Konami announces PSN/XBLA duo

Zombie Apocalypse and Vandal Hearts.

Konami has announced a pair of upcoming downloadable games for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, reviving the Vandal Hearts series and jumping on the zombie bandwagon in the process.

The latter is thanks to Zombie Apocalypse, an up-to-four-player top-down survive-'em-up where you and friends battle through 55 days of battles across seven environments using assault rifles, flamethrowers, chainsaws and that sort of thing.

There's single-console and online gameplay, seven unlockable game modes and no word on price. But you can stare at some screenshots.

Then there's Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment (thanks GameSpot), which is due out for XBLA in August and PSN in September.

Details on that one are even more scant, but apparently it puts you in control of Tobias Martin, with similar strategy RPG gameplay to the PSone original. We can barely remember either.
