Confirming rumors that had started to swirl around in weeks prior, Sega has now officially announced the development of The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return, a two-game Wii-exclusive compilation of The House of the Dead 2 and The House of the Dead III currently slated to ship in spring 2008. Putting the Wii Zapper to further use (or the standard Wii Remote and Nunchuk control duo if you so choose), The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return will feature a zombie-filled single-player campaign with branching storylines, two-player co-op action and more than six total game modes, including Arcade Mode and Time Attack.

“THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD franchise has been revitalized for today’s gamer looking for non-stop shooting action on the Wii,” said Rick Naylor, Director of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. “This will take gamers back to experience the celebrated first-person arcade shooter that was so popular in the late ‘90s.”
