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.

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.

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.

Streets of Rage Remake Shutdown by Sega Legal

The Streets of Rage Remake fan project we told you about last week has been shut down by Sega's legal department.  According to the game's official forums, "While this issue is being resolved, please do not upload the game for others to download.
