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.
Total War: Warhammer is finally official! The worst kept secret at The Creative Assembly is now ready to see the light of day thanks to the below reveal trailer. Sadly the whole thing is a cinematic trailer so there’s no actual gameplay to be seen at the moment. Regardless, you can watch the trailer below:
The game will allow you to command, “gigantic monsters, flying creatures, legendary heroes and storms of magical power”. Sounds fun!
No release date has currently been revealed other than an ominous, “coming soon” at the end of the trailer. Hopefully that means a 2015 release.
Hucast’s next Dreamcast release is the vertical-scrolling shooter Ghost Blade and after a serious set-back when the previous programmer left the project, the game is now set for a release this year on September the 17th.
You can pre-order the game now. A standard and special edition is available with the standard simply featuring the game and a manual while the special edition also includes the game’s soundtrack on a separate disc.
Today’s Mega Driving club video features SEGA’s 1989 Chase HQ clone, Battle Out Run. This is an obscure little entry in the Out Run franchise that’s actually worth your time. Check out our video about the game below:
The Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth trilogy is coming to PC and while the first game is currently available, the second and third haven’t had their release dates set… until now. Well sort of; one of them has a solid date and the other has a projected date.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation is released on the 19th of May while Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth3: V Generation is set for an Autumn release. These games are HD ports of the PS Vita games and now feature the option to choose Japanese or English voice overs.
If you are unfamiliar with the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise then you can expect 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. The Re;Birth games take place in an alternate world based on the video games of the 1980s. While the games are not published by SEGA, they are made in collaboration with the company.
The latest trailer for Imageepoch’s Stella Glow has arrived and it features some of the most detailed gameplay footage of the game so far. The game plays similarly to the Nobunaga’s Ambition series which means the standard RPG combat is paired with strategy elements. Check out the 6 minute trailer below:
Stella Glow is released on the 4th of June on 3DS. The game is currently Japan exclusive but Atlus have confirmed a North American release for later this year. There is no word on a European version at this time.
SEGA have announced another wave of 3D classics for the 3DS eShop. The new titles are 3D Sonic the Hegdehog 2, 3D Streets of Rage 2 and 3D Gunstar Heroes.
These games will arrive in the summer after the remaining season 2 games are released. 3D Fantasy Zone II is due to release tomorrow while 3D Thunder Blade launches on May 14th. 3D Streets of Rage 2 will then come first in July while 3D Gunstar Heroes and 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will follow in August and September respectively.
Each game in the SEGA 3D classics range costs £4.49 a piece and they’ve all been exemplary ports so far. The games have been ported by M2 who feature ex-Treasure staff.
A fan-made Shenmue documentary is currently in the works. Directed by Adam Sipione, Shenmue: The Documentary will explore the history of the game as well as feature stories from fans of the franchise.
As the documentary is currently in production there is currently no projected release date. You can follow the production of the documentary by liking the Facebook page or following the Twitter profile.
Bandai Namco, Capcom and SEGA team up once again for another edition of Project X Zone! The sequel to the 3DS crossover RPG will be making its way west in the Autumn of this year. The game now features Resident Evil characters, Mega Man characters, Soulcalibur characters and Yakuza characters (our personal favourites). You can see Kiryu and Majima in action in the above screenshot. You can also check out the Western reveal trailer by clicking below:
While Rodea the Sky Soldier won’t be published in the West by SEGA, the game’s origins lie with ex-SEGA developer Yuji Naka. His new studio Prope developed the original Wii version of the game before it was shelved. The game was then remade for Wii U and 3DS but limited edition versions of the Wii U game will now come with Prope’s original Wii version which varies slightly to the Wii U and 3DS games. The Wii version has a greater score attack focus (similar to Naka’s NiGHTS into dreams…) which is at odds with the Wii U and 3DS’ focus on exploration. You can now watch a large section of Wii gameplay below:
Rodea the Sky Soldier is released in the West on the 25th of September through NIS America. Day one editions of the Wii U version will come with the Wii game as a bonus disc.
