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.

Model 2 Collection Announced for Japanese PSN/XBLA

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

SEGA of Japan are releasing Virtua Fighter 2, Sonic the Fighters, Virtua Striker, Fighting vipers and Cyber Troopers: Virtual-On for the Japanese XBLA and PSN services. Sonic the Fighters, Virtua Fighter and Fighting Vipers will be bundled together as a $15 3 game pack on PSN all with online versus modes. This pack will come out during Autumn 2012 while the others are due “winter 2013” but we think this might be a typo and it’s actually 2012.

More interestingly is the fact that Sonic the Fighters is an expanded version that makes Metal Sonic and Eggman playable as well as the dumped character Honey the Cat. Now that was unexpected!

Unfortunately there is no word on a Western release at this time.

Mysterious 2X5 Teaser Hints at SEGA Model 2 Arcade Games

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

The above trailer uploaded to SEGA of Japan’s YouTube Channel contains a series of video game sounds that make reference to Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers, Sonic the Fighters, Virtua Striker and Cyber Troopers: Virtual-On. The video is titled 2×5 and is more than likely referencing the SEGA Model 2 arcade board that these games were developed for.

The teaser ends with the message; “See you tomorrow!” Is this the rumoured XBLA/PSN re-releases of Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers and Sonic the Fighters? Hopefully we’ll find out “tomorrow”!

Rumour: Sonic the Fighters, Fighting Vipers and Virtua Fighter 2 Coming to XBLA

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

The USK release schedule page appears to have just leaked announcements for Sonic the Fighters, Fighting Vipers and Virtua Fighter 2 on X-Box Live Arcade.

All 3 games have received ratings on the site which could mean that HD remakes of these releases are planned for XBLA. There is currently no official word from SEGA but looking at their recent release habits with the likes of NiGHTS into dreams, Sonic Adventure 2 and Jet Set Radio all getting revived it could well become a reality.

More on this as we get it.
