SEGA Dreamcast games will come to the Nintendo Switch. This was announced back when SEGA Ages was revealed but SEGA was not sure whether it was going to emulate existing games or remake them entirely for the device.
In a recent interview with SEGA’s Naoki Horii, we learned that SEGA is really close to getting Dreamcast games to run on the Nintendo Switch. While SEGA could have remade the games for the Nintendo Switch keeping in mind that it does have the source code, that would be a very long process.
Emulation is quicker. That is one of the main reasons why Sega has gone with emulation rather than remaking titles. Jet Set Radio was one of the most voted for game in a recent poll and the devs said that even though it was the most wanted game there was no certainty that it would be released for the Nintendo Switch. The following is what SEGA Ages producer Kagasei Shimomura had to say in this regard:
Jet Set Radio coming first in the most-wanted games poll for the SEGA Ages doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll get a port but he wants to meet the expectations of the fans.
Shenmue turned out to be the second most voted game and in third place was Panzer Dragoon Saga. Shenmue is a very popular game and Shenmue 3 also brought up the demand for the Dreamcast console. People are willing to pay a great deal for the game even if they do not have a console to play the game on.
It is safe to say that even though these games are pretty old, there is still a demand for them. Having the ability to play these games on the Nintendo Switch would be a great option for fans. It will also be a great addition to the Nintendo Switch games library.
Let us know what you think about SEGA Dreamcast games coming to the Nintendo Switch and whether or not you are interested in playing these games on the handheld console.
