SEGA might re-release Saturn games

[Fuck yeah, playing Sonic Adventure with no widescreen]

Yosuke Okunari, who is producing the SEGA Dreamcast re-releases and produced the Sega Ages 2500 series, has an interview with Impress Watch. In the interview, they asked him about the SEGA Saturn, you know, the only major SEGA console not to get digital re-releases?

“What we announced this time is a project where we will have consecutive releases of titles that were debuted on Dreamcast. Separate from this, we’re of course thinking about ports of Saturn games. It’s the same as how Sega Ages and Virtual Console were separate existences. It’s not that we have no intention of porting Saturn titles, so please share your requests.” – Yosuke Okunari

Hum, we can start off the list by saying NiGHTS. You know, that campaign that was launched by NiGHTS fans? But I will be greedy and demand Panzer Dragoon Saga. Go me! He also says that the second batch of Dreamcast titles have already been chosen.

For those of you wondering what team is porting the Dreamcast over, that they can’t even add widescreen to Sonic Adventure. Well, its SEGA Shanghai, the team that did the PS2 port of NiGHTS into Dreams and Dynamite Dekka. He also confirms that the games are not running via emulation. He said both Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi will run at 60fps. That is nice.

    YES OH YES PLEASE. I want Saturn ports more than Dreamcast ports right now. Saturn has reached a vintage age now, so why not milk the nostalgia fans and get some new ones with some simple ports of flagship games like Shining Force III, NiGHTS, Panzer Dragoon RPG.

    Burning Rangers, dammit!

  3. CosmicCastaway says:

    Shining Force III would be the big one for me. I've wanted to play it for such a long time.

  4. Emmett The Crab says:

    Dragon Force, the whole Panzer Dragoon trilogy, Guardian Heroes, Virtual On, Go Saturn!

  5. I'd be all for rereleases of the PS2 ports of NiGHTS into Dreams and Dynamite Dekka. I've always wanted to import them, but an too lazy to figure out PS2 modding.

  6. SufferLikeGDid says:

    Virtua Cop 1 & 2, Radiant Silvergun, Panzer Dragoon, and NiGHTS into Dreams please.

  7. SufferLikeGDid says:

    Oh yeah! And don't forget Fighting Vipers.

    There are tons and tons of Saturn games I would love on the service, but I really have to wonder… Is it THAT hard to put the PlayStation 2 version of NiGHTS on the XBLA with online leaderboards and nice achievements? Seriously…
