SEGA Fes 2018 Starts Tomorrow in Japan, Announcement Teased

Friday, April 13th, 2018

Tomorrow (April 14th), SEGA’s two day SEGA FES 2018 event starts at the Bellesalle Akihabara in Tokyo – and SEGA of America have actually made note of the event, teasing a huge announcement SEGA fans “won’t want to miss”.

It was already stated that some kind of announcement would be made at the event, but previous announcements of this sort have been targeted more towards a Japanese audience (such as the reveal of SEGA AM2’s Soul Reverse for arcades). SEGA America’s promotion of the announcement is a surprise – and indicates something major could be on the way. (more…)

When Tracker isn’t playing SEGA games, he’s talking about SEGA games. Or drawing about SEGA games. Or being a student that does all of the above. You can also catch him over on Twitter.

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.

New Yakuza Title “Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin” Announced

Monday, August 19th, 2013

A new entry in the Yakuza series has been revealed! Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin is the name of the latest title but apart from that and the above piece of artwork we have no details as to what the new game will feature or what platforms it will be released on.

The artwork seems to suggest another romp through feudal Japan similar to Ryu Ga Gotoku Kenzan! but only time will tell. More on this as we get it.

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Summer of Sonic and Sonic Boom return in 2013!

Summer of Sonic will be taking place in London, UK at the Westminster Central Hall on August 3rd.

Sonic Boom will be taking place in St. Louis, MO, USA at The Pageant on August 10th. Doors open at 5pm.

More details regarding ticketing and event specifics will be announced soon.

A final word from myself: some of you may or may not know that I have been a member of staff at Summer of Sonic for the past 5 years, but sadly I will not be able to staff or attend this year’s event. If you are a Sonic fan then please make sure you attend Summer of Sonic as it has been one of the greatest experiences of my life and has enabled me to meet loads of new people and make a whole heap of new friends.

Good luck to the team this year (and the chap/chapette who gets to take on my job!) and I’m sure it will be as brilliant as ever!
