Dreamcast classic ChuChu Rocket! is getting a sequel

meow meow meow meow meow meow

Iconic Sega Dreamcast game ChuChu Rocket! (ranked 20th on our 2016 Top 200 games poll) is getting a sequel we learned today, via a stealth announcement from Sega.

We say stealth announcement - there had been murmurings of speculation, however, we will forgive you for missing it, as the new game - which is titled ChuChu Rocket Universe,  is only heading to Apple Arcade. Which I will admit I had never even heard of before this mornings news. So when I say forgive you, I mean forgive me obviously. Anway!

As Dreamcast zealots, any Dreamcast news is gobbled down. And whilst many were quick to express their disappointment the game wasn't hitting 'traditional' platforms. I for once showed some admittedly rare restraint and am instead adopting a wait and see approach, as if nothing else, any news or evidence that Sega is looking to their Dreamcast library, is quite frankly great news.

In the meantime, if you are hankering for some ChuChu style fun, then you could do worse than checking out the clearly inspired by ChuChu Rocket - BlobCat - that we covered previously on the site here.

The announcement tweet and video can be watched here

Apple Arcade isn't set to launch till later in the month, so let us know your thoughts in the comments and if this changes your mind or gave you pause for thought.
