M2’s SEGA Ages Ports of Thunder Force IV and Sonic the Hedgehog Now Available on Switch in EU

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

There’s been scarce mention of M2’s SEGA Ages ports making it to the West, but all of a sudden (and only the day after the Japanese launch), Sonic the Hedgehog and Thunder Force IV have landed on the Nintendo Switch’s eShop for Europe.

Each game is price €6.99 for Europe and £5.99 for UK. These ports are enhanced with development lead by M2 and contain new features like Sonic’s Mega Play mode from the arcade and the addition of the drop dash from Sonic Mania. Check out the launch trailer below:

Football Manager Touch 2018 Is Suddenly Out Now on Nintendo Switch

Friday, April 13th, 2018

After some not-so-subtle teasing from developers and a Korean Ratings Board listing, Football Manager Touch 2018 has been confirmed for Nintendo Switch – and it’s out today!

The game is now available on the Nintendo eShop, for £29.99. Football Manager Touch is the version of the game for smart devices, but with the Nintendo Switch version you get the option of docking into the Switch to watch the action play out on the big screen.

It’s great to see SEGA supporting the Switch with a variety of genres – and especially with a series as large as Football Manager.

Dreamcast/Saturn 3DS Themes Due This Week in EU

Monday, February 15th, 2016

dreamcast_saturn_3ds_theme1

The Dreamcast and SEGA Saturn console themes for 3DS are finally coming to Europe this Friday the 19th of February. Each theme will set you back £1.59 and come complete with sampled audio relevant to each console.

The European localisation has been especially impressive for previous SEGA console themes with the Mega Drive and Master System themes using sound and imagery relevant to the console’s release in the PAL regions. The same seems to have been applied to the Dreamcast theme which actually uses the blue swirl as opposed to the orange swirl used in America and Japan.

SEGA 3D Classics Collection Announced for 3DS

Thursday, January 21st, 2016

sega3dclassicscollection

In a rather surprising turn of events, SEGA have committed to bringing the 3DS compilation title SEGA 3D Reprint Archives 2 to the West under the new name of SEGA 3D Classics Collection.

The collection bundles together the previously released M2 versions of 3D Sonic The Hedgehog, 3D Galaxy Force II, 3D Thunderblade, 3D Altered Beast, 3D Fantasy Zone II but with 2 exclusive ports of 3D Power Drift and 3D Puyo Puyo 2. Also included are two 3D Master System titles; Maze Walker and Fantasy Zone II.

Also confirmed are new SEGA 3DS themes. While no specifics are currently available outside a “coming soon” release date, we can assume that the Dreamcast console theme could well be one of them as SEGA have previously teased the release of that theme.

SEGA 3D Classics Collection launches on the 26th of April in America, exclusively for 3DS. There is currently no word on a European release.

3dsonic2

3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 finally has a release date! The stereoscopic 3D remaster by M2 hits the 3DS eShop on the 8th of October.

Outside the obvious addition of stereoscopic 3D visuals, the only major change to this version of Sonic 2 comes with the ability to save anywhere and play multiplayer co-op or vs modes with each player on a dedicated device. Also included is a new unlockable Super Sonic mode which allows you to activate Super Sonic at any point in the game.

Glitch Results in Project Mirai DX Demo Being Playable Once for EU Players

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

projectmiraidxlogo

A demo for Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX has gone live on the North American and European 3DS eShops but a publishing glitch has resulted in a strict one use limit for European players. This probably won’t get fixed before the game’s full release.

The North American version suffers no problem with the standard 30 use limit being available. I’m still not sure why the 3DS eShop restricts the amount of uses a player can have with a demo anyway, but at least the North American audience can have a little longer with the demo before they decide to buy the full game.

Remember being able to keep demos? Good times. Anyway Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX launches on the 8th of September.
