Sporting an overall sore of 78 on Metacritic, Sega's House of the Dead: Overkill is on its way to mobile in the not too distant future. Like similar House of the Dead titles, gameplay revolves around mowing down loads of bloodthirsty zombies. This time around, Overkill explains the origin story, revealing the "horrific truth" behind the origins of the House of the Dead.

Reviews of the original Wii title mention an overall lack of diversity, which I suppose is somewhat expected in these kind of games, but Overkill is packed with all the ridiculous over the top B-movie zombie stuff that House of the Dead fans will love. Sega isn't giving a release date any more specific than "April," nor a price, although they have mentioned that it will definitely not be free.

Also, as usual, we've got a thread in our forums if you want to discuss the game with other fans of the series.

    The original ending to House of the Dead Overkill on the Wii had one of the most disturbing & over the top endings of any game....ever. Seriously. You watched it and thought: Did they just DO THAT?! I would be surprised if they keep it in this version...

    I've been asking for this for literally years, so good on Sega for finally doing it. Great game and hilarious from start to finish. Day 1 for me.

    I hope they don't just implement tap to shoot controls. Would much prefer Rage style controls.

    Yes. Don't ruin it with iAP and just give us a pure House Of The Dead gameplay experience and this will be a (wet and gory) dream come true. THANK YOU SEGA! X

    An overall sore?

    Oh cool, I was not expecting this. It was fantastic on the Wii, really funny and great fun to play. It will be interesting to see how they implement the controls, but I'll definitely be grabbing this when launches.
