There’s good news for fans of House of the Dead around the world as this year has been teeming with news and details about a return to Sega’s most popular light-gun game in their history. This has been one of the biggest arcade news items of 2018 as the hugely-popular action horror arcade series has been dormant for more than a decade prior to the announcement of the new version by Sega.
For those who are not familiar with the games, House of the Dead is an action-horror video game series developed by Sega, with the first release hitting arcades back in 1996. To date, there have been 4 mainline releases, with a new one coming out later this year. Each installment plays the similar to the previous one: as an on-rails first-person shooter where the player uses a gun prop to shoot at the enemies that appear on the screen, which usually belong to the undead. In each game, there are two special agents that team up to fight against the zombie hordes and defeat the ones who unleashed them upon the landscape.
