First Screens of Akira Yuki in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax

Friday, February 28th, 2014

There you have it; Akira Yuki from Virtua Fighter in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax!

Akira appears as a part of the 20th anniversary celebrations of the release of the original Virtua Fighter. His appearance in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is that of a boss character who is partnered with Pai Chan as a support character.

As Akira only appears as a boss character he is not playable in the arcade game. Fingers crossed this will change if the game gets a home console release.

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is out in Japanese arcades this Spring.

SEGA Tunes: Jungle Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog (8 Bit)

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

It’s been a while since we took a look back at some classic SEGA anthems and I thought it was worth featuring the below track simply because it’s been stuck in my head all morning!

Today we are taking a look at the rather lovely 8 bit ditty that is the theme to Jungle Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog for Master System and Gamer Gear. The track was composed by Yuzo Koshiro who is more famously recognised for his thumping, dance style and the Streets of Rage soundtracks.

The Sonic the Hedgehog 8 bit soundtrack showcases Yuzo Koshiro in a lighter, more poppier mood yet still manages to be a highly memorable collection of songs. Hopefully you will all be whistling the Jungle Zone theme once you’re done with this!

London Trocadero to Close This Month

Friday, February 14th, 2014

The London Trocadero which is home to one of the most popular arcade gaming spots in the UK, is closing its doors for good on February 25th.

Previously the home of SEGA World and later Fun Land, the venue has housed one of the biggest arcades in London and an important landmark for those who are interested in arcade gaming and don’t live near a seaside town.

The Heart of Gaming in North Acton obtained a selection of its arcade cabinets from the Trocadero last year which was telling of the degradation of the Trocadero which had slowly been shrinking in scale since its Fun Land days.

It’s sad to see London’s premier arcade go, but it certainly wasn’t in the best shape in recent years. RIP London Trocadero; we knew thee well.

You can see what the London Trocadero was like in its heyday by checking out this video report we made back in 2010:
