Yuji Naka Wants to Make Dreamcast 2

Sonic creator, Yuji Naka, has stated that he would like to work on a Dreamcast 2. While their haven’t been any official plans for a Dreamcast 2, the fact that it is even being considered is pretty big.

The announcement came from London during Yuji’s promo tour of “Ivy the Kiwi?”, who said:

“I do miss those old days when I was heavily involved in hardware making at Sega. I was involved in most of the consoles and controllers that Sega came up with. If I have the opportunity in the future I want to be involved again with hardware making. It would be ideal if I could become some sort of advisor working with the platform makers in future. I think if I can work really well with the platform makers then it’s good for everyone, because I can then come up with totally new games. If Ivy the Kiwi? does well in Europe then maybe I can make Dreamcast 2. 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.”

The question is, why hasn’t production for this bad boy started already?

  1. If it weren’t for the fact that it’s hard enough to afford to buy consoles from Sony, Microsoft, AND Nintendo, I might want another SEGA system. Until there are less competitors making video game hardware, however, I think it would be best for my (and everyone’s) wallet(s) if SEGA kept out of the console market.

  2. It wouldn’t just be expensive for the consumer, it would also become expensive for Sega. Being as Sega is a couple generations behind, the would need to come up with enough money and partners to just create online servers, granted if their intention is join the fight, online play is the biggest thing, following 3d and motion game play. Sega has the titles, but if we are going to want to buy something that’s behind the curve they need to develop something new, maybe touch screen controls? I guess we’ll see.
