After years of hyped waiting and a couple of other shooters, you brand new Dreamcast game (mind, not officially licensed by SEGA) is out! Redux: Dark Matters is the latest shooter game released by Hucast Games for the long-dead SEGA console.
You’re probably wondering what’s wrong with the title of this article. Yes, we know that we’re talking about a 10 years old game, also quite an awful game to be honest. But the interesting fact is that ToeJam & Earl 3 has never been released for the console it was planned for, the Dreamcast, getting just a minor release on the original Xbox.
After the incredibly cool series of laptop themed on all the SEGA’s consoles presented few months ago, now the Japanese ex-hardware-but-still-software house launches a new “project” called Segakawaii (you know, kawaii in Japanese means “cute”).
Basically Segakaii is a series of accessories themed on SEGA goods, like consoles and pads. For example on April 25 will be available (obviously only in Japan) the first item…a giant Dreamcast pad backpack! Later on will be released other stuff, including a very cool Dreamcast t-shirt!
We all want a new SEGA console, maybe a Dreamcast 2, but you know, this is never gonna happen.
Instead of realize our dreams (and most likely bankrupt for real this time), SEGA decided to collaborate with Enterbrain, a Japanese PC retailer, to create a new laptop series. These PCs, called SEGA NOTE PC, will feature a choice of four lid finishes: SEGA blue, SEGA Mega Drive, SEGA Saturn and SEGA Dreamcast; and they all look pretty awesome.
These SEGA NOTE PCs will be available in four different models, from entry-level to top-level, and the most powerful (and expensive) will feature all the four retro-covers. Here are the specs and prices.
Now the bad news (beside the not-so-cheap price range from ¥99,750/£682/€793/$1068 to ¥194,250/£1329/€1546/$2080). These PCs will be produced only if a certain number (yup, we know it’s a little vague) of preorder is reached. Uh, did we mention that an European/Northamerican release is never ever gonna happen?
