Yay! And these are full-on remakes, not ports of the original games, probably because Sega lost the source code for the originals, but still great news all the same. 

I've said in the past Switch's joy con controls would be ideal for light gun games making their way onto the Switch, and while an actual light gun would be preferable, this would be a suitable alternative to the traditional light guns which sadly don't work, anymore on modern games.

Finally ! God damnit, I was waiting for these type of shooters to come out :D Now all we need is also a remake of Overkill,lol.

NIce, it's refreshing to see Sega actually remember their IP as of late and the potential it has.



Whoa! I wonder how the aiming will work?

Neither of the 2 sources mention switch as the platform.

Same compagny who's doing the remake for Panzer Dragoon, so I guess he assumed this would be also a job done for the Switch.

That's a fair point.

But it doesn't stop it being trash writing from the website



Compatible with VR perhaps?

You figure? 

Anyhoo. I usuallly don't come into threads to be negative, but...

These games were the most shallow of Sega's "shallow series" of arcade ports. Fun in short bursts at best. And disposable flotsom at worst. Sega's utter lack of understanding of what was important in a home port was on full display in the HOTD games. Despite Namco having shown them how to do it properly several years earlier. If any IP deserved Uwe Boll at it's cinematic helm, it was House Of The Dead.
