I wonder which version serves as the basis for this. It has been ported around many times, but the other games in the recent Ages lineups were mostly emulated. Have they made a model 1 emulator for this game, could it be more like a native port, or is it based on one of the various console versions? I'm curious to find out.

I knew Virtua Racing would never come to 3DS if they wanted to do a pixel perfect port .
(3DS screen resolution is too low) so it had to be for Switch.

Model 1 arcade games use 496x384 resolution, like Model 2 and Model 3.

No idea why Shenmue 1 & 2 are there since it's already out on other platforms and could come to Switch that same port.

However, I'm glad the Shining series is in the Top 5. Bring back Shining Force!

Shenmue being so high is interesting. They made a big mistake skipping the Switch with the recent HD release.

Really happy Panzer Dragoon Saga made it so high. Find someone that can emulate the shit out of it and I'll give Sega all my moneys!

Bug King in the list is Mushiking. That would require the cards so I do not see that one happening.

Shenmue being so high is interesting. They made a big mistake skipping the Switch with the recent HD release.
Except these were made by people asking SEGA for ports in general, not just people wanting stuff for this line of games.

It was also taken before Shenmue I & II was even announced I believe.

Can’t say it’s the most obscure game ever. Google Sega Genesis 3D racing game.

Its not about it being obscure, it was kinda one of those things that I thought was maybe a fever dream because I was so young at the time and it just kinda disappeared despite me being into video games and following them

Are you sure you didn't just rent or borrow it somehow? Virtua Racing only works because it has a Super FX-like enhancement chip on the cart, I can't imagine they'd manufacture demo carts with that title and others on them due to expense, same goes for bootleg multicarts. It was also on 32X, however...

Awwwwww yeah. I wouldn't mind if they could squeeze in the 32X exclusive features.
It was a pretty great home version, with new tracks and everything.

There was also a Saturn version, also with new tracks, but seem to recall there being something not quite right about it.

This is great news but the screens look oddly washed out to me. The tires should be darker and the blue skies aren't blue enough! I trust M2 though, and this game has a bunch of older ports they can pull extra content from.

I'm shocked JSR took the top spot in the poll. Never seemed like the series was appreciated all that much in Japan.

I feel like domestic merchandising is a pretty good popularity indicator in the JP market, and JSR has historically gotten practically nothing on that front. Like, one figure. That came out this year.

Oh I am down with this.

And there's no way that I'm looking at that popularity contest poll. I don't need to ruin my night.
