7th Dragon III Code: VFD Coming to America

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

7thdragon3

Now here’s a game I never expected to see on Western shores!

SEGA America have committed to bringing 7th Dragon III Code: VFD to America. SEGA have never brought any 7th Dragon games to the West previously so this is quite a shock.

Developed by imageepoch, the games are produced by Rieko Kodama of Phantasy Star fame. The soundtracks are also produced by legendary SEGA composer Yuzo Koshiro. Take a look at the announcement trailer below:

7th Dragon III Code: VFD will lauch for 3DS in America this summer. There is currently no word on a European release.

SEGA 3D Classics Collection Announced for 3DS

Thursday, January 21st, 2016

sega3dclassicscollection

In a rather surprising turn of events, SEGA have committed to bringing the 3DS compilation title SEGA 3D Reprint Archives 2 to the West under the new name of SEGA 3D Classics Collection.

The collection bundles together the previously released M2 versions of 3D Sonic The Hedgehog, 3D Galaxy Force II, 3D Thunderblade, 3D Altered Beast, 3D Fantasy Zone II but with 2 exclusive ports of 3D Power Drift and 3D Puyo Puyo 2. Also included are two 3D Master System titles; Maze Walker and Fantasy Zone II.

Also confirmed are new SEGA 3DS themes. While no specifics are currently available outside a “coming soon” release date, we can assume that the Dreamcast console theme could well be one of them as SEGA have previously teased the release of that theme.

SEGA 3D Classics Collection launches on the 26th of April in America, exclusively for 3DS. There is currently no word on a European release.

3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 finally has a release date! The stereoscopic 3D remaster by M2 hits the 3DS eShop on the 8th of October.

Outside the obvious addition of stereoscopic 3D visuals, the only major change to this version of Sonic 2 comes with the ability to save anywhere and play multiplayer co-op or vs modes with each player on a dedicated device. Also included is a new unlockable Super Sonic mode which allows you to activate Super Sonic at any point in the game.

Sonic Boom Fire & Ice Release Delayed Until 2016

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

sonicboomfire

In what has to be a first for the Sonic franchise, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice will be delayed until 2016 so the game can be improved and fine-polished. There is currently no exact release date in 2016 other than, “it’ll be ready when it’s ready”.

The Sonic franchise is not well known for delays and generally when a release date is set for a game then it gets delivered in whatever state it’s in at the time. This has resulted in some pretty lackluster efforts like Sonic the Hedgehog ’06 and even last year’s Sonic Boom games Rise of Lyric and Shattered Crystal.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice was due to release on 3DS in quarter four this year and this delay marks one of the few occasions I feel a delay can really benefit a game. The Sonic franchise deserves more great entries and rush-releasing games has never been good practice for the blue blur. Fingers crossed Fire & Ice turns into a worthy entry in the franchise whenever it is that we next see it.

Glitch Results in Project Mirai DX Demo Being Playable Once for EU Players

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

projectmiraidxlogo

A demo for Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX has gone live on the North American and European 3DS eShops but a publishing glitch has resulted in a strict one use limit for European players. This probably won’t get fixed before the game’s full release.

The North American version suffers no problem with the standard 30 use limit being available. I’m still not sure why the 3DS eShop restricts the amount of uses a player can have with a demo anyway, but at least the North American audience can have a little longer with the demo before they decide to buy the full game.

Remember being able to keep demos? Good times. Anyway Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX launches on the 8th of September.
