SEGA Looking Into Re-Releasing Shenmue 1&2

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

shenmue

Sega’s European marketing director Jon Rooke has confirmed that SEGA are, “exploring ways to re-release the original two Shenmue titles.”

This is by no means a confirmation that the re-releases are going to happen, but this public confirmation that the company are at least making an attempt to bring the games out of retirement is certainly a positive one.

Fingers crossed a new generation of gaming fans get to play the original two Shenmue titles before the third game drops on the projected release date of December 2017.

Putty-Squad-Wallpaper

An unreleased Mega Drive version of System 3’s long-delayed Putty sequel Putty Squad has been dumped and is available to download now. Click here to try the game for yourself.

Putty Squad was originally due for release on Amiga in 1994 but went unpublished until 2013 when it was given a new lick of paint and released on PS4, PS Vita, PS3, 3DS, XBLA and PC. This Mega Drive version would have been made around 1995 and like the Amiga version, even made it to review in certain publications.

Yakuza 5 May Well Be Launching on November 5th if These PSN Avatars Are Anything to Go By

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

yakuza5logo

You can now pre-order Yakuza 5-themed avatars on the PSN store. The pre-order date? 5th of November. Could this be a clue as to the game’s Western release date? Quite possibly.

The avatars are actually marked as Yakuza 5-themed items and you can pre-order them by clicking here. Why you’d want to pre-order tiny images for 25p is beyond me but that’s a thing you can do if you’re losing your grip on reality. Happy times!

Yakuza 5 should launch exclusively on PS3 via the PSN store on November 5th. Should.

The Sonic Lost World PC Port is the First in a String of New SEGA PC Ports

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

segapc

If the surprise announcement that Sonic Lost World was finding its way to PC wasn’t exciting enough then you’ll be pleased to know that SEGA are also planning to release more of their games on PC “in the coming months and years”.

John Clark, VP of Commercial Publishing for SEGA Europe has said, “This is the latest in a string of high quality PC ports of past SEGA titles that we will be building on in the coming months and years.” SEGA seems to have its sights set on expanding its business in the PC gaming category which makes sense when you remember that the PC release of Valkyria Chronicles became a bit of a surprise hit for SEGA.

There is currently no word on what games will be making their way to PC but hopefully it means more of SEGA’s console exclusives like Resonance of Fate, Sonic Colours and Vanquish get a wider release.
