House of the Dead is one of those franchises that you just never forget, not because you played it as a kid, but more because it was one of the few on rails shooters at an arcade that actually had sequences that could actually physically scare you, even though cover was a button press away.

House of the Dead made a triumphant return in 2009 to this generation of gamers, with House of the Dead: Overkill on the Wii. I’m not one to bash the Wii and it’s games (read: I am) but House of the Dead: Overkill actually worked out brilliantly on the Wii, with the lack of player movement (on the rails duh!) and aiming controlled by motion control, it proved to be zombie killing fun for all the family, those who were over 18 that is.

This year SEGA are re-releasing House of the Dead: Overkill-Extended Cut for the PS3, with move support of course, but more interestingly MIND BLOWING 3D! In this case your characters mind, as zombies eat brains and thus minds, which you should already know and if you don’t then God help you during the zombie apocalypse in 2012 (the crowds during the Olympics). Both Stereoscopic and Anaglyphic 3D flavours are supported, but to make the purchase of an on rails shooter on a disc even sweeter, SEGA are gonna include 2 paper 3D glasses with boxed copies of the game in Europe at no extra cost, but only on release day. Of course the offer is subject to availability and there’s limited stock.

Oh and while you’re here, why not check out the cool 3D screenshots, provided courtesy of SEGA,These screenshots are in RED-CYAN anaglyphic 3D. That means you’ll need paper glasses with a red lens and a cyan lens to see them correctly. House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut supports RED-CYAN and GREEN-MAGENTA Anaglyphic 3D as well as active and passive Stereoscopic 3D
