House of The Dead – Scarlet Dawn

One of my favorite console (Sega Dreamcast) games which definitely took up plenty of my time was House of The Dead 2 which made it’s debut on the home market in 1998 is making a return to the arcades of Japan. The SEGA arcade in Akihabara will be the testing grounds for the new machines with dates announced for a full run in other locations which means I need to schedule a trip to Tokyo soon since because it could be quite a while, if ever that they’ll make it an appearance here in the states. Β Where is the old school NY Chinatown Arcade when you need it!?

House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn is confirmed to be running on Unreal Engine 4 and has confirmed it will get a theater-style deluxe arcade cabinet which will have vibrating seats. The cabinet will also use motion sensors. Who knows, maybe if VR catches on, SEGA can have a easy port on their hands.
