SEGA are publishing the new Guilty Gear game. The game is titled Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign and is the first in the series to use the Unreal Engine as well as polygonal graphics instead of sprites. Check out the rather stunning announcement trailer below:
Arc System Works fighters generally launch in the arcade before they receive a home console release so as a system wasn’t announced in the trailer we can assume this is arcade exclusive for the time being.
Project Diva Arcade is receiving 3 new songs in an update with one curious entry being a remix of Like the Wind from the Power Drift soundtrack. The in game promotional video for the song also gives you a fascinating insight into what a HD remake of Power Drift could look like. Check it out in the video below. Like the Wind starts at 2:09:
Japan exclusive arcade title Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Arcade is receiving an update on March 19th which adds 3 new songs; 39, Senbonzakura and a rather spectacular After Burner II remix. Check the video below to hear clips of the 3 songs in action:
Developed by SEGA’s Amusement Vision team, F-Zero GX was released in 2003 for the Gamecube under the supervision of Nintendo. The game was developed side-by-side with the rare arcade game F-Zero AX which includes exclusive tracks and a focus on timed gameplay. The arcade version was developed on the Triforce board which was jointly developed by Nintendo, SEGA and Namco.
In a bizarre turn of events, hackers have discovered that the complete version of F-Zero AX is hidden deep within F-Zero GX and is now accessible via action replay codes which you can get below. You can also see the game in action via the following video:
Border Break is a Japan exclusive, third-person, mecha fighting game that is hugely popular in its’ native country. Machines are linked together for LAN multiplayer which can result in matches like the one below which includes a massive 20 players duking it out. Watch the chaos ensue here:
Today’s SEGA Tunes feature is on the wonderful gameplay theme from SEGA’s Enduro Racer. We’re starting with the Master System version because quite simply it’s the better of the two:
For those of you that didn’t know, Enduro Racer started life as a parallax scrolling arcade racer similar to other SEGA racers like Hang-On. The difference here is that the game throws steep inclines and jumps at you to add some variety to the gameplay. The gameplay theme makes its’ first appearance here but the arcade version’s soundchip generally makes it sound a lot weaker than the Master System version:
Sadly we can’t seem to find any fan remixes of this gem, but if any of our readers would like to suggest some we will happily feature them on the next SEGA Tunes feature!
SEGA of Japan’s arcade-exclusive game Shining Force Cross Elysion has received a version C upgrade which means SEGA have decided to plug that with a new trailer. The game is a sort of LAN RPG made for multiplayer; check it out:
The arcade iteration of SEGA’s Japanese smash hit Hatsune Miku: Project Diva series is being location tested in a Round 1 arcade in Puente Hills, California.
The 2 machines are available for public play until March 18th. Hopefully this means SEGA has realised there’s huge Western appeal for this series and we might finally get to see it being localised for Western audiences.
