Sega confirms House of the Dead 2 & 3 Returns

hod2.jpgRemember how Gamefly leaked a House of the Dead compilation for the Wii yesterday? Sega just sent over an e-mail mentioning the title is real and scheduled to come out in spring 2008. The Wii version packs the House of the Dead II (previously released on the Dreamcast) and the House of the Dead III (previously released on the Xbox) on a single disc. Also somehow the Wii version takes advantage of the nunchuk, which is odd because both games are on rails. Is this the first sign of a new mode? I sure hope so!

    Now all Sega needs to do is confirm a Virtua Cop compilation for the Wii including the third installment in the series and we’re set. Seriously, I think it’s been long enough that Virtua Cop 3 has remained a arcade exclusive, the title’s long overdue for a port to a home console.

    Unfortunately, thanks to the decline of arcades in North America, despite the arcade scene still going strong in Japan, there’s no access to Virtua Cop 3 for me, so I’d finally love to get a chance to play this light gun shooter after all these years have flown past since its release.

    Don’t quote me on this, but if I remember correctly the nunchuk is being used to reload the gun. (i.e. you shake the nunchuk to reload)

    that would be great.

    But I think Sega is being cheap not porting HotD1 mostly likely due to it’s age and hardware where it ran Saturn/Sega Model2c… and I think they’re being cheap too in not adapting HotD4, but that one they could sell as standalone, I guess.

    As for this game… needs a budget price and at least a 16:9 mode.

  • I’ve heard a lot of people suggest that Sega ought to bring out the VC games as well. Which is a fantastic idea. Playing Dead or Alive II in the arcades is a total rip off, so this makes for a better alternative.
