House of the Dead PS4 PlayStation 4 1

There’s a new House of the Dead game being location tested in Japanese arcades, and SEGA is surveying fans about the possibility of a console port. Entitled Scarlet Dawn and set three years after House of the Dead 4, the title sees you wielding Uzis to off the undead, and appears to have the title’s trademark atrocious “voice acting” intact.

And according to a ResetEra member who posted photos of the cabinet, the Japanese publisher is quizzing fans on whether they’d be interested in a console version upon trying the title out. To be fair, various House of the Dead games – including the ridiculous Nintendo Wii title Overkill – ended up on the PlayStation 3, so this doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibility.

It’d be interesting to see how SEGA would handle a console port should it go ahead with it. A game like this seems like a natural fit for PlayStation VR, but obviously the arcade version has been built with a traditional display in mind, so a virtual reality conversion would be unlikely. It’d have to at least be compatible with PlayStation Move, though, right? Otherwise, what’s the point?
