Going Digital: Dreamcast

It’s tough to admit, but our Dreamcasts aren’t getting any younger, and there may come a time when you need to resort to buying your SEGA games on the current gen systems. So what we’ve done here is compiled every Dreamcast game that’s available across all major digital platforms and put them on one page. As new games become available, we’ll continue to update the page so it’s always as current as possible.

If you think we’ve missed one, please let us know! The following list shows each game, when it was originally released on the Dreamcast, what platforms it’s available on today and when it was re-released. Clicking the platform links will take you to the game on the digital platform where you can purchase it.

    What you missed:
    Fatal Fury (Garou): Mark of the Wolves is available on XBLA, The original Marvel vs. Capcom is part of Marvel vs. Capcom origins on XBLA.

    Slight corrections: The first Sonic Adventure is available on XBLA. Notable changes for Soul Calibur would be the removal of the mission mode to make room for the online net code so as to comply with the XBLA size restriction at the time it was released, and there are a few small changes to Jet Set (Grind) Radio’s soundtrack due to licensing issues.

  • Kevin-N

    REZ on XBLA

  • Mike

    Great list. Thanks for putting it together.

    Found a hilarious blurb in the Sega Bass Fishing listing…lol

    SEGA Bass Fishing

    About: Third-person, survival-horror game developed by Capcom.

    …maybe I played a different version?

  • Patrick Elumba

    Hello, Great list. There are somethings you should add:

    Jet Set Radio: Also is on ios and android.

    Sonic Adventure 2: Is on steam. Its a beautiful port because it includes the sonic adventure 2 battle dlc.

    Crazy Taxi: Is also on IOS and android.

    This is a beautiful list, id love to see more of things like these for the Megadrive, etc.

    • Thanks for the kind words, Patrick. We’re definitely looking to add lists for the other platforms and have many of them built but not fully finished yet. Hopefully, we can get them finished before the year ends.

      And thanks for the other additions. We want to keep our Digital Lists always updated with the latest information, so we need readers like you to point them out to us when we need to add something!

      • Patrick Elumba

        ikaruga is now on Steam. Any chance we will see a Saturn or Genesis version of this?

  • cube_b3

    Rez PS4 can be added to the list 🙂

  • Martin Cook

    Gunbird 2 is available on iOS (and Android?) ..I have never played the original so unsure how the Port compares!

  • Martin Cook
