Wasnt the game updated with the Shenmue engine and released on Xbox in Japan, and I thought that it was also translated for North America but then never released?
Edit: oh duh, it was Rent-A-Hero No.1 on Dreamcast which was the remake of the Mega Drive version. And it apparently used the Spikeout engine. Then it was indeed later translated for the X-box.
I'd rather see a patch for an English Dreamcast version than a Genesis version.
