Valkyria Chronicles 4 for Nintendo Switch Delayed to Fall – But Valkyria Chronicles 1 is Now Coming to Switch Too

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

As of the Valkyria Chronicles 4 panel at SEGA Fes, SEGA has unfortunately announced that the game’s Switch edition has been delayed to the Fall.

However, it’s not all bad! Presumably as some show of apology, SEGA has announced the original Valkyria Chronicles is now coming to Switch. Those who pre-order Valkyria Chronicles 4 on the Nintendo eShop can get the original game for only 540 yen in the Fall, which isn’t a bad deal! Valkyria Chronicles 1 will be Digital only on Switch.

Currently all this information is true of Japan, but we’ll let you know if SEGA’s Western branches comment on it.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life delayed to April 17th, Demo Announced

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life has been delayed in The Americas and Europe to April 17th, from its original release date of March 20th.

The delay was revealed in a tweet from the official Yakuza Twitter account, but there was some good news with the bad too – on February 27th, the game will be getting a PSN demo. Progress made in the demo will also be carried over to the full game, giving a great incentive to those who are already dead-set on buying the game regardless.

Delays are always a bit of a shame, but if it results in a better product at the end, there’s no qualms here – and SEGA have promised to fill the void with some fresh Yakuza content in the meantime, too. Roll on April 17th!

Sonic Boom Fire & Ice Release Delayed Until 2016

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

sonicboomfire

In what has to be a first for the Sonic franchise, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice will be delayed until 2016 so the game can be improved and fine-polished. There is currently no exact release date in 2016 other than, “it’ll be ready when it’s ready”.

The Sonic franchise is not well known for delays and generally when a release date is set for a game then it gets delivered in whatever state it’s in at the time. This has resulted in some pretty lackluster efforts like Sonic the Hedgehog ’06 and even last year’s Sonic Boom games Rise of Lyric and Shattered Crystal.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice was due to release on 3DS in quarter four this year and this delay marks one of the few occasions I feel a delay can really benefit a game. The Sonic franchise deserves more great entries and rush-releasing games has never been good practice for the blue blur. Fingers crossed Fire & Ice turns into a worthy entry in the franchise whenever it is that we next see it.

Phantasy Star Online 2 Delayed in the West Due to Localisation Issues

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Phantasy Star Online 2’s Western release has been delayed from its’ original “early 2013” status due to issues surrounding the localisation.

A SEGA representitive has been quoted with, “Originally slated for an early 2013 launch, Sega can officially confirm that PS02 has been delayed. We don’t have any specifics but will update everyone as soon as there are more details to share.”

So that’s a bummer. The free-to-play PC version is available to play in Japanese but those hoping for an English-friendly version of the game (or an English version of the PS Vita release for that matter), they’re going to have to wait.

Rumours That Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii-U Has Been Cancelled “Not True”

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Eurogamer have reached out to SEGA for a comment regarding internet rumours that Aliens: Colonial Marines has been cancelled for Wii-U.

Their response? “It’s not true. We haven’t announced the release date for it yet but that’s it.”

Rumours began last night when Kotaku writer Jason Schreier left a comment saying, “We heard from a tipster about a month ago that the Wii U version had been ‘postponed indefinitely’. We reached out to Sega, and they denied it. I’ll let you guys fill in the blanks there. :)”

SEGA had previously announced that the game was due out in the “launch window” for the Wii-U which lasts up to March. Fingers crossed this is still the case.

NeoGAF users have also noticed that the game’s Amazon listing has also disappeared.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Delayed for Wii-U

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Aliens: Colonial Marines will not be making it to the Wii-U on February 12th.

SEGA have insisted that Aliens: Colonial Marines was never due for release on the Wii-U on February 12th. Eurogamer have quoted SEGA saying, “the Wii U version is due out in the Wii U launch window”. The Wii-U launch window runs up to March 2013.

SEGA have not released a hard release date for the Wii-U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines at this time. The Wii-U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines is being developed by Demiurge Studios and not Gearbox Software.

3DS/Vita/PC Version of ASR: Transformed Delayed

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Steve Lycett from Sumo Digital has confirmed a delay on the 3DS, PS Vita and PC versions of Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed. SEGA had originally slated the release for November 16th but Lycett has said:

“Given we’re still working on it, 16th November UK release is unlikely. I think SEGA either have or are due to announce the handheld dates over here, they’re slightly later than the home console versions.”

So sad times if you wanted to get those versions on November 16th. More on this story when SEGA decide to announce the corrected dates.

A Quick Update Regarding the Status of the Website

Friday, September 7th, 2012

Hello everyone, Sonic Yoda here. A friend of mine suggested I keep you all in the know as to why the site has been quiet for such a long period of time and I thought that was quite a good idea!

So on the 28th of July I moved home and even though I’ve been in the new place for over a month me and my flat-mate are still sorting the last few things out. The main one is obviously the internet.

With any luck we should be live soon but there’s some strange fault with my line (apparently) so even though I should’ve gone live on Tuesday (4/9/12) I’m still having endless calls with my provider to get things sorted.

We have some cool content for you when we’re back though so don’t think we’ve been slacking. I have a feature video that includes all my favourite games from this year’s SAGE to still upload and then we’ll be doing another collaborative video with The Community Spotlight.

Once again, apologies for the long period of dead-time but hopefully we should be live and kicking again soon!

Anarchy Reigns to be Released in the West in Quarter 1 2013

Monday, June 18th, 2012

After the scare that was brought on us by Platinum Games who revealed that the Western division of SEGA appeared to have gone silent regarding the release of Anarchy Games in Western territories despite being fully localised, the game finally has a new release window. Unfortunately despite the game coming out on July 5th in Japan (where it is known as Max Anarchy), the game will be released in the West in quarter 1 2013.

A SEGA representitive on Twitter announced today that “the release of Anarchy Reigns has been re-evaluated. We now expect to launch in Europe and America in Q1 of 2013.” No other reasons were given for the delay.

This news will obviously be bittersweet for fans of Platinum Games; while it’s obviously nice that the game will still be released in the West, it’s a bit of a shame we have to wait so long for a game that is already localised.
