A New Ecco the Dolphin Game is in Development


The Ecco the Dolphin series will be getting a new installment, according to series creator Ed Annunziata.

Quote:
Ecco fans, I need you to follow & tweethank @scottfoe, he convinced SEGA to meet with me now chances of a new Ecco the Dolphin x100!
In a second Twitter post he reveals that the music composer of the original games, Spencer Nielsen, is involved.

Quote:
Spencer is on board! (puttn' the band back together!)

I guess no one remembers:



I never played it, myself. The metacritic reviews seem like like it, or hate the controls. I remember loving the atmosphere of the original Ecoo, but finding it ridiculously difficult (Stupid fish, needs to breath air--ridiculous!) and somewhat aimless.

Never liked the Ecco games myself. But they had sick ass soundtracks I must admit.

The music, the visuals and the way they come together to generate a true, underwater experience is really unparalleled. The original, 16-bit (Even better, the Sega-CD version) Ecco blows Aquanaut's Holiday out of the water.

Yes, I just referenced an extremely obscure PSX game to make that one bad pun.

I liked and played the old Ecco games. But some things should be left in the past >_>

Haven't we learned our lesson with Syndicate? v_v

It wasn't bad on the Dreamcast, just difficult almost to the point it's a pain in the ass to bother with. Still have it.

So long as they don't make Ecco a first person shooter, I think you're point might not hold up.

That being said, I hope they don't make Ecco a first person shooter...

Meh. I played one of these but it wasn't terribly memorable.

I want a new E.V.O.

Lol

But the analogy holds, because you know the new Ecco isn't going to be a 2D sidescroller. Which means, yet again, they're gonna try to translate 2D gameplay into 3D gameplay. And probably muck it all up in the process.

As usual.

I finally played through EVO recently after a few fitful starts in the past. Game has a lot of interesting ideas, but the execution was only okay. It would've matured with a new entry.

The whole purchasing of upgrades as evolution idea could be quite interesting in a new entry. But really they just dialed it in. The level design was mediocre at best, and the music was often recycled from Final Fantasy :P

I must have missed the point of the first one. I never thought it was all that great, but it was one of the first games I ever played while young, and I didn't get far into it.
