Yoot Saito teases 3DS Seaman
Developer responds to fan request for updated online version of virtual life sim, responds that something along those lines can be expected.
When Yoot Saito's voice-recognizing life sim Seaman debuted on the Dreamcast 10 years ago, a microphone was such an unusual peripheral that Sega had to make one specifically for the game and bundle it with every copy. Now that microphones are standard features on handheld hardware, it appears that Saito's virtual life sim might be venturing into new environs.
Last night, the developer answered a fan's question on his Twitter account and teased a new Seaman-like project in the process. A follower of Saito's expressed a desire to see Seaman swimming on Nintendo's 3DS, with some online functionality along the lines of Nintendo's Flipnote Studio built in. (Flipnote allows users to create their own digital flipbook animations and share them online.) In his reply, Saito said he couldn't go into detail but added that it would be good for people to expect something along those lines.
The original Seaman release didn't overly impress critics when it debuted, but it managed to sell more than 550,000 copies in its first six months on sale. It was later ported to the PlayStation 2, and a full-fledged sequel was made for Sony's system in 2007. Neither PS2 game saw release outside of Japan.
