First new DC game of 2018 - Ghost Blade! (again!)


Breaking news (ok, month old news that I just found out about) that is sure to make our very own Ross jump for joy. We have a release date for the first Dreamcast release of 2018, and it will be another in JoshProd's series of US/J-NTSC style reprints. Ghost Blade will be available to own again on March 23rd 2018.

Video Games New York is taking pre-orders now, and the effort they have gone to create promotional material and the lack of pre-orders at other online stores suggests that it might be an exclusive release for the store (maybe?).



In any case, if you don't yet have Ghost Blade in your collection, or if you have a pathological need to own every reprint and version of every indie dreamcast game, then get your pre-orders in now.

P.S. I had trouble pre-ordering to an Australian address, so not sure whether Video Games New York ships outside of the USA, but feel free to give it a shot (or, like me, use a parcel forwarding service).

P.P.S. They are currently offering free (USA?) shipping with the code "Dreamcast2018" which is very nice.

Isn't this more expensive than the original release?

40 Winks will be another game to add to DC in 2018 if they reach their 200k stretch goal on Kickstarter. Just got an email update today!

What tacky artwork they choose. The original was all neon and cool.

I can clarify this release is NOT exclusive to VGNY. We will be stocking it at The Bit Station as well. If your interested in picking up a copy, we ship internationally!
