New Sonic Design Debuts in Brand New Sonic Movie Trailer | Video Spotlight

November 12th, 2019

After the negative reception of Sonic’s look in the first trailer for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie, Paramount Pictures have gone back to the drawing board, delayed the film until February 2020 and given the visual effects team some extra time to redesign the character. We now have our first look at Sonic’s redesigned with this brand new trailer. Check it out below:

While the design still looks quite similar to the original, with Sonic having 2 separated eyes and lots of finer spines on his back, he definitely looks more like his game model with an overall cuter look and the addition of gloves instead of white fur on his hands. His shoes are also more comparable to those of the games as well.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie will now launch on February 14th 2020. Ben Schwartz voices Sonic with James Marsden playing his police officer friend Tom and Jim Carrey taking the role of Dr. Robotnik.

November 11th, 2019

Another selection of updates to our hardware section have just gone live. See below for the full list of additions complete with links to each article:

SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis Mini article complete with specifications and images has been added. Huge thanks to Mark Hughes for the images of the Japanese Mega Drive Mini and Tower of Power
SEGA Genesis 32X/Neptune article has been completely revised with a new specification and images

SEGA Fish Life and Unreleased Dreamcast Zip Drive Features Added to Hardware Section

November 11th, 2019

2 new features on some rather obscure Dreamcast hardware have now been added to our hardware section.

To begin with we have a feature on the incredibly rare, Japan-only SEGA Fish Life unit. This piece of hardware was sold to businesses as a way to add a virtual aquarium to their decor.

The other hardware feature we’ve added is on the unreleased Dreamcast Zip Drive peripheral. This peripheral would have connected to a Dreamcast and sat underneath the console and given users access to 100mb zip disks to allow for greater storage space while browsing the internet and downloading additional game content.

Both features contain multiple images of both pieces of hardware.

Unreleased Prototypes of Sonic 2 and Sonic Chaos Dumped by Hidden Palace

November 10th, 2019

UPDATE
Overnight an additional Sonic 2 prototype has been made available by the good people at Hidden Palace. This prototype dates from August 1992 and can be downloaded by clicking here.

ORIGINAL STORY
Hidden Palace‘s Sonic Month continues with a fresh selection of unreleased Sonic prototypes. This time we have 3 different releases of Sonic Chaos for Master System and Game Gear and a separate Sonic the Hedgehog 2 release for Mega Drive.

The Sonic Chaos releases date from May, June and July 1993 with the May release being an early Game Gear prototype that features different character sprites from the final build. Download links for each of these releases are listed below:

Sonic Chaos (May 17 1993, Game Gear)
Sonic Chaos (June 30 1993, Master System)
Sonic Chaos (July 13 1993, Master System)

The Sonic the Hedgehog 2 prototype comes from September 1992 and still features beta stage names and some graphical glitches with the title cards which have previously been published in the Sonic 2 Gold Guide by Tony Takoushi. This prototype can be downloaded by clicking here.

For fans of either game, these prototypes reveal some fascinating insight into the games’ development and are well worth a look if you have any interest in either game.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 on Steam Upgraded to Complete Edition, Existing Owners Receive All DLC For Free

November 8th, 2019

Owners of Valkyria Chronicles 4 on Steam are in for a treat, as the game has now been rebranded to the Complete Edition – even for those who already bought it!

The Complete Edition replaces the listing for the original release, and comes in at £39.99 – except now, you also get all of the DLC included in that price. And if that wasn’t enough, SEGA’s gone back and applied this retroactively to anyone who already purchased the game! So picked up Valkyria Chronicles 4 at launch and wish you’d waited for the Complete Edition? No need – you get all of the DLC for free!

It’s pretty generous to say the least, and a welcome move from SEGA. We can’t remember the last time ‘Game of the Year’ or ‘Complete Edition’ goodies got retroactively given to existing customers, so it’s a pleasant surprise.
