Let’s Catch Caught Traveling Overseas… With Virtual On?

By Spencer . February 24, 2009 . 8:47am

letsc We know Sega is bringing Let’s Tap here this summer, but what about Prope’s WiiWare game Let’s Catch? Nothing official for North America yet. but Let’s Catch was rated by the OFLC in Australia. Chances seem pretty good that we will see an English version and toss baseballs with aliens here too. Can’t say I’m shocked by this since Let’s Catch always seemed like the kind of game Sega would release internationally.

 

Along with the Let’s Catch rating the OFLC rated Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram, another Sega game from their Dreamcast days. Now this is interesting since Sega also re-trademarked the title’s name in North America late last year. While this may seem like old news for us Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram never got a proper PAL release. Sega wouldn’t have the game rated unless they had plans to publish Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram on some current console. Perhaps, we’re going to see a Virtual On remake?

    VOOT is exciting as a XBLA/ PSN downloadable, but it’s sort of tempered by a lack of twin sticks. If it happens, hopefully they include multiple control options… after how terrible Marz was, dual analog really just isn’t a good substitute, I’d honestly rather have the DC pad configurarion (or even better Saturn VO1 pad config).

    VIRTUAL ON! After making love to Senko no Ronde and Armored Core the past months this is awesome news for me as a pal gamer. Let’s hope.

    Famitsu has confirmed that VOOT is for XBLA, it’s coming out in Japan in April. :)

    Insert Credit reports that the VOOT trademark is for the new line of model kits from Kotobukiya.

      Yeah, but that isn’t logical since the models mentioned are being made and sold in Japan. Even though Kotobukiya has a US office Sega wouldn’t need to re-trademark Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram just for some kits. Trademarks are expensive and if they have the trademark in Japan their base is covered. It’s similar to like some video game titles, names of actual games being sold here, that don’t have trademarked names domestically, but have an international trademark registered in Japan. Sega re-registered a bunch of other trademarks too.

      Also, the OFLC rating and Famitsu confirmed that “VOOT” is indeed being remade for Xbox Live Arcade so it’s pretty clear why Sega USA re-registered the trademark.
