The Dreamcast isn’t useless. The Dreamcast won’t ever die.
Flashback, a recreation initially launched in 1992, which a lot of you’ll know as one of many iconic side-scrolling journey video games of the Amiga (and ultimately,
the Sega Mega Drive) period, is getting a re-release. Here’s the factor, although – it’s getting a re-release on the Dreamcast.
Before you ask, I’m not speaking concerning the barely dodgy remake of the sport that got here out on Xbox 360 some years in the past, I’m truly speaking concerning the very unique model of the sport. Blurry, pixelated graphics and all.
After the preliminary confusion and shock that, sure, there are locations on the market that apparently nonetheless produce recreation releases for the Sega Dreamcast, GD-Rom discs and all, it’s particularly intriguing that Flashback was one of many video games singled out for such a launch. I’m not complaining, I liked Flashback once I was youthful, even when I’m unsure I ever truly completed it, nevertheless it looks like a considerably weird selection.
The newly remastered Dreamcast model is constructed to accomodate 16:9 shows and options set of filters and scales, all of that are customisable within the choices menu. None of this solutions the query of ‘why this and why now?’ however I assume we will simply take pleasure in the truth that life nonetheless comes with surprises once in a while. You can see footage of the Dreamcast model of Flashback within the under video.
This new launch of the sport is due for launch subsequent month and is at present accessible for pre-order solely at Play-Asia, the place a completely boxed, region-free copy will value you £31.75 / $39.99.
Now who do I’ve to problem to get Jungle Strike ported to Switch?
