First Look at House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn in Action | Video Spotlight

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

The lovely people over at ThrowBack Tokyo have recorded some extensive off-screen footage of House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn in action at the recent location test in Akihabara. As the footage shows, it’s very much the House of the Dead sequel we’ve all been waiting for, complete with campy voice acting and over-the-top, zombie-shooting action. Like The House of Dead 4, the violence has been toned down somewhat, with the zombies now burning away when they’re dispatched. However, the amount of on-screen zombies has been drastically increased. Click the embed below to see for yourself:

The extremely rare 1993 Sonic-themed shooting game SEGASonic Cosmo Fighter Galaxy Patrol has finally been dumped and is now available to play within the MAME emulator.
