will support the sharpshooter well.

  6. #6 by EdEN on July 14th, 2011 [ 131365 Points ]

    @Jason: Yep, most curse words on a Wii game ever (and up there for most curse words on a game at all).

    @The_Nmac: Very good game on the Wii. Played it start to finish 10 times and would still have a go at it again.

    Great way to get good M games that died on Wii to systems where they’ll actuallly MIGHT sell :D I’m stoked about the re-release of No More Heroes, and I’m crossing my fingers for MadWorld. Also, Dead Space Extraction good catch :D Can Zelda PLEASE just jump ship and come to PS3 or Xbox.

    I am willing to bet money that this game and no more heroes will sell less on PS3 than wii

  9. #9 by EdEN on July 15th, 2011 [ 131365 Points ]

    @Darklurkr23: Ok, Nintendo defense force, GO!

    Total Copies sold on Wi

    MadWorld – 600,000+

    No More Heroes – 500,000+

    No More Heroes 2 (for reference) – 300,000+

    House of the Dead: Overkill – 700,000+

    All very good numbers, all made a profit for their publishers. SEGA was actually VERY HAPPY with the Overkill numbers and rumors of a sequel have been circulation around for a couple of months.

    I’ll buy No More Heroes and Overkill on PS3 even if I own the Wii versions because what is being added is worth it and they deserve my money.

    Now, for Zelda on the PS3? Go and get Darksiders from this link!

    I love the PS3 as much as everyone here (except those who are x360 fans and eden) but let’s be honest: Zelda is meant to be played on a Nintendo.

    I agree with you 100% the chick makes it look so much better.

    Do you need Move to play this?

  13. #13 by dragon290513 on July 16th, 2011 [ 7218 Points ]

    you can use regular Dualshock 3 controller with the analog but surely Move is better, more convenient for this

    why is the cover censored?

  15. #15 by EdEN on July 18th, 2011 [ 131365 Points ]

    Censored where?

  16. #16 by Isegrim on July 18th, 2011 [ 55 Points ]

    Her Boobs r censored. EU Version shows more skin, i think.

    You’re right! There’s a small white triangle between her breast in the US boxart that lowers the skin total (but not by much). Weird, huh?

  19. #19 by EdEN on July 18th, 2011 [ 131365 Points ]

    Guess the US has to be protected from the terror and danger of the under-boob hahaha.
