A New Ecco the Dolphin Game May Be on the Way

Everyone's favorite time travelling dolphin could be coming back. Not everyone's favorite dolphin though, that's Darwin from seaQuest DSV. Obviously.

If you were a Sega fan back in the day, you probably remember 'Ecco the Dolphin.' The game was vastly different from the rest of the market and was, well, surprisingly terrifying. It's also coming back, if creator Ed Annunziata has anything to say about it. He's meeting with Sega to discuss the future of the franchise.

This sounds like more than just a digital release of old games too, as Annunziata has enlisted the help of Ecco composer Spenser Nilson to assist. Annunziata says that now that he's been able to secure a meeting with Sega, "chances of a new Ecco the Dolphin x100!" We're going to go ahead and call that a good thing.
