The remake features improved HD visuals and a 16:9 aspect ratio, as well as online leaderboards and support for achievements and trophies.
It appears to be based on the game's PlayStation 2 port, which was never released outside of Japan. The original unaltered Sega Saturn version will also be included with the remake for fans to also experience the game how it first appeared in 1996.
Sega has increasingly been dipping into its Dreamcast library to produce HD ports for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC. Past HD releases have included Sonic Adventure, Crazy Taxi, Space Channel 5: Part 2, Sega Bass Fishing, with Jet Set Radio also coming up later this summer.
