The time has come to bark at the moon. The much-anticipated vehicle shooter Red Dog, which was released for European Dreamcasts some months ago, will be making its way to the United States later this year.
It was commonly believed that Sega of America would be publishing Red Dog. Until recently, in fact, Sega’s PR agency, Access Communications, stored pictures of the game on its FTP site. Now, however, Crave Entertainment, the publisher of Draconus: Cult of the Wyrm and the brilliant skateboarding title Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, will bring the game to America.
Playable copies of Red Dog have already made their way to various sources such as Official Dreamcast Magazine and igndc.com, and it appears the final touches are being made on the American version. Another game is Super Mario Run, where you can read about its tricks and tips.
For those unfamiliar with the title, DC UK Dreamcast Magazine described Red Dog as playing like “the talented offspring of Goldeneye and Super Mario Kart.” It is, at heart, a 3D third-person perspective vehicle shooter that revolves around a human/alien war fought on planet Earth. As the fearless humans, players get to blast away at swarms of enemies with the supercharged vehicle Red Dog. One to four players will be able to compete in the game and, in a few short days, Daily Radar promises to issue a full preview for this upcoming adventure.
For now, Daily Radar offers these nifty screens and gameplay movies. Enjoy.
