Night Trap ReVamped Kickstarter Campaign Starts

August 27th, 2014

Mega-CD FMV classic Night Trap is returning to PC, Mac and consoles via a Kickstarter campaign.

The rights to the original game have been secured by Night Trap, LLC and the team are looking to bring a higher resolution version of the game to PC and consoles in 2015. The team are promising lots of cool stuff if the campaign hits its target goal like a potential sequel and more ports of Digital Pictures’ games like Sewer Shark and Corpse Killer.

There are a variety of Kickstarter rewards available including a rather intriguing one that gets you the main theme as a CD single. Check out the Kickstarter page by clicking here. The project is struggling with a total of $37,034 raised towards its goal of $330,000. There are 13 days left to pledge.

Check out the Kickstarter’s campaign video below:

Video Spotlight: SEGA Hard Girls Anime Trailer

August 27th, 2014

If you’re unfamiliar with SEGA Hard Girls then allow me to elaborate: SEGA Hard Girls is a new multimedia project from SEGA that is similar in concept to Compile Hearts’ Hyperdimension Neptunia. It also sounds rather naughty but that’s merely coincidence.

Classic SEGA consoles are re-imagined as magical girls and the character designs were drawn by Kei who is famous for creating the Project Diva artwork.

An anime series is scheduled for release in October this year and you can see a trailer for the series below. It’s absolutely chock-full of SEGA references so have fun spotting them all:

SEGA Tunes: Chemical Planet Zone Remixes

August 27th, 2014

We have a couple of cracking Chemical Plant Zone remixes for you!

First up, the lovely people at The Warp Zone have rearranged the theme in an unplugged, smooth jazz style and it’s rather brilliant. Check out the video for the song below:

YouTube comedian Brett Domino has also reworked Chemical Plant Zone into a rave anthem and performed his version live at Beat-Herder Festival back in July. Check out a load of indie kids losing their minds to Brett’s version below:

Ryu Ga Gotoku Zero Announced, Screenshots Revealed

August 27th, 2014

A new Ryu Ga Gotoku/Yakuza game has been announced. The new game is called Ryu Ga Gotoku Zero and it’s a prequel to the main series. Check out the first batch of screenshots below:

Ryu Ga Gotoku Zero will launch on PS3 and PS4. There is no release date set at this time. It is unlikely that it’ll make it to the West as Ryu Ga Gotoku 1&2 HD Edition, 5 and Ishin are still Japan exclusive. Frankly this situation sucks and SEGA needs to do something about it.

Fan Scene: Fan Creates HD Remastered Version of Yokosuka from Shenmue

August 18th, 2014

Well isn’t this just lovely. A Korean Shenmue fan going by the name of NoconKid has recreated an area of Yokosuka from Shenmue in glorious high definition. Check out the 2 videos showcasing the area as well as the arcade newly kitted out with a variety of classic SEGA arcade games:

Doesn’t it just tug at the heartstrings? More importantly, doesn’t it make you yearn for a HD port of Shenmue? One can dream.

2nd Run of Beggar Prince Coming in 2016

August 8th, 2014

Super Fighter Team are going to produce a 2nd run of Beggar Prince on Mega Drive in honour of the game’s 20th anniversary.

If you are unfamiliar with the game then Beggar Prince is an RPG that was originally released in small quantities in Taiwan back in 1996. Super Fighter Team produced an English translated version and gave it a worldwide pressing in 2006. It’s since become incredibly sought after with the Super Fighter Team version regularly selling for upwards of a £100.

3D Thunder Blade Coming to Japanese eShop

August 8th, 2014

Thunder Blade is the latest SEGA classic to get the 3DS re-mastering.

The game will be re-released with stereoscopic 3D on the 3DS eShop on the 20th of August but as per the norm it’s currently Japan exclusive.

A special mode has been announced but what it exactly entails is still a mystery. Gyro controls have also been added for the handful of people that like playing a classic game in the worst way possible.

More on this as we get it.
