Sega Bringing Back House Of The Dead For Japanese Arcades

Sega has announced a new House of the Dead game more in line with the previous games in the series than the 2009 Wii title Overkill.

The new game, simply titled House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn, is set to be released in Club Sega, the publisher's own arcade in Tokyo with a whole whopping single cabinet. It is, however, two player and features some gimmicks like an air cannon and moving seats within the cabinet. That makes it sound too expensive to end up in any smaller arcades.

House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn next week at Club Sega, so if you're nearby, you can try it out. There is no word on whether the game might ever come to consoles, but here's hoping.


Our Take
I ended up really liking Overkill, but it's nice to have a return to a less Grindhouse of the dead. Hopefully Sega brings this to consoles or, at the very least, has a stripped down cabinet for smaller arcades in the west.
