The wait is finally here! House of the Dead Scarlet Dawn is now available to play at Japanese arcade centers and soon to Dave and Busters here in the states. SEGA has updated their official House of the Dead website as well with tons of details on the latest release in the series on story, system mechanics, character bios, creatures and more. The website also has a point and click minigame where the player can earn highscores by shooting creatures across the hall. By completing the minigame, you can tweet your score on Twitter and be eligible to win a poster (Only ships in Japan).
For the rest of the week, The Website of the Dead will continue updating with more details on Scarlet Dawn including character artwork in the character gallery section and trivia. Here’s a offscreen full playthrough by player SpeedBeatz.
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.
