New ‘Sonic Racing’ Game by Hardlight Revealed in Apple Arcade Announcement

Tuesday, March 26th, 2019

A new Sonic racing game by Hardlight has been unveiled during the Apple Arcade reveal.

Simply called Sonic Racing, this new title will be launched exclusively on the Apple Arcade service, which allows users to pay a subscription fee and play up to 100 games on any Apple device.

There is currently very little in the way of in-game assets related to the Sonic Racing title. A brief section of the Sonic Generations introduction sequence was shown in the below Apple Arcade preview video, and an image on the Apple Arcade website that seems to suggest Sonic Racing will follow the vehicular racing style of Sumo Digital’s Sonic and SEGA racing titles. A closer look at the in-game visuals has been showcased via an image on the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account (see below):

Apple Arcade launches on all Apple devices in Autumn 2019.

SEGA Mobile Crossover Puzzler ‘SEGA Heroes’ is Out Today

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

SEGA have released a brand new mobile title today called SEGA Heroes. The game is a Bejeweled-like puzzler with RPG elements and an abundance of characters from various classic SEGA franchises. Put together a team of up to 4 characters and battle it out to level up and gain power ups. You can play as characters from Sonic the Hedgehog, Golden Axe, Shinobi and Streets of Rage and all the characters have been drawn in a cartoony, big-head style that keeps things looking consistent. Check out the launch trailer below:

SEGA Heroes is out now on the Google Play store and iOS app store. The game is a free download but it supports in-app purchases.

Idola: Phantasy Star Saga Announced, RPG for Smartphones

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

After being teased just a few days ago,  SEGA has now announced Idola: Phantasy Star Saga, a new RPG title in the Phantasy Star series. The game is exclusive to iOS and Android devices, and will launch this year in Japan.

The game sees the resurrection of the amusingly-named “Dark Farce”, in a world ravaged by huge monsters named Idola. You’ll be using a “command-based battle system”, which SEGA intend to detail more in the future. Also confirmed are a slew of characters, including the main heroine Stella – fully translated bios for these characters can be found on Gematsu.

The team behind the game includes veterans of the Valkyria series, as well as Sakura Wars and of course Phantasy Star itself. There’s (unsurprisingly) no word on an English release, but we’ll keep an eye out in case one gets announced.

 

Phantasy Star 30th Anniversary RPG for Smartphones Teased, Countdown Site Opened

Friday, July 20th, 2018

SEGA has launched a countdown site, teasing the reveal of a new entry in the Phantasy Star RPG franchise. However, it’s for smartphones. Take that as you will.

Currently, there’s no real details on what the game itself entails – whether it’ll be taking after the stylings of the original series, or the more modern Online universe for instance. Saying that, the artwork definitely has us expecting something more akin to the former, and it may well be that it combines the two – it’s a 30th Anniversary celebration, after all.

The game will be announced on July 24th at 4am UK time.

SEGA Forever Shifting Focus Away from Emulation, Now Prioritising Native Ports

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

SEGA has announced that they are now prioritising native ports for SEGA Forever a la the ‘TaxStealth’ ports of Sonic 1 and 2, as opposed to emulated titles.

In a post on SEGA’s blog, they state that the native ports amongst the SEGA Forever lineup (Sonic 1,2 and CD, Crazy Taxi, and Virtua Tennis Challenge) are the most played – and as such, they intend to bring more of these sorts of titles to the service, rather than the emulated Mega Drive titles that make up a fair chunk of the current lineup. There’ll still be emulated titles added to the roster, but the focus of the initiative is now elsewhere.

As a result of this shift, the slew of releases for SEGA Forever is set to slow down a tad – however it appears the aim here is now “quality over quantity,” which will likely be music to the ears of many a SEGA fan. Also promised is “a surprise or two you weren’t expecting” amongst the upcoming emulated titles.

Speaking of which, the blog’s decor does tease another upcoming Mega Drive title for the service –  it appears Treasure’s classic head-em-up Dynamite Headdy is coming to smart devices soon, as is… Super Monkey Ball?

Sonic Makes Guest Appearance in Pac-Man Mobile Game

Tuesday, February 20th, 2018

Bandai Namco’s Pac-Man mobile will feature a special maze that’s themed around Sonic the Hedgehog. The maze is clearly inspired by Green Hill Zone with Sonic taking the place of Pac-Man and Motobugs taking the place of the ghosts. Click the embed below to see Sonic in action in the classic arcade maze game:

The Pac-Man mobile game is free-to-play on iOS and Android devices but also includes in-app purchases. This Sonic maze is currently not available in the latest update of the iOS game, so we can only assume it is coming in a future update.

UPDATE 21/2/2018
The update to the iOS version of the Pac-Man app is now live and includes the Sonic-themed mazes for free.
