Next round of SEGA games announced!

Altered Beast, Gunstar Heroes, and Chu Chu Rocket!

October releases...

Chu Chu Rocket will also be releasing on iPad

Altered Beast, (to use an equine analogy) is not one of the thoroughbreds in SEGA's stable...IMHO it's boring and way too short. If SEGA prices above $0.99 this game will tank.

Gunstar Heroes - fantastic Treasure game... But I'm scared of SEGA's emulator process given their previous releases of other frantic fast games like Sonic. The sloppy emulator controls may render the game overly difficult... However I'd like to be optimistic that SEGA can surprise everyone though!

Chu Chu Rocket- features the cutest mice, and great multiplayer! Simple graphics, that will look great on iPhone/ iPad if SEGA does a proper port which it is sounding promising...

I still think that SEGA needs to release more of their brilliant RPGs like Phantasy Star 3 & 4, Shining in the Darkness, Landstalker, Sword of Vermillion etc. But I guess SEGA's iOS team knows better...

Oh goodness... Gunstar Heroes and Chu Chu Rocket?

I constantly look for that one good "Chu Chu" clone, but still haven't found one with the same amount of charm as the actual Chu Chu Rocket. Now Chu Chu Rocket really is coming out.

And if Gunstar Heroes is coming, I wonder if Treasure will think about bringing Ikaruga to the App Store (or some of their other games, too). Wishful thinking, I'm sure. But a fanboy can dream, can't he?

Chu Chu Rocket will feature Game Center, all the original Dreamcast levels and Bluetooth & Wifi multiplayer!
Could this be a proper SEGA iOS port instead of barebones emulation?

I hope they include retina display support!

Please make them drop that emulator! Gunstar Heroes will be horror with that thing!

If they release Streets of Rage 2 in a shitty emulator they deserve to be shot.

No House of the Dead? I know it's not a Genesis game that they could get running in their crappy emulator, but it just seems like the ideal game to port to the iPhone. Just replace the mouse with touch controls like several apps already have, and it's finished. I just hope they finally figure that out before it's too late.

Gunstar Heroes is a classic treasure title hopefully someone from treasure is involved in the port but I really doubt it.

I was hoping that the next Phantasy Star games would be released ...come on sega, release Shinobi III and Revenge of Shinobi too, and don't forget Strider, while you're at it.
