If you happen to have a few years as a “gamer”, then you must have known the famous Dreamcast, the latest console from SEGA. After all, this was a console launched in 1998 and one that most marked the world of video games. This is because in case you don’t know, it was one of the first to achieve the feat of allowing players to be able to talk to each other, despite the distance, to download games over the Internet and even to browse a browser. (Of course, without using a PC.)
That said, we know that the controller for that console is now being recreated by Retro-Bit, which plans to launch it on the market very soon. With only a few minor changes so that players can feel the nostalgia but also some of the comfort they are used to in these new generations.
Remember the SEGA Dreamcast console controller? It’s back!
Therefore, when purchasing the new Dreamcast remote, you can choose between the wired version and the wireless version, depending on the type of experience you want to have. In addition, we also know that the only analog that exists in the control, is now much better and adapted to the times that are going on, in addition to this, we have access to a new D-pad and also a Layout with 6 buttons. So that you can play the famous fighting games you were used to before.
The Sega Dreamcast launched- in North America 20 years ago, on Sept. 9, 1999. The system enjoyed a few but memorable time in the limelight with some truly fantastic games and few features that would inspire future consoles it was the first console with built in internet-.
But ultimately a lack of third party support, a somewhat underpowered architecture and the fact that the opposition PlayStation 2 could play DVDs as well as games which would mean a premature demise. None of it will stop us from remembering it fondly or wishing for a Dreamcast Classic.
This way, the new remote can be connected to your SEGA Dreamcast console if you still have it, or to a PC, due to its USB adapter. (Welcome to the world of emulators!) However, don’t expect the experience to be the same as with the DualShock 4 or Xbox controller. This is because, despite being a comfortable device to play certain games, it turns out to be strange due to the fact that it does not follow the standards we are used to.
In short, this new command is expected to be launched in late 2020, still without a fixed price announced. So stay tuned for further news that may come up soon on this subject.
