Saito’s main aim with the game was “to keep the same as light and accessible as possible”, the result being a game where players must sort through thousands of colour coded bags, racking up combos and score multipliers.
Although I rarely travel with anything more than hand luggage myself, I’ve always secretly been fascinated by the process of luggage sorting and handling and, from the looks of it, believe that this game would perfectly fill the time spent waiting in airports for gates to be announced and then subsequently opened. Western audiences can download the game directly from the Nintendo eShop now.
Well, what has actually happened was that Yoot Saito, creator of the Dreamcast cult classic Seaman, posted a picture of the game’s titular creature dressed as Father Christmas on Twitter with the cryptic comment:
it’s time to start thinking about the end of the year
This makes little sense to all but those who took note of February’s very vague hint by Nintendo at a Seaman remake or sequel on the 3DS. So are we looking a new Seaman release this Christmas, or does Yoot Saito simply have a misunderstood sense of humour and a little too much time on his hands? Right now there’s no way to know, but let us know what you think in the comments below, and premature seasons greetings from all of the Sega Addicts staff!
Yoot Saito, the mind behind the Dreamcast-classic Seaman, is working on a new game that is going to be part of Guild 01. This project is a collaboration of several videogame producers, like Goichi Suda (No More Heroes) and Yasumi Matsuno (Vagrant Story), for Level 5 on the Nintendo 3DS. His game is a simulation where you take care of the luggage at the airport. This may sound weird, but seriously, what have you been expecting from the maker of Seaman? Anyway, one more game to look forward to on the Nintendo 3DS!
