Dux released on Dreamcast

The latest Dreamcast game to be released is the h-scroller Dux. It was originally slated for release in November 2008, but it was actually completed yesterday and is now available for pre-order.

Initially, two versions were available for pre-order - a Limited Edition and a Regular Edition. The former has now sold out, leaving just the Regular Edition, which is available for $27.90 (£18).

Every pre-order comes with a sticker, poster and a soundtrack. The pre-orders are set to be dispatched in two weeks.

Here is a list of the final game's features:
  • 6 stages filled with space alien scum and threats
  • 3 upgradeable weapon types
  • Upgradeable force device
  • Multiple checkpoints within each stage
  • Super smooth high-resolution CGI visuals
  • Up to 3 loops with different difficulties
  • Risk & Reward scoring system
  • VGA support
  • Region Free
Another new Dreamcast game is available too, called Wind and Water: Puzzle Battles. The puzzle game, released last year, can be bought here.

Despite the Dreamcast being dropped in the West in 2002, there has still been continuous development for the console. There hasn't been a year since its launch where no new games have been released, meaning there's still life in it yet!
