In an age where remakes, reboots and remasters are becoming more frequent in the gaming industry, it seems like we're dipping into the arcade classics for modern revivals. At Nintendo's recent indie showcase, they revealed that The House of the Dead Remake will be heading to the Switch later this year. The remake adapts the original 1996 classic, which many may remember as a staple in most arcades. It's given a huge graphical facelift, but the traditional on-rails shooting remains intact.

Publisher Forever Entertainment and developer MegaPixel Studio have revealed The House of the Dead Remake, coming to Nintendo Switch later this year. Forever Entertainment previously announced that they'd be remaking a number of House of the Dead games, but this seems to be the first (with potentially more to come). The original focused on Agent Thomas Rogan or his partner G making their way through a spooky mansion filled with legions of the undead. If you had enough coins to get to the ending, you'll discover darker secrets behind the entire operation. Check out the trailer below:
