Snuck out of Famitsu Weekly:

Quote
It's true. Sega is bringing Virtual On Oratorio Tangram, its hardcore arcade mech fighting game, to Xbox Live Arcade. The re-release has been officially announced in the latest issue of Japan's Famitsu Weekly.

The Xbox 360 release will be Cyber Troopers Virtual On Oratorio Tangram version 5.66, the final release for Sega's NAOMI arcade platform, released in 2000. The Xbox Live Arcade release, slated for April, has already been priced at 1200 Microsoft Points according to the mag.

Hopefully, the official announcement of VOOT means that more of Sega's Dreamcast and NAOMI titles are en route. After all, Sega registered the trademark for Virtual On Oratorio Tangram in December, alongside a slew of other Dreamcast era games over the past six months.

I LOVED Virtual On, and the dual stick design of any of the recent consoles is a near-perfect way to play it (although I love the twin-stick design of the arcade game).

I was excited about this, too.  I'm hoping it leads to a trend that eventually brings us Powerstone 1 & 2.

Cyber Troopers Virtual On Oratorio Tangram version 5.66

Now, that's the way to name a video game.

And SEGA has more or less confirmed that this is coming to the US with 'enhanced graphics':

Quote
Sega America has confirmed a US release for Japan's previously announced XBLA remake of Virtual On Oratorio Tangram. The game is set to be available Stateside during a very broad "spring 2009" launch window.

Like the upcoming OutRun Online Arcade, the one-on-one arena fighting game is getting a bump up to HD resolution, which suits its minimalistic -- dare we say "virtual reality" -- art style quite well (as can be seen in newly delivered screens). Achievements, in-match voice chat and challenge modes are also confirmed. We've contacted Sega to try and narrow the release date for this 15-"Virtuoid" throwdown.

I am SO buying this.

I have the Japanese import for Dreamcast, but had neglected to purchase two sets of twin-stick controllers. doh. on the bright side, that's $300 better spent elsewhere...
