Tetsuya Kawauchi’s last known work is being a sound coordinator for Blood Will Tell: Tezuka Osamu’s Dororo. The characters redesigns and story were handled by RED ENTERTAINMENT, who had worked with SEGA WOW’s predecessor OVERWORKS on the Sakura Wars series.

The Japanese version of The Typing of the Dead had 3 sound designers, but the only one credited in the English version is Tetsuya Kawauchi. Maybe he worked on unique sound for the English version?

In-between working on The House of the Dead 2 and Zombie Revenge, Tetsuya Kawauchi worked on at least one Print Club machine. These ATLUS/SEGA machines could take your photos and print them, and very recently made a comeback!

Unlike the first game, The House of the Dead 2 saw an album release. While Haruyoshi Tomita’s stage themes use the same name as the stages themselves, Tetsuya Kawauchi’s have unique names, like how Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing had unique names for HOTD stage music.

SEGA Water Ski is sort of like a waterskiing version of TOP SKATER, down to similar cabinets from designer Keisuke Tsukahara (not the composer). TOP SKATER’s sound supervisor Saeko Segawa was also a voice actor in SEGA Water Ski.

With the proposed Reflection System, The House of the Dead could have been the first gun game where you would need to shoot enemies on 2 screens. This concept was eventually used for The House of the Dead 4 Special.

The House of the Dead has a lot of unused content, like 2 unused characters (Mr. Happy and PLAY BOY) and even 2 unused music tracks. In the sound test, the music for the third chapter (Truth) is in-between them.

The House of the Dead has a lot of branching routes in the stages triggered by certain actions. There’s fewer of them in each subsequent stage, with the first chapter “Tragedy” having about 6 triggers.

MANX TT SuperBike was released several months after the TT event took place in June. Tetsuya Mizuguchi and his team were in the Isle of Mann at the time thanks to their Department of Tourism and Leisure, taking 4000+ reference photos.

Realism was a big draw in 90’s games, but Tetsuya Kawauchi’s first known soundtrack Baku Baku Animal asks the question: Why do blocks in falling games disappear for no reason? Isn’t it more realistic if they vanish because an animal ate them?

's HOTD Month begins with talks of related @SEGA@twitter.com games tied to sound designer Tetsuya Kawauchi! In this episode, hear select music from HOTD1 plus Baku Baku Animal, MANX TT, SEGA Water Ski, and Virtua Golf!
