A Shining Resonance statue has been announced for release in Japan.

Part of Japan’s Shining Beach Heroines range, the new statue will be on sale on the 12th of November and it will set you back 16,800 yen (around £96).

You can see a preview video of the statue below. Enjoy a rotating lady in a bikini (you might not want to be caught watching this in the office):

YouTube Channel: Mickey Mania for Mega-CD

July 9th, 2014

A new video went live on our YouTube channel last night. This time we take a look at Traveller’s Tales Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse. Originally released for Mega Drive and SNES in 1994, an enhanced Mega-CD port came the following year and it’s this version we’re looking at in the video. Take a look:

Project Diva F 2nd Gets English Subtitles for Western Release

July 3rd, 2014

The Western release of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd will receive English subtitles for the song lyrics instead of the phonetic Japanese subtitles that were available in the previous game. You can check out a glimpse of the translated lyrics in the trailer below:

While it’s nice that SEGA have made the effort to give English-speaking players translated song lyrics, it kind of defeats the object of the game as the button presses are timed with the Japanese syllables so fingers crossed the phonetic lyrics are still available.

Merchandise: Kickstart the Mega-Bit SEGA Cartridge Figures Officially Endorsed by SEGA

July 3rd, 2014

Mega-Bit are releasing a range of figurines based on anthropomorphised SEGA Mega Drive (Genesis for the Americans) cartridges featuring games such as Sonic the Hedgehog, The Revenge of Shinobi, Golden Axe and Altered Beast. If you want to get your hands on one you’ll have to back the Kickstarter that Mega-Bit are now running until the 1st of August.

A standard figure will set you back $35 with special coloured variants setting you back $50. The figures stand 4.5 inches tall and 7 inches wide so they’re a fairly decent size. If you want a Sonic figure you’d better consider backing the Kickstarter now because this is the only figure that will not be sold outside of the Kickstarter once it finishes.

You can visit the Mega-Bit Kickstarter by clicking this link. There may be some other tier bonuses that take your fancy.

SEGA Opens Sonic-Specific YouTube Channel

July 3rd, 2014

All Sonic-related video content on YouTube has now been moved to its own channel courtesy of SEGA.

The new Western Sonic YouTube channel appears to be maintained for SEGA of America and while there is currently nothing exclusive to speak of I’m sure that will be remedied in due course.

You can access the new Sonic YouTube channel via this link:

Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai Remix Announced for Western Release

July 2nd, 2014

The 3DS title has been announced as a 5th anniversary release and will include new elements that were not previously available in Project Mirai 2. The game is due to launch some time in 2015.

More on this as it develops.

Feature: Julian Hazeldine’s Speedrun: The Unauthorised History of Sonic the Hedgehog

July 1st, 2014

Well isn’t this an interesting little revelation! Julian Hazeldine has produced a book entitled Speedrun: The Unauthorised History of Sonic the Hedgehog. Yes; an actual book! About Sonic!

Reading material about the Sonic franchise is pretty thin when you consider the only other book in this market is Pix’n Love’s The History of Sonic the Hedgehog so we happily welcome some competition. But is the book any good? You can find out in our SEGADriven exclusive review by clicking below.
