When I was in sixth grade, my best friend at the time penned a short story for a school assignment that was titled “The Video Game That Sucked Me Into It.” We did not have the lingo of “self-insert fanfiction” or “Mary Sue” at the time—I’m pretty sure neither of us even had an America Online account at this point—but…
That previously announced Space Channel 5 VR game is headed to the PlayStation 4 in Japan. No word yet on a release date. [Correction 10:07 AM— This post originally read ‘PlayStation 5.’ This was, alas, a typo.]
Hey there, space cats! Space Channel 5 VR is getting a download release this year in Japan. It will be based on the demo and is headed to the Vive. Pricing is TBA and no word about an international release.
Good Smile Company are going back to the Dreamcast days for a couple of upcoming figmas, with two figures based on Space Channel 5's Ulala.
Tetsuya Mizuguchi of Rez and Lumines fame is working on a new puzzle game. 4Gamer says it's for smartphones, while Insider says the platform hasn't been announced. The title is TBA, but the game will have a "mysterious story" and is slated for this winter. Currently, there are negotiations for a global distributor.
Before you go losing your shit now, know that this is a custom action figure, not something you can buy. Yeah, I know. Sadness.
Artist Jake Kazdal has been working in the video game industry for around 15 years now, for companies like Electronic Arts, Zombie VR and Big Boss.
Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the developer behind Space Channel 5, Lumines, and Rez—and its upcoming spiritual sequel Child of Eden—joined the long list of smart, creative types who can boast of having their own TED talk. What does Mizuguchi think is an "idea worth spreading"?
Sega is once again putting music to vinyl, following up on the bright blue Sega Genesis Collection soundtrack on LP with one for the Dreamcast fans out there. And by "there," I regretfully mean "Australia."
Space Channel 5 is a Dreamcast (and PS2) rhythm action game that had you controlling a sassy reporter through a series of dance-offs. It has absolutely nothing to do with multiplayer shooter Team Fortress 2. Until now.
As expected, Sega revealed today that a collection of old Dreamcast games will be released for the Xbox 360 and PC. And as you'd expect from such a collection, it's a little disappointing.

One year ago today I started officially blogging for Kotaku. What better way to celebrate this anniversary than by ticking off a list of journalists that appear in video games?
Amazing. Currently up for auction is this 2003 set of Hot Wheels toy cars. Boring, right? No. No small metal car with Jet Set Radio emblazoned on it is ever boring.
Oh dear. You've gone and done it, Sega. You've gone and done the one thing you needed to do to get us interested in Samba De Amigo again. You brought in a Space Channel Stage, with an Ulala cameo. Ulala and monkeys and (simulated) maracas? It's like a Dreamcast reunion party. You know how to get a man mildly excited,…
Remakes are all the rage these days! Whether it's literally remaking a classic, or just putting out "reimaginings" of long-running franchises, we can't get enough of the good old stuff. By re-releasing Rez on XBLA, you'd think Q's Tetsuya Mizuguchi would be big on the idea of remaking more of his classic titles,…
