Several SEGA Soundtracks Seemingly Sliced from Spotify

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Some unfortunate news for the musically inclined – several SEGA OSTs that were previously available for streaming on Spotify have suddenly vanished from the service.

SEGA doesn’t appear to have mentioned the removals on any social media accounts or statements, making the removals rather mysterious. It’s a pretty sizeable set of removals too; the affected soundtracks include:

  • Alex Kidd
  • Alexandria Bloodshow
  • Chain Chronicle
  • Fantasy Zone
  • Galaxy Force II/Thunder Blade
  • NiGHTS into dreams
  • Out Run
  • Power Drift
  • Rhythm Thief
  • Samurai Bloodshow
  • Skies Of Arcadia
  • Space Harrier Complete Collection
  • Super Hang-On
  • Virtua Fighter 1 – 5
  • WORLD CLUB Champion Football

It’s very unfortunate to see, particularly with SEGA PR previously stating they were looking into adding newer SEGA soundtracks to the service. Interestingly however, some of the titles appear to have changed into Japanese characters – suggesting perhaps the albums have been restricted to Japan.

We’ll let you know if the removals are reversed, or should a statement crop up. In the mean time, it’s back to the CDs for us.

[With thanks to @CorBond for compiling the list of removed tracks, as well as further investigating the extent of the removals]

Video Spotlight: Wii Gameplay of Rodea the Sky Soldier

Monday, April 6th, 2015

rodealogo

While Rodea the Sky Soldier won’t be published in the West by SEGA, the game’s origins lie with ex-SEGA developer Yuji Naka. His new studio Prope developed the original Wii version of the game before it was shelved. The game was then remade for Wii U and 3DS but limited edition versions of the Wii U game will now come with Prope’s original Wii version which varies slightly to the Wii U and 3DS games. The Wii version has a greater score attack focus (similar to Naka’s NiGHTS into dreams…) which is at odds with the Wii U and 3DS’ focus on exploration. You can now watch a large section of Wii gameplay below:

Rodea the Sky Soldier is released in the West on the 25th of September through NIS America. Day one editions of the Wii U version will come with the Wii game as a bonus disc.

First 4 Figures have unveiled a new statue and this time it takes the form of NiGHTS. The statue is modeled on the signature pose NiGHTS pulls on the original game’s title screen but the character is in the costume that was introduced with the game’s sequel, NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams. The crescent moon also lights up which is quite a lovely little touch.

The NiGHTS statue is limited to 500 pieces worldwide and is available to pre-order now. The entire statue will cost you $234.99 with an initial $20 down-payment. You can go straight to the statue’s entry on First 4 Figures online store by clicking here.

Special Edition of Sonic Lost World Revealed, Contains NiGHTS into Dreams Boss Battles

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Well how cool is this!? A special edition of the Wii-U version of Sonic: Lost World has surfaced called Sonic: Lost World Deadly Six Edition and it contains DLC that adds NiGHTS into Dreams boss battles!

You can see the NiGHTS characters in action in the new UK trailer below:

I think it’s brilliant that Sonic Team are still so enamoured with the NiGHTS franchise that they’re still referencing it even today. How about a new game now eh?

Rodea the Sky Soldier Amazingly Not Dead

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

Prope’s NiGHTS-like Wii and 3DS game Rodea the Sky Soldier is still due for release despite being announced in 2010. We even spoke to Yuji Naka back in 2011 and he confirmed that the finished game had been submitted to Kadowaka Games which meant we all assumed it was almost time to go gold.

Yoshimi Yasuda who is the president of Kadowaka Games has revealed that Kadowaka who are porting the Wii version to the 3DS were having trouble adapting the control scheme. Yasuda also said that the version is about 70% finished and that there will be more information in the near future.
