It all started in Melborne Australia(A country RICH in its SEGA fandom) back in June 2014, and was virtually ignored during the Shenmue 3 KS  hoopla, but something is happening. As of December 3,2015, Fan Petitions for SEGA to develop and release a Niche NEOGEO style version of Dreamcast(meaning Dreamcast 2 in a niche market form) has suddenly gained momentum. Not only that, but the Fan who started the Shenmue 3 petition 1 year ago is now FULLY endorsing the idea!!!!


Yup. The SAME group behind getting the Shenmue 3 KS is endorsing and supporting the idea of SEGA releasing another Dreamcast, but having it done in a Niche form.




 http://www.shenmue500k.co.uk/shenmue-the-dreamcast-and-the-intertwined-fate/






What it happening? What's going on. Just 2 days ago it finally reached 10,000 after 14 months of activity, but now,its ALREADY hitting 20,000?






Maybe its the inspiration of the Shemnue 3 KS. Maybe its what Satomi said back in July, maybe its the code language and subliminals spoken by SEGA's executives. Maybe its the Sega 2016 promo video(any Sega fan would feel emotion from it) Maybe its the mysterious "Sega Cyclone".


There's a coalition out there. And I look forward to seeing MILLIONS of TRUE SEGA fans letting they're voices be heard by SEGA Holdings,Ltd that THERE is a market for another Dreamcast SKU in NICHE form.

Hell Yeah, I was shocked with the limited release of the NEO GEO console. DC2 deserves this.

Petition signed!

I signed it months ago.

Part of the idea is to re-release the DC in the same form as the NeoGeo handheld, the other is for SEGA to actually make a Dreamcast 2 and market and sell it in the same league on how the NEOGEO was originally sold back in the 90s: In NICHE form.

The extent of the letter being sent to SEGA of America:



And let us not forget that SEGA of America has been downgraded to digital titles and rely on Atlus for PR other services. People are sending that letter seen above to a division of SEGA that has nothing to do with hardware decisions.

How?

Sega can't do ANYTHING hardware related in your eyes?Not EVEN a Neo Geo like handheld or Niche platform?

*Sigh.

Yes, they CAN.

I believe the idea is to ask Sega of America to talk to Japan about the prospects and ideas.


This petition is over a year old. This was WELL before Sega Interactive and Sega Holdings.


Boy, the idea of Sega doing ANYTHING hardware related really brings out the cycnical pessimism in some people.

EternalHope, the problem is you are choosing the most out there nutty approaches to SEGA making new hardware.

A petition which will send a sentence long letter to SEGA of America so that they will pass the word along to SEGA Japan that people want a Limited Edition Dreamcast?

What is the point?

It's not a case of not believing they can. It's a case of not being in a position too.

To inform Sega  of Japan that there's a NICHE market for another home consumer product. The fact that its now being endorsed by the same group behind the Shenmue 3 KS idea speaks volumes.

Also, this was made in 2014 by an Australian SEGA fan. I didn't make this.

Yes they are.

Valve can do it. Ouya can and even SNK, but not Sega?


Why do people look at Sega as this small,worthless company
with no money when they have $12 billion in Cash Flow?
