Developed by the MegaPixel Studio team for Forever Entertainment, The House of the Dead remake will arrive on January 20, 2023 on PlayStation 5. The other good news is that players who already own the PlayStation 4 version will receive a free update so they can indulge in the joys of zombie dismemberment on their favorite next-gen console. This version comes after the Xbox Series X|S edition from last September.
For the rest, nothing really new to get your teeth into. The House of the Dead Remake is a modernized version of the hit SEGA released in 1996 in arcades. Featuring revised and corrected graphics for gameplay similar to that of the era, this remake includes a photo mode, various game modes and image galleries. As in the good old days, it is still possible to play locally with two people, but you will have to be content with having DualSense in your hands rather than lightguns.
Although this new version of House of the Dead has not necessarily convinced players and critics, it has at least the merit of bringing back the zombies of SEGA on our state-of-the-art screens. A horrific answer to Virtua Cop, The House of the Dead comes from the brain of Takashi Oda. The app features agents Thomas Rogan and G whose mission is to investigate what is happening in Doctor Curien’s mansion… visibly infested with demonic creatures.
With a very short lifespan (less than an hour of play to go around it), it requires good reflexes to repel armies of monsters that throw themselves on the player. Having been codenamed The Horror Show, Zombie and The Deadly Dead during its development, The House of the Dead has quickly become a cult arcade and Saturn title.. To date, we are still without news of the hypothetical adaptation on home consoles of The House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn, the last episode of the series. We are also awaiting news about The House of the Dead 2 Remake officially announced by Forever Entertainment in 2019.
