SEGA's House of the Dead: Overkill on Wii was a fantastically gory and ludicrously tasteless reimagining of the classic House of the Dead arcade series, and now the game is coming to PS3 in the lengthily-named House of the Dead: Overkill — Extended Cut.
As well as full support for PlayStation Move and stereoscopic 3D, we can also reveal the game will support the PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter for that true arcade light gun feel.
The original seven stages will be joined by two brand new scenarios, with new game modes and full Trophy support set to be included too.
The first HD screenshots are below. Expect to gnaw on the game in October.
