The House of the Dead: Remake – Switch
Another classic being brought back, like a zombie. The House of the Dead: Remake is a remake of the game originally released in 1996 for Sega arcades. An important part of its gameplay at the time was the revolver-shaped controls that we found in these stations – Who doesn’t remember those in the malls? Although Sega licensed the name and rights for the remake, the company was not directly involved in the project and the resources of the original game were not used, so we will see soon this experience will be revived for the Nintendo Switch.
House of the Dead: Remake is being made by the folks at MegaPixel Studio and produced by Forever Entertainment. In the release of the game, the companies say that the game is a “classic” rail-shooter receiving changes to “fit the standards of modern games”. Among the game’s features are:
- Local multiplayer for two players
- shooting mode
- multiple endings
- Arsenal with weapons to be released
- A new game mode
- Gallery with Enemies and Bosses Encountered
