Ai Sareruyori Ai Shitai: The House of the Dead EX (愛されるより愛シタイ ~THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD EX~), also known in Europe as Loving Deads: The House of the Dead EX, is a spin-off to the House of the Dead series released by Sega. It was released exclusively to Japanese arcades in 2009. The game concerns a young zombie couple, Zobio and Zobiko, who seek to escape from captivity.

The game deviates from the mainline House of the Dead series by consisting of minigames with boss battles in between. The minigames are played with a light gun in addition to foot pedals on the arcade cabinet.

EX runs on the Sega Lindbergh, the same arcade board which runs The House of the Dead 4. The game was slated for release in December 2008, but was delayed, and released later in 2009. The game has never received releases outside of Japan; however, the English language version on the BIOS of the ROM can be selected, in addition to the original Japanese language.

Gameplay

Each stage consists of minigames which utilize the cabinet's light guns (e.g. shooting apples) and foot pedals (e.g. stomping spiders). Players go through the stages by choosing between two or three pairs of minigames before fighting a boss at the end. The goal of each minigame is to fulfill a quota within the time limit. Failure to do so costs a life.
