House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut to support retro and modern 3D

So you, like myself, don’t own a sexy brand new HD stereoscopic 3D. It sucks, you can’t experience some games in their 3D mode. But SEGA has you covered, since House of the Dead: Overkill will support anaglyphic 3D. That means you can use those crappy 70’s paper, red and blue 3D glasses. Now that is the real grind house experience.

I uploaded a few screenshots, if you have some of those 3D glasses lying around, you can view them in 3D. If not you can view them anyway and type in the comment section how much you hate 3D.

Also confirmed in the press release (which will be attached to the post, after the jump) you can use a regular dual shock controller if you want! It supports Move for those that own the add-on.

Please note: These screenshots are in RED-CYAN anaglyphic 3D. That means you’ll need paper glasses with a red lens and a cyan lens to see them correctly. House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut supports RED-CYAN and GREEN-MAGENTA Anaglyphic 3D as well as active and passive Stereoscopic 3D.

    It’s nice that it’ll allow those who are not filthy rich to experience it in 3D anyway.

    It’s also nice that the game will support a regular controller, though to be honest, if you’re going to play it that way, I’d just buy the Wii version, since the Wii version will be better in that case.

    Otherwise, maybe you can find some used Moves for cheap? I’m sure there are lots of ’em.

    The cheapest I have found one used is about 60 with the camera and that sports game. I might get it, so I can properly review this title.

    That’s a nice touch! Even though retro 3D is aweful in HD, I’d love to try it for the game.

  4. -nSega54- says:

    It would probably add to the charm, actually.

    “Puts on some old paper red/blue 3D glasses”

    Hey! That actually works pretty good! Better than the crap Batman AA 3D.

  6. I like killing zombies and taking their mareyjuarna. Good day
