Sega Serves Up Some Fan Service with Two New Announced Titles

Since my last post was about the upcoming House of the Dead-inspired DS action game ‘Touch the Dead’, I figured that this would be a rather appropriate time to write about another similar title. Titled ‘The Typing of the Dead’, the game saw release on both the ill-fated Dreamcast and on PC (the PC version seems a bit more obscure, however, as I’ve yet to actually see a physical copy of it…). Set in the House of the Dead II universe, instead of gunning down hordes of zombies with a light gun you typed out fraises via a keyboard to kill the undead. Although this highly unique title failed to create much of a buzz when it was originally released seven years ago (time really flies, eh?), it is now considered something of a cult-classic, enough so for Sega to justify another entry in the series.

Yup, that’s right – a sequel to the Sega cult-classic is in the works and planned for a PC-exclusive release. Although this quirky title hasn’t been confirmed for release outside of Japan yet, I’m sure it’ll make its way around the world shortly after it hits the Land of the Rising Sun. And even though the popular House of the Dead Series has seen four entries thus far, the Typing of the Dead 2’s environments, characters and story will be based on the third game originally released in 2002 (maybe signifying a possible third entry to be based on the House of the Dead 4? That seems like a long shot right now though…).

Also confirmed by Sega is a wacky new golf title. Titled Sega Splash! Golf, think Hot Shots Golf but with a zany Sega twist. Let’s just hope the game play can match Sony’s sublime arcade-style golf series…

I have this game and two keyboards for my Dreamcast and a sublime game it is too! However, whilst a 'versus' game can be played against friends on the DC, would this be possible on a PC based game? Great news anyhow! Well done Mr. Ross!
