SEGA Mobile Crossover Puzzler ‘SEGA Heroes’ is Out Today

November 15th, 2018

SEGA have released a brand new mobile title today called SEGA Heroes. The game is a Bejeweled-like puzzler with RPG elements and an abundance of characters from various classic SEGA franchises. Put together a team of up to 4 characters and battle it out to level up and gain power ups. You can play as characters from Sonic the Hedgehog, Golden Axe, Shinobi and Streets of Rage and all the characters have been drawn in a cartoony, big-head style that keeps things looking consistent. Check out the launch trailer below:

SEGA Heroes is out now on the Google Play store and iOS app store. The game is a free download but it supports in-app purchases.

Sonic Forces Soundtracks Now Available on Spotify

November 9th, 2018

Almost a year to the day since the game released, the soundtracks to 2017’s Sonic Forces have finally been made available on Spotify, alongside many of SEGA’s other soundtracks.

This includes the original soundtrack, A Hero Will Rise, as well as the Vocal Track Collection, On the Edge.

It’s a welcome addition to the lineup – as divisive as Forces was, most people can agree that it at least had some solid music in there.

We’ve included links to the albums on Spotify below.

Sonic 2 SEGA Ages Port to Include Scrapped Material, M2 Reveal Plans to Port Dreamcast Games

November 1st, 2018

In an interview with Game Watch, M2’s Naoki Horii has revealed a lot of details about the Switch line of SEGA Ages ports.

Some key highlights include plans to port Sonic the Hedgehog 2 to the system and include elements originally removed from the game due to console limitations. Also revealed are plans to port Dreamcast games to the Switch and Horii confirmed there’s 3 key titles that the team are currently working on, but didn’t mention which ones.

The current batch of SEGA Ages ports will be a part of what M2 are calling, “season one”. They are planning 15 games for this season and the previously announced Thunder Force AC port will include additional stages and more colours than its original release. The team are also using fan feedback to help enhance their port of Gain Ground.

There has also been confirmation that the Model 1 emulation they are using for Virtua Racing allows them to improve the game. There is even talk of potentially porting the Model 1 Star Wars Arcade game if they can get authorisation to use the Star Wars license.

M2 have also revealed that they are planning to do a 2nd season of SEGA Ages ports once they’ve completed work on the first 15 games.

The SEGA Ages line currently consists of ports of Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force IV and Phantasy Star which is currently Japan exclusive. A port is due for a Western release but there is currently no release dates. Other titles confirmed for a SEGA Ages release include Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Gain Ground, Space Harrier, Out Run, Columns II, Thunder Force AC, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Virtua Racing. 4 more unannounced games will round out season one.

Omega Blast is Another Homebrew Mega Drive Game Celebrating the Console’s 30th Anniversary

October 30th, 2018

Developed by Nendo, Omega Blast is a vertical ‘bullet hell’ shoot-em-up for the Mega Drive and a near complete version of the game is now available as part of the 30th anniversary of the Japanese launch of the Mega Drive.

This homebrew title is a free download and can be played in a Mega Drive emulator or directly on a Mega Drive itself with use of a flash cart. It’s a very impressive-looking title that reminds us of the infamous NES bullet hell shmup Summer Carnival ’92: Recca. You can see the game in action below:

New Indie Mega Drive Title Marks 30 Years Since the Mega Drive Launched in Japan

October 29th, 2018

It’s the 30th anniversary of the Mega Drive, and what better way to celebrate than by playing a brand new Mega Drive game!

Developed by Dr. Ludos, 30 Years of Nintendon’t sees you trying to convince NES owners to buy a Mega Drive instead of a SNES by tempting them with more attractive, Mega Drive-exclusive games. It’s a silly little concept that makes for a fun distraction. You can play it in browser via the game’s Itch page, or alternatively you can download the ROM for use on an actual Mega Drive if you have a flash cart to load it onto.

There are also future plans to release the game on an actual Mega Drive cartridge through Catskull Games. If you’ve got some time to kill and you’re nostalgic for the days when SEGA were a market leader, then why not give 30 Years of Nintendon’t a try?

SEGA’s UK Online Shop Has Finally Opened | Merchandise

October 27th, 2018

SEGA’s long-awaited UK online shop has finally opened and there’s some very interesting items up for sale.

There’s merchandise ranges for Yakuza, Alex the Kidd, Streets of Rage, Sonic the Hedgehog and more. Some of our favourite items include a very cool set of Yakuza family crest pin badges in a presentation box, an Alex Kidd framed print, a Streets of Rage drawstring bag and the Sonic x Sanio range of crossover plushies.

There’s also merchandise based on consoles so if a Mega Drive and Dreamcast range of clothing is up your street then the SEGA UK shop has you covered. This is probably the most extensive range of SEGA merchandise available outside of SEGA’s US online store, so if you’re based in the UK and have been jealous of the US SEGA shop, you finally have an alternative.

Head on over to the UK SEGA Shop now and browse their many collections. There’s bound to be something that’ll take your fancy.
