Space Channel 5 for PS2, Sega Europe says.
Sega of Europe recently released an official statement that confirmed the popular music-rhythm title Space Channel 5 for Sony's PlayStation 2. In hopes of offsetting Dreamcast failures in the Japanese market, Sega announced further cross-development plans as well: the storied company has plans to release Sonic the Hedgehog Advance for the Game Boy Advance. Moreover, Sega of Europe claims that 30 games will be released for competing consoles by Spring of 2002. While specifics concerning Sega's vaunted software being distributed to the Xbox and Gamecube were not available, Sega did confirm that it has not ruled out the possibility of developing games for those platforms.
"Sega has always been an industry innovator," commented Kazutoshi Miyake, COO of Sega of Europe. "Our new strategy will allow us to put our software content across a variety of platforms helping Sega stay at the forefront of gaming."
The company report confirmed Sega's plan to continue to support the Sega Dreamcast with over 100 games to grace the platform by the end of the year.
