Space Channel 5 Sequel, Sega Bass Fishing Set For PSN/XBLA
We're still waiting to hear about the big boys but in the meantime, here are two more Dreamcast classics for the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
Sega has announced that "digitally remastered" versions of Space Channel 5 Part 2 and Sega Bass Fishing will be coming to the PSN and XBLA. The first two in the DC revival project were Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi and we're still hoping for games like Shenmue, Skies of Arcadia and - dare we hope? - Soul Calibur. "The release of these games marks Sega’s ongoing effort to bring its best-sellers from the Dreamcast era to the latest consoles," said Sega vice president of digital business, Haruki Satomi. The sequel to Space Channel 5 released in 2002 but was only available in Japan, although it did come to Europe on the PS2 in 2003. Space Channel 5 was a relatively unique and entertaining experience and Sega Bass Fishing was widely considered to be a solid rod 'n reel game. The question is, are you still interested in playing, or do you think modern-day gamers would want to try such throwbacks...?
Maybe it'll require some of the more popular Dreamcast games before some PSN/XBLA subscribers decide to take a trip back in time.
