SEGA AGES: Wonder Boy in Monster Land Releases May 30th in Japan

Monday, May 27th, 2019

Sound the SEGA AGES alarm, because the latest title in M2’s lovingly crafted range of Nintendo Switch ports is almost upon us. Wonder Boy in Monster Land will be the next title released in the range, arriving this week, May 30th, in the Japanese Nintendo eShop.

Mooted features for the release include the Trial Mode content from the previous SEGA Vintage Collection release, as well as a single button mapping for the game’s “Alchemy” system and an additional difficulty setting.

Unfortunately, things have gone quiet on the Western front – SEGA AGES Puyo Puyo and Virtua Racing are still nowhere to be seen. Hopefully they show up sooner rather than later, and we’ll let you know if they do get release dates confirmed.

Day 1 will consist of the following games:

  • Sonic Adventure DX
  • Sonic Adventure 2
  • Sonic Generations
  • Day 2 will consist of the following games:

  • Sonic Lost World
  • Sonic Mania
  • Sonic Forces
  • Check out the trailer for Race for Good 2: Adventure Battle DX by clicking below:

    The race will be hosted on both twitch.tv/projectphoenixproductions & twitch.tv/thebritishandy on June 22nd and June 23rd. It will begin at 8am BST/3am EDT/12am PDT. We wish both TitansCreed and TheBritishAndy all the best during their stream! As soon as a donation page is available we will update this story so you can donate to their cause.

    Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Delayed to February 14th 2020, Citing Sonic’s Redesign

    Friday, May 24th, 2019

    Jeff Fowler, the Director of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie from Paramount, has taken to Twitter to announce that the film has been pushed back from its November/December 2019 release date. The film will now launch on February 14th 2020, with Fowler citing the previously confirmed redesign of Sonic as the cause.

    For those who’ve been under a rock, the trailer for the Sonic movie debuted to widespread horror at Sonic’s design, leading Fowler to almost immediately state they’d change it. This then led to concerns that the VFX artists would be hit by major crunch trying to fix things for the 2019 release window.

    As such, the film’s now been delayed. It’s a welcome move honestly – now we go back to awaiting out next look at Sonic with bated breath.

    Thursday, May 16th, 2019

    UPDATE: The Western titles have now been confirmed.

    The next batch of games available on the Mega Drive Mini have been announced, and are as follows:

    JAPAN:

    • Ghouls n Ghosts
    • Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition
    • Mega Man: The Wily Wars
    • Golden Axe
    • Revenge of Shinobi
    • Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium
    • The Story of Thor (Beyond Oasis)
    • Puzzle & Action: Tant-R
    • Party Quiz Mega Q
    • Yu Yu Hakusho Makyō Tōitsusen

    AMERICA/EUROPE:

    • Mega Man®: The Wily Wars
    • Street Fighter II’®: Special Champion Edition
    • Sonic Spinball

    • Beyond Oasis
    • Ghouls ‘N Ghosts®

    Something cool to note: the last 4 games on this list supported 4 players via a Multitap on the original Mega Drive. They actually retain this functionality on the Mini – you can use a USB Hub to connect more controllers!

    It’s also been confirmed that RetroBit will be making 6-button pads for the Mini, as unlike the Japanese version which includes them as standard, the Western versions only have 3-button pads included.

     

    Sonic Movie Director Pledges to Change Sonic Design After Heavy Criticism

    Friday, May 3rd, 2019

    After heavy criticism of Sonic’s on-screen appearance in the first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, director Jeff Fowler has made it clear that changes to the design are, “going to happen”. Fowler’s full tweet regarding the backlash is below:

    “Thank you for the support. And the criticism. The message is loud and clear… you aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be… #sonicmovie #gottafixfast”

    This is quite an interesting development and something that likely comes with a heavy development and marketing cost. It also shows a greater commitment to protecting Sonic’s status as one of the most recognisable mascot characters of the nineties, who was previously reported to be more recognisable than Mickey Mouse in the 6 to 11 year old demographic in 1992.

    The first Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer has currently been viewed 21.7 million times with 283 thousand likes and 479 thousand dislikes. The film is due to be released in the US on November 8th 2019. Sonic himself will be voiced by Ben Schwartz.
