Space Channel 5 Part 2, Sega Bass Fishing coming to XBLA and PSN 'late summer'


Before the launch of the Dreamcast Collection -- which somehow discovered commonality between Sonic Adventure, Sega Bass Fishing, Space Channel 5 Part 2 and Crazy Taxi -- Sega had announced plans to release Space Channel 5 Part 2 and Sega Bass Fishing via Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. Despite missing the "early 2011" release window, Sega tells Joystiq that the rhythm 'n' reeling pair will still become available as downloadable games at a later stage.

"Space Channel 5 Part 2 and SEGA Bass Fishing are definitely coming to XBLA and PSN, look for them sometime in late summer," Sega brand manager Ben Harborne told us.

Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi are already available on both services for $10 each, and all four games can be bought individually on Steam for $8.99 apiece. The Dreamcast Collection disc is only available on Xbox 360, so PS3 owners will have to hang on until summer. (If you're really desperate and have a backwards-compatible system or a PS2 handy, you could try to track down the Agetec-published Space Channel 5: Special Edition.)
