Sega is continuing to re-trademark its old Dreamcast games, furthering the rumours and speculation. This time, 18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker and Rez have been re-trademarked, joining the ever-growing list of games recently renewed.
Dreamcast games previously renewed are ChuChu Rocket, Sonic Shuffle, Virtual-On, Jet Set Radio and Cosmic Smash. Many Mega Drive games have received the same treatment, despite some appearing on the upcoming compilation disc Mega Drive Ultimate Collection.
As with every other time a Sega game is re-trademarked, rumours have been flying about suggesting a Dreamcast compilation or downloadable versions for the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. The latter is becoming increasingly unlikely as Rez is all ready available as a download title.
There is of course the boring explanation of protecting intellectual property, but let's just hope the game are going to be part of a compilation. Along with some Saturn and 32X games. And arcade games. Yes.
