US Launch Titles

At the announcement of Pulse's DC title UnderCover in Tokyo, Sega vicepresident Tadahiko Hirose shed a little official light on the US launch of the system.

He mentioned an enhanced Virtua Fighter 3tb, Sega Rally 2 and Sonic Adventures would all be launch titles. While this is no surprise to anyone, it is interesting for a few reasons. While we were sure that these games would come here, there was no guarantee they'd be improved over their Japanese versions. Now it sounds like a sure thing that VF3tb will at least get a vs. mode and possibly more. Sonic should also have its minor camera and collision detection problems taken care of.

Also, it is a bit surprising that Sega of Japan would just blurt this out while Sega of America has been trying to keep a tight lid on everything. If the two could ever figure out how to communicate with each other Sega would be in a much better position on both shores.
