Sega of America and Sega Europe have announced that a packaged compilation of classic titles from the Sega Dreamcast console will hit retail shelves for the Xbox 360 and the PC, as well as a digital download for the PC. The Dreamcast Collection reportedly features enhanced graphics for both platforms versions, as well as achievements and online leader boards for each game. The package will be available on February 25, 2011 in Europe and February 22, 2011 in North America.
The Dreamcast Collection includes four very different games: Sonic Adventure, Crazy Taxi, Sega Bass Fishing, and Space Channel 5: Part 2. Here's how Sega is pitching the games: "Players will get to enjoy four very different Dreamcast experiences, from hopping behind the steering wheel of Crazy Taxi, to taking things a little slower by luring in their fish before catching them hook, line and sinker with SEGA Bass Fishing. Alternatively, take over as intergalactic news reporter Ulala in Space Channel 5: Part 2 and dance your way past the evil Rhythm Rogues, or make it all about speed in Sonic's first Dreamcast outing, Sonic Adventure!"
"The Dreamcast console is still remembered as a pioneering console for online gaming," Gary Knight, VP of Marketing at SEGA of America and SEGA Europe, said in a statement. "We are delighted to be able to offer to our large community of dedicated fans a collection such as Dreamcast Collection for them to enjoy old favourites on this generation of consoles."
