Yuji Naka, one of the creators of the original Sonic the Hedgehog game, recently was quoted as saying he’d like to create a successor to the highly successful Dreamcast. In an interview yesterday with gaming website CVG, Naka stated “I’m hoping to work on Dreamcast 2.”
Though this quote, out of context, might not hold much weight, Naka continues to mention that he misses the days when he used to be more directly involved in making hardware.
And while the Dreamcast 2 is still in the very early rumor stages, Naka’s final quote to CVG is quite blatant: “Of course Dreamcast was my baby back at Sega and I want to carry on making good games for the European market and one day I’m hoping it gives me the opportunity to work on Dreamcast 2.”
Would the Dreamcast 2 be able to hold its own amongst modern consoles like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360? Who knows. But if anything does come to fruition from these quotes, in a few years Yuji Naka will be making some Sega fans very happy indeed.
