Yoot Saito teases Twitter followers with Santa Seaman

It looks like the prospect of a 3DS Seaman game may not be that outlandish. Back in 2011, Yoot Saito said he wanted to bring Seaman 3DS. Then back in February 2012, Nikkei said Seaman could come to the 3DS along with other older IPs. Now, given that both those statements were about a year apart and there were no solid announcements in between, we figured it was just talk. Except now Saito has posted a suspicious Seaman image to Twitter.

Those who follow Saito on twitter would have seen this tweet not long ago. It had the image at the right attached to it. It also said that people should start thinking about the end of 2012 and asked if anyone knew weird Seaman like that existed. It seems to suggest that a 3DS Seaman game will show up in time for the 2012 holiday shopping season. Maybe it’ll even be Saito’s Christmas gift to the world!

If you’ve never heard of it before, Seaman was a pet simulation. Players had to raise a fish with a human face and Leonard Nimoy’s voice. Well, technically he wasn’t always a fish. One form looked a bit like a tadpole and another like a frog. Basically, you had to care and talk to him, and he’d grow, thrive and mature based on that.

This is absolutely awesome news. Seaman was a really quirky and awesome game. The only problem is, it may be too niche for an international release now. Something like this requires quite a bit of localization and while the Dreamcast release was beloved, I’m sure a lot of people have forgotten about Seaman and may not be eager to run out and pick a copy up. Let’s hope this game happens and gets released worldwide!
