Virtual On for PSN/XBLA: "no comment"

Much-loved Sega mech game appears in classification listing

Sega has stayed quiet over reports that much-loved Dreamcast mech sequel Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram is coming to PSN and Xbox Live Arcade.

A listing for the game, which was originally released in the late 90s on Japanese Dreamcasts and arcades, has appeared (where else?) on the Australian classification website for "multi platform" release.

Unless Sega's going to re-release the Dreamcast version then, it's probably coming to the console download services. When we picked up the phone though a Sega UK rep gave us a quick "no comment".

Virtual On, in case you've not a clue what we're on about, is a lightning fast mech fighting game played with a dual-joystick set-up.

Players use the usual array of firearms, jetpacks and hand-to-hand smacks to knock each other senseless, and this has earned the series a decent fan following.

You can see the Dreamcast game in action via this YouTube video.

We'll let you know if anything comes of this.
