Nintendo has registered two trademarks in Japan that sound a heck of a lot like a certain man-faced fish from the Dreamcast days. Mysterious Partner: Legend of the Fish With A Human Face and Mysterious Pet: Legend of the Fish With A Human Face are the two terms in question, and when we hear the ter...

It's been just a few days over 10 years since Seaman first emerged from the nautilus in Japan.To mark the...

We're more than willing to give Apple's do-everything-device the benefit of the doubt if they want to try to make it a legitimate gaming platform, but when we hear a story like this, we can't help but develop a few hangups.

Oh wow, we're embarrassingly excited by this news: Yoot Saito is working on what appears to be a reworked version of Seaman 2 for the iPhone called Gabo. Though it's only headed to Japan at the moment, a worldwide release seems to be in the cards, judging from a shoddy translation of Saito's blog....

Earlier this week, we asked you, our dear readers, to discuss games you'd like to see given a spit and a polish for the DS in this age of remakes, and as usual, you came through in a big way. In fact, you gave us so many fantastic suggestions that we've decided to split our selected list into two p...

GameTrailers shows off a few brief Seaman 2 videos, our collective pick for today's video. While not yet announced for release outside of Japan, Seaman 2 taps into the risky, creative side of gaming we laud. Admittedly, those gambles don't always pay off, but when they do, they're why we play games....

Half-man. Half- ... well, this time he's just a man, albeit a very tiny one.Sega announced today a sequel to its off-beat Dreamcast pet simulator Seaman. Instead of a talking man-fish, Moscow scientists have brought to life miniature Neanderthals from the prehistoric ages. 1UP has the scoop and more...
