New Dreamcast game is out now. Also available on even more obsolete hardware!

It makes us feel warm and fuzzy to know that someone, somewhere is still making games for Sega Dreamcast. It doesn't really matter that said games look like Mega Drive platformers and could probably run perfectly well on a Game Boy Advance. Fact is, a new star is shining in the darkness of Dreamcast's once-blue skies (we promised ourselves we wouldn't cry...) and you can buy it now with your actual money. Here's the launch trailer:

But that's not all. What if you don't want to buy GunLord on Dreamcast? We're not suggesting you don't want to buy it at all (perish the thought). We mean what if you had a different retro console in mind? Well, then fear not. You can buy a copy for that Neo Geo that you definitely still have hooked up to your telly. We're not even kidding - look, here's the listing on NG:Dev.'s official site:

Above: A new cartridge for NeoGeo. And in case you were concerned that not all 658 Megabits were going to be used, then... well. They only friggin' ARE!

If a new Neo Geo game cartridge or a $120 'Dragon Box version' (pictured right) of a brand new Dreamcast game doesn't massage your excitement glands, then either you need to sort your life out, or someone somewhere has made a grave misjudgement when they collated their audience research data.

But also, we feel professionally obliged to point out... the game doesn't look all that.

Sorry.

    We need more people to do stuff like this, imagine the possible expansion of innovation we couldn't see back then.

    As a passionate Dreamcast fan who still regularly plays his Dremacast games, I have to say it never ceases to make me happy when people keep making games for this wonderful system. I think it really says something about the quality of a system when people continue to pump out game after game for the thing long after it is "dead". Long live Dreamcast!

    Now I must find where my Dreamcast went...

    Looks like gaming's longest-living console just lived a whole lot longer.

    It's like Sonic and Metroid fupped a shmup in some divine threesome.

    Is this the Extended Cut ending for Mass Effect 3 that we were waiting for? :P
  • sirdilznik - June 26, 2012 8:34 a.m.

    Wait, what if I want to play it on my Atari Jaguar?
  • Galgomite - June 26, 2012 8:30 a.m.

    Gamesradar DOES get that there's a collector's market for stuff like this, right?

    Having written this article and also spent £125 on Radiant Silvergun for Saturn... yes.

    Epic Epic and Epic again, Justin where do you keep pulling these absolute gems of info from. Makes me wish I had invested in a Dreamcast now just to say in 2012 I would be buying a brand new game for it!
