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.

Thanks to Kotaku for the tip on this one.

Almost makes the Wii look cool.

#11 Posted by Doogie2K (216 posts) -

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

#12 Posted by Roy42 (165 posts) -

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.

#14 Posted by Shadow (4980 posts) -

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

#15 Posted by Sarkhan (1196 posts) -

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

#16 Posted by HatKing (5953 posts) -

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

#17 Posted by Death_Burnout (3797 posts) -

#21 Posted by Meowayne (6084 posts) -

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

#22 Posted by Hector (3365 posts) -

#23 Posted by Driadon (2998 posts) -

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

#24 Posted by albedos_shadow (1485 posts) -

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

#25 Posted by jakob187 (21672 posts) -

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!

#26 Posted by c1337us (5751 posts) -

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.

#27 Posted by duxup (354 posts) -

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

#28 Posted by spiceninja (3062 posts) -

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

#29 Posted by Pibo47 (3166 posts) -

Hand cannon=epic win. I want now.

#30 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11746 posts) -

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

#31 Posted by kboy (126 posts) -

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?

#32 Posted by Snail (8606 posts) -

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

#33 Posted by Civraz (392 posts) -

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

#34 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

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

#35 Posted by DukeTogo (1504 posts) -

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.

#36 Posted by pedantics (62 posts) -

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

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

#37 Posted by natetodamax (19207 posts) -

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

#38 Posted by pause422 (6188 posts) -

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

#39 Posted by DragoonKain1687 (702 posts) -

SOLD!

#40 Posted by elektrixx (308 posts) -

What? KOTAKU?

#41 Posted by AspiringAndy (332 posts) -

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

#44 Posted by RenegadeSaint (1548 posts) -

Must have.

#45 Posted by ArclightBorealis (1563 posts) -

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...
