Review: SEGA Game Pack 4 in 1

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

cover

SEGA Game Pack 4 in 1 is a 1992 Europe exclusive compilation title that was bundled with Game Gear consoles as a very obvious way for SEGA to show off the system’s superiority to Nintendo’s Game Boy. You are given four alternatives to some of the Game Boy’s biggest hitters, but they’re now powered by the Game Gear’s colour display.

SEGA Japan’s YouTube channel has unleashed a trailer for 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2, the upcoming M2 port for 3DS. If you have a 3D-enabled display you can view the trailer in its intended stereoscopic 3D format. Check it out below:

3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 launches in the West in September this year for the 3DS eShop. It will feature a new Ring Keep mode which halves the amount of rings you lose every time you get hit.

New Ring Keep Mode Revealed for 3D Sonic 2

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

A new mode called Ring Keep has been revealed for the 3DS port of Sonic 2.

3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will now feature a mode that allows you to start a stage with 10 rings but every time you take damage the amount of rings you lose are halved. This also means the amount of rings you’re allowed to scrape back after a hit is greatly reduced. It’s an interesting addition that should make for some challenging gameplay for seasoned players.

Also announced is 2 player co-op and versus modes will be available to play through wireless connectivity but both players will need their own copy of 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The game will have the standard M2 features of quick saves and the option to play the Japanese or international version of the game.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice Revealed

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

SEGA have revealed a new Sonic Boom game to be released later this year exclusively on 3DS. Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice is a sequel to Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal and developed once again by Sanzaru Games. You can view the announcement trailer below:

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal were the worst selling Sonic games in the history of the franchise. I can only assume the reason for this follow-up is because SEGA has invested a lot in the cartoon and all the merchandising off-shoots that have followed. In all honesty I’m glad we’re getting a sequel to Shattered Crystal as it was the most playable of the two original Sonic Boom games. I would’ve preferred Streets of Rage 4 though.
