Sega resurrects more Dreamcast AND Michael Jackson: Space Channel 5 pt 2 is going HD

Game by game, Sega's eldritch plan to possess our current consoles with the Dreamcast's immortal soul continues. First came Virtual On. Then Sonic Adventure. Crazy Taxi is on the way, and now, dragging its rotting miniskirt from the grave to dance anew, is Space Channel 5 part 2.

Due for HD re-release on XBLA and PSN early in 2011, the gloriously funky, kitschtastic rhythm action game from the developer of Rez is, to me at least, the most exciting addition to Sega's Dreamcast revisitation to date. Though that's possibly because I played the crap out of Crazy Taxi on the DC and always hated Sonic Adventure. Sega Bass Fishing is also on the way, but well, without the fishing rod controller I'm considerably less pumped.

Anyway, screenshots abound!

It's interesting that Sega has chosen to jump straight in with part 2 here rather than releasing the first game, well, first. Though it's perhaps advisable, given that the first one's pre-rendered backdrops would probably look as attractive as a dead warthog when blown up to HD.

This one on your digital shopping list?

    I sincerely hope this directly causes the podcast to play some more SC5 audio. I never played it, but what I hear of it is kinda interesting. If it's priced alright, I'll get it.

    Ulala looks like she is pleasuring herself in the photo that shows her standing next to Michael. That is all.
