Description

Hey there, Space Cats! Some pesky little aliens called Morolians are trying to take over Earth, and they're forcing the population to dance endlessly! Space Channel 5, the planet's news channel, has sent the grooviest reporter they have, Ulala, out to cover the latest happenings, but those little Morolians also have to be taught a lesson! So it's now up to Ulala to dance and groove with the aliens to beat them at their own game and free the population of Earth! Get dancin', Space Cats, 'cuz we're gonna give those aliens a little taste of their own groove!

Trivia

1001 Video Games

The Dreamcast version of Space Channel 5 appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Michael Jackson

Towards the end of the game, Ulala encounters a character named Space Michael, who is actually (and obviously) none other than Michael Jackson. And speaking of Jacko, he also teamed with Sega in the early 90s to produce a Sega Genesis game called Michael Jackson's Moonwalker, based on a VERY obscure movie he wrote and starred in.

Maybe that old relationship with Sega is what got him slipped in with Ulala and her crew in SC5.
