House of Dead Scarlet Dawn and Transformers Shadows Rising get financing from Sega Amusements

Finance is coming to the rescue of the gaming sector in many ways. The industry has taken a blow in the last few months, especially when entertainment happens in brick-and-mortar locations.  Individual online gamers have an easier life. If you like to play poker in PA, for example, there are so many offers and bonuses available to you. And playing online is always comfortable and safe.

What about the lovers of arcade-equipped bars and restaurants? Well, someone is thinking of them too. Univest Capital Inc., for example, who has partnered up with Sega Amusements to provide a much-needed boost to operators: the “Buy Now Pay Later” program. If venues want to bring visitors back into their locations, often they need to invest in additional arcade cabinets. The Sega Amusements – Univest Capital deal includes zero percent APR for 36 months in addition to 90 days deferred payments on the purchases of two Sega video games.

According to Paul Williams, CEO at Sega, “This deal gives peace of mind when comes to managing cash flow while helping Operators invest into new attractions that will invite players back into their locations.” Both games are not new releases but well-established classics.

House Of The Dead Scarlet Dawn, the newest installment of the 1996 zombie classic, caught a big fish in 2018: it sold to all the 137 restaurants of the Dave & Buster’s chain. The mega order started to deploy in the fall, to have all the locations up and running in time for Halloween. D&B thought that this installment was the best of the House Of The Dead series so far. They hurried to be the first buyers, though Sega in the meanwhile had launched the game in Japan.

Rumors had it that Forever Entertainment was working on a remake of the games, i.e. a console version. A Twitter post from the official account of the Polish videogame publishers confirmed that on October 3rd, 2019: “Hi Guys! We confirm the signing of the agreement regarding remakes of the games “The House of the Dead” and “The House of the Dead 2″. No platforms or release dates have been confirmed, and unfortunately we can’t say anything more for now. Please keep fingers crossed for us and…” Everything is quiet for now, but hopes are that the remake could see the light of day in the fourth quarter of 2020. In the meanwhile, you can play it in an arcade bar.

Transformers Shadows Rising in the arcade versions still ships with the gorgeous, truck-shaped Optimus Prime cabinet. Sega enthusiastically promotes its features: gorgeous chrome exhausts, big grill and a head of Optimus Prime, the leader of the Autobots, towering in the dominant position. Another bonus is the brand new ‘Hyperenergy Tech’ lever, which can unleash a devastating shockwave to destroy multiple enemies. The lever can also generate a forcefield defending the player from severe enemy attacks. The game, released in the summer of 2018, was the first novelty of the series after Human Alliance in 2013. For the time being, there is no news about PC or console version: this is a game specifically designed for entertainment in its own, specially designed arcade cabinet.
