Overkill Hand Cannon Makes My Day

The House of the Dead: Overkill gets the best Wii peripheral ever made.

Check out what's being bundled with UK and Australian editions of House of the Dead: Overkill.

Bullet holes the size of matzo balls!













In my book that takes the cake as the coolest Nintendo peripheral for shooting dudes, edging out the Super Scope. I'm not even a huge fan of guns in general, but if I have to take out a horde of zombies I sure as hell would rather have this in my hand than that freaking Wii Zapper. I will not get laughed out of the Zombie Apocalypse!

I'll drive that tanker.
Unfortunately this isn't currently available in the US. Additionally, Australian zombie hunters will be able to get twice the firepower with two guns in their "Big Bang Box" bundle. I guess it just goes to show how Australia still has the right idea when dealing with an apocalypse, so stock up on that hair gel now.

Check it out on Amazon.

Posted by grainger

thats so fucking cool :)

Posted by RawShark

Almost makes the Wii look cool.

Posted by Doogie2K

There needs to be a new Typing of the Dead for the 360/PS3 chatpads.

Posted by Roy42

They're alright, though I still prefer using just the remote and nunchuk and imagining some type of awesome, future gun in my hands that morphs shape every time I change gun in the game, still, it does piss in the face of the Wii Zapper.

You also get two of them!! I am tempted...

Posted by Shadow

Damn.  They've just topped the Perfect Shot.  And that thing was pretty badass.

Posted by Sarkhan

Love how the box says Hand Cannons. Yeah, even i would wanna try that out:)

Now make a trilogy pack with 2 Hand Cannons for the Ps3/360 :)

Posted by HatKing

This is the first time I've ever been sad I don't own a Wii.

Posted by Death_Burnout

Right, well im buying this JUST for that, 100% better than the zapper.

Posted by Scooper

Haha I love the authentic clip. I'm gunna go rob a bank with this thing.

Posted by sdauz

yeha australia finally gets something cool, not that i have a wii lol

Posted by RHCPfan24

That is awesome. Better come to the states.

Posted by Meowayne

It's really annoying that GB equals Europe with the UK whenever they can.

Posted by Hector

That's bad ass!

Posted by Driadon

WANT. It's awesome to see Australia get something exclusively awesome but I WANTZ IT IN NORTH AMERICA! PLEEEEEEAAAASE?!

Posted by albedos_shadow

As I said before, I hate myself for wanting this badly.

Posted by jakob187

Is the Wii region-locked?  Because, if not....I'm probably going to get that Australian bundle...JUST to have the peripherals.  Fuck the game!

Posted by c1337us

Man I didnt want this game until right now, those are some bad ass looking gun periphials. Finally its not Aussies getting shafted.

Tomorrows news: OFLC refuses classification of House of the Dead Overkill. Calling it now. The ratings board cannot stand for this, we dont derserve them.

Posted by duxup

That is both horrific and somehow awesome at the same time, a bit more horrific though.

Posted by spiceninja

I'll have to buy one of those off eBay I guess. Unless they sell them separately in the US.

Hand cannon=epic win. I want now.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Awesomeness. The Hand Cannon makes the zapper look even more like crap.

Posted by kboy

Totally beats the hell out of the Wii Zapper.

Well, you win some, you lose some. Australia gets to wait forever to play Rock Band, the HotD Hand Cannons don't get released in North America. Happy now, Australia?

Posted by Snail

There was a thread about this. The more I look at it the more I want it.

Posted by Civraz

I'd love to play RE4 with that....

Posted by HandsomeDead

This looks like something I could actually give a shit about. Excellent.

Posted by DukeTogo

Ironic since the UK and Australia have some of the most strict laws regarding firearms and firearm replicas.  The use of the word "hand cannon" is carefully worded, since the use of gun or pistol would not be acceptable.

It reminds me of the old Justifier guns from Konami for Lethal Enforcers.  They just need to come in pink and blue, one for each sex (yes that's why they were those colors).

Stick with the Nerf one, it can be used as a Nerf gun when you're not playing the game.

Posted by pedantics

already got 2 nyko perfect shots... do I really need another two light gun shells?

actually, kinda, yeah. wish they were black though....

Posted by natetodamax

Just wait. Once it's released it will probably be a piece of crap that doesn't work.

Posted by pause422

Still isn't a classic light gun, but its alright.

What? KOTAKU?

I'm the one that uploaded the pics Vinny!

Posted by AspiringAndy

Fuck Yes!
Australia never gets anything exclusively awesome.
This is the first time that I have thought to myself, "good thing I'm Australian"  while reading gaming news.

Well since the Australian OFLC doesn't have an 18+ rating, you Aussies often get M-17 games at 15+ with minor or no cuts. For the youngsters, that's a great thing. However at $100+ AUD each, you guys are still getting the shit end of the deal.

Woo UK gets something USA dont.

LETS CELEBRATE

Posted by RenegadeSaint

Must have.

Posted by ArclightBorealis

Man, Giantbomb is just full of news on House of the Dead Overkill.

I am jealous the UK and Australia gets that gun shell. Oh well, at least I have a Nyko Perfect Shot...

...damn, I'm still not content. I want that Hand Cannon!

Posted by whoozwah

"bullet holes the size of matzo balls"...damn I love the Goonies

Posted by AlucardaLaCarte

Makes me want my grandma's matzoh ball soup. Shot out of zombies. Delicous matzoh zombies.

Posted by get2sammyb

Posted by Popo
