Gamers who didn't get to play the Nintendo Wii's House of the Dead: Overkill are in for a treat. The game is being re-released on the PS3 as House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut. It will feature an HD overhaul and support 3D as well as the Move, but we already knew that. We didn't know about a host of new features, including Hardcore and Classic Mode, a new enemy, a new weapon, and an extended final boss fight. I remember the "Mother" fight from Overkill, and I really don't need that experience extended. Gameplay-wise it's fine, but as far as content goes -you know what? I don't want to ruin anything for you.
House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut will be out on October 25th for the PlayStation 3. It supports 2 player local co-op, but we have our fingers crossed for an online mode. Read on for a list of the announced features and screenshots of the much-improved graphics. You may notice that Varla Guns is on one of the alternate box covers. Sega has alluded to her playing a larger roll in the game. I'd wager that at least one of the two announced extra missions will focus on her. But who knows? Maybe the game will support 3 player co-op. We can dream, can't we?
