That’s right, two more of your favorite titles will be digitally remastered for the XBLA. Want to know which ones? I’ll let you know, after the jump!
The two mega-hits are… Space Channel 5 part 2, and Sega Bass Fishing. Not what first comes to mind when I think of the Dreamcast super-hits, but it’s a start. Haruki Satomi VP of Digital Business at Sega has this to say:
“We want to enable a new generation of players to experience some of the most celebrated titles our video game history has to offer, while at the same time appealing to our enthusiastic and much appreciated community of fans.”
Space Channel 5 Part 2 is a rhythm action dancing game, notable for it’s cameo of the late Michael Jackson. No word on whether his cameo will return in the digital remaster.
Sega Bass Fishing is a very different game however, it is a 3D sport fishing game popular for it’s use of a fishing rod peripheral that worked similarly to the Nintendo Wii-remote, and was usable in a few other games to comical effect. This remake makes me question how fun the game will be without the peripheral however.
This news comes after the announcement of Crazy Taxi and the release of Sonic Adventure. Let us know in the comments which Dreamcast game you are hoping comes out next, I’m hoping for Shenmue and Power Stone!
