Propeller Arena will now be released in January 2002 given last week's events in New York. Propeller Arena is an aviation action shooter release for the Dreamcast.

The following statement has been issued by Sega of America. "The game play of Propeller Arena does not deal with terrorism in any way, shape or form. However, it is possible for a determined individual to deliberately play the game in a manner that generates images similar to the those we have all seen on the news. We want to avoid any misunderstanding that might result from game play being seen or displayed out of context."

Dog fighting for the masses! Propeller Arena puts you in the cockpit of a retro-fitted prop-plane and pits you against up to five other people in vicious free-for-all or team-based aerial combat. Set in 2045, the Aviation Battle Championship is a series of nostalgic contests set
