Forever Entertainment plans to remake The House of the Dead 1 & 2 to modern consoles for 2020

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 1 & 2 Remake is targeting a release window of 2020 with no console announcement just yet. Since the House of the Dead games are rail shooters, where players are AMS agents destroying abominable creatures in their path, it may have a release on the Nintendo Switch.

What are your initial thoughts on The House of the Dead 1 & 2 being remade from the ground up? Would you have also like to see the games ported to modern consoles in it’s original format by SEGA & M2? Feel free to leave a comment below!

Fan Re-Imagines The House of the Dead 2 with Unreal Engine 4

Programmer and YouTube user, MoonGlint, has recreated and re-imagined the arcade classic light gun shooter, The House of the Dead 2, powered by the Unreal Engine 4 with short demonstration game play videos of the first level. It amazes me how fans can recreate classic video games with modern technology. Even the new installment, House of the Dead Scarlet Dawn, uses the Unreal Engine.

You can check out more game play clips after the break. Would you like to see The House of the Dead 1 & 2 reimaigned in Unreal Engine 4 for arcade and consoles? Let us know in the comments below.
