SEGA of America is reimagining one of its "most beloved IPs" according to a job listing posted by the company.
hrm...altered beast, streets of rage, echo the dolphin? Make it happen Sega
vectorman loved that game in the genesis days
was gonna say that 2 LOL alot of peeps dont remember this game and im like waaaaaaa.....
virtua cop, thunder balde, space harrier, etc...? All of those and plenty more should get some next gen facelifts. edit: ok a little thought process here. It says SEGA of "AMERICA" so it more than likely wont be any of the obvious ones. Also, it states "reimagining" which indicates it will not just simply be an update. I can think of a reimagining they did recently with Golden Axe: Beast Rider. Nothing to do with golden axe other than the name. So here is a list of ALREADY remade games: Outrun Sega Rally House of the Dead Sonic After Burner Golden Axe: Beast Rider and I'm sure there are a few others. That leaves some of the more obvious ones like hang on, space harrier, galaxy force, shinobi (they already did one for ps2). Also, while there are plenty of good IP's only a few are really "beloved". I'm thinking either alex kid or wonderboy. I dont know if those were SEGA US or JP IP's but they sure do go way back.
Wonderboy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!! but yeah... always welcome a classic remake if done right.
Crazy Taxi? Shemnue?
@ Sub4Dis- Power Stone is a Capcom series, not Sega!!!!
love power stone but like tito said its cap com series
Panzer Dragoon... I can dream can't I?
Shenmue was the first thing that came to mind for me... there is so much demand for it.
I'd love to see a new Streets of Rage
Wish they just make a new ip
wot about: alex the kidd shinobi space harrier wonder boy ground zero texas night trap eternal champions edit: I would have said Shenmue, but I do not wish to have my heartbroken again!
I had to lol at that one. Ground zero texas was pretty good. Night trap...all I can see is those cheesy girls singing that theme song while avoiding the baddies. Classic gaming cheese right there. Sewer shark ranks right there as well.
Alex the Kidd in Miricle World. Loved that game!
Sega simply make bad games. They had their time with sonic and since then they can't seem to make a single game I would call above average. edit: OK sega simply publish bad games lol.
Sega is a publisher, they don't make games. They have have devs like Sonic Team and Platinum game to develop games for them.
Streets of Rage! Do...Do..Don't tell me...reimagining of..... Astal! Bonanza Brothers? Beast Warrior? Outrun? Flicky? Fighting Vipers? Virtual On? Clockwork Knight? Pulseman? Burning Rivals? Virtua Racing? Rent a Hero? Teletubbies?
OMG streets of rage. They could make it a 3d game similar to fighting force, but with more cool stuff.
@topDudeMan Fighting force was going to be streets of rage but sega had a disagreement with core/eidos before it was released because the game was going to be released on sega's competitors consoles. So core/eidos changed the game title and a few other minor things so they would not get sued by sega when they released the game.
Come on Sega make it happen!!! He is my money! Get it done! Don't forget Panzer Dragoon Saga Online!!!! One of the most valuable games ever made! I loved the Old Sega.
lol Bonanza Brothers! that game was so awesome
I would love for an HD sidescrolling Streets of Rage game.
OMG, Please let it be JET SET RADIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shenmue!!!!!!!! Hey a guy can only wish.
Yes a thousand times - that game is glorious. Just one of the most perfect, charming little platformers I've ever had the joy to play again and again. The soundtrack is still amazing by todays standards.
Obviously Shenmue ;)
Oh man I hope its true.
I don't want them re-imagining or changing that shiz. People want a sequel to that beloved franchise and if possible, HD ports of the first 2 games. Sega cannot get much right these days, and if they change Shenmue or re-imagine it, they would probably get it wrong, and be doing the number one thing fans wouldn't have wanted.
Shenmue! Sakura Taisen! Panzer Dragoon! You can also bring us Valkyria Chronicles 3 while your at it :3
it still amazes me that they built the canvas engine for Valkyria Chronicles for Ps3 and haven't made a sequel to it yet on ps3. The sequel is where you strengthen the game and franchise and they made a mistake by taking it to psp. i hope they make a true ps3 sequel to that brilliant game.
Not to mention Valkyria Chronicles (PS3) sold more in the west than in Japan and they put the sequels on the PSP which aren't exactly strong in the west. I tell you Sega just knows how to kill a good franchise... T^T
i doubt it's shenmue.so let me start up my i don't care online meter.....
i doubt it's valkyria Chronicles.so let me start up MY i don't care online meter..... :P. wouldn't mind shenmue either just to see what the hype is about because I never played them before
For the love of Yevon let it be Jet Set Radio!
A FFX and JSR fan? Bubble up.
Ah the memories....
Failing that, Jet Set Radio.
Its a shame that their most recent reimaginings/remakes are pretty sh*t, I hope they get this right, whatever it may be :)
The latest Sonic wasn't... thats if you played it
I did, and it was horrible. Ran like crap
Hmm.. Well Im sorry you didnt enjoy it. Maybe this new game will be better for you.
Kind of hope its Streets of Rage or Altered Beast we need an online co-op beat em up.
I hope it's Streets of Rage, Shenmue, Crazy Taxi or Jet Set Radio.
Comix zone please :)
Jet Set Radio
Damn Sam! Exciting times!
Jet Set Radio. Please SEGA, make it happen!
Pengo! It's got to be Pengo!
They're or were making an arcade port on the PSN.
I want rocket night adventure.....I know it's a konami game but a gamer can dream.
Sonic will be turned into a FPS.
I can imagine Shadow with a Russian accent already. XD
It better be Shining Force 4 or a new Phantasy Star.
Either would be awesome but we need a new PS similar to the old ones on the master system and genesis. I love PSO but I yearn for the old school games to be updated.
Either Street of rage shining force 1 player phantasy star(probably not !) Shinobi
jet set radio
Jet Grind/Set Radio please since the chances of it being Shenmue are slim to none.
If it's not Skies of Arcadia or Armada then I honestly could care less.
Skies of Arcadia, Shenmue, Phantasy Star... sadly, I'm sure it won't be any of those! :/
Yeah, I have two concerns here... Firstly, "reimagining"... every time a game has been reimagined this gen it's either turned into an FPS or tried to pull in a bigger fanbase by making everything casual mode. Secondly, it won't be Shenmue, which is a shame, because they couldn't reimagine and start over again, people want Shenmue to be a direct sequel.
Seems a lot of people want streets of rage back (me included). I don't want them to keep the side-scrolling, though. I still want stages, but in a 3d environment. It could be awesome.
I kind of hope it's Streets of Rage. I would say Shenmue, but the keyword "reimagining" tells me otherwise since it seems unlikely they would already reboot it. They should really consider turning Phantasy Star into a mainstream series aside from the MMO coming out.
All this speculation/excitement, but hate to break it to you guys it's just likely to be another Sonic game.
I was thinking about that too, but they have already re-imagined that more than the fingers on my hand lol. Seriously though,I have always been big fan of the 16-bit genesis/mega drive sonic games. And sonic is a great IP, but they have tried to re-imagine that series many times and only recently(since sonic adventure which is a good sonic game) have become successful with re-imagining that ip(sonic 4*they almost nailed it with this title* and sonic generations-I plan to get this game in the near future). So it would not make sense to re-imagine the sonic ip since it has already been done and have only been recently successful at re-imagining the sonic ip.
