The move comes as SEGA announced a new business plan titled road to 2020. The company wouldn’t reveal the various series they are looking to resurrect, but this news will come as welcome news to fans of SEGA and their extensive back catalogue of video games.

    1. I remember SMB…wait, that doesn’t work, haha, Super Monkey Ball on Gamecube. Very good times playing that game, and a lot of laughs. Good call!

    1. Because Hideki Naganuma is already working on his own indie game, I can’t see how can Sega make a new Jet Set Radio without him.

      But I can damn well agree most of these classics deserve to be revived, especially House of the Dead and Super Monkey Ball.

      1. Dang I didnt know the creator was doing different things. But yes Id love for Sega to get The House of the Dead back again. I want some more light gun games.

  1. I would love to see a new Ristar game myself possibly a new Ecco the Dolphin game as well but I’m not holding my breath.

      1. Whoever believes crap like Nights or Space Channel 5 have anything on Metroid Prime, Zelda Breath of the Wild or Mario Galaxy should drink a gallon of bleach.

      2. King Kalas X3 {Greatness Awaits. This use to be something that awaited those for all consoles. It's sad it's mostly just a PS4 slogan these days. Maybe Nintendo will get back to that greatness with the Switch. Only time will tell.} says:

        I wouldn’t bother. Due to some other comments she’s made, she seems to be part of the anti-to-everything-but-Nintendo group. Oh fuck this alternative facts shit! She’s just a fanboy. Or in this case, fangirl! Nothing to see here!

  2. I guess that Switch could factor in here quite a lot, judging by the appetite gamers had for Bomberman – that game exceeded expectations. Also a lot of eshop revivals have done really well

  3. A new Phantasy Star Online is all I need and I could leave this life happily. Even an HD remake of Ep I & II with online and a few new features and items would be welcome. One could dream…

      An extended main story would be nice. I hated the way the originals ended. So many questions left unanswered. Oh & more to the side quest concerning that robot that looked like a maid. I loved that side story more than I did the game’s main story and was pretty sad when the thing ended with no resolution. I was hoping Episode II would continue it but no such luck. :/

      1. I agree completely man. The thing with Red Ring Rico confused the hell out of me lol. The story telling wasn’t all that good but dammit the gameplay and collectibles were awesome. I just have so many great memories playing with my friends locally and online. I still play every now and then. I think any PSO at this point would be appreciated.

        The game heavily hinted at what happened to Rico, though, but it still left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth.

    Streets Of Rage
    Golden Axe
    Skies Of Arcadia
    Super Monkey Ball
    Crazy Taxi
    Jet Set Radio

    I’ll take direct sequels to Phantasy Star Online Episodes 1 & 2 if HD remasters with extended stories aren’t in the cards. I still have a ton of questions left over from those two games & I hate leaving shit unresolved or on cliffhangers. That & I’d love to have more story with the robot maid side quest story. I got pretty emotionally involved & attached to that side story in Episode 1…
