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.
SEGA need to calm down with their mobile releases. Within a week we’ve had Sonic Runners launch worldwide, Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom released for Android and now Heroki by Picomy is out for iOS devices.
The flying/action adventure game is a “premium” iOS release meaning it has a price and isn’t loaded with in-app purchases and adverts (thank God). The game is £5.99 in the UK and €7.99 for the rest of Europe.
Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom has been surprise-launched for Android devices.
The sequel to Hardlight’s Sonic Dash takes its visual influence from the recent Sonic Boom animated series. The complete list of features as taken from the Google Play store can be seen below:

Unseen 64 have unearthed concept art for a planned (but ultimately scrapped) third Vectorman game. The working title for the game was Vectorman 3: Ultra and it was in development for the SEGA Saturn by the original Blue Sky development team.
It’s also worth noting that this is a different Vectorman game than the one SEGA would later try and revive the franchise with. That game was a PS2 game that was being developed by Pseudo Interactive but this was eventually cancelled as well.
The latest Sonic mobile title is a 2D endless runner, similar in scope to Pac-Man Dash and Rayman: Jungle Run. Sonic automatically runs through a Windy Hill-styled stage and you have to tap the screen to make him jump. That’s all there is to it.
SEGA have conducted a 3 part interview with Toshihiro Nagoshi and Masayoshi Yokoyama, the director and producer of Yakuza 5. In the interview they discuss Yakuza 5’s theme and answer questions from the fans:
Yakuza 5 launches in the West in the 4th quarter of this year.
