Taiko No Tatsujin: Drum Session Adding Out Run’s “Magical Sound Shower” as DLC in Japan

Thursday, December 20th, 2018

The latest PS4 iteration of Namco’s beloved drum-em-up Taiko No Tatsujin is getting a fresh dose of SEGA rhythm action, as one of the newly announced DLC packs for the game includes music from SEGA’s arcade classic Out Run.

Unsurprisingly, “Magical Sound Shower” is the track being added, considered by many as the Out Run song. It’s not made clear if it’s the original arcade arrangement, a later arrangement from the likes of Out Run 2, or even a new arrangement for the game. There’s not long to find out however, as the DLC pack it’s included in, “Don Na Pack Vol. 16”, will be released in Japan on January 24th 2019, for 500 yen. The pack also includes music from the anime High Score Girl and Darius II.

Also somewhat related to SEGA is the next DLC pack, which was released today in Japan; a collection of Hatsune Miku songs, including the smash hit Senbonzakura. This pack weighs in at a rather fitting 390 yen.

The Japanese DLC page for Taiko No Tatsujin Drum Session is available here. Currently there isn’t anything to suggest this DLC coming to the Western versions, but we’ll keep an eye out in case it does.

SEGA AGES: Out Run Launches January 10th 2019 in the West

Friday, December 14th, 2018

Nintendo Switch owners rejoice – the SEGA AGES re-release of Yu Suzuki’s classic driving game Out Run is heading to Western shores, and now we have a solid release date! 

SEGA has confirmed the game will launch on the eShop in Europe and America on January 10th 2019. The game boasts a slew of additions and improvements over the original arcade version, including the car tuning feature and extra music featured in the 3DS release of the game, as well as 4 additional music tracks on top of those (3 of which are actually taken from other Out Run games, remade in the arcade style). It also runs at a smooth 60fps, and even allows toggling between the Deluxe cabinet and Stand-Up cabinet ROMs, with each having slightly different track layouts.

The game has been available on the Japanese eShop for a while, so if you’re savvy you can actually get the game right now if you don’t mind tangling with making a Japanese Nintendo account. For those who can’t be bothered with that, fortunately there’s not too much longer to go until Out Run arrives west.

New Switch Out Run Screenshots Emerge

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

A fresh batch of screenshots showcasing the M2 SEGA Ages port of Out Run for Nintendo Switch have surfaced. Check out the gallery below to see how the port is shaping up:

This port appears to be heavily based on the previous 3DS port (also by M2). It appears we have new songs with one track in particular called Radiation -Nostalgia Ver.- (perhaps a chiptune version of Radiation from Out Run 2006?), we’ve got a CRT filter that’s made to emulate the look of the original arcade cabinet and an expanded widescreen (but bordered) resolution. The car sprites are also based on the later Shenmue II port of the game which alters the car graphics to make them more indistinct from actual cars like the Ferrari Testarossa. This is likely to avoid a licensing issue.

The Switch port of SEGA Ages is still due to release in Japan sometime this year for 925 yen. There is currently no word on a release date for the rest of the world.

UPDATE 22/11/18
Eurogamer have now confirmed that Out Run will launch worldwide early next year.

Columns II, Sonic 2, Out Run & Thunder Force AC Heading to Switch

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018

Weekly Famitsu have revealed that the next batch of SEGA Ages titles to release on Switch will include Columns II, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Out Run and more interestingly, Thunder Force AC. Thunder Force AC is a weird little title in that it’s an arcade port of Thunder Spirits for SNES. Thunder Spirits itself is also an altered port of Thunder Force III for Mega Drive.

The only new features revealed at this time are that Columns II is getting an online versus mode, while Out Run will featured newly arranged music tracks. There are currently no screenshots, video or release dates set for these titles at this time.

The SEGA Ages line for Nintendo Switch is still currently Japan exclusive. Development on these ports is lead by M2 who previously worked on the SEGA Ages ports to 3DS.

New Kotaku Article Sheds Light on Obscure 1989 Arcade Racer SEGA Super Circuit

Friday, September 4th, 2015

segasupercircuit

A new article on Kotaku has revealed some interesting information about a 1989 SEGA arcade racing game called SEGA Super Circuit.

The 8 player racing game was located in the Tokyo Roof Complex in Yokohama and was controlled via altered Out Run cabinets that are hooked up to remote control cars with cameras attached to them. You can watch it in action below:

Not much information about its existence or what happened to it is available online so this is a very cool little oddity that deserves further exposure.
