According to a new rumor, SEGA will bring several Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network games to the Wii U eShop. SEGA has released many of their classic titles on the two platforms including Sonic Adventure HD, Jet Set Radio HD, Shenmue HD, and other SEGA HD remakes. The rumor comes from Emily Rogers (via Twitter), who previously was one of the first to confirm that Space Beast was coming to Wii U. SEGA will be releasing Sonic & All-Stars racing Transformed for the Wii U launch, and Aliens: Colonial Marines in early 2013. The company is also rumored to be working on Conduit 3 for the Wii U.

Sonic Wii UAs for the XBLA/PSN games SEGA could bring to the Wii U, here’s a list of some of the popular SEGA titles that could make it to the Wii U console in the future:

  • Sonic Episode 1 & 2 HD
  • Jet Set Radio HD
  • Shemune 1 & 2 HD
  • Skies of Arcadia HD
  • Virtua Fighter 5
  • Nights Into Dreams HD

    Shenmue 1 & 2 + Wii U = ………. I can’t even think of a word to describe how awesome that would be.

    • joe

      WHEN I SAW SHEMUE, i closed my eyes and reopened them to be sure I wasn’t seeing things….I can be pretty delusional, but THIS is the best piece of video game news I have heard in a long time. I would make that my first WiiU game. Then who knows??? Shenmue3 for WiiU??

    • Pachter Jr

      Mckayla Maroney’s not impressed. If they made a Shenmue 3 however, she might be swayed.

    • Kamon

      Good god that would be amazing. Shenmue 1 & 2 on the Wii U eShop might mean they are planning on bring the 3rd one to the Wii U. :]

    • ODB

      I can; “Really”.

  • Shankovich

    OMG Jet Set Radio HD gjaskjfskljfh (even though it won’t be in HD on a 3DS whatever).

    I wouldn’t mind seeing Sonic Adventure battle 1 and 2 either, even a Chao garden would be awesome too.

    • Shankovich

      Sorry I read that wwwaaaayyyy too fast, but these titles could easily make it to the 3DS as well, and Nintendo would benefit greatly from that.

    • Macarony64

      wile the jet set is great in my opinion jet grind was better hope is jet grind who is getting the hd treatment

  • Platinum Chaos

    Oh wow, I’ve never had a chance to play Shemune, so if it comes to Wii U E Shop I’ll certainly purchase a copy! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Wils81

    Emily Rogers is full of bullshit.

    • 88MilesPrower

      Sorry about your rating, not sure how it got down there. Does no one remember Emily Roger’s insane outlandish pre-E3 claims? Or is this not the same person? Believe me, these titles are my #1 hope for the console’s eShop and i’d love for this to be true. Just look at my name!

    • joe

      Yes, Milky, Shenmue….could you belive that!

      • milky


        • ODB

          Shenmue you say?

  • LordFenix

    Grandia 2, Power stone 1&2, Record of lodoss war, panzer dragoon, and phantasy star online

    Im def going to get Skies of Arcadia HD and Nights into dreams…

    • Sethlaw225

      Okay now your making pull out my Dreamcast all over again ๐Ÿ™‚

  • pdxmojo

    Getting sick of the “could be’s” “might happen’s” and rumors. Just saying.

    • Melk

      They WILL happen. Sega is knows their products sell better on Nintendo systems.

    • D2K

      Yeah, I know what you mean. It’s getting pretty late. It’s for some hard information from Nintendo about the Wii U. However ‘possibilities’ like this make the wait-time pass by more smoothly.

      • Pachter Jr.

        who the hell is disliking everything

        • joe

          kinda wondered that my self…

  • LyingTuna

    I am guessing that they will put the sonic adventure games on there, though the article didnt quite specify, though it would be logical.

    • milky

      Sorry im to blame for 1 tumb down sorry ๐Ÿ™ blame my sausage fingers

  • TheBoldman67

    I might get Sonic 4 if it’s good, but PLEASE, bring in Conduit 3!

  • Tristan

    I want all of those games.

  • Gabe Hoffman

    Jet Set Radio HD on Wii U would be great! Using the Gamepad to design and draw your own graffiti tags makes a lot of sense.

