Video Spotlight: Sonic the Hedgehog to Appear in Lego Dimensions

June 9th, 2016

legodimensions

Sonic the Hedgehog will be making his way into Lego Dimensions. A new trailer that confirms additions for the second year of the game’s existence has revealed that Adventure Time, Ghostbusters, Gremlins, E.T. and most importantly, Sonic the Hedgehog himself will be playable in the game. This obviously means a Lego mini-fig of Sonic is also in the works. Check out Sonic’s reveal in the below trailer:

There are no details as to what Sonic’s appearance in Lego Dimensions fully entails. We don’t know whether Sonic’s addition will come as a part of a story pack, level pack, team pack or fun pack and we don’t know what additional characters from the Sonic franchise will also be appearing. The above artwork does hint that Sonic’s vehicle might be the Tornado if that little bi-plane next to Voldemort is anything to go by. We’ll update this story with more details as we get them.

Video Spotlight: It’s the First Sonic Boom Fire & Ice Trailer Since the Delay!

June 8th, 2016

sonicboomfire

E3 is right around the corner and now we’ve got a brand new E3 trailer of Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice for the 3DS. This is the first look at the game since it was delayed for a year to give it, “the time and polish needed”. Has the delay been worth it? You be the judge:

That definitely looks like a sequel to Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal to me.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice launches on 3DS in September this year. Those lucky Americans can also pre-order a special edition which comes with a bonus DVD that contains some select episodes of the TV show.

Motosport Manager Coming to PC/Mac/Linux This September

May 18th, 2016

motorsport-manager

SEGA have revealed that Playsport Games’ F1 management sim Motorsport Manager will launch on PC, Mac and Linux this September.

Previously available on mobile platforms, the game has been rebuilt from the ground up to make use of the extra hardware grunt that PCs can offer and it’s a considerably more feature-rich and prettier experience as a result.

You can watch the reveal trailer below:

SEGA 3D Classics Collection Confirmed for EU Release

May 11th, 2016

sega3dclassicscollection

In the latest edition of SEGA Europe’s SEGA Central YouTube series, community manager Dan Sheridan has confirmed that SEGA 3D Classics Collection will come to Europe and the delay to its launch in this region is, “subject to approval submissions”.

Sheridan couldn’t confirm a release date for the game but confirmation that it is coming to Europe is certainly a big step forward for SEGA Europe who have generally been quite late on the uptake of releasing games the American branch of SEGA have already committed to.

You can watch the latest episode of SEGA Central below. It also includes an unboxing of the new Europa Edition of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered which launches on the 17th of this month:

Dawn of War III Revealed for PC

May 3rd, 2016

dawnofwar3

SEGA and Relic Entertainment have just revealed Dawn of War III for PC. You can check out the announcement trailer for the latest in the RTS franchise below:

No release date has been revealed at this time but there’s a lot of hyperbole from executive producer Stephen MacDonald who has said, “this is the Dawn of War that fans have been waiting for. Our biggest units ever? Check. Giant orbital lasers? Check. Base-building, epic heroes, huge battles, it’s all in there. Get ready for the biggest Dawn of War yet. For the Emperor!”
