Ports of Fighting Vipers and Motor Raid to Appear in Project Judge

September 20th, 2018

Project Judge (also known as Judge Eyes in Japan) will feature some interesting SEGA arcade titles in its in-game arcades.

First up we have a fresh port of AM2’s 1995 fighting game Fighting Vipers, which has previously appeared on Saturn as well as receiving modern HD ports for Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2012.

The more interesting announcement is that 1997’s Motor Raid is receiving a port. This futuristic, motorcycle racing game features combat similar to Road Rash and this port will be the first time it’s ever appeared on a home system. Interested in how this plays? Our buddies at Saturn Memories did a video on it a while back:

Project Judge will release as Judge Eyes in Japan on the 13th of December 2018 for PS4. It is an original title from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios set in the same world as the Yakuza franchise. A Western release is scheduled for sometime in 2019.

Mega Drive Mini Delayed to 2019 – AtGames Are Off the Project

September 19th, 2018

SEGA’s Mega Drive mini console has been delayed to 2019 in an attempt to improve the system and aim for a worldwide launch.

The system was previously being developed by AtGames who have a notorious reputation for developing clone systems that don’t perform well or emulate sound accurately. SEGA is now working with a domestic Japanese software developer but the developer has not been named at this time. The statement from SEGA Japan says the developer has “a proven track record”. Could it be M2, the developers of the SEGA Ages ports?

SEGA’s Mega Drive and Genesis mini consoles will launch together worldwide in 2019.
