Unreleased Master System/Game Gear Versions of Lemmings 2 The Tribes Dumped

May 17th, 2014

Unreleased versions of Lemmings 2: The Tribes have been released by SMS Power. The Master System and Game Gear versions of the game were completed and even sent to SEGA Power Magazine for review in 1994 but were cancelled due to the dwindling sales of SEGA’s 8 bit consoles and the high cost of cartridge production at the time.

You can get the ROM dumps for both versions of the game by registering at SMS Power. You will need an emulator to play the ROMs. Click the below links to be taken to the entries on SEGA Power:

The first screenshots and art of PS3 RPG Shining Resonance have appeared. The above gallery showcases some of the games weapons, dragons and multi-character battles.

The main character is a dragon called Irvan and the other party members can use musical instruments to aid him in battle. Don’t ask us how that works.

Hypertension Due For Release On Dreamcast This Year

May 16th, 2014

Hypertension: Harmony of Darkness has been a long time coming, but the first person shooter from TDGMods is due to release later this year on Dreamcast through Goat Store.

Hypertension is unique among indie Dreamcast releases in that it uses 3D graphics. The game pays homage to classic FPSs like Doom and Quake and bizarrely features the first video game appearance of David Firth’s character Salad Fingers. Check out the latest game trailer below:

Shining Resonance Announced for PS3

May 14th, 2014

A new game in the Shining series has been revealed in Weekly Famitsu. The new title is an action RPG from Media.Vision; the creators of Wild ARMs. The new game features a dragon as the game’s protagonist and the game will be themed around “dragons and musical instruments”.

Random encounters appear to be out in favour of a seamless transition between the game’s overworld and battles. A party of up to 4 characters can be taken into battle.

As with most games in the Shining franchise, a Western release has not been announced and will probably not happen.

SEGA Tunes: Audio Sprite’s Charity Remix Album

May 13th, 2014

Audio Sprite is currently in the process of creating a video game/kids TV remix album with the proceeds going towards CLIC Sargent, a charity for children’s cancer.

In a rather moving gesture which was inspired by the loss of a friend’s 11 year old brother, Audio Sprite has remixed a selection of SEGA classics which includes a Yu Suzuki medley and remixes of songs from Sonic CD and Shenmue. You can check out the work-in-progress album below:

If you think the album is worth a donation then you can visit Audio Sprite’s JustGiving page and help out a good cause.

New Stages Discovered in Sonic 2 Remastered

May 11th, 2014

Yes, we’re pretty late to this news but I think it’s worth sharing because I love hidden little oddities.

2 additional stages have been discovered lurking in the source code for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Remastered for iOS. The first is Egg Gauntlet Zone which basically acts as a boss rush. You can see footage of it below:

Sadly this zone is no longer playable as a recent update removed removed the stage’s art assets.

Next up is Proto Palace Zone. This stage recreates a faithful yet completable version of Hidden Palace Zone that was featured in the Simon Wai Sonic 2 Beta ROM. What’s more interesting about this stage is it can still be accessed to regular owners of the game. Here’s some instructions on how to do this:

1) Access the Sonic 2 level select code by tapping the letters in the SEGA logo from left to right, then put two fingers on the title screen.
2) Enter the debug code 01,09,09,02,01,01,02,04 into the sound test section.
3) Then follow this with this code: 03,03,03,0B,10,10,10,04

You can also check out footage of this zone in action below:

There are currently no plans to bring Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax to the West and a console version has not been announced. TOUGH LUCK LOSERS
