Microsoft announced that the Windows CE Toolkit for the Sega Dreamcast is now available to licensed Sega Dreamcast developers. The Windows CE Toolkit for Dreamcast provides a full-featured development environment including optimized DirectX libraries for 3D graphics, sound and input, as well as built-in communications support designed to provide Internet access and networked multiplayer gaming. "The Windows CE Toolkit for Dreamcast delivers Windows CE operating system services and optimized DirectX libraries designed to take creative and technical advances in video games to entirely new levels," said Ted Kummert, general manager, Windows CE home products group, Microsoft. "The recent release of Sega Rally 2 in Japan proves that Windows CE is delivering on our promise to enable compelling new console gaming experiences." Sega Rally 2, developed by Sega Enterprises with Windows CE and the DirectX API, has been the number one title for Dreamcast since its release on January 28, and is the first and only multiplayer networked title released on Dreamcast in Japan so far. The Windows CE Toolkit for Dreamcast is designed to work with Dreamcast hardware development systems, which are available to developers under license from Sega Enterprises.
