Sega talked up the possibility of classic Dreamcast games coming to the Nintendo Switch again at this year's Tokyo Game Show and it sounds like talks are moving forward in a big way.
Sega recently published a poll on Twitter asking fans what games they'd like to see on a Sega Ages Dremcast collection. The results were presented at Tokyo Game Show with the top three spots taken by Jet Set Radio Series, Shenmue 1 & 2, and Azel: Panzer Dragoon RPG respectively. And Sega is paying close attention to these polls.
In an interview with Famitsu (thanks Nintendo Everything for the translation), Sega M2 president Naoki Horii revealed, "at the time, it seemed likely that we'd be able to emulate Dreamcast software on the Nintendo Switch. Depending on whether you're emulating software or remaking the source code entirely, Porting something completely different." Horii added that the possibility of emulation "increased the number of titles [Sega] were able to choose from.
What's more Sega Ages supervisor Yosuke Okunari said, "I haven't really come to a conclusion yet, but I wonder if it'd be better to release more titles from the list in a manner similar to the Virtual Console (in their original state) or to hand-pick a select few with added features (like the Grantnoff boss in the 3DS version of Thunder Blade)..."
This opens the possibility that rather than just straight-up emulating Dreamcast games similar to the Virtual Console, Sega could revamp old titles with additional content. Either way, it seems Sega is seriously considering how to move forward with a Sega Ages Dreamcast collection for the Nintendo Switch.
