Reporter/dancer Ulala is getting digitally remastered for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Sega is dusting off Space Channel 5 Part 2 and re-releasing it as a digital Dreamcast download. Space Channel 5 Part 2 has a new group of enemies to "chu", the Rhythm Rouges who kidnapped President Peace. Ulala gets to rescue Space Michael in the sequel too.

 

Sega Bass Fishing is also coming to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live sans any neat-o fishing controller.

 

Each game will cost 800 Microsoft Points ($10) on Xbox Live Arcade or $9.99 on PlayStation Network. Sega plans to release both titles in early 2011.

    I’ll wait until, hopefully, Sega releases a Dreamcast collection vol.1 with all their HD Dreamcast ports to a single disc.

    If Sega releases Phantasy Star Online with no monthly fee then I will be picking that up. Hopefully they include Episode 2 and Blue Burst even though they weren’t on the Dreamcast.

      I think they’re making PSO2 so they don’t have to rerelease PSO.

      You don’t know what the game is?

      Hum… Well, I own the PS2 special edition (it’s basically Space Channel 5 episode 1 and 2 packaged together on individual DVDs).

      It’s basically a glorified Simon Says game that requires you holding a beat. It’s more fun then I make it sound though. Both game contains, as a cameo in the first episode and as an actual character of importance in the second episode. SPPAAAAACE MICHAEL! Voiced by Michael Jackson himself. (Supposedly, he heard of the project and at the last minute went to the game studio and went “I want to be in it!” And tada, we got space michael.)

      The first episode was okay, music felt a bit dull after a while since they kept rehashing/remaking/remixing the same tune through all the stages. Nevertheless it was an entertaining experience overall. The second episode though is highly superior in every single facet.

      Controls feels better, more forgiving at times, there are secret button presses for extra points, the game mixes up the scoring system to truly seperate the regular moments to boss battles, graphics took a great leap upward, music actually had a wonderful variety with one highly memorable moment (when you rescue Space Michael. Trust me, it’s one of the highlights of the game), challenge mode and etc.

      Episode 2 is worth every penny they’ll ask for it.

        Wow you make the second game sounds like the next best thing since slice bread/buttered toast. Now I am intrigued and you said its forgiving so that means it isnt way too hard. Were the songs vocal themes (voice acting in the game?)

    Where is my JSR, dammit?

      I heard so much about that game before, there is so much hype around it that Im dying to be able to play it.

    Wow!, well done Sega, maybe you are saving the best for last, Shenmue? I hope that game gets the widescreen/hi-res treatment too!

    I’m looking forward to Jet Set Radio! But I’m guessing maybe JSF will have same copyright issues with some music tracks though? (same as Crazy Taxi)…

    Space Channel 5′s Ulala is hot, I got a thing for chicks with pink hair!

    I want even more Dreamcast games on my PS3.

    These are not the Dreamcast titles I was hoping for.

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      What were you hoping for? Sonic Adventure 2?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1472407455 Charles Lupula

        Ew. Sonic Adventure 2 was awful.

        Skies of Arcadia (above all else, this is my number one), Shenmue, Jet Grind Radio, House of the Dead 2 (hey, maybe with Move support for the PS3 version), D2, Ecco the Dolphin, Fighting Vipers 2 (always loved part 1 on the Saturn. Was disappointed this was never localized), Maken X, Time Stalkers. Hell, even Zombie Revenge.

        I bought the Dreamcast at the midnight launch September 9th, 1999 and I’m excited to be able to play these games again. Neither of these two, however, do I have ANY interest in, whatsoever.

        • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

          Ugh Skies of Arcadia (Legends) was one of my most hunted for Gamecube games that I wanted to find!!!! I got the gamecube so late in the game that there werent even used copies of the games around X_x. So a rerelease on the powerful consoles would be most welcome!

            Never played the Gamecube version, as I never owned one, but if Sega do things like they did with Sonic Adventure, they’ll probably release the Dreamcast verison with the Gamecube additions as an extra $5 add-on. Don’t have a problem with that. I just hope if they do that, the music is closer to the Dreamcast than the Gamecube, as the music took a very noticeable hit in the port, apparently.

      Jet Grind(Set) Radio? I’m waiting for that one.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/SplashdownTiger STiger

    But what about part 1?! Ah well… I have Special Edition on PS2.

    Ooh la la!
    Er, I mean Ulala!

    Judging from the second screenshot, this news makes Ulala very “happy”.
