Before Uwe Boll ruined it for everyone, The House Of The Dead was a cheesy fun shooter series. Yes, the voice acting was, let’s be honest, terrible. But that was all part of the charm. Heck, even Typing Of The Dead added even more goofy fun to the gameplay. Now, over ten years after the last entry in the series, Sega has announced House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn, which will be heading to Akihabara’s Club Sega later this month for a location test.
And yes, in case you’re wondering, that’s in Tokyo. Yeah, I know.
Scarlet Dawn will feature an all-new duo of protagonists as you work together to wipe out hordes of the undead, parasitic worms, chainsaw-wielding maniacs and other monstrocities. As with many modern arcade games, Scarlet Dawn will be played inside a claustrophobic cabinet.
No word yet on if the game will make an appearance in the West, either in arcades (well, what’s left of them), or a straight-up console port. Head on over to the official site to check out the cabinet, as well as screenshots of the game.
