SEGA is gearing up to pull Jet Set Radio from Google Play in the very near future. This won’t be a permanent disappearance of the game but there is also no exact date announced yet as to when it will return to Google Play once it is gone.
Today Android gamers get a little bit of a treat, especially if you enjoy playing Dreamcast games. That is because Reicast, a multi-platform Dreamcast emulator that works quite well, has arrived onto Android today. Reicast is actually a fork of Nulldce for those of you familiar with that emulator. This release is being labeled as an Alpha version but once you dive into it, Reicast seems to have more of a beta feel to it.
For those of you who used to own, or still do own, a Dreamcast console then there is some good news for you today as the classic RC racing game Re-Volt has made its way to Android thanks to WeGo Interactive. Originally released back in 1999, Re-Volt quickly became a favorite to many fans who enjoy racing games and now we can enjoy Re-Volt on the go with this new mobile version.
It looks as though yesterday’s Greatest Hits free apps and games promo was only for one day and is now over. However, Amazon’s free app/game of the day continues to chug along and today’s freebie is actually a game from Sega called ChuChu Rocket. This game originally appeared back on the Dreamcast console system and was brought over to Android some time ago.
One game a lot of people have been waiting for is the revamped version of the Dreamcast classic Jet Set Radio from Sega. We mentioned a couple of weeks ago that it would be landing on Google Play on November 29th, 2012 (today in other words) and sure enough there are no more delays and Jet Set Radio is available for download.
One game which we are sure many people play on their favorite Dreamcast emulator for their Android device is Crazy Taxi, the racing game where you haul ass around each city, collecting fare and making money for a job well done, or at least a job done fast. Well Sega has revealed that this classic Dreamcast title will be making it’s way to Android soon.
If you told me a decade back that I’ll be enjoying some recently released Sonic Adventures and Crazy Taxi on a handheld, Sony’s no less, I would have scoffed at the thought and blamed it on the case of some Y2K hysteria. Nevertheless, these tittles have made its way on the often over looked OnLive game streaming app.
For those of you who had the pleasure of owning a DreamCast from Sega at some point in your life will probably have played one of the more popular puzzle games for the system called ChuChu Rocket. It seems Sega is taking a serious look at pushing into the Android Market as this is another titles that is now available from them.
It seems like the Dreamcast Emulator, nullDC, which is being worked on by “drk || Raziel”, is making some steady progress. While still in the really early stages of development, the developers have gotten a couple of games to run on it. One of the games happens to be one that everyone wants to play, Crazy Taxi! Check out the video after the break.
It seems we don’t have enough emulators just yet for Andorid and developer “drk || Raziel” is working on curing that little issue with a Dreamcast Emulator for Android. Currently they have the nullDC BIOS booting on a Samsung Captivate which means actual games being playable should be possible in the very near future.
