Game appearance

Sega Superstars Tennis

Eggman Curein Mansion

Curien Mansion tennis court.

Curien Mansion appears as a tennis court in Sega Superstars Tennis. The court is set up outside the mansion with creatures watching the game from the sidelines. Overall, the court has a very dark and foggy design to it. The tennis ball appears red on this court, and the net is made up of a rickety metal fence with gargoyles on the sides holding it up.

One of the minigames played on this court involves hitting tennis balls at a horde of zombies and knocking enough zombies down before the timer ends.

Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

In Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, Curien Mansion has three race tracks located around it. The first is set around the grounds of the Curien Mansion, such as the cathedral, cemetery, woods and cliffside roads, the second leads through the underground of the mansion, and the last leads through the mansion and around the courtyard (as well as the roof of the mansion).

The Graveyard Gig.

In Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, the track takes place in and around Curien Mansion. Director Steve Lycett commented that the track takes place during a giant house party (Zobio's and Zobiko's wedding). During the first lap, Zobio can be seen bouncing on an inflatable castle. Zobio and Zobiko are seen at the end of the last lap on the right. Zobiko is also in a wedding dress. Many of the bosses from previous The House of the Dead games appear, including Death in a evening suit, a cartoon version of The Lovers, Hangedman and Tower.


  • A House of the Dead game was in Sega Superstars, though the mansion itself was not shown.
  • Due to the Sega Superstar games keeping an E10+ rating, blood and violence was removed from these stages, regardless of the original games' mature contents. While Zombies have been kept, they are more cartoony in appearance.
    • The location is also not referred to by its franchise's name because House of the Dead is banned in Germany.
  • Curien Mansion is the signature stage for Zobio & Zobiko, the protagonists from The House of the Dead EX, a casual spin-off game which tones down the violence and replaces the rail-shooting gameplay with an assortment of mini-games.
