UPDATE: Our friends at Arcade Heroes confirmed with Sega that the target shipping date for a “limited number” of HOTDSD units is September, with a broader release taking place closer to November/December in time for IAAPA 2018. Word has it that several “big box FECs” saw news of the game earlier this year and placed orders, taking up the first planned production run. Either way, it sounds like it won’t be too difficult to come across this one later this year.
SEGA Amusements made an announcement on their Facebook social media a couple of hours ago that House of the Dead Scarlet Dawn is coming to western arcades soon. It’s good to see the series making a comeback and this also sleds light to console versions as well. Expect to see Scarlet Dawn arcade cabinets around your local GameWorks and Dave & Busters hopefully sometime this year!
House of the Dead’s very own Big Boy, Chariot, and many other SEGA characters join in a Sega Legends War collaboration with Code of Joker Ver.2.3.ex2 with additional 40 new cards. For those who don’t know, Card of Joker is a Japanese SEGA arcade card game with the trading cards only appear digitally, and the game is played solely with the touch screen. It’s astandard one on one card battler, with no genre or spin mixed within.
7 characters can be chosen with all their specific joker cards with all their special abilities. Then you have the Unit Card, which are the monsters which are divided into warrior, monster, genius, devil, angel, machine, hero and more. Combination monsters can also be summoned to help the units, just like the character you choose. Non-monster cards are the Trigger cards, which activate when you attack and then there are Inticaptor cards that activate on enemy players.
As we wait for further news on the upcoming House of the Dead game. Here is the trailer of the Code of Joker collaboration.
SEGA will be scheduling a live stream event at the Japan Amusement Expo on February 10th and 11th showcasing their arcade line up in 2018 including House of the Dead Scarlet Dawn.
