March ’21 Giveaway: Treasure Strike (Update: Winner Chosen!)

It’s time for another giveaway and this time I’ve got a real treasure for you! It’s a copy of the Japan-exclusive Treasure Strike! This is a game that I actually don’t own myself so I’ll be a bit jealous of the winner of this giveaway. Having not played it, I’ll try my best to explain the game from what I’ve read. Treasure Strike is sort of a Power-Stone-esque battle game where the goal is to find a specific treasure which is locked away in one of the chests that are scattered around the level. You’re not the only one looking for this treasure however, which means you’ll be fending off rival treasure hunters while you’re searching for keys and opening chests. You have various weapons at your disposal to help you fend off your foes, including guns, melee weapons, and mines. The first hunter to find the treasure wins the match.

The game sounds like a ton of fun and of course it has online multiplayer! Up to 4 players could compete online back in the day. Hopefully one day the servers will be brought back for this, but for now you can still enjoy the single player campaign and local multiplayer modes.

If you’d like to enter for a chance to win, simply leave a comment below and make sure you include a valid email address in the “Email” box. Just for fun, let me know what Japanese-exclusive Dreamcast game you would have loved a western release of. The winner will be chosen one week from today (March 17th). Good luck!

Update: The winner has been chosen! Congratulations to Chris!


  1. Man I would have loved to see a Segagaga english translation, and definitely a western release of De La Jet Set Radio cause that’s the best version of the game imo. Also definitely King of Fighters 2002.

  2. Boop!

    I definitely would’ve love to have Napple Tale or Sengoku Turb outside of Japan. If anyone here hasn’t checked it out, please do!

  3. I wish Rent A Hero got a western release, it looks like an entertaining and polished game if only we could understand what’s going on. That, and Roommania.

  4. Kind of like Powerstone?? Yes please! You rock as always on your giveaways! Thanks as always for what you do for the community!

  5. Dude! Power Stone with Online Play would have been so cool! As for games I would have loved for SGGG – Segagaga and Cosmic Smash. Cosmic Smash doesn’t really need to be translated, but I would have liked it as a kid. It’s a kind of Rez like racquetball breakout game. I just want a western release of Segagaga so it can be played in English.

  6. Back around the time of the Dreamcast’s hayday I was super into Dance Dance Revolution at the arcades (I didn’t live near one, so rare I got the opportunity to play it). Japan got a number of DDR exclusives, would have been nice to have them with the appropriate accessory of course!

  7. The winner will be chosen one week from today (March 17th). Good luck! When I was younger, I would have loved, and I mean absolutely loved, Fire Pro Wrestling D to have an English release. So much sprite goodness.

  8. this game looks quite interesting! as for a dreamcast game I would love to see a western release of… absolutely the game Cool Cool Toon! Also Segagaga, of course.

  9. I would have loved to have seen something like the kapitel series for western audiences, or one of my favorites: tokyo bus guide but you’re in england driving a red double decker!

    Have read about this game but never had a chance play!

  10. My heart yearns for a SGGG translation – haphazardly holding a phone and using Google Translate just doesn’t make for an immersive experience!

  11. Maybe its sounds a lil bit stupid, but Tokyo Bus Guide was so nice for a time, it was a crazy time and a cool Game!

  12. I would have loved to see Western releases of SEGA GAGA (SGGG) and RENT A HERO No. 1, two fantastic games I can’t fully enjoy without a translation.

    I loved the piece of character art from TREASURE STRIKE that you tweeted the other day and would love to play this game. Such a cool art style. Thank you.

  13. Never heard of this game. Sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

    As for the game, Virtual On in PAL territories (with the twin stick) would have been nice. For a game that did not leave Japan at all, Under Defeat.

  14. This interests me, but only if there is an included OBI spine card. If not, someone else can have it!

    That said, for me, taking into consideration all of the games that would eventually see ports on other home consoles in North America, it has to be Border Down. Even more so than that though, of all of the shmups on the Dreamcast, it’s the only official STG that would never see release to another platform, even in Japan.

  15. Hello there, would like to participate.
    As for what games I would’ve like in my PAL territory, well, I honestly don’t know enough the Dreamcast library to decide, but probably any cool story driven game that are just locked due to the language barrier.
