There will be still 3 more characters (new female ninja, final ninja type, and hostage guardian).
But this is great news as the first phase of Shadow Gangs art will be done (sprite).
There still a long way ahead but we are making progress day by day.
About the Dreamcast port, I have it now rendering.
While trying to get the best visuals on the Dreamcast, I tried many methods of rendering and I think I setlled on one.
It will be a hard port, the video memory is very small especially that in Shadow Gangs it's both highres and the sprites and level are very varied with lots of animations etc...
I'll do the input output next now that I have the rendering working.
