Actually, the last entry in the series, House of the Dead: Overkill, debuted on the Wii in 2009 - ~nine years ago. It’s far from my favorite, as the faux-grindhouse setting and expletive-ridden dialog are extremely heavy-handed and difficult to stomach. It also made it to PlayStation 3 in 2012.

Perhaps Arcade Heroes meant that it has been 12 years since an arcade entry (House of the Dead 4 Special).
