The remastered versions of NiGHTS and Jet Set Radio were great. We haven’t seen further HD remasters of Saturn and Dreamcast titles, unfortunately, but if Sega were to release remastered games from their previous catalogue, which games would you like to play? And which games would make sense?
I think these five games would make the most sense:
- Jet Set Radio Future (a much smoother game than Jet Set Radio, this would be a natural follow up to the JSR port).
- Panzer Dragoon Orta (the most refined Panzer shooter; graphically it still holds up quite well compared to the aged visuals of the Saturn trilogy).
- Skies of Arcadia Legends (the enhanced version of the Dreamcast classic).
- Shenmue I and II (given that Shenmue III is happening, these would be welcome; apparently Sega are looking into it, but there are licensing complications).
Games that I would like to play remastered versions of, but seem less likely:
- Panzer Dragoon 1, Zwei, and Saga
- Shining Force III trilogy (translated)
- Dark Savior
- Burning Rangers
- Ecco: Defender of the Future (I feel the difficulty would put a lot of gamers off, but it would look great in HD)
- Gun Valkyrie? (I only played a demo of it, but it seems suitable for an HD remaster)
