SEGADriven is a SEGA fan-site that focuses on SEGA's console history, retro games and new software hitting the shelves soon. We want to share a love of great, quirky, clever and down-right fun games and SEGA have managed to provide this for over 2 decades. See below for the latest news, features and updates to the site.
We’ve made it to 200 video uploads on our YouTube channel! To celebrate we’re looking at the stranger side of the bootleg spectrum by taking a look at Sonic the Hedgehog bootlegs for the Nintendo Game Boy:
We’ve finally got a screen of SEGASonic Bros. that shows the multi-coloured Sonics that appear on the title screen, but actually in action.
While we’ve previously seen screens of different coloured balls on the game’s play-field (see below), the multi-coloured Sonics that appear on the title screen hadn’t previously been shown in game. From the above screenshot we can see the multi-coloured Sonics are actually used in play. We can only assume that turn into balls when placed or scored.
All pre-orders and first print editions of the upcoming SEGA 3D Classics Collection on 3DS will come with a free SEGA consoles decal sheet.
Got some spare faceplates that you no longer use for your New 3DS? Well why not sticker them up and make them well SEGAry mate! Stick em on your notebooks and sketchpads! Or you can do what I do and never use them, safeguarding their resale value!
You can see the decal sheet in the image below:

The two adventure games are first person puzzle affairs in a similar vein to PC classic Myst. Support for the Dreamcast mouse is also included.
All games in the Hucast online store are currently reduced so if you’ve been waiting to grab a certain something then now is the time to visit. Why not grab the best version of DUX (1.5) or vertical shmup Ghost Blade for EUR 29.66?
The official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account has uploaded a mysterious image with an encrypted message.
The accompanying text says, “The key lies with @madeon. Good luck.” Madeon is a French electronic music producer who uses a similar encrypted style of text on his music’s artwork.
While a Madeon collaboration linked to Sonic the Hedgehog seems inevitable, fans on Reddit have quickly worked to decipher the message in hopes it leads to information about the heavily rumoured 25th anniversary Sonic title.
ShouTime is back once again with another screenshot from the unreleased SEGASonic Bros. puzzle arcade game.
As you can see above, we now have a look at the game’s difficulty settings which are remarkably similar to Columns’:
ShouTime has also uploaded an image of a Sonic the Hedgehog rucksack which is tagged with ‘SEGASonic Bros’. It’s not confirmed but this could be a piece of merchandise that was tied into the release of the game, but it doesn’t explicitly state this on the actual rucksack.
