We should have seen this coming. It did have at least two Dreamcast demo pods at gamescom in the summer.

RedSpot Games has announced its newest title for – wait for it… – Dreamcast. Yes, that’s right, Sega’s last console that died a massive death nearly ten years ago.

The German publisher showed off Sturmwind, an arcade shoot-em-up.

It’ll have 16 levels, three selectable difficulty modes, 20 boss fights, region-free and works on both PAL50 and 60 TVs as well as NTSC.

Going old-school. And by old-school, we mean 2000.

There’s a video below.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    Why not?

    BTW, it’s Sturmwind, not Strumwind. How hard is it to copy & paste foreign words? ;)

    He says ‘We wanted to continue supporting the platform as it can never be too old for us and never too unknown’

    She then says ‘So your big fans of Dreamcast and you just thought the dream must go on’

    So that’s the reason they are created it for Dreamcast. Seems a bit odd, i’m sure they will try and sell it on Steam one day too but I guess we’ll see.

    hmmmm
    if you sell for dreamcast you are giving yourself a very limted user base as there only a small amount of people that have a dreamcast as they arent in production anymore

    Surely theres no profit to be made on a dreamcast game…

    to be fair they’ve got the market to themselves at least. plus its being sold at 35 euros and their publishing it themselves. I think its targetted at the eastern market aswell(scrolling shoot-em-up). I think they key to making money out of this though is to port to live/psn and wiiware.
