Fan Scene: Sonic 3 Complete Hack Restores Sonic 3 to its Original Design

September 21st, 2014

A team of enthusiastic Sonic hackers have created a version of Sonic 3 that restores the game to its originally intended design.

The hacking team consisting of Tiddles, Neo, That One Jig, ValleyBell, Flamewing and Hayate have created Sonic 3 Complete. This version of Sonic 3 arranges the stages in the way they are displayed in the original Sonic 3 level select screen. It also restores the Big Arms boss that is excluded when you play Sonic 3 & Knuckles and a new cut-scene has been added at the end of Launch Base to help make the narrative more coherent.

Various other small changes have also been made to create a more cohesive Sonic 3 experience in the style of the game’s original design before development lead to the 2 halves of the game being split into 2 separate cartridges. It’s a wonderful little project and you can download a copy of the ROM from the project’s official website. You will need to find a Mega Drive emulator to play the thing.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Releasing in November

September 19th, 2014

A release date for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax has finally been confirmed for Europe. The PS3 and Xbox 360 fighting game will launch in November.

An exact date has yet to be determined but looking at SEGA’s release schedule for November it might be safe to assume the 21st will be the date seeing how Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, Shattered Crystal and Project Diva F 2nd are all releasing on that same day.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is the first Atlus game to be published by SEGA in Europe since the company’s acquisition back in February.
