Two More SEGA Dreamcast Titles Confirmed For XBLA

Richard Walker

Dancing and fish. It's not normally something you'd normally put together, unless you're attending the annual X360A Fillet O' Fish 'N' Funk ball. SEGA, obviously inpsired by this auspicious event, has announced that two more of its Dreamcast library are coming to Xbox Live Arcade in HD.

Space Channel 5: Part 2 and SEGA Bass Fishing are both coming to XBLA in HD, bringing some up, down, left, right, chu dancing madness and arcade fishy pleasures, respectively.

These days, an original copy of Space Channel 5: Part 2 can fetch hundreds of dollars, so if you been sitting on one for the last few years, sell it now before it rapidly depreciates in value! The game stars slinky dancing reporter Ulala, who must face the Rhythm Rogues in a battle that involves dancing with plenty of "chu chu chu" and a bit of shooting with her ray gun. It also looks like the late Michael Jackson has made it into the remake too.

SEGA Bass Fishing on the other hand, was famed for its dedicated fishing rod peripheral, the absence of which could be a real blow when it arrives on XBLA. Still, with eight fishing environments and fourteen lures to choose from, you won't hear us complaining! And honestly, who can say no to fishing? *snigger* "Big One".

Both Space Channel 5: Part 2 and SEGA Bass Fishing are both due for release in early 2011 and should cost 800 Microsoft Points if they're to follow the pricing of Sonic Adventure and the upcoming Crazy Taxi, due November 24th.

Check out the first screens in the galleries: Space Channel 5: Part 2 and SEGA Bass Fishing.

