Considering how hard the 32X is to even software emulate, I doubt very much we'll see that here.

A shame in a way, it's bloody hard to find a working 32X now.


I didn't realize it was problematic at all.

Well you could say it's step above Mega Drive emulation... and Sega struggle to emulate the Mega Drive.


I can't see it happening. I think they'd more likely go the "Taxman remake Chaotix" route first, and I can't see that happening either.

Precisely this. It's not worth the effort considering the small number of decent 32X games.

I'd like to see them actually implement a Dreamcast controller.
They'd also have to ensure compatibility with an original Dreamcast VMU, and long ago, when I was a young man and I tried to tinker with such things, I remember how hard that was.

If they pull it off, it would make full, and complete Dreamcast emulation possible. You would be able to play with your Chao on the VMU once more.

They said they were going to a year ago, but haven't said anything since. They've been pretty unprofessional in the way they've handled information honestly.
