As for what we know about the remakes for The House of the Dead and its sequel, there isn’t much to go on. The games are apparently being developed by MegaPixel Studio, and we should expect the first game to have a release before the end of 2020.
Apparently the plan is that both games will be completely updated for modern times, with newer graphics and gameplay controls. However, the games will indeed utilize the scenarios from the original games – keeping the spirit and atmosphere from The House of the Dead intact. After all, the original games are some of the most beloved zombie game classics alongside titles like Resident Evil. It’ll be nice to see them find their way into the present for newer gamers or those who grew up with them and want to try the titles out with modern setups.
Hopefully as we get closer to the release date for the remake of the first The House of the Dead, we’ll learn more about platforms and those kinds of details. Until then, stay tuned for more information as we get it.
