Yesterday at Leipzig, Sega announced a new House of the Dead game, entitled Overkill, exclusively for the Wii being developed by Headstrong, formerly Kuju most recognized for creating Battalion Wars.
The game is built from the ground up specifically for the Wii, so all the assets are new and look pretty smooth. The game will take place in a small town and seems to mostly involve some carnival, and follows the characters G, fresh out of the academy, and some police man named only Washington. Obviously, co-op is a no brainer, and a variety of weapons will be at your disposal, but there will only be a handful, and not say, 20-30.
The team is very adamant about making a great title, so I would expect good things from them. They are trying to do the best with the franchise as they can, and I'm sure it'll turn out well. Look for the game in 2009, and check the trailer below.
