That is false. The last official Dreamcast title was Trizeal, which was released in 2005 by Taito and Triangle Service.

That is false. Karous came out in 2007, and unofficially, games are indeed still being developed for Dreamcast. For example:

If the game isn't officially licensed then I have little interest in it for collectors sake.

If someone could make a game and get a license for it to be "official" now that would be an achievement and worthy investment.

Any shmo can program for the SNES and get enough orders to make a cart. Big whoop. Plus, the game was in development hell for a reason it seems.

I'm not trying to be a butthead or pessimist but seriously, things like this need gallons of cold water dumped on them to bring people back down to reality.

If it's still your thing, power to you. Two opinions were born then.

Someone made a new SNES game. Cool, I guess. Other than that, ummm, meh.

It wasn't in development hell. The game was completed (or at least was very near completion) back in the mid 90s by Arcade Zone, a french game developer. From what I read, it seems the original publisher backed out and they couldn't get a new one, so the game was canceled. A prototype was leaked onto the internet years ago and there are already repros/bootlegs out there.

Super Fighter Team recently got the rights from the current IP holder to produce copies, so in a sense, it is an official release. In addition, it's not going to be the same as the one floating around the internet. As far I know, they haven't received approval from Nintendo though.

Looks like any number of games that ended up in the bargain bin in the SNES' hayday. Big pass for me.

Where Pier Solar looks so awesome.. this just doesn't...

Maybe I'm missing but Pier Solar looks like a labor of love, where this just kind of feels like a cash grab after Pier Solar and the few other new console games have generated a lot of buzz and cost a pretty penny on the secondary market.

No it isn't and don't give anyone the wrong idea. This game was originally being developed in one of those black market countries (Thailand, Taiwan, whatever) who didn't officially have the SNES in their market, now a bunch of guys who take advantage of people who want their retro fix "gain the rights" to it and are doing essentially what this guy does.

If they actually bothered to approach Nintendo and get this-

THEN it would be worth it because they actually put effort towards this release. Hell, they could have done that for Beggar Prince with SEGA because SEGA throws the SEGA seal at products like it's nothing these days.

Interesting that a new SNES game is coming out. I guess the collectors that want every game will buy this. It doesn't look like something worth playing.

It's not an official product and just homebrew. Anyone who wants this is an idiot.

It's kinda unfair to call this a cash grab after Pier Solar since Super Fighter Team released two Sega Genesis games (both of which were RPGs) before Pier Solar was released. They also announced they were publishing Nightmare Busters before Pier Solar was released.

I would agree that Pier Solar seems to be a labor of love though. It was a brand new game made from scratch, developed and published by Watermelon. SFT wasn't the original developer of any of their Genesis games or even Nightmare Busters.

Please reread my entire post. I already pointed out that, as far as I know, they haven't received approval from Nintendo (I recall someone asking if the contacted Nintendo in another forum and SFT's response was "no comment"). However, they did get the rights to produce copies from the current IP holder. The producer of repro carts you linked to did not do this. I have no idea why you're insisting it's a homebrew made in a "black market country" that you're not even sure the name of. It was made in the mid 90s by Arcade Zone. Arcade Zone made 2 other SNES games, Legend and Iron Commando. Nightmare Busters was even mentioned in volume 68 of Nintendo Power magazine! If it hadn't been for the publisher backing out, I see no reason why it would not have been approved by Nintendo, if it had not already been approved (of course, I highly doubt Nintendo would approve it now).

Glad I bought this and they sold out. A collector just PayPal'd me $300 for my copy (which cost me $68) After some PP fees, a nice $220+ profit!!!!!

Wow. You'd think that anyone willing to pay $300 for this would've been on top of the preorder to begin with.

Yep. I emailed them and had the address changed to his, so they will ship it to him as if he paid them directly, they were very helpful. He was was stationed in Iraq at the time of pre-orders and missed out. He was determined to get one in the first run and I was lucky to see his post on another site. I have seen pics of his SNES collection. Pretty sure he said he owns every game made, most still unwrapped. To each his own I guess...
