Wii becomes the console of choice for -zombies- light gun games, House of the Dead becomes the latest title announced by the arcade masters.

"In THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD 2&3 RETURN, players will be able to play both versions of the game, battling the relentless attack of bloodthirsty zombies with steady aim and a quick trigger finger. Utilising the innovative new Wii Zapper™ or the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, players will experience branching storylines with over six game modes including Arcade Mode and Time Attack modes that will test their shooting skills. THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD 2&3 RETURN features an engaging single-player campaign, plus a co-op multiplayer mode for up to two players for countless hours of zombie shooting action.

“THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD franchise has been revamped for today’s gamer looking for fast-paced shooting action on the Wii” commented Gary Knight, Marketing Director of SEGA Europe. “Utilising the new Wii Zapper, the player can get the renowned light gun experience in their own home.”

THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD is famous for its heart-pounding pace and the great visual detail of the vast armies of unique enemies. Blasting through legions of grotesque zombies and mutated monsters, players eventually face-off against colossal boss creatures that will test the accuracy and skill of every Wii gamer."

Fantastic. I love light gun games. I love House of the Dead. I'm happy.

What's more interesting is the possibility of the fantastic House of the Dead 4 being released on Wii, it had previously only been announced as a Xbox 360 title, but now we'd be very surprised if it didn't turn up on Wii later in 2008.

The Zapper is just a housing for the Wiimote/Chuck, doesn't actually "do" anything.

Apparently it's lacking a spring in the trigger button so it feels a bit soft and squidgey.
