SEGA's Wii Remote Shell

#1 Edited by Linkyshinks (11403 posts) -

To celebrate the release of the new House of the Dead: Overkill on Wii, SEGA has teamed up with peripheral company Venom to bring out a new Wiimote shell.

This shell is modeled after the "Hand Cannons" that the AMS agents from the new game carry, and is appropriately named.

Amazon UK will be taking pre-orders for the games February 13th release, at the price of 12.99

It is unknown whether the shell will be made available in the US at this point.

Thanks to Wii Fanboy

Urgh. I shouldn't want this. But I kinda do. Already got a preorder for the special edition of House Of The Dead.

Urgh. Think I'll have to pass. £12.99 is a bit too steep for another Wii remote shell.

True shame that persona 3 is not on the Wii.

Wow, I was expecting something lame but that actually looks really cool.

There's a Wii Fanboy website?, give me a break, they must have hundreds of posts saying "WELL AT LEAST WE HAVE FUN WITH OUR CONSOLES".

Why the hell does the UK keep getting all the good Overkill stuff?
Sega is soooo racist.

They just won't stop making stuff up for that damn remote.

Err there's also an XBOX, PS3, PSP and DS one?

This for me is the best shell out there, much better than the Perfect Shot in terms of design. I much prefer this classic minimal look.

The game itself looks like a very fun OTT game, but to be perfectly honest I had little interest in it before, despite those awesome adverts. The thing is I don't have a single Lightgun style game on Wii yet. Perhaps this game should end that.

No details on whether this will arrive in the US, but I can see no reason why they wont release it. Of course U.S gamers could always import it from Amazon UK or any other online retailer who will stock them.

I was totally coming in here to bash something, but that actually looks, dare I say?  Kinda cool?

That's... awesome. I am surprised. Normally, I find all those plastic attachments rather irritating and stupid, but this one I might actually buy. Looks pretty neat. Although it's a side shot. I guess it looks a bit less sleek when you see how thick it really is.

Wii, 360, PC, DS, and PSP fanboy are all great sources of news for individual consoles.

Lolz. Then people would be blaming games for suicide.

The more I look at it, the more I want it!

Kind of reminds me of my wife's 357 Magnum.

So this "Bang Bang Box" that someone has uploaded a picture of GiantBomb: where's that coming out. Because I want to update my preorder to that if it's out in the UK. No sign of it on Amazon.

Looks great but £12.99 is too much for some moulded plastic

" - House of the Dead Collector's Edition Game includes Collector's Sleeve and exclusive Prelude to an Overkill Graphic Novel starring Valla Guns!

- 2x HOTD commissioned AMS Hand Cannons. These are a replica of tthe hand cannons used by Agent G in the game. The hand cannons will also allow firing from the triffer with a new advanced mechanism that allows the player to shoot as they would in real life."

Do want.

(Good thing my import shop will most probably sell it. :D )

Another reason to look forward to the Wii's 2009. :D
