Earlier today we got several announcements as part of the Nintendo Indie Showcase that displayed a lot of smaller scale games to look forward to. One of those games, tucked away in the presentation, was the return of a classic franchise with The House of the Dead: Remake. Seemingly out of nowhere, the remake has been unveiled with a new trailer.

The game is being done by developer MegaPixel Studio and publisher Forever Entertainment. They are licensing the IP out from Sega, the original creators of the property in a deal that seems to be similar to their Panzer Dragoon one that saw a remake of the first title in that franchise last year. The trailer highlights improved visuals, but the same old zombie shooting fans know and love. If you aren’t familiar, this was originally an arcade title developed by Sega where you navigated a mansion filled with zombies and other undead threats that released way back in 1996 for arcades, and then was ported to the Sega Saturn. Forever Entertainment actually announced they were working on a remake of the game, as well as its sequel, way back in 2019, but this is the first official reveal.

The House of the Dead: Remake has been announced to release on Nintendo Switch, but as of now, no release timeframe is set.
