Typing of the Dead gets a budget re-release… in Japan! And for a good cause.

October 6, 2010

You’re probably wondering why Sega would choose to re-release this particular title, well apparentely it’s to help those looking for a job:

Sega is reviving its Typing of the Dead typing tutor program for a new tie-up with Rakuten’s job placement assistance site Minna no Shuushoku Katsudou Nikki.

A new version of Typing of the Dead will see PC release tomorrow (10/7) at the low price of ¥2,300. While it looks basically like the original Typing of the Dead, the twist comes in the word selection. Sega surveyed Minna no Shuushoku Katsudou Nikki members to collect 3,000 words related to job hunting and job placement. These words are used to fend off zombies in four mini games featured in the game’s “Job Hunting Mode.”
