Ecco the Dolphin swimming his way to 3DS

The growing Sega Genesis collection on the 3DS is expanding once again, with Sega announcing a 3D edition of the original Ecco the Dolphin.

Ecco the Dolphin achievements: kill the shark!

Right, so, Ecco the Dolphin came out yesterday for Xbox Live Arcade. It is, according to some, a classic of the 16-bit era. For us (and by us I mean me), there was something truly compelling about swimming freely in the ocean and traveling through time (if you can get that far). Now, despite all thi...

Super Mario Bros. 2, Ecco 2 and Dragon Spirit run/swim/fly onto Virtual Console

In a week that is admittedly pretty light on game releases, we're willing to pretty much take anything we can get. Imagine our pleasure then to find some real quality on the Virtual Console this week. Unfortunately, as you soon see, the weapondry leaves something to be desired. Super Mario Bro...

VC Tuesday: Hey, an RPG!

This week's Japanese Virtual Console update brings something very rare to the Wii: a role-playing game. And by Capcom's Breath of Fire II is a pretty good one. Also available are a fossilized Konami classic, the sequel to one of the weirdest game concepts ever to become a mainstream hit, and a biz...

Ecco and Sonic get ESRB rating for XBLA

The ESRB recently rated both Sonic the Hedgehog (also rated for PS3) and Ecco the Dolphin for Xbox 360.
