In yet another “Japan is awesome” bit of news, we hear that something really cool and retro is heading for the Nintendo 3DS. Fans of the Sega Dreamcast will be pleased to hear that a new theme, based around Sega’s console, is headed to the 3DS.
The theme has awesome effects like the sound of the spinning drive, the beeping VMU and even the spinning fan. Like all good things, you need to have a Japanese 3DS and access to the Japanese eShop to download this. But fingers crossed that maybe sometime in the future, it makes its way to the West as well.
Crossovers in games are nothing new, especially when you’re talking about Samurai & Dragons which features more crossovers than you can poke a stick at. From Bayonetta, monsters from Soul Sacrifice and even Sonic the Hedgehog, there’s something in there for everyone.
Now, the artist behind Vocaloid Hatsune Miku, has lent his artistic skill to the game as well. Artist, Kei, has managed to convert the Sega Dreamcast and its memory card, the VMU, into mascot characters for the game, Hyperdimension Neptunia. During the Samurai & Dragons meeting scheduled for 2013, the UC Dreamcast, UC Visual Memory Unit and two more cards will be handed out.
The event is pencilled in fo June 2nd. To top it all off, 4 lucky attendees will also be walking away with a WI-Fi PS Vita model, the Deluxe pack of Samurai & Dragons and a case of 24 Red Bulls for the long gaming session that awaits you.
