    Best case is repackaging the PC version for Steam with an unlockable HotD2 mouse cursor mode. Didn't Overkill (despite me loving it) sell poorly? In Sega's current mindset, if a game doesn't sell over 1 million units it just gets an iOS port or an HD rerelease.

    EDIT: Wait.

    No.

    TYPING OVERKILL?!

    Someone said SPELLED, so I'm going with that.

    This makes the most sense, being an awful pun yet relevant to Sega. So a new Typing then, the only question is on what... and I do have an awful feeling this is a mobile port, which will be just lovely when you consider how fucking horrible touchscreens are for any sort of real typing.

    I missed getting Typing of the Dead on the Dreamcast, despite having the DC keyboard, and wouldn't mind seeing it re-released on the PC, but I worry about portable ports myself. Even on the 3DS, something like Typing of the Dead would be a nightmare, at best. Pecking away at a touchscreen with one finger is mind-numbing for writing, as handy as it is to have on the go.

    This could probably work on larger tablets with multi-touch, though, but the virtual keyboard might take up a lot of screen space.

    Betting on this as well.
    Sega is just stupid enough to do that.

    To be fair, Screwattack's iOS Typing of the Dead homage, Texting of the Bread, was pretty good. It was noticeably slower than the Dreamcast game (but it still got really hectic later on), but I didn't have problems playing that couldn't be attributed to my nervous breaks in games.
     
  11. There's a different rumor that it's "guts will be BERSERK" (meaning Sega got the rights to make a Berserk game again and "guts" would be the hint more than the blank word)

    Of course, knowing Sega teasers... everyone could be wrong, and disappointed.

    That's not a rumor, that's a guess by someone on NeoGAF. :v:

    No seriously if this is Typing of the Dead for mobile devices, I'm coming after you. You know who you are.

    Throwing my hat into this betting pool as well. Either that or an HD remake exclusively for Steam.

    I know the general attitude is "iOS and mobile games are the last thing we want", but I'd be all for an English release of Flick of the Dead. And I think the level of teasing from SEGA is at an appropriate level if that is the game we're getting. Now if it was a teaser website with a ton of hype, I'd be annoyed, but as is it has only been two tweets.

    Oh, it's not that I'm all against a mobile release, it's fine with me, but since I only have an ancient iPod Touch I'm still holding out some hope for something else. :p
