I saw this and got excited, because it seems like old school "light gun" style games went away with the Wii. By the way, the Sega logo wasn't used in the trailer. What's up with that?
Same with Streets of Rage 4, Shenmue 3, and Panzer Dragoon remake. Sega has been licensing out their IPs to other publishers/developers quite a bit lately.
It's this. You could also add the Wonder Boy/Monster World games to that list, Sega is just lending their IPs - I thought their logo should be in here anyway, but I don't know how these contracts work.
By the way, this remake is by the same developer of the Panzer Dragoon Remake, which plays *almost* like a 1:1 copy of the original, so I'm guessing it'll probably be another very faithful remake. The visuals have a "small budget" feel to them, but The House of the Dead always had a b-movie look, so it doesn't bother me.
