Trivia / House of the Dead

The games

  • Marth Debuted in Smash Bros.: Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing is the U.S debut of Zobio and Zobiko, as House of the Dead EX was only released in Japan. However, All-Stars Racing never got a Japanese release.
  • Name's the Same: James Taylor and his partner Gary Stewart just happen to share the names of two well-known singer/songwriters from the 1970's. It's unknown whether this was a deliberate Shout-Out or a mere coincidence.
  • No Export for You: Typing of the Dead 2 and House of the Dead EX was never released outside of Japan.
  • What Could Have Been: The Sega Dreamcast port of House of the Dead 2 was originally supposed to include the original HotD with improved graphics as an Embedded Precursor, but it was never completed due to time constraints. An especially tragic example, because the only home versions of the game that ever did see release were two severely downgraded ports for the PC and Sega Saturn.
