You're wasting your time. Sega honestly don't care what fans want. Wonder why some of Sega games haven't been localize yet even after fans showed interest. If they deem it not profitable they won't do it.

It sad when you hear that fully English version of PSO2 but Sega won't release it in the US and EU because they fear it won't be profitable for them. Way to middle your fans Sega.

No tell what if they will do the same thing for Atlus games.

Don't forget about Valkyria Chronicles either. PS3 fans of the game have been berating Sega over it for years, and still nothing.

Sega will look at what else is doing well remake wise(say Tales of Symphonia Chronicles), and decide to make a competing game to that to capitalize on it.

I highly doubt they've suddenly become interested in what the fans want.

Edit:Changed Sony to Sega in that second paragraph.

i want old 2D side scrolled Sonic games....no 3D bull5hit.

Hell, even an HD remakes of old games would be great!
BG11579  +   649d ago
You are damn right!
They should be looking at the lastest Rayman games and start taking notes.
rainslacker  +   649d ago
We'll see a compilation disc with 30 "classic" Sega games before they remake a 2D Sonic game from the Genesis, or a brand new entry like Rayman.

Sega has some awesome IP's, I just wish they would actually utilize them once in a while instead of relying on Sonic to carry them all the time.

Sega need to get their ass in gear and bring back a HD Shinobi/Shadow Dancer
THamm  +   648d ago
MG Rising is the new Shinobi. They should license the engine and bring back the original Joe Musashi with all the Revenge of Shinobi flavor

You know I never fancied MGR.... But your comment may have just caused me to take a trip to the store
THamm  +   648d ago
If you liked Shinobi PS2 then you will enjoy it very much. The style is almost spot on identical in many areas just faster paced with tough boss fights the first go around. Had they replaced Raiden with Musashi and added Shinobi bosses it would have been the best. Heck even the cyborg dog could have been like Joe's dog in Shadow Dancer. I prefer Revenge of Shinobi but I liked Shinobi PS2 a lot too because it kept a lot of Shinobi elements in it.

New Shinobi entry and Shenmue III
isarai  +   649d ago
Streets of Rage!! bring that classic couch co-op back with a vengeance

Also we could really use a new Jet Set Radio, Shenmue, Beyond Oasis, and Shinobi
FlyingFoxy  +   648d ago
SOR2 was great, i loved the music in that game.. I'd actually prefer they bring it back over the regular dull fighting games they keep bringing out today.

In fact the last game i even played remotely close to that was that game mode in Tekken 3, the arcade side scrolling mode.

A new Desert Strike would be nice too.

mananimal  +   649d ago
And how long have diehards of Shenmue been asking for Shenmue 3?
I dont understand Sega's comments here, there history suggest just the opposite, I don't see them caring what fans want.

ZeekQuattro  +   648d ago
Obscure choice in games but both were well done & fun. I still have the Lion King (SNES) & I played Gargoyles on the Sega Channel a lot back in the day. I agree with that list. lol
ninjagoat  +   649d ago
If they where making games fans wanted Shenmue 3 would have been announced ages ago. Getting pissed off waiting.

Sega had some great classics! Streets of Rage 2, Shinobi, Golden Axe, Eternal Champions, Alex Kidd, Outrun, Hang On, Thunderblade, Vectorman, Sonic,Afterburner, Space Harrier, Zillion, Alien Syndrome, Alien Storm, just to name a few.

I've dreaming of remakes of these(excluding Golden Axe: Beast Rider) and many others for years. They even did some great licensed stuff(excluding Aliens:Colonial Marines) with Xmen,Spiderman, and Diehard Arcade.
johny5  +   649d ago
How about releasing a Shenmue HD collection for the ps4 then making Shenmue III to finish off the series!!! Damn you Sega! DO it!
sonic989  +   649d ago
