Forums - Gaming Discussion - Sega Dreamcast games Developers bringing their games to the 3DS and maybe also Wii U.

  • 1

Did you guys know the Dreamcast is still around? Yup, it is. Even though Sega’s left it for dead, 16 years after it’s release developers still continue to make games for it. Just this year developers Hucast and KonTechs Ltd. released their Kickstarter funded bullet-hell space shooter Redux: Dark Matters onto the old system. Which itself was a remake of the 2009 Dreamcast title DUX.

What you might find more interesting though is that one of the developers, René Hellwig, was recently quoted as saying:

We have plans for Wii U and 3DS. We think Redux would look amazing with stereoscopic 3D graphics! Since we developed the game on PC with HD graphics it will be easy for us to port the game to Nintendo consoles. Nintendo is more straightforward with Indie devs, and we believe that in the coming years Nintendo consoles will be a great place to publish Indie games.

Which suggests that Dark Matters may make it’s way to a Nintendo console sometime soon. Of course, if you’re interested in the game but don’t want to wait for an eventual eShop release you can order it here from the developers. Of course you’ll need to have a Dreamcast to play it on. The game’s gotten rave reviews, so if you get the chance there’s no reason not to try it out!

So what do you all think of this? Would you be interested in playing a game like Redux: Dark Matters on the Wii U or 3DS? Let us know in the comments!

Well its only 1 Dreamcast game, title a bit misleading.

It's 100% of current Dreamcast game developers though.

Doesn't make the title any less misleading.

Nope.

A lot of older consoles actually still enjoy an active indie development scene. New Atari 2600 games are still being released each year, for example.



There is also Dreamcast emulators for Windows, OSX, iPhone/Pad, Android.

A WebGL based emulator would probably work in any modern browser, including 360/PS3/XBone/PS4.

That wasn't a rumor.

That was Nintendo saying they will bring a lot of Dreamcast IPs back, but on the Wii U.

They were using Seaman as an example, so we're not sure if there will be a Seaman game on the Wii U.

 

Anyways, this game mentioned in the OP is only promised to the 3DS so far.
