“The House of the Dead 1 & 2” coming to Nintendo Switch in 2020
Forever Entertainment, the Polish development studio behind SEGA’s Panzer Dragoon remake, is reportedly hard at work on HD remakes of The House of the Dead 1 & 2 for Nintendo Switch planned to release sometime in 2020. It should be noted that this HotD collection features the first two games in the series – not 2 & 3 – which have been collected and rereleased previously. That means this will be the first time that The House of the Dead 1 will be available for a home console since the very rare (and pricy) SEGA Saturn port.
For those not familiar with the series, The House of the Dead is an action/horror light gun game released in arcades and ported to several consoles over the past two decades. It’s currently not known how these Nintendo Switch ports will be controlled, as there are no light guns currently available on the Switch and it’s unlikely that a light gun peripheral will be developed exclusively for two twenty-year-old arcade games. Perhaps this could be just the tip of the iceberg for a light gun renaissance? A guy can dream.
