SEGA Bass Fishing
and Space Channel 5 Part 2
were confirmed to be heading to Xbox LIVE Arcade back in October 2010. Originally slated for release during early 2011, things went very quiet when the two games were confirmed as appearing on the Dreamcast Collection
retail disc. Rumoured release dates continued to circulate, but SEGA themselves have now confirmed that the two games will hit the marketplace next month.
Here is a quick reminder of the premise of both games for those of you who haven't played the Dreamcast Collection
Space Channel 5 Part 2 is the infectiously fun action rhythm game that follows fan-favorite and funktastically spunky newscaster Ulala as she fights off the Rhythm Rogues. These dastardly dance deviants have captured the noble leader, Space President Peace, and thousands of other innocents — and forced them to dance until there is literally no tomorrow.
Although there is considerably less dancing in SEGA Bass Fishing, it nonetheless runs with the Dreamcast spirit of being infectiously fun and engaging — perhaps bass fishing is not your idea of wild action, but this game has a unique charm all its own, and like the best of the Dreamcast era runs with a concept as far as it can, concerned both with being a great fishing game and being a great game on its own. Or put less dramatically: Fish!!!
Both games are due to be released on October 5th and will cost 800 MSP apiece.
