13 Sega Classics We Want On XBLA/PSN

NowGamer: With more Sega classics on the way, we look at 13 other gems from Sega's past that would be a perfect fit for Xbox Live Arcade and PSN. (Arcade, ChuChu Rocket!, GameCube, PS2, PS3, Samba de Amigo, Sega, Shenmue II, Skies of Arcadia, ToeJam & Earl, Virtua Cop, Xbox 360)

I would buy any console, three times to finish, Shining Force III in English!

I didn't know it was meant to be a trilogy when I first completed it, just thought it was a rubbish ending. When I found out, well I'm still annoyed I never got to see the end to the story.

Reading translated scripts about where all the forces join together to fight off the vandals just isn't the same as playing through it.

lets go back
even further into the Sega archives. why there isnt a new version of Hang on is really strange. I also like some of their other arcade titles like thunder blade, galaxy force and space harrier.

there has been an update to space harrier called planet harriers and was rumored to have been in development for the DC before that plug was pulled.

Odd that sega hasnt even done a simple port of the virtua cop series for the wii. That seems like a perfect fit. they did put la machine guns and gunblade ny on wii as a double pack. yeah the games were cheesy but still, it was good to have them.

@jallen, yeah it is such a shame the shining series didnt continue on in the US after III. The others were even more intricate in the story (if you could follow in JP).

Oh well, at least they did bring out afterburner climax which is a nice upgrade to the original. sad they lost their license to Ferrari otherwise we would have a newer outrun game by now. At least...i think that is what happened.

Burning rangers and golden axe: the duel would be nice.

The complete trilogy of Shining Force III would be brilliant. I knew that it wasn't complete when it came over, but I still got it anyways. Fantastic way to spend 40 hours of one's life, it's a great game.

Powerstone 1 & 2, with added online multiplayer and Shenmue 2!...although Powerstone 3 and Shenmue 3 would be much more epic -_-

Skies of Arcadia is a great RPG. It was lighthearted and fun, while still having a deep story. I still have the original, but would be nice to see it come out for PSN/Live.

We already have a superb, nearly arcade perfect port of Daytona USA on XBLA/PSN. Plus the Dreamcast version wasn't really very good.

However, I would kill for ports of Daytona USA 2, Sega Rally, Sega Rally 2 and Scud Race with the same level of quality.

Also, Panzer Dragoon and Panzer Dragoon Zwei would be nice.

To tell you the truth, Skies of Arcadia is the only one I care on that list. If they do release it, better be the gamecube version.

panzer dragoon saga was awesome and almost nobody has played it. There are what, 10,000 copies printed in english?

For everyone interested in playing all 3 Shining Force 3 scenarios in english, go here:

It has been fully translated. You can play with an emulator, or an actual saturn (which I prefer). The only requirement is that you own physical copies of all of the games, for obvious, legal reasons. The site only provides patch files, that require the actual disks.

I'm also playing through them for the 3rd time, and am doing a video playthrough on YouTube. I'm still on Scenario 1, but have a look if you're interested:

If they released SF3 for PSN, I would definitely buy it, even if it was only the first scenario, and I had no intention of playing the digital copy. I'd buy it, just to do my part, to support it. We need more games like this...badly...
Jallen  +   1054d ago
Interesting but wouldn't you need a Japanese Saturn, or a modded Saturn, to play the disks in the first place?
kalkano  +   1054d ago
Yep. I forgot that piece. I use an Action Replay 4-1 cart (allows you to play import games), an American Saturn (only modded to not know when the disc door is open), and the Saturn swap trick. It's pretty easy, actually. You can find instructions through the site I linked, and a little Google searching. Or, you can just emulate it.

Yea I doubt Skies of Arcadia is coming to XBL. Whenever it get's re-released that game is going to be milked for every dollar.
