Segata Sanshiro Shinken Yuugi



Quote
As a marketing vehicle, Shinken Yūgi faithfully captures the Segata Sanshiro spirit.
But as a game, its uninspired ideas of what constitutes amusement leave a lot to be desired.
Still, let it be said that after playing through the game, it’s easy to understand what makes Sanshiro such an appealing character.

Ecco the Dolphin creator wants to port
Mr. Bones and Three Dirty Dwarves Nintendo Switch




Quote
“One of the OCD characteristics of my personality is I never give up!
When I was trying to convince Sega about Ecco the Dolphin it took me years to get them to bite.
There are some challenges I need to overcome but eventually, there will be a new Ecco!
Also, I am trying to find a way to port our Saturn game, Three Dirty Dwarves, to the Switch.
I think that’s an excellent game for the platform."

Interview: Jacob Andersen (Designer: Amok & Scorcher)



Quote
Sega-16: Amok was Lemon’s first game for the Saturn. Reportedly, it started out as a 32X game and was shifted to Saturn when Sega discontinued the add-on. Is this true? If so, how far along was the game on the 32X?
Jacob Andersen: As I remember, it was more a question of the Saturn becoming a valid option, so we decided to switch. I don’t remember it being very far, so it wasn’t a big deal.
At the time, there was no PlayStation in sight so I guess everybody thought that this was the future platform.
We did eventually start converting the game to the PlayStation along with the PC, but the project fell apart at Scavenger’s ultimate demise.
