Fuck Colours and Unleashed, I want Jet Set Radio Future on PC.


Agreed. My sister's holiday disc bundle went to crap only a few months since we had the game, and her OG Xbox was painfully sluggish for most of its life, has a broken video cable, and for all I know could be anywhere.

It would be nice if Sega buried the exclusivity hatchet on it and most of their other console-exclusive third-party games of the era. I'd love to play it and Sega GT 2002 on modern platforms. :/

Sonic Shuffle or riot.

Sega, hire me and I'll port it for you with online multiplayer. Real talk.

Fix the loading times and update the models and I'm all for this.

On the topic of ports, if not a PC port, but surely the 3DS would have been capable of running a port of Sonic Adventure? I really feel like they missed a major cash grab opportunity there.

Sega should do Steam or console ports of the Saturn Sonic games, like Sonic 3D Blast Saturn Version, Sonic R, and have someway to reincorporate the Sonic Jam Sonic World side-game. I find it kind of dumb that Sega would port the Genesis edition of Sonic 3D Blast, rather than the Saturn edition (the superior version).

I understand there's Sonic Gems collection and Sega PC ports, but the Wii is gone, and it's a hassle to find classic Sega PC discs and get them to run in Windows 10. The 3DS could run these games, but what's the point? Sega should definitely try to bring the Saturn games back to life on modern consoles.

A: People would buy them.

B: People would buy them.

C: Being able to play Sonic Adventure (or any of the Saturn games like you said) on a handheld, anywhere anytime would be fun and would show us just how far technology has come since the Dreamcast/Saturn days. I'm in love with my Ocarina of Time/ Majora's Mask 3D. :3
Imagine Sonic R on handheld, being able to use the local peer finding thing to set up races. XD
Or Sonic the Fighters, setting up battles or fighting against people far away through your wifi!

D: People would buy them.

Do these games have any selling power anymore though? I feel like any game pre Sonic Unleashed game would need a full Crash N-Sane Trilogy esq rebuild at this point, as SA2B and particularly SADX are very lazy ports of now very old games.

Not really sure 3DS versions of the Adventure games would require way more work than the usual port of the game would need. Even at a lower resolution, they'd likely have to downgrade it graphically to get it to run well.

Also, if they'd start work on 3DS ports at this point, the 3DS would likely be a dead system by the time they'd be finished. :v:
