House of the Dead: Overkill due in Feb

Pre-order to get the Collector's Edition.

SEGA has confirmed a release date - well, a release month - for Wii shooter House of the Dead: Overkill.

The game's due out in February 2009. If you pre-order it through "selected retailers" in PAL territories, you'll be able to claim a premium Collector's Edition.

This edition comes with an exclusive graphic novel, "Prelude to an Overkill", illustrated by Steve Copter of UK punk band Black Mekon.

SEGA's going all out for cult cachet on this one. Check out the House of the Dead: Overkill gamepage for some smart, Grindhouse-inspired trailers as well as our recent Hands On.

House of the Dead: Overkill is a trashy, 1970s-set prequel to the famed series of zombie-apocalypse lightgun games, and it's exclusive to Wii.
