SEGADriven is a SEGA fan-site that focusses 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 lastest news, features and updates to the site.
SEGA has teamed up with Humble Bundle once again to give PC gamers a great deal on a selection of SEGA PC titles while also raising money for charity.
This month’s bundle includes the following games which you can grab for anything from $0.01 to $3.60:
If you pay $3.61 or more you also open up access to Empire: Total War and Company of Heroes 2 – The Western Front Armies: Oberkommando West. Pay $12 or more and you also unlock Total War: Shogun 2 – Fall of the Samurai.
The really interesting bonus comes at a whopping price of $50 or more. Paying this much will mean you also get an exclusive Dreamcast t-shirt delivered to you. You can see the design in the image above. It’s certainly a pretty little thing.
The 2nd wave of SEGA arcade classics that have been converted to stereoscopic 3D for the 3DS have finally been announced for a Western release.
The 2nd wave includes After Burner II, Fantasy Zone, Out Run, Fantasy Zone II and Thunder Blade. The games will be individually priced at £4.49 a game and will start releasing in early 2015. The game’s are expected to release one-by-one on a monthly basis.
Some of these titles feature in the Japan exclusive collection SEGA 3D Reprint Archives. You can see a trailer for that below:
A glimpse of the TV advertising campaign for Sonic Boom has been unleashed with this new TV spot that’s now available to watch on the Sonic YouTube channel. It’s an amusing little clip that puts Sonic and the gang in the real world to save a cat stuck in a tree:
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for Wii-U and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for the 3DS launch in the UK on the 21st of November.
System-18 arcade shmup Hammer Away is a peculiar game that was due to release in arcades in 1991 but sadly never made it for unknown reasons. Now 23 years later, 3 shmup fans have managed to find the chips for the game in a warehouse in Portugal and the game has now been dumped making it available for play in arcade emulators like MAME.
2 gameplay videos of the game in action have been uploaded by the game’s finders below:

The Commodore 64 was an 8 bit home computer released in 1982 and would become one of the most beloved machines for gaming in the early days. Back before SEGA started making their own consoles and keeping the rights to their first party exclusives for themselves, many early computers received ports of SEGA arcade games. The Commodore 64 is no exception and the video below highlights a lot (if not all) of the SEGA arcade ports that made their way to the machine. There’s some interesting inclusions with the port of Space Harrier being particularly impressive. While some games transfer to the machine better than others, this is still an interesting showcase in how to make high-powered software run on a significantly under-powered machine.
The Sonic Show is 8 years old this year. That’s a long time to be running a Sonic-centric video series. Originally hosted on its own website, it now operates exclusively out of YouTube. To celebrate this milestone the show is releasing its first collection exclusive music and it’s called The Complete Mess Collection which to be frank is quite fitting.
All the Japanese DLC for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd will be making its way west for the US and European launch of the game.
Individual songs for the game will be priced at £1.99 and modules AKA costumes will be priced at £1.19. 10 songs and 45 modules are promised for the game so there’s a fair bit of content to keep you busy with upon completion of the game’s standard content.
SEGA have also announced 2 season passes for the songs and modules. The Song Club offer gets you all 10 songs for £19.99 while the Costume Club offer gets you all 45 modules for £39.99.
