We all held our breath when Sega announced it had a surprise planned for the Leipzig Game Conference. Could it be a fresh Jet Set Radio game? A Daytona title? Surely not ... Shenmue III? Well, it's none of those, but House of the Dead: Overkill still appears to be awe to the some. Though a competent House of the Dead game already exists on the Wii, our toes curled with excitement upon watching the trailer above, with its grindhouse stylings and tongue-in-cheek commentary.

House of the Dead: Overkill is due out next year and, as has been previously mentioned, is being worked on by Headstrong. Hit up our gallery for the first screens and some of the best Wii boxart you'll see this year.
