Another 5 titles heading to DC via JoshProd!

Dreamcast fans rejoice! Remember earlier in the year when JoshProd and Rush On Game brought us 5 PAL region games to add you our collections? Well, in an exclusive scoop announced by the guys over at the Dreamcast Junkyard this morning, it’s now known that another 5 games are coming with the possibility of even more later down the line.

What we have this time around is actually more daring one would say, last time we had 3 games that had already been released on Dreamcast (Dux 1.5, Alice’s Mom’s Rescue, The Ghost Blade) and two were semi-new to Dreamcast (Rush Rush Rally Racing Reloaded and Breakers) the line up of titles in this batch seem like really good choices and I’m sure many Dreamcast owners are going to want the whole set.

Zia and the Goddesses of Magic has already seen a release on the console recently, but we can’t help but feel it’s going to gain better exposure this time around, it’s not the most fantastic DC game out there, but well worth adding a PAL version to your collection rather than the generic original release.

Sturmwind again, has already seen a release on the console a few years back now, but if one title was deserving of a second (third, Dragonbox Shop handled the second) wind, it’s this one – perhaps one of the most impressive Dreamcast games in recent memory, if you missed out on some of the other editions, now is the time to grab it.

Flashback – this is a reworking of the classic 90’s game using the original source code to enhance the game slightly for the more powerful hardware, JoshProd actually got the licence to make this game, so that in itself is pretty significant.

Ganryu – A NeoGeo title which is being developed by Visco, much in the same way that Breakers was released on Dreamcast, we could see a trend of NeoGeo software finding a more affordable home on the system.

4X4 Jam – By far the most important release on the list here, this game is actually an existing game on PSP and mobile platforms, the source code is again being used to port it to Sega’s hardware and one would hope that we could see other mobile or handheld games coming across to fill out the Dreamcast’s software roster. It doesn’t look half bad either from what we’ve seen Tom at TDCJunkyard play of it.

So there you have it! New games to play on your console, you can catch us playing Dux 1.5 and talking a little about the PAL style version in the linked video, also there’s a link to the breaking story from The Dreamcast Junkyard and also the pre-order page on Rush On Game’s website which will go live on August 4th 2017, the games are said to retail for around 30 Euros each and no doubt there’ll be a bundle like the first wave of games.

Replacement Dreamcast Power Board Seeks Funding.

As many of you are probably aware, by owning a few stockpiled Dreamcast units, us as owners are always looking to keep playing our beloved Dreamcast units but this can become an increasingly hard task with various components getting tired and worn as the years progress, well fear not! There’s a guy that’s got your back if your power supply unit (PSU) has decided it no longer has the power to make your 128 bit dreams come true – the DreamPSU is a device which is currently seeking funding through Indiegogo, this compact device reworks the way the power is handled through the console whilst retaining the original 4-pin configuration meaning you can simply plug it in where the old unit once lay.

The benefits to this new revised design is mainly that the amount of heat that would usually be generated by the original unit is now drastically reduced making for a cooler, and probably more efficiant running of the system in general, naturally this can also free up room inside the plastic casing of the console for more activities. The console however would then run on a 12V power supply unit, so in theory any potential buyer could use a power plug from their own country without the need to physically step down the voltage (or change the original power supply, which most do).

You can take a peek at the funding campaign here :

Seems like a brilliant idea to us!
