Boxed Printing of Unreleased Mega Drive DICE Shooter ‘Ultracore’ Coming to Japan

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

Columbus Circle are back once again with a new boxed Mega Drive game and this time its the infamously cancelled Ultracore by DICE. Ultracore is also included as a bonus built-in game with Analogue’s recently released Mega SG systems, but this will be the first time the game has received a boxed pressing, alongside the (now sold out) boxed Mega Drive version that Strictly Limited Games are running.

It can be pre-ordered from Amazon Japan now for ¥9,650, about £71.82 at the current exchange rate.

Columbus Circle have previously released newly boxed Mega Drive games in the form of 16-Bit Rhythm Land and Advanced Busterhawk Gleylancer.

Gley Lancer Goes Back into Print for the First Time in 27 Years

Saturday, April 13th, 2019

Legendary side-scrolling shoot-em-up Advanced Busterhawk Gley Lancer is getting a reprint 27 years after its initial release for the Mega Drive. This new run will release on the 6th of June 2019 and pre-orders can be placed on Amazon Japan right now. It’s not a cheap item though. Pre-orders are priced at 11,966 yen which currently converts to around £81.70 in British sterling. Regardless, this is still substantially cheaper than the current resale value of an original print copy.

This new print is not officially sanctioned by SEGA and comes courtesy of the people at Columbus Circle, who previously released Rhythm Land for the Mega Drive in February.

New Mega Drive Rhythm Game ‘Rhythm Land’ Due for Release Spring 2019

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

Japanese publisher Columbus Circle is releasing a new Mega Drive game called Rhythm Land. The title kind of gives it away, but this is a rhythm game in the Rhythm Heaven mould that features varied environments to interact with, all to the rhythm of a song. The soundtrack even features music from Yuzo Koshiro. Check out the trailer below which also features footage of the 8 bit version of Rhythm Land which is available for Famicom:

The game is due to release on the 15th of February 2019 and can be pre-ordered now through Amazon Japan for ¥6458 (roughly £45 at time of writing).
