Get a taste of this beat 'em up remake ahead of the final release.

Night Slashers: Remake Demo Arrives on Steam

Night Slashers: Remake from Storm Trident and Forever Entertainment is a promising remake of the classic Data East beat 'em up arcade game. Of course, it's hard to tell how accurate and/or improved a remake of an older game like Night Slashers will be before we can play it. We have a solid idea now, thankfully, because a free demo of the remake has arrived on Steam. The demo supports 2-player local co-op, but the full game will be 4-player.

Feilin joins the roster of this horror-themed beat 'em up revival.

Night Slashers: Remake Adds a Guest Character From Fighter's History

Remaking well-known games is cool, but there's something to be said for reviving cult classics as well. Forever Entertainment has dipped its toes in both ends, releasing the pretty good House of the Dead: Remake and promising Night Slashers: Remake later this year. Data East's Night Slashers might not be the most famous beat 'em up, but it's worth remembering. The remake will be even more memorable thanks to the addition of Liu Feilin, a guest character from a Data East fighting game called Fighter's History.

Forever Entertainment Announces Night Slashers: Remake

Before eventually going out of business, Data East released numerous arcade games across a variety of genres. While many of their games are lesser known, various collections, re-releases, and remakes continue to trickle out. Joe & Mac, for instance, has already seen a remake in the form of New Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja from Microids. Now Forever Entertainment (makers of The House of the Dead: Remake) is throwing their hat into the ring with Night Slashers: Remake, an HD version of Data East's cult classic beat 'em up.

New Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja Co-op Review

Grab a sci-fi blaster for gun games like House of the Dead Remake!

Martian Panic Alien Blaster: Nintendo Switch Accessory Review

The Switch is no stranger to light gun-style games, but these games lack a certain authenticity when played without a prop gun. That's where the Martian Panic Alien Blaster from Fun Box Media comes in. Originally bundled with the game, Martian Panic, the blaster turns a Joy-Con into an alien blaster with lights and sounds. It's a unique accessory that works with games like The House of the Dead Remake, not just Martian Panic.

The House of the Dead: Remake Co-op Review

The original House of the Dead arcade game is one of the titles for which Sega famously lost the source code, hence there were no further ports of the game after the Saturn and PC versions in 1998. Despite the first game’s limited availability, it would go on to spawn numerous sequels and even a terrible Uwe Boll film. Now, more than 20 years...

House of the Dead: Remake Returns to Life on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC on April 28

Exclusives aren’t necessarily a good thing for gamers, so it’s nice when a timed exclusive heads to more platforms. When the Switch version of The House of the Dead: Remake arrived at the beginning of April, we predicted that other versions wouldn’t be far behind. That has now proven to be true, because Forever Entertainment just announced that HotD: Remake will launch on Xbox, PlayStation, Stadia, and PC on April 28. That’s not a terribly long wait for beefier versions of the classic horror-themed shooter.

The House of the Dead: Remake's Performance Mode Is the Way to Play on Switch

The House of the Dead: Remake is finally available on Nintendo Switch. Resurrected by Forever Entertainment, the same masterminds behind Panzer Dragoon: Remake, this new release is a faithful from-the-ground-up recreation of SEGA's original House of the Dead light-gun arcade game. Naturally, it substantially improves the graphics over those of the aging 1996 arcade game. The Switch version also adds an optional performance mode in order to keep the frame rate high. Gaze upon our many screenshots of the first level to see!

House of the Dead: Remake to Escape Onto Switch This April

The remake didn't arrive as planned last year, but the wait will finally come to an end soon. House of the Dead: Remake will arrive on Nintendo Switch at the beginning of April, complete with the series' traditional 2-player local co-op.
