Sega seems to be really happy with their relationships with Nintendo and surely Wii owners are happy with Sega, the company published two of the most violent games in the Wii to satisfy the Hardcore players, both M-Rated games were critically acclaimed but what about the sales?
The game already holds the "world record" for having the most foul language, but what about reaching an even more important goal, like sales? Seems like Sega is happy with how House of the Dead: Overkill is performing, and does this mean a sequel is coming?
VB: Sega is also going after the core audience with games like House of the Dead: Overkill and Mad World. How are consumers responding to those Mature-rated titles?
SR: House of the Dead has done very well and has absolutely met our expectations. The first set of data for Mad World is very encouraging, as well.
VB: Do you see franchise potential for Mad World with sequels?
SR: If it resonates with the audience, yes, we absolutely want to make that into a franchise. I think it’s unique, and there are many aspects of that game which are sort of pushing boundaries. And it’s just great fun.