  • XDLugia

    What happened to the Conduit game coming for the 3DS?

  • Josh

    Jet Set Radio, Shenmue 1 and 2, Skies of Arcadia and Virtua Fighter? SEGA, you are awesome. It is as simple as that. I love you.

  • Egamingway

    It’s a little less than three months until the Wii U is released in North America, if it comes out November 18th that is. I’m looking forward to it.

  • milky

    Shenmue shenmue,shenmue.shenmue(shenmue).
    P.s. Shenmue!!!!!!!

  • TheBrainJemin

    This is a wierd choice, but I wanna see Moonwalker for the sega Genesis on the Wii u eshop.

    • ninjabake

      I was hoping that game would be available for the wii shop! Lol

  • Ledreppe

    I liked Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 on WiiWare, but Episode 2 was never released on Wii, so I’m hoping I can get it on the Wii U eShop soon.

  • NoPUNintendo

    Did I just see Shemune, and Jet Set Radio? IF this is true, and not just a rumor, I will buy every Sega game twice of the amount the total sum of all downloads will buy in 365 days, after all these titles are released.

  • Swic11

    I HOPE Skies of Arcadia HD comes out. This game was AMAZING for its time, and will still be amazing with today’s standards.

  • finn

    i like sonic

  • theorangefish

    Man why don’t they bring Sonic Adventure 2 (Battle) :”'( ?ยฟ

  • LibertyZero

    Virtua Fighter 5?

    Just got real, folks.

  • Whirlwindyoshi

    Skies of Arcadia HD!

  • Megaman

    Sonic Adventure 3?

  • gokuinssbros


  • Prime

    it’s all about skies in HD!!

  • Wii u crazer


  • Kris


    i wanna see Comic Zone… or a reboot..

  • PhilipHD

    Lets just put it this way.

    If this turns out to be true Sega will find me buying every bone of those games.

  • Mario Party Addict*19

    Would like to see MPs 1&2 in Nintendo Eshop, those were my favorite Mario Parties for the N64 also nintendo can’t get sued again cuz of the rubber grip on the wii u pro controller.

    also i’d like to see a sonic adventure 3, 2 was awesome loved the chao gardens ๐Ÿ™‚

  • VirtualBoy

    Just an idea for Shenmue 1 + 2 (hopefully 3 in the future) is the integration of the Wii U gamepad being used as not just the inventory, but the diary where you have the main quest notes, but you have a section to write your own notes, and could go as far as drawing your own map on a page. It could be used for a few of the mini games as well, such as but not limited to arm wrestling, darts and the game I forgot the name of but known to me as the marble dropping game. I am interested to see what they can do with these, a regular HD remake would be OK, but control change similar to Pikmin 1 + 2 re-release. Making it seem fresh and new. Well thereโ€™s my 2 cents.

    • ~(O.O~)

      Nice idea ๐Ÿ™‚

    • joe

      Your 2 cents were worth a million.
      There is so much a game like Shenmue could do with the WiiU pad…..

    • squidfist

      Its called Lucky Hit, the ball dropping game

  • nintendoododo

    sonic episode 2 was ok game so this would be good thing.

  • revolution5268

    i want to see some Dreamcast titles.

  • relo

    I would love to see space channel 5 part 1 and part 2 and hopefully see a whole new part 3

    • cyphid

      I picked up the re-releases on PS2 years ago but I found the games to be extremely difficult. Do I just suck at Rhythm games?

  • brandon

    I would really like to see really fun, innovative, quality new Skies of Arcadia games.. Or, perhaps being more realistic, an HD version of Skies of Arcadia Legends with some new content and features.. I would be a bit disappointed if they released the original Skies of Arcadia in HD instead. I really loved Skies of Arcadia’s story, and the graphics were great for a home console at the time it was released..

  • cyphid

    I bet Sega has a lot planned for WiiU; the system is better in terms of RAM. This allows developers to maintain a better visual quality in framerate and performance.

    I’ve read in several places that Sega has been finished with HD Remasters for Shenmue 1 & 2 for nearly a year. I wonder what they are planning?

  • ceramicsaturn

    Oh COME ON, everything I want except for Daytona USA? PLEASE PORT THAT GAME!
