Sega Announces a Return to Consoles With the Dreamcast 2, Codenamed Saisei

Sega Announces a Return to Consoles With the Dreamcast 2, Codenamed Saisei

April 1, 2013
About The Games, Eye Candy, LOL, News, Rumor Robot


In a stunning announcement today, Sega has decided to finally throw their hat back in the race for Console supremacy.  Said to be more powerful than the PS4 it can run multiple tv’s throughout your home, all broadcast at 4k resolution, uses a hotswapable SSD bay, and will include 5 brand new Sonic the Hedgehog games at launch (including 2 first person freerunner style view games).   Sega Japan CEO Hajime Satomi said in an interview, “We feel that we know that the public REALLY wants now and this is the culmination of 12 years of R&D.”  More information as this story develops.


There seems to be some confusion about this article still.  Just to clarify everything, this was an April Fools joke, notice the LOL and the publish date in the below picture.



The picture used at the top was found on the internet as an artist rendering of what they want the console to look like and the same guy even made a Youtube video.

All of this is fake!  I wish I could say “I’m sorry” for crushing your dreams but this probably the best April Fool’s prank that I’ve ever played.  Special thanks to Chris for coming up with the idea 🙂

        People are still searching for it quite heavily, its been one of the better jokes if you ask me. Just proves how much people loved the Dreamcast.

            Rumors are super fun dude, but Sega may make hardware however I doubt it will be released as a new “Sega” console, they will probably just sell their tech to the other guys…of course that is only if all these rumors have anything to stand on.

          This is just a bunch of Xbox and Playstation fanboys. They know just as well as I do that both systems SUCK and if something else competes with it, it’ll outmuscle both systems. If it’s not the dreamcast 2, Valve corporation is releasing the Steam Machine sometime in 2015. it’s basically a PC but for your TV, which PC is better than PS$ and Xbox One anyway. Seriously, anything will beat that crap.

      I just tried this out and it’s amazing!!! so powerful, My uncle works for SEGA and we tested it for over two months. Trust me it does it all. There is even a new fishing rod that is so sensitive you feel the lightest hits. Bass Fishing IV is so real it feels like you are on the lake you even feel the wake of passing boats. Best system out there in my opinion.

      Hate to break it to you but Sega, long ago, stated that they are out of the console biz. However the popularity of the Dreamcast is still shown in how many people wish for the Dreamcast 2 to be real. Alas, it is not, April fools.

          Happens every year man, a new rumor, a new guess that they may get back into it. Only time will tell. However, there is definitely an outcry for a new system so who knows. haha

        plus sega does not have the money to make a new console. they take research and not just comparing processors

      Because drawing a picture using a computer is so incredibly difficult…

      the pad alone looks like a flattened xbox controller with different colours. Don’t believe everything you read online kids.

    This is 100% an April fools joke! Trust me, I wrote the article. The image used is a mockup made by someone else who desperately wants to see a new Dreamcast like we do. I must say that this is the most evil April fools prank I’ve ever played.

      I saw a trailer for this today.. Though I saw that the controller looked similar to that of the xbox360 controller, I still had faith…. Thanks scrub ;~;

    Haha, haven’t purchased a console since the ps2 came out. If sega comes back into the hardware business, I’ll most likely buy the console in a heartbeat. Nonetheless, i guess people didnt pick up the fact that this article was published April, 1. I bet these are the same people who believed sheng long was real back when egm claim to have unlocked him with their near impossiable trick.

      Yes, this is 100% an April fools joke. However it does show that there are still people out there who dream of a DreamCast 2 haha. And I totally unlocked Sheng Long myself back in the day ;p

    EA Sports turning their back on Sega is why I only play Xbox now. Sony feared competition from the Dreamcast back then, and they can still suck it. I don’t miss Madden, I’d rather play the NES version of Tecmo Super Bowl on my PC with updated rosters.

      Yes EA sports did not support the DC, but I’m not entirely sure what that has to do with Sony…Also all Madden games are available on the xbox…

    Someone who is in the industry spoke with Sega CEO Hajime Satomi regarding the release of a new sega console. And he didn’t respond with a confirmation or denial. Which we all know business as usual is to deny somethings existence, just before announcing it. But what he did say was if you are a fan os the sega console and are planning on living in a world with no sega consoles, you might find yourself pleasantly surprised. Then he added long live Phoenix Enfuego. Assumptions at this point are that Phoenix Enfuego is a working title much like the sega dream casts working title was the black belt and Xbox One working title was Durango. If so then this console would indeed be a Phoenix rising from its ashes.

      Indeed, with the Xbone and WiiU not performing as well as hoped, this may be the generation we see the DC2 rise up. However I still highly doubt it. Best wishes however, haha.
