Sega Reveals House of the Dead: Overkill Naked Terror on PS3

164w ago - Sega Public Relations Manager David Bruno has revealed details today on House of the Dead: Overkill Naked Terror for the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: I'm pleased to be able to reveal some more exclusive news for you; this time in the form of a new level reveal.

We're proud to announce the details for the first of two exclusive levels from the Extended Cut; Naked Terror.

Naked Terror sees you fighting your way through a strip club (a real hardship I know), the streets of Bayou City and a bar, and not only do you have new environments to battle your way through, you also have new stripper and biker mutants to contend with.

The other cool aspect to this new level is who you play as, for this level G and Wash are elsewhere, leaving you to take control of Varla (previously an NPC in the original Overkill) and her stripper friend Candy.

Candy seems to have the required staples for any standard stripper: she has a heart of gold, is wholesome, innocent, yet can be naïve to the world. There is one big difference though between her and her stripper brethren; our heroine is pretty handy with a hand cannon, and skilfully adept at taking down enemies. Sounds like my kind of woman really.

There are connections between her and Jasper (the boss at the...
