Sega Hints at Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia Re-releases

on March 14, 2012 12:07 PM

One of Sega’s most beloved titled, Jet Set Radio, is set for a digital re-release across many platforms this summer and fans may be wondering what other Dreamcast favorites they have in the pipeline. GameReactor featured an interview with Sega’s brand manager Ben Harbone which gives hope to fans of some of the more RPG-centric titles in the Dreamcast’s library.

You can check out the interview here, and if you jump to about 7:15, you’ll see he’s asked about the games that fans have made known they would like to see re-released digitally, and Mr. Harbone mentions specifically that Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia are the most requested titles and that they “may or may not be” in the works. I’m going to take that as a confirmation, but unfortunately we can’t make that official as of now. All I can say is that I would buy Skies of Arcadia in a heartbeat.
