The excitement of the latest installment of SEGA’s best selling arcade shooter cannot be contained as House of the Dead Scarlet Dawn is set to be released in all Dave & Busters locations sometime this October just in time for Halloween according to Dave & Buster’s Senior VP, Kevin Bachus on Reddit. He also states that it is the best by far in the franchise. Meanwhile over in Japan, SEGA has released another location test version House of the Dead Scarlet Dawn at the High-Tech Land SEGA Shibuya with more changes made. You can check out location test details over here.

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!
