Report: Seaman to be Ported to 3DS
The critically acclaimed yet underrated Dreamcast title, Seaman, is reportedly in the works for the Nintendo 3DS according to one insider.
The adventure, utterly bizarre title was hinted as a 3DS title when Nintendo spoke about reviving past publishers titles as a new strategy for the the handheld system. Though no specifics were mentioned, Nintendo used Seaman as an example during the report.
This would not be the first time a 3DS port has been mentioned for Seaman. In 2010, Seaman creator Yoot Saito hinted in an interview that gamers could see the title become a part of the 3DS library in the near future.
For those who are not familiar with Seaman, basically it’s an adventure title where players go through a fish’s life stages from egg to adult fish. Players take care of the fish throughout its life with the help from narrator Leonard Nimoy (oddly playing himself). The one notable feature that the specimen have a fish’s body, but a human face, making the game truly frightening.
Though the title was barely played by American audiences, the game ended up being one of the top selling Dreamcast games of all time in Japan.
