House of the Dead 1&2 Remakes by Forever Entertainment Confirmed

Friday, October 4th, 2019

Currently working on a Switch remake of Panzer Dragoon, Forever Entertainment have now confirmed they will be developing remakes of the original 2 The House of the Dead titles.

No platforms have been specified at this time, but given that the Panzer Dragoon remake is coming to Switch, it’s a safe bet that the Switch will be one of the platforms that Forever Entertainment will be targeting.

It’ll be interesting to see how Forever Entertainment develop a modern on-rails shooter as it is not a genre that has seen much of a resurgence this generation. We’re only speculating but perhaps they will incorporate gyroscopic controls or VR support.

Hopefully it isn’t too long before we get to see Forever Entertainment’s efforts. The company have stated that it would be wise to follow their official channels if you’re interested in any of their SEGA remake projects.

Forever Entertainment Announce Remakes of Panzer Dragoon I and II: Zwei

In what can only be described as a surprise announcement, Forever Entertainment (responsible for titles such as Fear Effect: Sedna) have announced they are to co-create and publish remakes of SEGA classics Panzer Dragoon and Panzer Dragoon II: Zwei!

The remakes are planned to include a graphical overhaul and new gameplay features to better suit a modern audience, while maintaining the original story of the games. The first material from the game is planned to be shown in the coming months, with Panzer Dragoon: Remake planned to release in late 2019. The remakes are being produced in tandem with SEGA’s Japanese division.

We’ll keep you up to date when any further news comes out – it’s extremely exciting to see titles from the Saturn era getting some love, and in what sounds like a fairly nice package to boot.

Cancelled Shenmue 1 & 2 Remakes Revealed by Digital Foundry

Monday, October 15th, 2018

Digital Foundry have managed to get their hands on some work-in-progress footage of a cancelled Shenmue 1 & 2 remake project. Unlike d3t’s Shenmue I & II, this would have been a complete remake of the game with more detailed assets, textures and lighting. Check out the video below to see a comparison of this footage versus Shenmue I & II:

There’s a full article that breaks down what is being shown in the footage and what it does differently to the eventual release of Shenmue I & II. There’s also some speculation as to why these remakes were cancelled in favour of the upscaled HD ports we eventually got. Digital Foundry suggests the remakes were cancelled due to budget restraints and delays.
