Sonic Mania Plus Gets a New Trailer and Screenshots, Launches July 17th

Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

UPDATE (16:30) – Screenshots from SEGA Press have now been added. 

Original Post:

A new trailer for Sonic Mania’s upcoming Plus edition has been released, giving us our first look at new characters Mighty and Ray in action – as well as a July 17th release date.

The trailer also shows some new animation in the style of previous trailers, as well as a glimpse at the game’s new “Encore Mode”. At a glance, this appears to rework the colour schemes of the levels; it’s not yet clear if it does anything else, though previews from Famitsu have indicated there may be more to the mode – including what appears to be Angel Island becoming playable. The trailer theme is a remix of the previous pre-order trailer song, “Time Trials” by Hyper Potions, though now with a helping of guitar from none other than Jun Senoue!

Sonic Mania Plus will launch physically on July 17th for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. For owners of the original (and the PC version), a paid DLC update will be available.

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming Western release of Shining Resonance Refrain, introducing the game’s heroes.

In addition, the game now has a firm release date, and there’s not long to go. The game launches in both the Americas and Europe on July 10th, for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. As a reminder, the game is a remake of the original Japan-exclusive Shining Resonance, with the presentation touched up and all of the original game’s DLC included; and localised into English, of course.

All launch run copies also include a steelbook case, dubbed the Draconic Launch Edition.

Shining Resonance Refrain coming West for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

Shining? Is… is that really you?

Marking the end of the series’ over 10-year absence from Western shores, SEGA has announced Shining Resonance Refrain, a remaster of the PS3 title Shining Resonance. The remaster includes all previously released DLC, as well as a new ‘Refrain Mode’ that adds brand-new content. For those wondering, Shining had a bit of an image overhaul after Camelot broke ties with SEGA – so if you’re expecting something along the lines of the classic Mega Drive Shining series, this might not be what you’re after.

One slightly odd thing to note – while SEGA hasn’t localised any entries in the series for over 10 years, the fighting game spin off Blade Arcus from Shining: Battle Arena was localised, by Studio Saisenzen, and is available on Steam.

The game will also be getting a launch edition with a reversible metal slipcase – this will also be available in Europe, which is always nice to see. SEGA has also confirmed that the game will receive an English dub, with the option to use Japanese audio also being available.

There’s also a trailer, available below:

Space Channel 5 VR: Arataka Dancing Show releasing for HTC Vive in Spring 2018

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

SEGA and development company Grounding have announced Space Channel 5 VR: Arataka Dancing Show will be getting a digital release for the HTC Vive in Spring 2018. There’s currently no word of an international release or pricing, but we do know the game will be available for public demoing at the Makuhari Messe in Japan later this month. The digital release will seemingly be based on this demo, so it’ll probably be more geared towards showing a concept than being a fully fledged game.

The demo sees you dancing with Ulala to defeat the Morolians, much like the original Dreamcast title; but now in VR! This is a different project to “Space Channel 5: Ukiuki Viewing Show”, demonstrated at TGS a couple of years ago, as in that, you were more of a spectator than an active participant in the grooving.

It’s nice to see another SEGA franchise making a return, and in a rather interesting way – if an international release falls into place, we’ll let you know.

Puyo Puyo Tetris Confirmed for PC Release on 27th February 2018

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

After yesterday’s not-so-cryptic teases on the Steam pages of Bayonetta, Vanquish and Valkyria Chronicles, Puyo Puyo Tetris is now fully confirmed for a PC Steam release on the 27th of February 2018.

Pre-ordering the game now is supposed to grant Steam users a 10% discount (£13.49) as well as access to some exclusive wallpapers and avatars. In addition, the Steam version adds an option to use Japanese voiceover.

SEGA seemingly tease Puyo Puyo Tetris for Steam

Monday, February 5th, 2018

Several not-very-cryptic pieces of ASCII art have been posted to the Steam pages of BayonettaVanquish, and Valkyria Chronicles, hinting that a PC port of crossover puzzler Puyo Puyo Tetris is inbound. It’s very in-line with previous PC port teasers (Vanquish was first hinted at in Bayonetta PC’s files, for instance), and the timing seems about right given yesterday was actually “Puyo Puyo Day”.

Considering Puyo Tetris is now available on a staggering number of platforms, it makes sense to push into PC territory; it’ll also be the first official Puyo release on PC since 2004’s Puyo Pop Fever. It’s nice to see SEGA Europe continue to deliver on their promise of PC ports, at any rate!
