You'd be forgiven for forgetting that The House Of The Dead: Remake actually existed. Publisher Forever Entertainment and developer MegaPixel Studio first announced that they were working on remaking several entries in the classic arcade shooter franchise back in 2019, but we really haven't heard very much at all in the time since. Until now, that is.
Forever Entertainment has finally shared a first look at The House Of The Dead: Remake in action, and it's looking great. Somewhat bizarrely, the footage was revealed towards the back end of a Nintendo Direct presentation focused on indies, specifically as part of a rapid-fire montage of other titles coming this year. Way to bury the lede. Fortunately, the publisher released a full trailer moments after Nintendo's show had wrapped up, giving us our first full look at the reimagined classic running on Nintendo Switch.

As you can see, The House Of The Dead: Remake has received a fair bit of visual polish, but its over-the-top B movie charm, arcade gameplay, and hammy voice acting remains the same as it ever was. This definitely looks like the real deal.
"The House Of The Dead: Remake is a remade version of the game introduced in 1997 in arcade platform," writes Forever Entertainment. "A classic arcade rail-shooter receives a whole new entourage and gameplay changes to suit modern gaming standards."
It's unclear at present what these new changes might be, but we do know that we can expect local co-op. The ability to share high-scores on an online leaderboard is also a pretty safe bet. Expect more information on The House Of The Dead: Remake in the coming months. The game launches "later this year" for Nintendo Switch. No word on other platforms yet, so we'll have to wait and see.
