As of late, it seems like the PlayStation Move is as attractive to zombies as a bug killer lamp is to mosquitoes. Starting next month, in fact, a fresh new horde of undead and biofreaks is expected to hit the PSN courtesy of Sega and Capcom.
Having already released the Move-compatible HD remakes of The House of the Dead: Overkill and The House of the Dead III, Sega will be the first to re-open the gates of hell with The House of the Dead 4, the first ever home console adaptation of the classic arcade light gun shooter (2005).
Featuring an offline multiplayer mode, multiple paths stages, a ranking and grading system and additional levels from the “Special” edition, The House of the Dead 4 will be deployed on the US and EU PlayStation Stores on April 17th and 18th respectively at the price of $9.99/£6.49/€7.99.
As stated on the US PlayStation Blog, a PS+ exclusive demo will be available on the US PlayStation Store for two weeks starting from April 10th. And then, from April 17th to May 1st, PS+ members will have access to a 30% discount on the full game.
Going by the EU PlayStation Blog post, it doesn’t seem like the demo will be available to Europeans, but PS+ membership will still grant the time limited 30% discount (from April 18th to May 3rd).
As for Capcom, its Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection (which includes HD remakes of previously Wii-only shooters Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles) will be available for download in North America and Europe sometime in June. Just like Sega’s offering, the collection will feature local two players co-op.
Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will initially be sold as a discounted two games bundle, but at a later date, each of the titles will be available for purchase separately.
