Fanatical Five | Sega Saturn Games Needing an HD Remake

When you think of the great gaming consoles that have been released throughout the years, the Sega Saturn typically doesn’t come to mind. That’s why I wanted to take a look at some of the greatest games that came out for what is often referred to as Sega‘s biggest failure (from a hardware standpoint, that is). In this edition of the Fanatical Five: Sega Saturn Games Needing an HD Remake.



How often do you say the words “survival horror puzzle adventure game” when talking about this medium? Not often, I’d wager, and that’s just one of the reasons this game stands out. With a dark and moody story and some of the creepiest visuals and atmosphere I’ve ever come across in a video game, D was way ahead of its time. It got a sequel, but the first game still holds its own today, even if it is a bit on the ugly side. If only there were a way to pretty it up… OH WAIT THERE IS. Get on it, Sega.

Virtua Cop

Virtua Cop

This game was so. Much. Fun. It’s true that light-gun games have fallen away in popularity on home consoles, but Virtua Cop on the Saturn actually overcame that by allowing you to use your controller and a cursor, which in my opinion actually made the game more challenging. Fun, short, and featuring various difficulties, this game could easily bring in some sales on the Xbox Live Marketplace, PlayStation Store and Nintendo eShop… and it shouldn’t be too hard to remaster.

X-Men: Children of the Atom


Marvel and Capcom are already toying around with re-releasing their older Marvel Comics fighting games, so why not the one that started it all? The Sega Saturn version was considered superior to the PlayStation one, and those sprites still look great today, so they’d look even better in HD. Not a difficult question, if you ask me. I’d buy it.

Clockwork Knight


Let’s see… Toy Story meets Donkey Kong Country. In HD. Yeah, I think it could work.

Panzer Dragoon


Yes, I know, Crimson Dragon is coming to the Xbox One. That’s exactly why I’m thinking about its spiritual predecessor, Panzer Dragoon. It’s basically StarFox, but with dragons. I really don’t need to say anything else. We’re done here.
