Sega is considering filling the Saturn-sized gap in their digital distribution portfolio.
Yosuke Okunari, the man behind the recently announced PSN and XBLA Dreamcast releases, said that up to this point Sega Saturn games have not been available on the digital distribution networks simply because it represents their least successful console.
Okunari told Impress Watch (via Andriasang and 1up), “When you look globally, the Genesis and Dreamcast are well known, but Saturn is unknown. During that period, PlayStation and Nintendo 64 were a success overseas, but to be honest Saturn was not a success. Because of this, we decided on Dreamcast.”
However, he continued, “What we announced this time is a project where we will have consecutive releases of titles that were debuted on Dreamcast. Separate from this, we’re of course thinking about ports of Saturn games.”
So there ya go, soon you may be able to download the highlights of all Sega’s consoles. XBLA/PSN Panzer Dragoon? Yes please!
