Dreamcast game Seaman being revived on 3DS

Nintendo splashing out on old franchises.

Oddball Dreamcast game Seaman is being revived for release on 3DS, a Japanese newspaper report has revealed.

Seaman, which tasks players with caring for a curious fish-beast pet, will be the first of several old franchises from third-party publishers that Nintendo wants revived for 3DS, according to Nikkei (via Andriasang).

No word was given on whether this means the fresh Seaman will be a remake or a sequel.

Hi there.

Released on Dreamcast in 1999, bizarre creature care sim Seaman stars an odd-looking fish with a man's head.

Players interacted with their aquatic friend via the rarely-used Dreamcast microphone. The game was narrated by Leonard "Spock" Nimoy.

Seaman creator Yoot Saito went on to create the microphone-controlled pinball/real-time strategy Odama for GameCube, which was possibly just as weird.
