SEGADriven is a SEGA fan-site that focuses 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 latest news, features and updates to the site.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X HD, the PS4 port of the previously Vita exclusive rhythm game, is finally scheduled for a Japanese release on August 25th for PS4. We’ve also got a new trailer featuring a medley of songs from the game that you can watch below:
There is currently no word on whether the game will make it to Europe, but a US release for the game was confirmed for Autumn last month. Looks like a simultaneous worldwide launch might be on the cards if SEGA Europe decide to pull their finger out.
Data Discs have revealed they have plans to release the Panzer Dragoon soundtrack on vinyl. This title will join the vinyl release of the Out Run soundtrack as the only two releases from Data Discs currently scheduled for 2016. There are currently no details regarding release dates or colour-ways at this time.
In other news, Data Discs will restock their first release of the Streets of Rage soundtrack with copies on translucent red and black vinyl appearing on their store from May 1st at 5pm BST. Shenmue, Super Hang-On and Streets of Rage 2 are still available to purchase at this current time.
SEGA Europe has revealed a new collection of Mega Drive titles for Steam. The new collection is called SEGA Mega Drive Classics Hub and the main addition is that it wraps the games in a lovely nineties bedroom aesthetic that you can also customise. Additional games will be able to purchase in-game and any existing SEGA Mega Drive Classics you already own will be automatically added to the hub.
SEGA Mega Drive Hub includes the following features:
– Steam Workshop support that allows you to customise games and share them with other users
– Spot on emulation
– Local co-op on supported games
– Optional graphical filters

Alien Syndrome was resurrected in 2007 for a sequel to the 1987 arcade original that came to Wii and PSP. In our review of the Wii game, we discover if it was worth the effort of bringing back such a long-dead franchise and whether developer Totally Games had anything interesting to add to such a simple formula.

A long overdue update to Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 has finally arrived for iOS. We’ve had a quick muck around with the new version of the game this morning and found the following changes:
– Sonic’s character model is considerably more detailed and more closely resembles the home console versions (image comparisons below)
– All art assets are now of a much higher resolution which makes use of modern iOS retina displays. Menus and HUD items do still look a bit stretched
– The stage select screen now resembles the home console stage select screen that uses a map of Sonic’s world (image comparisons below)
– The gyro controls in the special stages are much smoother now
If you already own Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 for iOS, then you can get the game update from your App Store now.
Summer of Sonic will return on the 6th of August and is now seeking crowdfunding in order to make it happen. The event will take place at the ILEC Conference Centre in Earls Court, London UK.

Pledging towards the Summer of Sonic Kickstarter wields bonuses depending on the tier you choose. There are standard £20 tiers to guarantee entry as well as exclusive backer t-shirts that start at £15 (no entry ticket included). You can get a ticket and a t-shirt for £35.
There is also a very special VIP pass for £120 that allows you to get to the front of all queues (entry and signings) as well as meet the guests in a special meet and greet.
SEGA America will be bringing Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X to the US in Autumn 2016 for both PS Vita and PS4.
The latest title in the franchise only launched on PS Vita in Japan earlier this month, while the Japanese PS4 version was also scheduled for the third quarter of 2016 anyway. This could mean a worldwide release is scheduled for this title, similar to the launch of Project Mirai DX on 3DS. However, there is no official word on a European release at this time.
