Shenmue III Delayed to November 19th 2019

Tuesday, June 4th, 2019

The much anticipated Shenmue III has suffered another delay. Fortunately the game is still planned to release this year, but it’ll now be launching November 19th, rather than August 26th as previously planned.

In a joint statement, Yu Suzuki’s company YS NET and publisher Deep Silver said that the game “needed more refinement before being truly finished.”

We’re all for delays in the name of improving a game’s quality, so here’s hoping this helps Shenmue III become the game that fans have been waiting for.

“SEGA Master System: a visual compendium” on the way from Bitmap Books, Kickstarter Launches May 7th

Sunday, March 25th, 2018

The latest in Bitmap Books’ acclaimed Visual Compendium series is on the way – and it’ll centre on SEGA’s 8-bit machine, the SEGA Master System.

Bitmap’s previous works have included visual compendiums for the Super Nintendo and Commodore 64, as well as artbooks centered on arcade games and an upcoming collection of NeoGeo visuals. Apparently, SEGA are actually involved with this book – making it the first somewhat official entry in the series. There’ll be a Kickstarter campaign to get the book made, starting May 7th.

The Master System was a surprisingly strong contender in the UK, so we’re always happy to see it get some love. It’ll be interesting to see how the book explores SEGA’s unique alternatives to Nintendo’s output – as well as if it’ll delve into the system’s staggering popularity in Brazil.

STC25 Event Announced, Celebrating 25 Years of Sonic the Comic

Sunday, February 25th, 2018

If you love Sonic the Comic, here’s a date to remember: on June 3rd, an event celebrating 25 years since the series’ debut will be held in Manchester, here in the UK.

With all the talk of Archie Sonic’s demise and the all-new IDW comics, it can be easy to forget that the UK got its very own slice of Sonic comic action. The Fleetway Sonic comics were a unique take on the adventures of the blue hedgehog, even compared to the stuff going on across the pond at the time – and it garnered such a cult following that the comic still receives new issues created entirely by fans to this day, over on Sonic the Comic Online.

The event is being run by Michael Corker, founder of StCO – it’ll also mark his farewell from the series, as he intends to step down from his role as StCO’s editor in May.

The festivities will be held at the Fab Cafe in Manchester – rather than being a bombastic convention-style affair a la “Sonic the Comic-Con” (held in 2014), it’ll be a quieter meet for people to socialise and reminisce about the beloved comic series. There’s also plans for special guests, from StC both past and present, and plenty of art supplies for folks to get creative themselves.

Currently, funds to run the event are being raised through Kickstarter – at the time of writing, the project is just under £200 away from its goal of £1000.  You can contribute to the Kickstarter by clicking here.

Shinobi 7 launch Sonic: Battle Racers board game on Kickstarter

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Tabletop game company Shinobi 7 has launched a Kickstarter project for a new Sonic the Hedgehog board game, Sonic the Hedgehog: Battle Racers.

A full overview of the game itself is provided by the Kickstarter page, but the gist of it seems to be a tabletop translation of the ring-collecting, badnik-bopping antics that Sonic’s known for. There’s also a slew of benefits for people who pledge certain amounts to the campaign, such as exclusive Badnik figures and a Super Sonic player piece; as well as Stretch Goals aplenty.

The minimum pledge, which gets you the game and the Super Sonic figure, will set you back around £36. That being said, the campaign mentions extra shipping costs for rewards.

Shenmue III Delayed to 2nd Half of 2018

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

shenmue3

The inevitable Shenmue III delay has arrived! Shenmue III will now release in the 2nd half of 2018.

It had previously been slated for a December 2017 release but as was previously revealed, Shenmue III was not scheduled for an appearance at this year’s E3 which put a 2017 release into doubt.

Yu Suzuki announced the delay himself in the latest Kickstarter update and has said, “By utilising new technologies, we have been able to discover new possibilities and expressions. In many ways, the game has become bigger and more beautiful than I initially expected. We do, however, need more time to deliver the game to you.”

Shenmue III will not be published by SEGA but instead by Sony. The game will eventually launch on PC and PS4.
