"Let Me Make Dreamcast 2" - Sonic Creator

No messing about, let's get straight to it: Sonic creator Yuji Naka told CVG this morning, "I'm hoping to work on Dreamcast 2".

Speaking in London during his promo tour for Ivy the Kiwi?, the Prope boss made the surprising confession that he'd like to work with one of the three platform holders as an "advisor" in the future.


I do miss those old days when I was heavily involved in hardware making at Sega," [/i]Naka told CVG. "I was involved in most of the consoles and controllers that Sega came up with.

"If I have the opportunity in the future I want to be involved again with hardware making,"
he said. "It would be ideal if I could become some sort of advisor working with the platform makers in future."

"I think if I can work really well with the platform makers then it's good for everyone, because I can then come up with totally new games."

"If Ivy the Kiwi? does well in Europe then maybe I can make Dreamcast 2 (laughs)," he joked, but with a deadly serious undertone:

"Of course Dreamcast was my baby back at Sega and I want to carry on making good games for the European market and one day I'm hoping it gives me the opportunity to work on Dreamcast 2."
Megaton. Come on then platform holders, sign him up.

Ivy the Kiwi? is set to land in the UK on October 29.

The first controller is a clone of the Xbox 360 controller while the second is a clone of a 3rd party Xbox 360 controller from Gamestop.

It's that new Sega-quality! :P

You know he could function as a pretty cool hardware designer.

He made the NiGHTS controller.
He tried making an AiR NiGHTS controller which eventually ended up as Maracas for Samba.
The NiGHTS controller was the basis for the DC controller.

He also pioneered online console gaming with Chu Chu Rocket, but does that count?
