Dreamcast oddity Seaman swims towards a Nintendo 3DS relaunch
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
The original Dreamcast game Seaman, which was essentially Kinectimals with a talking fish that wore a human face is to make an appearance on the 3DS
Not sure what we’re on about? Seaman was one of the Sega Dreamcast’s more ‘eccentric’ titles. It was a sort of Tamigotchi experience that put you in charge of a small, gradually evolving fish with the head and voice of a man. Oh, and it was narrated by Leonard Nimoy. Barmy.
The game was one of the few to make use of the Dreamcast’s microphone accessory, which allowed you to talk to Seaman and order him about, and that’s what Nintendo’s interested in.
Nintendo has reportedly decided to dig up some old, unique franchises from third party developers that can be force fed into the 3DS. The Sega-owned Seaman, of all things, has made the cut, which means you’ll soon be able to sit on the train and talk to your man headed fish to your heart’s content. Want to see what you’re in for?
