House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn (2018)
Release Date: 13 September 2018 (Japan)
Developer: SEGA Interactive R&D#1
Publisher: SEGA Interactive
Series: The House of the Dead
Platforms: Arcade
Genre: Light gun shooter


Despite named differently from the previous game, House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn is the actual fifth main installment in The House of the Dead series, and developed by the same SEGA R&D1 team.

The basic "Shoot the zombies (officially called "Creatures") before before they attack you" system is the same, but Scarlet Dawn adds two new elements, "Game Mode Select" and "Item Select". The game mode is divided into NORMAL or MASTER (for the latter case, the enemy's overall health and quantity is overwhelmingly increased), the player can use two optional items (most are weapons, but Life recovery items and Shield items are also selectable) in both modes (although, in the Japanese version of NORMAL mode, the player must use the Aime ID card)

Submachine Guns and Machine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP7A1

AMS agents Ryan Taylor (a younger brother of James Taylor) and Kate Green mainly use Heckler & Koch MP7A1s fitted with aftermarket iron sights and vertical foregrips. It is called the "Machine Gun" and holds 30 rounds in the (presumably) 20-round magazine.

The player also can use more powerful and reload-less variants, called the "Machine Gun +" and "Machine Gun EX".

An MP7 also appears as the game's gun controller, equipped with two item selector switches (the foregrip and fire selector respectively). The player also can feel their current weapons firing and reloading through the built-in feedback function and speaker.
