‘Faster Than Speed’ is the newest SEGA Dreamcast Atomiswave port

Here we go, Dreamcast-Talk user MegaVolt85 has blessed us with yet another (I feel like I’ve typed this way too much) Atomiswave arcade port, this time another obscure title: Faster than Speed, an arcade street racing game by Sammy USA from 2004.

Faster than Speed has ‘trick maneuvers’ and ‘Nitro boost’ to beat your opponents. From SEGA’s description back in the day:

“Enter the exciting street-racing world of Faster Than Speed where the winner rules and the loser walks! Hit the street with the most addictive driving experience of your life! Pick from 8 customized rides. Faster Than Speed will take your players into the exotic, dim-lit, back streets of over 6 tracks challenging the quickest, the fastest, the baddest, and the most stocked racer conquers the asphalt! To take down your challenger, you need to burn the street with a variety of high-speed tricks.”

This is the 6th Atomiswave arcade port we’ve gotten, we also got: Metal Slug 6, King of Fighters XI, Samurai Shodown VI, NeoGeo Battle Coliseum, and Knights of Valour: The Seven Spirits.

NeoGeo Battle Coliseum and Samurai Shodown VI ported to Dreamcast as Atomiswave arcade ports keep coming

We are continuing our updates on SNK Atomiswave ports coming to the SEGA Dreamcast. The user Megavolt85 is the SEGA fan behind these ports where he started with Metal Slug 6, then released King of Fighters XI. Now we got not one, but two new games: NeoGeo Battle Coliseum and Samurai Shodown VI!

These ports just keep coming faster and faster. Don’t be shocked that next time you blink, we will have the whole Atomiswave library released. Not that its a bad thing, of course.

Unreleased ‘Breach’ port for SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive has been unearthed

The site GamingAlexandria has posted some assets from the unreleased SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive port of Breach. This whole project was compiled and preserved by David Ashley.

Thankfully if you wanted to try out the beta port of ‘Breach’ on your original hardware, you can download the rom and assets here. If you didn’t know Breach was the first installment of a trilogy of sci-fi strategy games developed by Omnitrend Software who are mainly known for their 1983 text adventure game ‘Universe’. Lots of people would describe Breach as a early version of X-Com. You can read more about this ports development via GamingAlexandria’s in-depth post. According to our sister site, SEGA Retro, the game was last seen again at Winter CES 1993.


Rumor: Alza leaks console ports of Bayonetta & Vanquish PC remasters


Seems SEGA and Platinum aren’t quite done putting these games out. According to an incidental result on Alza, a UK-based online electronics store, both Vanquish and Bayonetta are set to launch on PS4 and Xbox One later this year. Not only are they getting a second re-release, but they’ll be stuffed into one very jam-packed double feature. The current “expected” release sits at November this year for Europe, with no further details on North American or Asian territory releases, or a release date. Assuming this is a genuine mistake on Alza’s part and these are real, it’s safe to say SEGA will be having some very good stocking stuffers this year.

SEGA News Bits: Bayonetta PC Port Released Reaction

SEGA and Platinum Games have teamed up to reveal that their countdown site was in fact a announcement of their Bayonetta PC port.

On this episode we break down what the Bayonetta PC Port offers, chances of Bayonetta 2 making it to other non-Nintendo platforms and speculate what the future of the Bayonetta franchise holds.

Persona 4 hits the Playstation 3 on April 8th

Last time we talked about Devil Summoner getting a re-release via PS3’s PS2 Classics brand and now people will be able to download Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 as well.

The game is set to come out on April 8th and cost a mere $9.99 through PSN  in North and South America. This will allow SEGA gamers who haven’t experinced the classic Atlus game to dive right in.

I suggest all gamers give this game a go, it has some memorable characters, writing and story.

Fantasy Zone 3DS port gets screens and Opa-Opa’s brother confirmed as playable!


SEGA has announced a ton of ‘3D’ ports of classic games, we have had many of the classics already released and now there is one more to add to your list: Fantasy Zone!

In a strange turn of events it seems that the title of the original classic has been extended for the re-release, now titled Fantasy Zone: Opa-Opa Bros in Japan. Why the extended title? Well, it seems that Opa-Opa’s brother “Upaupa” will be playable. According to the official site, all you will have to do is complete the original game to unlock ‘Upaupa mode’. He will have multiple weapons that can be changed on the fly with the second 3DS screen.  The game is set to come out in Japan on March 19th for 762 yen.

So what else is new? Wanna see the screens? Hit the jump!

Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing finally debuts on Android

Seems like SEGA took their sweet time porting over Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing to Android, especially when you consider the fact that the game came out two years ago. But hey, it’s here now and you can own it for $1.99! This is port of the DS version, cleaned up for higher resolution phones.

The game just came out and reviews aren’t that positive. Out of three reviews, two of them have been one stars and the other was three. Hopefully SEGA addresses issues of lag and other complaints.

Sonic 1 heading to 3DS…in 3-D!


Looks like we’ll be getting a heavy dose of the original Sonic 1 this year.

Thanks to our sister site Sonic Retro, we have learned that Sega of Japan have announced Sonic 1 as the third Sega game (along with Space Harrier and Super Hang-On to get the 3-D treatment. It looks like this will not be the same as the version coming from Christian Whitehead for the iOS. While it will have full 3-D effects, it will still looks to be in 4:3 mode. Besides 3-D other new features include..

  • Switch between Japan/Western version with some minor differences.
  • Spin Dash.
  • New animations in backgrounds like rippling effects in water.
  • CRT mode to give it that “classic” look.
  • Full controller customization. Set it to press A to jump or B to jump, or X to Jump or Y to well you know where I’m going here.
  • Sound settings for PSG and FM.

While the game will be coming to Japan on the 15th, but given how long it’s taking Space Harrier and Super Hang-On to come over here, it may be awhile before we see it stateside.

Tails Adventure and Crystal Warriors rated by the Australian Rating Board


Seems that Tails Adventure and Crystal Warriors could be heading to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console shop soon over in Australia. The Australian Rating Board has recently put a rating on both Game Gear titles, the rating states that SEGA Europe is the publisher.

It is awesome to see more Game Gear games are making it on the 3DS, since it was one of my favorite handhelds growing up.

Ikaruga gets ported to Android devices, dodge bullets on the go

Ikaruga is probably one of my favorite shoot ’em ups during the Dreamcast era, created originally for the SEGA NAOMI board. This little bugger has seen its fair share of ports, including the Gamecube, Xbox 360 and now Android powered devices. How much are they charging for this masterpiece? $9.

So head over to the Play Store and pluck down some money and if you haven’t played it, do so please.

Jet Set Radio gets first gameplay trailer

The boys and girls over at Game Radar got an exclusive Jet Set Radio HD trailer, sadly the trailer isn’t running in high defenintion. Game Radar is showing giving this exclusive video the 2008 era YouTube quality love.

For what it seems, looks like the Jet Set Radio we all know and love. Doesn’t answer the questions we really want to know like if they are going to use the second joystick on controllers to move the camera or if they are going to be taking off tracks from the soundtrack.
