If House Of The Dead Had 3D Zombies And A Vitality Sensor…

It would be Dark Escape 3D. Namco Bandai’s zombie shooting game uses a cabinet similar to Let’s Go Island 3D or Deadstorm Pirates since you sit down and aim a turret at oncoming zombies. What’s unique about Dark Escape 3D is the controller reads your pulse and sees if you stay calm when the game tries to scare you. It’s like the Vitality Sensor came back from the dead! (sorry…)


Dark Escape 3D also has rumbling seats and air guns that shoot puffs of air at players. I suppose this makes Namco Bandai’s four stage horror shooting game comparable to the rare House of the Dead 4 Special.

    Whoooa. That is crazy right there.

  • I’d play it only because I still like light gun games.

  • I miss these type of arcade games T.T . I liked this arcade so much back in the day :(


  • rinalicat

    If I had someone with me, I’d totally play this game!

  • Hahahaha, that’s interesting. Maybe not as scary as depicted, but it’s a cool concept.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Time to bring my little sister to play with me here.^^ It is going to be so fun hearing her keep screaming there lol.^^

  • My God, I think Horror + 3d = Scared my sh*t out for most of the game.
    I’d probably scream my lung out, and my little sis will either join me or ask me to shut up. 

    The stages:

    -Execution ground
    -Mountain inn
    -Ultimate Stage
    …………….Well if I had to choose….. Ja ne!!! *ZB says no* FIIIIIINE, prison or mountain inn.

    And the last scene D: It feels lk a alien shout-out though.

  • Göran Isacson

    … Is it sad if this just made me sigh longingly for days olf old and massive arcade cabinets, instead of scaring me? Because I think it is kind of sad.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    We need a PS3 port with 3D support ASAP.

  • I don’t think it will be really that scary if this one is going to be like glasses free 3D similar to Let’s Go Island. Those types of 3D just can’t give the “Pop out” feel. Still, I hope the game to be a fun ride like HotD 4 and Silent Hill Arcade (which is pretty slow for an arcade but still fun).

    • There a 3D ver of LGI!? Oh Well beat the game ady (w/h some helps….) but got the bad ending…… Wht is the good ending may I know?

      HotD 4 S and SHTA is damn hard to find….I only able to locate one SH Arcade while going 4 a trip…. And tht was be4 I am interested in SH…. At least I saw the LP on utube ady.
