SEGA Interactive has just announced House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn for arcades. They have confirmed that there will be location testing from January 19 to the 21st at SEGA Akihabara Building 3 in Tokyo, Japan.

This release will mark a return of the franchise to the Arcades, the last main entry being The House of the Dead 4 back in 2005. In 2009 we got the console exclusive The House of the Dead: Overkill, which was mean’t to be a prequel and had a different take on the series.

House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn is confirmed to be running on Unreal Engine 4 and has confirmed it will get a theater-style deluxe arcade cabinet which will have vibrating seats. The cabinet will also use motion sensors. Who knows, maybe if VR catches on, SEGA can have a easy port on their hands.

    More interest in HotD is always good. I play the first one almost every day on my computer using my light gun hooked up to an external monitor. Can’t wait to try this game if it gets exported to the US in Dave & Buster’s locations. The cabinet looks thrilling, as does that boss in the pics. I see too many Walking Dead games in our arcades nowadays, lol. I want House of the Dead back!

    Sega is on a roll for this year, so far! Now, I hope a new Virtua Fighter is next.
