dEX Update - New Snapshots, DraculaX, and more....

Hello all!

This week at dEX, I've added pictures from AM3's Last Bronx, Hudson's Virus, and an action based RPG, Princess Crown to the Snapshots area. New for the Saturn in the US is, Arcade's Greatest Hits: The Atari Collection 1. As the title states, this CD is a collection of Atari's classic arcade games from way back when. The collection includes: Asteroids, Battlezone, Centipede, Missile Command, Super Breakout, and Tempest.

Early this week, it was announced that Sega has developed an adapter that would enable Saturn users to access the Internet via cable. The device is expected to sell for a price between 10,000 and 20,000 Yen or roughly $100-$200US. Konami of Japan has also announced plans to bring Dracula X to the Saturn! They also mentioned the possibility of making use of the RAM cart to provide extra space for more detailed animations. Konami of US has not commented on whether they will release the title in the US or not. I really hope so, as Konami has yet to publish a decent game in the US. Dracula X would sell much better than Konami's previous (and mediocre) US releases of Bottom of the 9th, Crypt Killer, and Contra: LoW.

Sega of Japan has also announced that they will be making more games that will fit into the Ages series. Games will be from old arcade and console games as recent as the early 90's. The first set to be released will probably be a Ages set with Phantasy Star 1-4. Hopefully, the four games will come on one disc. I also hope the set will be picked up for US release by WD or even SoA. I also recently learned some rather interesting facts about the Saturn and Quake. Check out the news area for the full story.

See ya!
