Dreamcast to be Reborn on XBLA and PSN

Recommended Posts

Sega's Dreamcast system, a console that spearheaded the online gaming movement and one with a loyal fan base to this day is soon to enjoy new breath in its lungs.

Sega today announced plans to bring Dreamcast titles to Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network beginning this fall with Sonic Adventure and later with Crazy Taxi. Both titles will remain true to their '90s versions in the gameplay department, but Sega has updated each with new visuals and surround sound, online leaderboards, trophies, and achievements.

Sonic Adventure will arrive first, landing sometime this fall in Europe and North America, to coincide with the Dreamcast's 11th birthday. Additionally, Sega said these two titles are the "first two classics," implying additional titles will follow.

This announcement is not exactly a total surprise, as the Electronic Software Ratings Board outed Sonic Adventure earlier this week. The ESRB listing provided ratings classification for both Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure DX, though Sega's announcement this morning announced only the former.

For more on both games, check out GameSpot's Sonic Adventure review and GameSpot's Crazy Taxi review.

Sega will be displaying both updated titles at its booth at the Electronic Entertainment Expo next week. GameSpot will be at the show, reporting from the floor. Check out GameSpot's complete coverage of E3 2010 to stay current.

Chu Chu Rocket??? That was the first console game I ever played online. Fun stuff.

Skies of Arcadia would be cool too... I really miss traditional RPGs (although Skies was one of the first to introduce the 'corridor' exploring). All we have now are shooters with RPG elements that get labeled RPG.

Jet Set Radio would also be very awesome... that game was unique and fun to play.

There were a lot of great Dreamcast games. It's a shame the system completely died and Sega had to become simply a software company. Some of the memory card mini games were cool too.
