The Dreamcast is about to be hit by tons of quality arcade ports, mostly thanks to its arcade brother Naomi. Take a look at images from a few new Naomi titles:

Dead or Alive 2

This has to be one of the best looking games I've ever seen... absolutely stunning. Now that we know it is for certain only running on one Naomi board we can all start celebrating because there will be an exact port to the Dreamcast, and it will almost certainly be released for home users mere months after it's arcade debue. In case you hadn't heard, this game has it all... including tag-team modes (4 characters on screen at once, all looking this good?? wow) and multiple battlefields (dropping down a waterfall to a lower level and fighting there).

Crazy Taxi

This title is in development by the same team who developed Top Skater. You are a cab driver who picks up "fares" and takes them to their destination.... scare them and you get bonus points... but don't send them flying out of the car, definite bad idea there. Sega has also worked in some deals with companies such as KFC, Pizza Hut, and Levi's so that we will be seeing realistic buildings as we cruise town (as seen in the shots below).

Also don't forget the just released Powerstone by Capcom and House of the Dead 2, which is on its way from Sega. Both of these titles are also ported over from Naomi hardware.
