Outrun is incredibly unlikely surely, for the same reason that you can't now buy Outrun 2 on PSN or XBLA.

Yep, it's another one of the awesome SEGA Ages releases.

I would love if they made an Outrun 3D Classic based on the PS2 Ages version. That would made me seriously consider a 3DS.

I was blown away by the 3D at the time (well until my eyes finally gave up!) and remember the game fondly. I would probably pick this up if it is reasonably priced.

Just for the memories mind you, the actual game was terrible and to be honest no way I'd put more than 5 or 10 minutes into it unless it is seriously upgraded.

Me too! Except I already have a 3DS. Hopefully it makes Nintendo convert their 16bit classics too. Super Metroid 3D, Yoshi's Island 3D, Super Mario Kart 3D need to happen. I hope they haven't stopped because of lackluster sales because 16bit conversions would be way more popular.

They can just use the modified version they included in Shenmue/Outrun 2 Xbox.

They also have been using an excellent pricing strategy, with games like Sonic Generations, All-Stars Racing Transformed, Tekken, etc., all priced excellently and lower than the norm despite all being quality titles.

I'm really hoping the 'SEGA is a terrible company' stigma wears off soon.

+1 so hard, excellent post. huge Yakuza fan here but you covered all the other bases as well, we should really do a thread about this sometime to help lay this meme to rest.

it'll be invaded by a) clowns who havent heard of Yu Suzuki and b) clowns who think sega sucks until their favorite mid-90s game/franchise sees a sequel by an entirely different team, but those people should be ignored anyway.

This game and Atari's S.T.U.N. Runner were probably the most mind-blowing arcade games back then.

A guy has decomposed OutRun and rewritten it from scratch in portable code, faithful to the original but with benefits of it bring a new engine. This means, amongst other things: 60fps OutRun on pretty much any platform you like.

I've always wondered if it's just coincidence, or if Space Harrier is intended to have some link to Fantasy Zone that's never actually been explored.

This game and Atari's S.T.U.N. Runner were probably the most mind-blowing arcade games back then.

I don't think it's as easy as "modest port," I think the whole point has to do with the 3D slider. Never minding the "stretch effect" gimmick they used in Excitebike, the slider is supposed to accommodate the fact that people see 3D differently from one another with their technique (and thus why they included the slider at all, so you could adjust to what is comfortable for you). In fact, some 3D classics games (Xevious) even have extra depth settings built into their options on top of this. I realize much of the 3D presentation (eStore, etc) is pretty "binary" - all on, or all off - but I suspect that it must be a difference between static images and gameplay.

Anyway, the point is to start with programming and testing all of the depth for every element of these games, it's probably differently complicated depending on the complexity of the game (like I was saying earlier, there might be games which have to be seriously rebuilt to deal with this - lost source code, old very specific techniques, etc) where they can't necessarily throw it through a pipeline/engine like they'd have when putting a new game through such a system (and designing it that way from the ground up).

Somewhat unrelated, but here (podcast interview - blog posts) is a modern-day programmer discussing the undertaking of "converting" OG Prince of Persia (Apple II) to run on C64 hardware; and even for such a relatively "primitive" game and with so many great tools/docs available, it quickly becomes clear how much of a pain in the ass such a project truly can be.

Hard to believe they kicked this gen off with terrible Backbone developed ports.

Well they actually started off last gen with great M2 ports on the Wii.

Was one of the first games I bought for my SMS back in the day. And Space Harrier II was one of the first Genesis games I bought.


Still prefer the SMS version though.

I remember reading some kids magazine from the 80's that had a cool little easter egg for the SMS version that turned your character into a ship of some sort. Always thought that was neat, but I hardly ever used it. There's just something insanely awesome about running/flying around a world as a regular looking dude carrying a giant cannon.
