According to the ESRB
, Sega is preparing to rekindle its love affair with light gun game ports for the Wii. Having already released House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return
and Ghost Squad
on Nintendo's console, it looks like Sega is adding both Gunblade NY
and LA Machineguns
to the collection of rehashes (in addition to the excellent, original title House of the Dead: Overkill
). It appears that both games will be combined in a single package, as the ESRB has rated "Gunblade NY & LA Machineguns Arcade Hits Pack
" for Wii.
If you missed out on either game in the arcades of yore, both involved flying around cityscapes and hosing down enemies with machine gun fire. Of course -- barring the release of a massive
Wiimote peripheral -- the Wii version probably won't share the arcade version's fierce force feedback. The revelation of continued light gun game ports also raises a very important question: What's a gamer gotta do to get some Virtua Cop?
Make it happen, Sega.
