Neo XYX joins the Dreamcast's library next week


Mere weeks after Redux: Dark Matters made its Dreamcast debut, yet another game is scheduled to launch for Sega's surprisingly healthy 15-year-old console. German studio NG:DEV.TEAM announced that it will release its arcade-style shoot-'em-up NEO XYX for the Dreamcast next week via its online store.

NEO XYX (pronounced "Neo Zaikusu") is a vertically scrolling shooter in the vein of Truxton, Batsugun, and other arcade standouts developed by Toaplan. NEO XYX previously launched as a homebrew release for SNK's Neo Geo console in 2013, though the upcoming Dreamcast edition will be available at a fraction of the Neo Geo version's original price.

NEO XYX will be released on February 17 in standard, limited, and collector's editions.
