According to Spanish gaming site, Revogamers, (thank God I learned how to read Spanish with my DS) House of the Dead 2 and 3 is coming out for the Wii early next year. Kotaku backs this up with the official press release they got from Sega too (which is after the jump). The game is officially going to be called House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return, will use the Wii Zapper and you can check out some of the screens at Revogamers.
It’s bad enough that the Wii is flooded with PS2 ports but at least those games look somewhat good. I really have a hard time believing that these are the actual graphics that we will be seeing for this game. Then again, there has been worse crap on the system that people seemed to have adored.
