Eons ago the Japanese N64 game, Ogre Battle 64, was announced for a release here in the states. Much has plagued this title's journey such as unexpectedly switching hands to a different company, now as if it couldn't get any worse, Ogre Battle has been delayed until August. N64 owners will have to wait longer still to get anything that resembles an RPG on their console. Unless of course Quest 64 counts...

In the ongoing zaniness that is Sakura Taisen, you may have been lost amid the sea of recent spinoff titles that have emerged, like Hanagumi Taisen Columns 2 and the upcoming game based on the drama show. Well at last Sega has announced a real game in the series with the release of the original Sakura Taisen remake for the Dreamcast. Packed in a 2 GD ROM set for 5,800 yen, May 25 marks the day you can enjoy the hanagumi's adventures for the first time, or relive them again in crisper bliss.

For the two or three of you out there that follow this company, NEC Interchannel has announced several new projects they are working on for the Playstation and a few for the Dreamcast. The most notable being the strategy RPG Black Matrix, which is now jumping over to the PSX after its Saturn debut and Dreamcast enhanced version.
