House of the Dead-Scarlet Dawn-THE ATTRACTION (ハウス・オブ・ザ・デッド ～スカーレット・ドーン～ THE ATTRACTION Hausu Obu za deddo 〜 sukāretto dōn 〜 THE ATTRACTION ) is an upcoming 2020 rail shooting game produced and released by Sega. It is a spin-off to House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn.
On January 22nd, 2020, Joypolis announced on Twitter that their House of the Dead 4: Special cabinet would be closing on February 2nd. Its replacement, House of the Dead-Scarlet Dawn-THE ATTRACTION, was revealed just over two weeks later with a release date of March 19, 2020. The release has been pushed back to the following day due to the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic, with Tokyo Joyopolis originally set to open back up March 31st. Its re-opening has since been delayed to an unknown date.
THE ATTRACTION is a theater-type ride with seat vibration, air effects, a surround sound system, and "ultra-large" LED displays. Up to 12 players may simultaneously compete for score, shooting creatures and ultimately "a huge boss". The experience is approximately 10 minutes long.
As of now, preliminary photos of THE ATTRACTION have been released. The in-game screenshot depicts creatures in what appears to be an area of the first level in Scarlet Dawn. There are also four different-colored flames, which represent gunfire from the multiple players.
It is currently unknown if THE ATTRACTION will add any exclusive story elements in the matter of 4:Special.
