We were very lucky to be invited onto The Dreamcast Junkyard’s podcast, DreamPod. In this latest episode we join Tom, Aaron, Mike and Ross to discuss our favourite and most hated racing games for the Dreamcast. You can stream the episode below via YouTube below or you can click here to get links to the podcast on iTunes, Stitcher and many more.
We finally have our first look at how Sonic plays in Lego Dimensions! Developed by Traveller’s Tales, the studio behind Sonic R, Sonic 3D and countless Lego titles, Sonic’s level pack for Lego Dimensions includes Sonic himself and 2 vehicles to pilot; his car from All-Stars Racing and the Tornado of Sonic 2 fame. Sonic appears to have his modern 3D Sonic move-set complete with homing attack, but with additional combat mechanics. He can also pilot all manor of vehicles that already exist in Lego Dimesnions. Watch the trailer below to see Sonic crossover into other franchises you would never imagine seeing him in:
Sonic’s level pack for Lego Dimensions launches in Autumn this year and will be available for all versions of the game.
If the news of Sonic Mania wasn’t exciting enough then you’ll be pleased to know that Sonic Team are developing their own Sonic game in the same vein as Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations. Tentatively titled Project Sonic 2017, the teaser for the PS4/Xbox One/NX title is extremely exciting. I won’t spoil the surprise, just watch:
Project Sonic 2017 will be releasing on PS4, Xbox One and NX in Holiday 2017.
Developed in collaboration with Sonic CD/1/2 Remastered developer Christian Whitehead, SEGA have revealed a new 2D Sonic adventure called Sonic Mania and it looks GORGEOUS:
Sonic Mania features all new 2D art and stages, throwback stages which are based off stages in 16 bit Sonic titles and a new drop-dash mechanic which allows you to instantly accelerate after a fall to the ground.
Sonic Mania launches on PS4, Xbox One and PC in Spring 2017.

A fresh reprint of Yuan Works’s Dreamcast indie puzzle game Wind and Water Puzzle Battles is now available from Dragon Box Shop for only €9.99. You can order a copy right now by clicking here and we highly suggest that you do.
Wind and Water Puzzle Battles is a real gem in the world of independent Dreamcast games. This is an extremely charming, funny and challenging title that will give puzzle fans a lot to enjoy. The story mode takes you on a fantastic tour of gaming and is filled with humour and pastiches of many gaming clichés. If you’ve been after something new to play on your Dreamcast and previously missed this title then this comes highly recommended from us.