  • where is jet set radio and crazy taxi lol
  • Wow i remember that dancing game loL.. good memories
  • @1 - Crazy Taxi - Nov 24 - 800 MSP.
  • Really hoping for either of the power stone games or jet grind radio.
  • Shenmue FFS
  • Jet Set Radioooooooooooooo
  • Please to bring shenmue mr microsoft. Pretty please
  • Where is Shenmue? Stop pulling this shit on us SEGA! (Jet Set Radio would also be good ^_^.)
  • i bought an xbox not a dreamcast, damn bass fishing is pretty good though, cant beat the original
  • We Want Shenmue!!!! Best fegging Game on the Dreamcast.. AMAZING!!
  • So I assume you'd need a dance mat to fully enjoy Space Channel 5? Anyway, I'm waiting for Jet Set Radio~
  • Oh god I love Space Channel 5.
  • UP-Down-Up-Down-hey-hey-shoot-shoot you just have to love Space Channel . to Sega Bass: also great game :)
  • Up down up down chu chu chu!
  • Interesting...hopefully they announce more down the Sonic Adventure 2, Shenmue and others.
  • JSR! WHERE ART THOU!?!!?? I miss the days of Dreamcast.
  • Come on...these over Skies of Arcadia? SoA better be on the way!
  • Who says there is no fishing controller for Sega Bass fishing, if you're serious about it buy this... or this with another game looks more pro... Also i agree with holding out for JSR!!
  • Love fishing on the dreamcast the rod controller was rather gay though
  • @ all the Shenmue comments... My thoughts exactly! Everytime I see the SEGA logo on this sites news section and the word Dreamcast I get my hopes up, I guess I shouldn't... :( It'd make me and I'd imagine a LOT of other gamers happy if it were released. Come on SEGA, stop teasing us like this!!!!
  • *treats Sega like a dog* Good boy Sega *pets Sega*, now go fetch Sonic Adventure 2 & Power Stone.
  • I dare say MS size limit would be a reason why Shenmue has not been announced.
  • @#20 You mean it had sex with other fishing controllers? That's pretty friggin' bizarre.
  • When will they release Skies of Arcadia and Speed Devils? That's what I want to know.
  • Another Shenmue fan here, I even have the dreamcast reprint project site as my homepage so everytime I go on the internet on my pc I check to see if Shenmue will be coming to XBLA! Would also love the powerstones, toy commander and dynamite cop 2!
  • Since i already have a BC compatible copy of shenmue and JSRF, Power Stone is what I'm really dying to see on arcade; that or the Ultra 64 version of Killer Instinct--screw crazy taxi
  • That's pretty disappointing. Never cared about either of these Dreamcast games, I mean, Sega Bass Fishing? Why? Oh well hopefully they add better games in the future, Jet Set Radio is a must.
  • When will we get Wonderboy and Alex Kidd in Miracle World (or am I the only one willing these?)
  • It's kind of sad that the bass fishing game has better graphics than the fishing games out now for 360.
  • Both of these and Crazy Taxi are day one buys for me. I loved my Dreamcast. We used to stay up all night playing Sega Bass Fishing. Can't wait.
  • Dreamcast games for 10 bucks = awesome.
  • what gay choices...they need to port shenmue 1 and 2 and then make 3 to finish the epic story they started with so much promise phantasy star online wouldn't go amiss either fuckin dancuing and fishing....what next?
  • @33, way to throw around the term gay on the day on "end anti-LGBT bullying" day. Jackass. Plus, Space Channel 5 is awesome.
  • Will be picking up crazy taxi and maybe jet set. Now all we need is shenmue and chu chu rocket.
  • Wtf!? Bass fishing?? WE WANT SHENMUE!
  • I actually really like the bass fishing game.
  • bring back nfl 2k series
  • Space Channel 5 was a good time. But as has been said, BRING US SHENMUE AND JET GRIND RADIO!!! (Or Jet Set Radio, whichever you prefer to call it). Definitely glad to see some Dreamcast goodness being brought to the XBLA tho. Having a blast with Sonic Adventure.
  • Space channel 5 is good by why the hell part 2 Sega Bass fishing is good but only if you had the reel controller, vi a regular pad its pointless.
  • Great to see the love for Shenmue on here. Brings a tear to my fanboy eye... :'}
  • FFFFFUUUUUUU**!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where is Grandia 2, Shenmue(both of them) and Skies of Arcadia?!(((
  • Who the fuck would admit to playing a fishing game? Oh dear.
  • Where's Shenmue? You think that putting him in a racing game was gonna satisfy us Sega?
  • Not so big on SC5, I very well may get this Bass Fishing game. I assume they'll do marine fishing as a dlc pack. (I hope) Power Stone would be amazing and they didn't forget about it since they're on PSP, JetSetRadio would also be awesome. Panzer Dragoon Zwei and Shenmue also.
  • @11 Space Channel 5 is not a dance mat game
  • +1 for Jet Set Radio and Shenmue.
  • Bring Fur Fighters to the XBLA Hands down one of the best Dreamcast games.
  • I'm glas SEGA are doing this, I really enjoyed the games on Dreamcast, moreso than any other console tbh.
  • I wish SEGA would just go die in a fire already. The last good thing their name was tied to was Condemned 2, but they were only the publisher so that hardly even counts.
  • I don't enjoy video games of things I could easily do in real life, ie, fishing.
  • I'm hoping they announce Chu Chu Rocket
  • I bet everyone instantly thought "Two More SEGA Dreamcast Titles Confirmed For XBLA - Shenmue and JSR"
  • That fishing game was fun for it's time.... For it's time..
  • We need to get Metropolis Street Racer in the XBLA ! That would be cool :)
  • SEGA is either very stingy with their releases, or has a very strange view of what the general western community wants to see from their back catalog. I'm definitely biased, and it's not that these games won't be purchased, but where are the fighters (Rival Schools, Power Stone, etc.)? Not to mention the 2 games I've been hearing about for almost a decade...Shenmue and Jet Set
  • WTF bass fishing SEGA.... WTF!! how will money be made on this, In fact I think Im gonna max it just because!!
  • forget these two weak games put the two best games ever made out to the arcade a game were people have been waiting 8 years for give us shenmue and shenmue 2 so we don't have to wait no more then if they get enough downloads make shenmue 3
  • @48 I'm with you on fur fighters thats was a bad ass game! Also Speed Devils and Toy Commander were classics aswell.
  • Meh would settle for unreal tournament but bass fishing liked fishing gmaes on ps1 may get it.
  • This is awsome!!!! KEEP THE DREAMCAST GAMES COMINIG!!! SO many games. SOOO MANY GAMES!!
  • This has nothing to do with Sega but I have been hoping for a sequel to Jet Force Gemini sense Microsoft got a hold of Rare. That would hands down be the greatest game ever. But since that will never happen... and we have seen 64 and Dreamcast ports to XBLA in the past. Playing Jet Force Gemini again on Xbox would be AMAZING! Especially if it had 20 achievements like Perfect Dark :) Just sayin.
  • Sega Bass Fishing? Really? Seriously, give me Shenmue and Jet Grind (Set) Radio and that'll be good. Those asking for Power Stone, you have to realize that's by Capcom.
  • We are talking about Dreamcast games here though so although some of these might already be listed a thousand times over I would love to see the likes of Skies of Arcadia, Shenmue, Grandia 2, and Sonic Adventure 2 (which is probably just a matter of time). On top of that Im not a huge fighting fan but I wouldnt mind Dead or Alive 2 (we already have Soul Calibur) or Vampire Chronicles (again we already have Street Fighter and Marvel vs Capcom 2 so... why not?) Not a huge Power Stone fan. Fur Fighters was a pretty fun game... Idk if its a must for XBLA though. I would love to see MDK 2 though, that game blew me away back in the day. And last but not least Phantasy Star Online wouldnt be bad at all either, though Im not sure how it would work (I still have my Gamecube copy, still though achievements are always fun to get on games youve mastered throughout your younger days.
  • how about zombie revenge mm
  • Where is South Park Rally and Resident Evil CODE Veronica? I know theyre not SEGA's own but they would be soo awesome! also seeing as South Park LGTD was a 360 arcade exclusive it would be good for the previous games to come to 360!
  • If we're on a Dreamcast bent, I would like Shenmue 1 & 2 (I'd take a HD remake over the BC version), JSR, Zombie Revenge, Toy Commander, SA2, SoA, Powerstone 1 & 2 and perhaps Code: Veronica. But as we're on the subject of these two game, I'll just say this; "Awww! Small one!" Good day, ladies and gents.
  • Would like to see some Power Stone or Blue Stinger please. They can do it if they wanted to so just do it!
  • where it jet grind set where is itttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I played SPC5 Part 2. Deleted it from my hard drive after 5-10 minutes, probably the worst game I've ever played. But I know I'll get like a thousand thumbs down seeing as how everyone seems to love that game for some reason.
