Blind Spot’s Next Album Releases March 6th, Includes Arrangements of Bonanza Bros, Space Channel 5 and More

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021

Blind Spot, the band comprised of former SEGA Sound Team Band members and who we’ve covered on Driven in the past, are back with a new album; Blind Spot V. As the name suggests, it’s their 5th main album, and it brings with it a slew of both original tracks and rearrangements of classic, and often underrated SEGA music.

The full tracklist is as follows, via BEEP:

01 Bonanza Bros(ボナンザブラザーズ)
02 Outride a Crisis(スーパーハングオン)
03 Ooimachi Blues
04 Jyuouki(獣王記)
05 Parallel Spokes
06 OPA-OPA(ファンタジーゾーン)
07 Hakone Party
08 NervePaint10
09 Eventide
10 Super MonacoGP(スーパーモナコGP)
11 This Is My Happiness(スペースチャンネル5)

One of the highlights of these albums is seeing the band get to cover SEGA tracks that they didn’t get to during their original tenure as the S.S.T. Band; the previous album included a cover of Dreams Dreams from NiGHTS… into Dreams, and this time around we’re getting a cover of This Is My Happiness, from Space Channel 5. The new tracks such as Parallel Spokes also sound absolutely sublime!

The album will debut at the Tokyo Game Music Show as usual, but it’s also available for mail order via BEEP. All of Blind Spot’s previous albums have also appeared on Spotify eventually, so if import fees have you worried, a digital option shouldn’t be too far off.

Space Channel 5 VR Set for Japanese PS4 Release

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

The previously arcade exclusive Space Channel 5 VR: Kinda Funky News Flash is now coming to PS4 in Japan. There is currently no word on a Western release or even a solid release date, but a new trailer has gone live and showcases the game in action:

Space Channel 5 VR: Kinda Funky News Flash is essentially a remake of the 1999 Dreamcast original, but now with a first person, VR perspective and added motion controls.

Space Channel 5 VR: Arataka Dancing Show releasing for HTC Vive in Spring 2018

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

SEGA and development company Grounding have announced Space Channel 5 VR: Arataka Dancing Show will be getting a digital release for the HTC Vive in Spring 2018. There’s currently no word of an international release or pricing, but we do know the game will be available for public demoing at the Makuhari Messe in Japan later this month. The digital release will seemingly be based on this demo, so it’ll probably be more geared towards showing a concept than being a fully fledged game.

The demo sees you dancing with Ulala to defeat the Morolians, much like the original Dreamcast title; but now in VR! This is a different project to “Space Channel 5: Ukiuki Viewing Show”, demonstrated at TGS a couple of years ago, as in that, you were more of a spectator than an active participant in the grooving.

It’s nice to see another SEGA franchise making a return, and in a rather interesting way – if an international release falls into place, we’ll let you know.
