Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X HD, the PS4 port of the previously Vita exclusive rhythm game, is finally scheduled for a Japanese release on August 25th for PS4. We’ve also got a new trailer featuring a medley of songs from the game that you can watch below:

There is currently no word on whether the game will make it to Europe, but a US release for the game was confirmed for Autumn last month. Looks like a simultaneous worldwide launch might be on the cards if SEGA Europe decide to pull their finger out.

Review: Alien Syndrome (2007)

April 14th, 2016

aliensyndromewii

Alien Syndrome was resurrected in 2007 for a sequel to the 1987 arcade original that came to Wii and PSP. In our review of the Wii game, we discover if it was worth the effort of bringing back such a long-dead franchise and whether developer Totally Games had anything interesting to add to such a simple formula.

Sonic 4 Ep 1 iOS Updated: Now Features Higher Resolution Art

April 5th, 2016

sonic4update

A long overdue update to Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 has finally arrived for iOS. We’ve had a quick muck around with the new version of the game this morning and found the following changes:

– Sonic’s character model is considerably more detailed and more closely resembles the home console versions (image comparisons below)
– All art assets are now of a much higher resolution which makes use of modern iOS retina displays. Menus and HUD items do still look a bit stretched
– The stage select screen now resembles the home console stage select screen that uses a map of Sonic’s world (image comparisons below)
– The gyro controls in the special stages are much smoother now

Project Diva X Coming to the US in Autumn 2016

March 31st, 2016

SEGA America will be bringing Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X to the US in Autumn 2016 for both PS Vita and PS4.

The latest title in the franchise only launched on PS Vita in Japan earlier this month, while the Japanese PS4 version was also scheduled for the third quarter of 2016 anyway. This could mean a worldwide release is scheduled for this title, similar to the launch of Project Mirai DX on 3DS. However, there is no official word on a European release at this time.
