Ports of Fighting Vipers and Motor Raid to Appear in Project Judge

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Project Judge (also known as Judge Eyes in Japan) will feature some interesting SEGA arcade titles in its in-game arcades.

First up we have a fresh port of AM2’s 1995 fighting game Fighting Vipers, which has previously appeared on Saturn as well as receiving modern HD ports for Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2012.

The more interesting announcement is that 1997’s Motor Raid is receiving a port. This futuristic, motorcycle racing game features combat similar to Road Rash and this port will be the first time it’s ever appeared on a home system. Interested in how this plays? Our buddies at Saturn Memories did a video on it a while back:

Project Judge will release as Judge Eyes in Japan on the 13th of December 2018 for PS4. It is an original title from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios set in the same world as the Yakuza franchise. A Western release is scheduled for sometime in 2019.

Unreleased SEGASonic Bros. Arcade Game Playable at California Extreme Arcade Show

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

It’s been a while since we last heard about the unreleased SEGASonic Bros. arcade game that was discovered by Tumblr user ShouTime, but it appears he’s bringing the game to the California Extreme arcade show this weekend.

The game will be fully playable at the show, specifically at the exA-Arcadia booth. Hopefully an attendee will see fit to film the game in action so we can finally see some off-screen footage of it. Currently there’s only a selection of screenshots from ShouTime himself available to view online.

California Extreme takes place on the 28th and 29th of July. Full details can be obtained via the official website. Tickets are available on the door.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World and Gain Ground Join SEGA AGES for Switch Line-Up

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

Two additional games have been announced for the upcoming SEGA AGES releases for Nintendo Switch – Alex Kidd in Miracle World, and Gain Ground.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World is the second Master System title to be announced, while Gain Ground marks the first arcade game announcement for the series.

Currently, all is known is that they’ll be part of the collection, with no details divulged as far as extra features. However, we’d be surprised if Gain Ground didn’t take advantage of the Switch’s potential for Tate Mode!

It’s also been revealed that Sonic 1 will include the Mega Play arcade version, and that Phantasy Star will inherit its features from the PS2 AGES Collection release.

The games will start being released in Summer, with a simultaneous worldwide release planned.

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:
