Virtua Racing is Coming to Nintendo Switch Under the SEGA Ages Header

Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

The next title in the SEGA Ages line of Nintendo Switch ports will be Virtua Racing.

Virtua Racing hasn’t received a home console port since the PS2 remake that was included in the SEGA Classics Collection and SEGA Ages 2500 line in 2004. Once again, M2 will be handling development duties but there is currently no set release date.

See below for the first screenshots of Virtua Racing in action on the Switch:

Virtua Racing joins Sonic the Hedgehog and Thunder Force IV in the Nintendo Switch’s SEGA Ages line. Future SEGA Ages releases also include Phantasy Star, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Gain Ground, Space Harrier, Out Run, Columns II, Thunder Force AC and Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

First Look at House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn in Action | Video Spotlight

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

The lovely people over at ThrowBack Tokyo have recorded some extensive off-screen footage of House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn in action at the recent location test in Akihabara. As the footage shows, it’s very much the House of the Dead sequel we’ve all been waiting for, complete with campy voice acting and over-the-top, zombie-shooting action. Like The House of Dead 4, the violence has been toned down somewhat, with the zombies now burning away when they’re dispatched. However, the amount of on-screen zombies has been drastically increased. Click the embed below to see for yourself:

Border Break Finally Getting a PS4 Port in 2018

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

Almost 9 years after its initial release in arcades, AM2’s mech action game, Border Break is finally getting a home console port for the PS4.

Border Break first released for SEGA’s RingEdge arcade board in 2009 and despite receiving many reiterations, has stayed arcade exclusive until now. While there is no firm release date at the moment, SEGA Japan are promising a release at some point in 2018. There is currently no word on a wider release for US and European markets.

SEGA Tunes: Out Run Soundtracks Available to Download from Amazon

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

3 new soundtrack collections of Out Run music have appeared on Amazon.

The 3 collections also feature the new songs by Manabu Namiki and Chibi-Tech that were added to 3D Out Run which is currently Japan exclusive. We can only hope that their inclusion in these collections means a Western release is on the cards.

Volume 1 contains music from Out Run, 3D Out Run and Turbo Out Run, volume 2 contains the full soundtrack to OutRunners and volume 3 contains the full soundtracks to all the iterations of Out Run 2.

Out Run – Original Soundtrack, Vol. 1
Out Run – Original Soundtrack, Vol. 2
Out Run – Original Soundtrack, Vol. 3

Each collection is priced at $9.49 and is digital only.
