Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X Announced for PS Vita and PS4

September 1st, 2015


Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X has been revealed for PS Vita and PS4. The game launches in Japan on PS Vita in March 2016 while the PS4 version is coming later in the year (currently scheduled for Autumn 2016). You can check out the reveal trailer below featuring the new song Raspberry Monster by Honeyworks:

There is currently no word on a Western release but considering the West has recently got Project Diva F, F 2nd and Project Mirai DX, it would be strange for SEGA to miss out on this one. All my fingers are crossed.

SegaSonic Arcade Headed to Heart of Gaming

August 26th, 2015

SegaSonic The Hedgehog (Japan, rev. C)-3

The Heart of Gaming, an arcade that operates out of North Acton, London will be home to a working version of SegaSonic the Hedgehog Arcade very soon.

The team who run the arcade have managed to acquire a board for the game and are working on a cabinet to house it. The board is a strange one in that it includes a “suicide” battery which is installed to regualate repairs and distribution as the game was only ever distributed properly in Japanese markets.

A few cabinets made their way West with one being available in the Trocadero in Picadilly Circus and another in London’s flagship Hamleys store. This will be the first time the machine has been playable on the correct hardware in a London arcade for close to 20 years.

SegaSonic the Hedgehog Arcade is a 3 player, trackball, action game released in 1993. More updates on this machine as we learn more about the game’s availability at The Heart of Gaming.

Yakuza 5 Digital Pre-Order Now Live, Game Will Include All Japanese DLC

August 25th, 2015


You can now put down a digital pre-order for Yakuza 5 on PSN for Playstation 3. The game releases later this year (still no firm release date) and a pre-order will guarantee you an exclusive theme for your PS3 dashboard. Hooray.

Also confirmed for the Western release of Yakuza 5 is all the Japanese DLC, included with a purchase of the game as standard. One of these packs is called, “Another Drama” and features detailed sub-plots for each of the 5 playable characters.

Project Diva-Inspired Anime Rhythm Game Miracle Girls Festival Launches Dec 17th in Japan

August 20th, 2015


An anime-themed rhythm game based on the Project Diva engine called Miracle Girls Festival will launch in Japan on December 17th for PS Vita.

The game features characters from such series’ as Yuru Yuri, Go Go 575, Kirino Mosaic and Arpeggio of Blue Steel. Those are things that exist apparently.

You can watch a gameplay trailer below. It all looks incredibly similar to a Project Diva game so it instantly has my attention because God damn do I love that series:

Despite only being confirmed for a Japanese release, this game can be imported and played on any PS Vita due to the console’s lack of region lock. I’ve personally had no trouble learning to play Project Diva using my Japanese copies and I have no understanding of the language so if I can do it, anyone can.

Glitch Results in Project Mirai DX Demo Being Playable Once for EU Players

August 19th, 2015


A demo for Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX has gone live on the North American and European 3DS eShops but a publishing glitch has resulted in a strict one use limit for European players. This probably won’t get fixed before the game’s full release.

The North American version suffers no problem with the standard 30 use limit being available. I’m still not sure why the 3DS eShop restricts the amount of uses a player can have with a demo anyway, but at least the North American audience can have a little longer with the demo before they decide to buy the full game.

Remember being able to keep demos? Good times. Anyway Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX launches on the 8th of September.

August 18th, 2015


As part of the 15th anniversary celebrations of Phantasy Star Online, SEGA are releasing Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation and you can get your first look at the anime below:

“localize the fucking game i dont like getting cucked by u sega”

I do love me some entitled video game fans.

Phantasy Star Online 2 Heading to PS4 in Japan

August 18th, 2015


Phantasy Star Online 2 is making the big move from PC to console in Japan next year.

A PS4 version is currently in the works but there’s no word on whether this will be a boxed product or a free-to-play download like the PC version. Other MMORPGs that have seen PS4 release like Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn have been sold as a boxed product but this game works on a subscription service with the purchase of a boxed copy essentially signing you up for 30 days.

There is still no word on a Western release for Phantasy Star Online 2 on either PC or PS4. There was a glimmer of hope when the IP block on the Southeast Asian version was removed but this was only temporary. SEGA have still yet to announce any sort of cancellation either.
