The Rest of the Dreamcast Collection Finally Announced for PSN and XBLA!

Took them long enough, but SEGA has finally set a release date for the XBLA and PSN versions of Space Channel 5 Part 2 and SEGA Bass Fishing. Via the SEGA Blog, we now know that both titles will be released digitally on October 4th for PSN and October 5th for XBLA. Both titles, as well as Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi, have been available since February via the XBOX 360 disc release of The Dreamcast Collection. I reviewed it way back in March, rating it a B-. SEGA Bass Fishing is a fun and faithful port, but without the fishing controller it isn’t a “must play” game. Space Channel 5 Part 2, however, is an A+ release in my opinion. It’s a perfect port, widescreen support is very well implemented, and the game is a fantastic sequel brimming with catchy tunes and funky dancing. If you pick up one Dreamcast Collection game, make it Space Channel 5 Part 2.

By the way, wouldn’t the week of September 9th have made for a better release date?

    Great news, but I’d love to know if something is coming after this. Hopefully SEGA has been using this time to make better ports, and not just giving up on it.

    Too late, I ordered the DC Collection for under $10 off of Amazon a few days ago.. Free shipping.

    It’s about time. I’ve had the Dreamcast Collection since it came out. Got it real cheap. Space Channel 5 part 2 alone is worth the price of the disc. Now you can get it alone. I look forward to comparing my SC5p2 scores with you guys.

    Now for bigger name SEGA published Dreamcast games. We need some Skies of Arcadia and Shenmue.
