cosmofighter

The extremely rare 1993 Sonic-themed shooting game SEGASonic Cosmo Fighter Galaxy Patrol has finally been dumped and is now available to play within the MAME emulator. The ROM file itself has not been released so it still might be some time before the public can play it, but if the anonymous contributor does release the ROM file then it’ll be instantly available to play in the latest version of MAME.

The game is a hybrid children’s ride/shoot-em-up cabinet that tilts when you activate the “SPEED UP” ability. Take a look at some gameplay on the actual cabinet below:

New SEGASonic Bros. Screenshot Shows Multi-Coloured Sonics in Action

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

segasonicbros

We’ve finally got a screen of SEGASonic Bros. that shows the multi-coloured Sonics that appear on the title screen, but actually in action.

While we’ve previously seen screens of different coloured balls on the game’s play-field (see below), the multi-coloured Sonics that appear on the title screen hadn’t previously been shown in game. From the above screenshot we can see the multi-coloured Sonics are actually used in play. We can only assume that turn into balls when placed or scored.

ShouTime has also uploaded an image of a Sonic the Hedgehog rucksack which is tagged with ‘SEGASonic Bros’. It’s not confirmed but this could be a piece of merchandise that was tied into the release of the game, but it doesn’t explicitly state this on the actual rucksack.

The discovery of a long lost Sonic arcade game has been quite the talking point in the SEGA community as of late! After some speculation as to what SEGASonic Bros. actually contains, we can now confirm the game was actually a puzzle game in the style of Cleopatra Fortune.

Unreleased Sonic Arcade Game SEGASonic Bros. Discovered

Friday, February 5th, 2016

segasonicbros01

In one of the most surprising discoveries in recent memory, an unreleased 1992 Sonic arcade game called SEGASonic Bros. has been revealed by Tumblr user ShouTime.

The game appears to be a puzzle game that was location tested but sadly failed said test. ShouTime, the user responsible for discovering the game’s arcade board, is also the person responsible for the ROM dump of the SEGASonic Popcorn Shop that was made available back in October 2015.

Another image of the game and some further information was also released by ShouTime. This information confirms that the game was developed by Bubble Bobble creator Fukio Mitsuji and the second screenshot shows a menu screen that bares surprising similarities to Puzzle Bobble:

SEGAbits have also discovered mention of the game from an old issue of EGM. The article details a few announcements regarding various Sonic games, including a comment that mentions an upcoming arcade game that, “invites multiple players to assume the role of different colored Sonics”.

Furthermore, a Sonic Retro forum user called Black Squirrel has also discovered mention of another unreleased Sonic arcade game in a different issue of EGM. The extract says, “We have developed two Sonic arcade games that have never been released because they were not the specialness that Sonic was”.

Fingers crossed ShouTime reveals further information about the game in due course!
