Sega All Stars

Sega All Stars was Sega's budget series for the Dreamcast in North America. It included a total of 17 titles, each retailing for $19.95 in the United States and $29.95[1] in Canada. Seven of these were first released as Dreamcast launch titles.[2] Sega All Stars titles are typically rated "E for Everyone" by the ESRB, and typically have a sports theme, but there are a few exceptions.

Game covers were given an orange bar (as opposed to Europe's blue color scheme) with the brand name written from top to bottom. The disc labels were also changed to include a small circle and the Sega All Stars brand printed inside of it. Also, in printing, original releases said "Sega Dreamcast" on the disc but the All-stars versions just simply said "Dreamcast" to match up games released with the black label. Original Dreamcast games were released in the white labels and said "Sega Dreamcast" on the inlay like the Sega All-stars labels.

In Japan, the budget line is known as Dreamcast Collection, or DoriKore for short. The first six games in the series feature completely redesigned cover art. Another 50 games in the series only featured a DoriKore sticker on the plastic wrapper, making these games otherwise indistinguishable from regular releases.[3]
