Forever Entertainment, the Polish publisher that has collaborated with SEGA with rebooting other classic titles such as Panzer Dragoon, will be remaking The House of the Dead 1 & 2 with MegaPixel Studio as the developer for the games and will be true to the original games’ storyline with some graphical differences and tweaked game play to bring them to modern day gaming.

The House of the Dead – 1997 Developer Interview

Because unlike Virtua Cop, the enemies here don’t have firearms.
We experimented with making the zombies more resilient, so they wouldn’t die in one hit, but this seemed to confuse a number of our testplayers.

Will it just be for the Switch or will it also be released on other platform, such as Steam?
Even better if VR variation.

Probably just like Panzer Dragoon Remake.
The made Switch version first, and months later PS4, X1, and PC version.
I dunno why they made Switch version first, probably because graphically it's the weakest.

Since it's developed by MegaPixel and produced by Forever Entertainment, the same guys that made Panzer Dragoon Remake, I'm hoping it will have a Steam release.

I'm also hoping it will have a VR-mode. I really want more milage for my Oculus Rift S and playing THotD in VR would be absolutely brilliant.

Yes, it's most likely only time-exclusive for switch.
Btw.. Did Panzer Dragoon Remake have a VR-mode on Steam?

From what I understand, Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record will be out later this year. I dunno if it's made by the same people though given it might be it's own spin-off game than a version of the remake.

Turned out they were being made by different developers. Voyage Record is by Wildman (https://panzerdragoon.fandom.com/wiki/Wildman,_Inc).

- Classic Mode and Horde Mode. No option to play the original HOTD; sources lost and it’s “impossible” to rip assets
– Price point may be in $15-20 range
– The controls were “tricky” to implement, but the remake team is not concerned over any possible backlash
– Blood color can be changed
– The HOTD remake improves daily, and is claimed to be in a better state today than when Panzer Dragoon: Remake was launched
- ....

No mention of VR on that list... which is a pity because I would really like a VR Mode.

While I can understand that being an on-rail shooter may cause nausia in a virtual reality, I would really like to shoot some ideas and suggestions to Forever on how they could make HotD more VR friendly.
