Seaman 2 details this week

A year since the last mention.

The PS2 sequel to the Dreamcast's legendary Seaman will be unveiled in more detail later this week, according to the game's creator.

Vivarium's original was a huge success on the Dreamcast - particularly in Japan - but the developer's kept quiet about the follow-up since almost exactly a year ago when it first mentioned it.

At the time, we were told that whereas the Dreamcast original recognised single words, the sequel - with a USB microphone - will be able to react to entire sentences.

Since then, Vivarium's released Cube oddity Odama with Nintendo, and it'll be interesting to hear the developer's view on what its pals in Kyoto have been up to in the past 12 months too.

Last September, prior to Nintendo's Tokyo Game Show coming out party for the Wii controller, Vivarium president Satou Yutaka had said, "In the last 20 years there really hasn't been much advancement in the user interface of game. If we could just change the interface, I think games would get much more exciting and unique." Perhaps he's changed his mind since then.
