Want Dreamcast On Your Android Device? Reicast Is The Emulator App For The Job

by John_A

reicastMany of us will have extremely fond memories of the Dreamcast video game console; while the SEGA console didn’t quite have the success of its competitors or contemporaries, it is still considered one of the best consoles of that generation, some arguably say ever. Unfortunately due to SEGA pulling the plug on the console prematurely, many of us never got a chance to play the iconic games that spawned sequels that have continued into the current gaming generation like Crazy Taxi and Shenmue. But thanks to NILLWARE and their emulator app called reicast, we may still get the chance to do so.

Reicast is on the Play Store now for free and while the concept and framework is there, the developer states in the description that the app is still in Alpha. Furthermore, it’s suggested that you have a minimum of a Cortex-A9 dual-core, or about 1GHz, before you can achieve playable performance. While it’s definitely fiddly, if you want to play some of the games that SEGA of America has yet to port over to Android, reicast looks like a viable option for the SEGA fans out there.

Are you going to download reicast and give it a go? Let us know how it goes.
