SEGADriven is a SEGA fan-site that focusses 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 lastest news, features and updates to the site.
First 4 Figures have unveiled a new statue and this time it takes the form of NiGHTS. The statue is modeled on the signature pose NiGHTS pulls on the original game’s title screen but the character is in the costume that was introduced with the game’s sequel, NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams. The crescent moon also lights up which is quite a lovely little touch.
The NiGHTS statue is limited to 500 pieces worldwide and is available to pre-order now. The entire statue will cost you $234.99 with an initial $20 down-payment. You can go straight to the statue’s entry on First 4 Figures online store by clicking here.
Hear that? That’s the sound of me weeping into a pillow at the thought of Japanese 3DS owners being able to purchase this incredible new theme based on the Dreamcast (as well as many other retro SEGA consoles). Check out video of the theme in action and marvel at the attention to detail (VMU and disc drive sounds!):
The current range of SEGA console themes for 3DS are sadly exclusive to Japan at the moment. Fingers crossed they eventually make it West.
Rock n’ Roll Racing by Silicon & Synapse is a racing game in the RC Pro Am mold that features an isometric view point. The tracks are littered with weapons and power ups to help you get the upper hand on your fellow racers in a much more aggressive manner. Check out our video review of the game below:
SEGA Japan and Compile Heart have revealed Neptunia vs. SEGA Hard Girls; a new crossover game for the PS Vita.
If you are unfamiliar with the 2 titles, Hyperdimension Neptunia is an action RPG which features a fantasy world themed around video game consoles. The game takes its moniker from the cancelled SEGA Neptune console and various SEGA characters cameo in the series. SEGA Hard Girls is a short animated series based around SEGA’s various game franchises and features characters who are based on SEGA consoles so it’s a pretty good fit for the world of Hyperdimension Neptunia.
There is currently no screenshots or footage available for Neptunia vs. SEGA Hard Girls but we’re expecting it to be an action RPG in a similar style as Hyperdimension Neptunia. More details as we get them.
SEGA Japan have revealed a new strategy RPG called Stella Glow and it’s being developed by Imageepoch for the 3DS. Imageepoch have worked with SEGA on RPGs in the past as they were responsible for Sands of Destruction and 7th Dragon on the DS.
You can check out the first trailer for the game below:
Stella Glow is released in Japan on the 4th of June. There is currently no word on a Western release.
3D Out Run is released today! You can now grab the latest port of the SEGA AM2 arcade-driving classic from the 3DS eShop and we suggest that you do because M2 have done a marvelous job in making this the definitive version of the game (and it’s portable!). Check out the launch trailer for the game below:
SEGA will publish a new 2D action platformer developed by Game Freak called Tembo the Badass Elephant. As Tembo you must battle the evil PHANTOM army from taking over Shell City. Check out the announcement trailer below; it’s all kinds of fun:
Tembo the Badass Elephant will launch this summer on PC, PS4 and Xbox One as a digital-only title.
The Creative Assembly’s Total War franchise is now 15 years old and to celebrate the studio have released a lovely little video that looks back at everything from Shogun: Total War to Total War: Attila.
Keep an eye out for a cheeky little nod to the upcoming Warhammer game that the studio are developing but still haven’t officially announced (come on guys, we all know it’s happening):
Sumo Digital have put together a gallery of unused concepts for the original Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing.
As you can see above, Gillius was due to appear in the first game riding the Chicken Leg creature from the first Golden Axe. Sonic is also seen running around without a vehicle and Tails can also be seen a biplane similar to the original red Tornado design.
