Dreams Can Come True – SEGA Classics To Be Re-released
SEGA has announced the first two entries in what it promises will be a series of downloadable re-releases of classic Dreamcast games. Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi will be the first two titles to get the treatment, as they will be released over the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade in celebration of the 11th anniversary of the Dreamcast.
The titles will include all of their original gameplay elements, along with enhancements such as: higher resolution visuals, surround sound, online leader boards and, of course, both achievement and trophy integration.
“The Dreamcast is fondly remembered by a large community of dedicated fans as a console that was ahead of its time in terms of graphics, quality and online gaming” states Haruki Satomi, VP of Digital Business at SEGA. “There are few things that are more requested from us than making Dreamcast classics available for download in today’s digital market place. We’re very excited to begin offering gamers our beloved Dreamcast titles again on the current console systems.”
Sonic Adventure is due to hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 online this autumn.
