House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn

Sega Interactive has announced House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn for arcades. A preliminary location test will be held in Japan from January 19 to 21 at Sega Akihabara Building 3 in Tokyo, Japan.

House of the Dead is a horror-themed gun shooting game series first launched in arcades in 1997. Since then, the series has expanded to home consoles, smartphones, movies, and more.

House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn promises “never before experienced horror” in a theater-style arcade cabinet that uses the latest technology. Unreal Engine 4 is being used for the graphics engine, and the number of creatures that appear on screen will be the highest in the series yet. The arcade cabinet is equipped with mechanics such as air cannons and vibrating seats, which activate based on the player’s progression. It also has a motion sensor that lights up the outside of the cabinet to attract passerby players.
