Way back in September of 2006, we ran a brief series called "That Should Be on XBLA
." In that series, we suggested old games that would make a great addition to Xbox Live Arcade
. One such game was Capcom's neglected Dreamcast fighter, Power Stone
. Earlier this week, Microsoft announced not one, but two Dreamcast games that would be making their way to XBLA, namely Rez and Ikaruga
. This got the folks over at The Xbox Domain thinking. If they can stick those Dreamcast classics on Xbox 360, why not Power Stone
(or even better, Power Stone 2
)? Just to satisfy their curiosity, The Xbox Domain contacted Capcom about the idea, and received this disheartening response:
"We have not made any announcements about a Power Stone
game, but thanks for your interest."
While the comment was followed by a smiley face, we aren't smiling. Still, it's not an outright "no," and that gives fans something to hope for, right?
