As you may or may not know I’m a bit of a fan of SEGA as I grew up with the Mega Drive (Genesis for you American folks) and the Dreamcast remains my favourite system due to such classics as Shenmue II.
Over the years SEGA has become a shadow of its former self and the best thing’s from them now are re-releases of their classic games such as the 3D Classics for Nintendo 3DS or even completions which got me thinking is there any games left the SEGA published in the west that can’t be played on a current or last generation systems be it console or handheld in some form.
What remains well there is only a select few, I've taken a few things into account including rarity as if you're like me you sooner have the original but you might not want to pay the high value some these demand now.
Here is the Top 10 Game's SEGA need to re-release
10. Burning Rangers for Saturn
Burning Rangers is a Third Person Shooter which was released in Europe back in 1998 and was developed by Sonic Team.
The game is set in a futuristic society in which fire is one of the few major hazards remaining. The Burning Rangers are an elite group of firefighters who have been formed to help cope with such emergencies. You control one of two characters using a jet-pack to cross large gaps or reach higher areas. During the game, players will come across various fires and sudden explosions that they must put out using their weaponry. Putting out fires earns crystals which are used to teleport civilians to safety, as well as protect the player. If the player is attacked by an explosion or attack, they will drop their crystals, with the game ending if they are hit without any crystals. If the level of fire also reaches too high a level, the game will end.
9. Story of Thor 2 AKA The Legend of Oasis for Saturn
Story of Thor 2 is Action RPG which was released in Europe back in 1996 and is developed by Ancient.
The game is a prequel to Story of Thor where the warrior Ordan gives his young pupil Leon the Golden Armlet, so that he can become the Spirit King of Oasis. This can only be achieved by obtaining the loyalty of the six elemental spirits of the land, which are Dytto , Efreet, Bawu , Brass, Shade, and Airl. Leon's nemesis is the evil wizard Agito who has the Silver Armlet and threatens to destroy the land.
8. Shining the Holy Ark for Saturn
Shining the Holy Ark a Dungeon Crawler which is part of the classic Shining series released in Europe back in 1997 and developed by Sonic! Software Planning.
The game takes place in in the first-person view, with battles almost exclusively taking place in dungeons. Battles take place in a turn-based format, maintaining the first-person view but also allowing the player to view allies as they take their actions.
Three mercenaries - Arthur, Melody, and Forte - are hired by the King of Enrich to hunt down and capture a renegade ninja by the name of Rodi. The group pursues Rodi to the nearby mines where, after a brief skirmish, an unknown craft crashes through the roof. All four characters are gravely injured, but soon healed by being possessed by strange spirits. While those inhabiting Arthur, Melody and Rodi seem benevolent, Forte is occupied by an evil spirit. From here the story follows the three unwitting heroes as they fight to stop the revival of the legendary 1,000 year kingdom, which would return the world to an age of darkness
7. Otogi: Myth of Demons / Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors for Xbox
Otogi: Myth of Demons is a Hack 'n' Slasher which was released in Europe back in 2003 the Sequel came out in 2004 and developed by From Software (Yes that From Software).

Upon his departure, the seal separating the demon and human worlds was broken. Kyoto was all but levelled and a wave of demons appeared. Raikoh was almost killed by the flood of darkness, but a princess banished to the netherworld saved him and held him in a state between life and death. The princess gave him a new body in exchange for his services. She would allow him to repent for his sins as an assassin by saving the world from the demons unleashed upon it. Raikoh begins his quest to restore the seal and stop the one responsible for its collapse.
6. Magic Knight Rayearth for Saturn
Magic Knight Rayearth is a Action RPG based on the anime of the same name, it was released in North America back in 1998 and was developed by SEGA.
Throughout the game, the player controls a party of three characters. However, only one character can battle at a time; though the other two characters will follow behind the active character, they cannot attack and are unaffected by all enemy attacks and even environmental hazards. The player can instantly change the active character at any time. In essence, the three characters confront the enemies, puzzles, and assorted threats of the game in a tag-team fashion.
Fun fact this was the last Satutn game to be released in North America.
5. Soleil AKA Crusader of Centy for Mega Drive
Soleil is a Action-Adventure game which was released in Europe back in 1994 and was developed by Nextech.
It's a Zelda clone.
4. Saturn Bomberman for Saturn
Saturn Bomberman is well Bomberman which was released in Europe back in 1997 and developed by Hudson Soft.
Arguably the best version of bomberman which can be played with up to 10 player with two multi-taps and the Japanese & North American version could be played online with a 28k modem.
Also has a decent Story Mode.
3. Panzer Dragoon II Zwei for Saturn
Panzer Dragoon II Zwei is a on rails shooter released in Europe back in 1996 and was developed by Team Andromeda.
Zwei has considerably more in depth than it's predecessor with alternate routes to be taken and a dragon that evolves based on your performance.
2. Shining Force III for Saturn
Shining Force III is a Tactical RPG and is part of the Shining series, the game was released in Europe back in 1998 and is developed by Camelot.
Shining Force III takes place 20 years after The Holy Ark but unfortunately in the west we never got to finish the game as it was released in 3 parts in Japan and we only got part 1.
A complete version for the west now would be nice.
1. Panzer Dragoon Saga for Saturn
Panzer Dragoon Saga a JRPG released back in Europe back in 1998 and was developed by Team Andromeda.
Arguably the best game game on the Saturn and one of the rarest most expensive games around due to a print of only 30,000 in English and notoriously bad design of Saturn game cases most have become damaged.
The game is frequently requested to be re-released thus far the game remains a Saturn-only release. Team leader Yukio Futatsugi has also confirmed that the original source code for the game has been lost, adding further weight to the unlikelihood of a port.
