YouTube Users with Shining Force III Content Being Targeted for Copyright Infringement

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

In a bizarre turn of events, certain YouTube users who have content featuring SEGA Saturn classic Shining Force III are being targeted for copyright infringement. Their videos and in some cases their channels are being removed and the people being targeted are usually those hosting translated content from part 2 and 3 which were never released in the West.

One user MarauderEx who had his channel taken down contacted SEGA and got the following response:

“Hello, we never give explicit permission to use our intellectual property. However, in cases like this we tend not to take action unless we or our products are slandered in the derivative works. Best Regards, SEGA Customer Support.”

As MarauderEx’s material didn’t contain slander (along with users TotalBiscuit and synbios16) some are questioning the authenticity of the accusation. The claim comes from an unnamed person with a “legit” email address and is named in some SEGA games in a “special thanks” section but not in Shining Force III.

More on this as we get it.

Anarchy Reigns Limited Edition Includes Playable Bayonetta

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Anarchy Reigns will be getting a limited edition which includes Bayonetta as a playable character.

The limited edition also includes 2 bonus multiplayer modes; Mad Survival and Dogfight. Mad Survival pits a team of 3 characters against waves of enemies that are made up of playable characters from the game. Dogfight’s mechanic is to hang you from helicopters while you shoot at other players also hanging from helicopters. Sounds mental.

Anarchy Reigns launches in the UK on the 11th of January 2013 for £19.99. The game is already out in Japan where it goes by the name of Max Anarchy.

3DS/Vita/PC Version of ASR: Transformed Delayed

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Steve Lycett from Sumo Digital has confirmed a delay on the 3DS, PS Vita and PC versions of Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed. SEGA had originally slated the release for November 16th but Lycett has said:

“Given we’re still working on it, 16th November UK release is unlikely. I think SEGA either have or are due to announce the handheld dates over here, they’re slightly later than the home console versions.”

So sad times if you wanted to get those versions on November 16th. More on this story when SEGA decide to announce the corrected dates.
