Sorry, I'm not referring an update of the underappreciated 16-bit Konami game here. I just couldn't think of a better headline to write about the upcoming DS game, Touch of the Dead. (By the way, the aforementioned game, Zombies At My Neighbors, will be coming to the Wii Virtual Console soon enough, so those of you who have fond memories of it will be able to run around and slaughter the undead on your Wii anytime now...)
Anyway, back to the topic at hand: Touch of the Dead. I'm sure this game, being developed by Dream On Studio and published by Eidos Interactive, is far from unknown or underappreciated, but I personally just heard about it yesterday. I had seen the title here and there and wondered what it was all about--is it another of Sega's great House of the Dead games?--but that was about as far as my curiosity took me.
A preview posted yesterday to IGN.com clued me in to what this upcoming game (release date: May 15) has to offer. And while it isn't technically a part of Sega's series of lightgun-based shooters, it's certainly inspired by it. To learn more, check out IGN's preview here.
Want to learn more about Zombies Ate My Neighbors before it's unleashed on the Wii? Here's a nice rundown of the title (which was released on the SNES and Genesis back in the day) on Wikipedia.
