A new year means another batch of indie Dreamcast games! While Hucast’s Redux: Dark Matters is shipping soon, and WaterMelon’s Pier Solar HD is due in March, NG:DEV.TEAM has been hard at work on their upcoming TATE (vertical) maniac shooter NEO XYX. The team happily tweeted today NEO XYX for the Dreamcast has gone gold, and that the official website for the game is now open! Regular, limited, and collector editions are up for pre-order on their store, with an anticipated release date of next month.
After the jump, a list of features players can expect from the title, as well as a gallery of screens.

….is that a laser that shoots giant green angry tiger heads? AWESOME.
Would a Dreamcast need to be modified in any way in order to play it?
Nope. Great thing about the Dreamcast is that you can pretty much just burn your own games for it. I think the only Dreamcasts that can’t play these games were the final DC revisions, DC version 2.
So long as your Dreamcast wasn’t manufactured in November or December 2000, you should be good.
Hopefully it will be shipping soon and not have all the controversy that is Redux:Dark Matters.
NG:DEV.TEAM have been very good at hitting their release dates. Since they don’t rely on Kickstarter, I believe they have all the funds and are running a tight oiled ship. This is, I believe, their fifth Dreamcast game.
if i HAD a dreamcast i would definitely get this game. looks great but only have a genesis from the sega family of systems. port it to wii-u or better yet 3ds maybe?
Sega and Prope including Sonic Team are able to make next Sega Console(not Sega Zone,not Sega Nu,not Sega Millennium-fake copy of Sega Dreamcast) as successor of Wii U and Sega Dreamcast.
