It’s been almost a decade since gamers’ have seen the release of a House of the Dead game. But, SEGA is back in the zombie-brain-busting business, announcing the latest installment; House Of The Dead: Scarlet Dawn. And, it looks like this time around we’ve even more creatures to penetrate with lead; including parasitic worms, and robotic monsters. Like most modern day arcade games, Scarlet Dawn will invite its heroes inside a claustrophobic cabinet, offering surround sound, 3D effects, and heartbeat monitors to amplify the terror and tension.

House Of The Dead: Scarlet Dawn is having a preview gaming session later this month. If you happen to find yourself in Tokyo, you can play it at Sega Akihabara Building 3 from January 19th to January 21st. Though there is no word yet on Western release, knowing the popularity of the franchise, I’m sure we’ll see them popping up this side of our quaint, carbon-based planet very soon.

Well horror fiends, I don’t know about you – but I’m a bit of an arcade junkie. I’ll be headed right towards one of those ‘claustrophobic cabinets’ the second it lands on our continent.
