Sega explains why they are skipping Saturn games on XBLA/PSN
According to Sega’s Yosuke Okunari, the producer of upcoming XBLA and PSN Dreamcast re-releases, Sega will not offer re-makes of Saturn games.
During an interview with Impess Watch, Okunari said that, “The Genesis and Dreamcast are well known, but Saturn is unknown. During that period, PlayStation and Nintendo 64 were a success overseas, but to be honest Saturn was not a success. Because of this, we decided on Dreamcast,”
“It’s not that we’re ignoring Saturn I think you can see this, considering that we ported Nights Into Dreams and other titles,” he added.
Although he clearly states that they will not make these ports, he does state that there is a slight chance that some titles will eventually make an appearance on Xbox Live and PSN.
“What we announced this time is a project where we will have consecutive releases of titles that were debuted on Dreamcast. Separate from this, we’re of course thinking about ports of Saturn games. It’s the same as how Sega Ages and Virtual Console were separate existences. It’s not that we have no intention of porting Saturn titles, so please share your requests.” he said.
