Everything You Need to Know About Sonic Boom

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

Lots of Sonic news coming out of New York today! At a press event called “2014: Year of Sonic”, SEGA properly revealed a new animated series called Sonic Boom featuring new character designs for Sonic the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna, Tails the Fox, Amy Rose and Dr Eggman. You can see the new character designs below:

Along with the character reveal, a trailer for the series was also uploaded. Take a look at Sonic in battle with Dr Eggman’s Burnbot and with Tails providing some bizarre lazer-whip thingy that I don’t quite understand at this time:

To tie in with the series, SEGA are publishing a tie-in video game as well. The real shock comes in the choice of developers. Sonic Team will NOT be handling the Sonic Boom game. The Wii-U version will be developed by Big Red Button Entertainment (a new studio) and Sanzaru Games on 3DS (famous for various Sly Raccoon games). Check out the announcement trailer for the game below:

Screenshots for the Sonic Boom game can also be found in this gallery over at The Sonic Stadium.

Also confirmed is that the Sonic Boom continuity does not mess with the “official” Sonic the Hedgehog canon. The Sonic you know and love from games like Sonic Lost World, Generations and Colours belongs to the official canon with the Sonic from Sonic Boom existing in an alternate universe. Basically Sonic Boom does not replace the Sonic you currently know.

More Hero Bank Details Emerge

Monday, December 30th, 2013

SEGA Japan’s 3DS fighting RPG Hero Bank is due for release on March 20th 2014 and some new details about the game, some of its mechanics and the plot have been revealed.

- The main character Kaito Gosho has a one billion yen debt to pay off and that’s why he enters the wrestling world to earn the money
- Kaito meets a character called Sennen who teaches him to “enter the gold”. This becomes a technique that helps Kaito gain incredible speed during battle used for bigger combos and collecting money littered around the ring
- During the “enter the gold” mode Kaito does less damage as a trade off to his increased speed
- There are also special moves that can be purchased during the “enter the gold” mode called God Speed and Mega Crash Fumes

3D After Burner II Coming to Japanese 3DS eShop Next Week

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Japan are getting a second wave of 3DS SEGA classics! The first in the series will be After Burner II which launches December 18th, but obviously only for Japan at this time.

From what I can gather from the official website the new version adds:

- Gyro controls
- Stereoscopic 3D visuals
- A stage select
- A music player which can be used in game

The other interesting thing is that this port is based on the arcade version and not the Mega Drive version.
