Sega Australia Reveals New Virtual-On Release


Sega Australia has just had Virtual-On: Oratorio Tangram rated by the Classification Board. It received a PG and is listed as a “multi-platform” release. The frantic mech fighting game was originally released into arcades and the Dreamcast ten years ago, so what’s going on now?

The keen-eyed VOOKS picked up on this last night and speculates that Sega may be readying a Wii, XBLA or PSN re-release for the cult classic. Earlier this year, Sega re-registered the trademarks for several Dreamcast titles, including ChuChu Rocket, Sonic Shuffle, Cosmic Smash, Jet Grind Radio and – yep! – Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram. My hunch is XBLA/PSN ports – or perhaps reinventions in the vein of Bionic Commando – after the poor sales performance of the Wii NiGHTS sequel. What would you like to see Sega do with these old games?

And if you have no idea what Virtual-On is, here’s some random clip of it off Youtube.
