Three Classic Virtual On Titles are coming to Playstation 4, as TANITA launch crowdfunding for PS4 Twin Stick Controller

Thursday, October 18th, 2018

Surprise! Hardware company TANITA have announced a crowdfunding drive to produce Virtual On twin stick controllers for PS4.

Actually, this isn’t much of a shock, as they’ve already tried it once before, with a project that fell far short of its goal. This time they’re aiming to produce fewer sticks (at a lower specification), and as such the goal of the crowdfunding is dramatically lower than the previous attempt. The crowdfunding page is available here, with a goal of 4.4 million JPY.

However, there’s only one Virtual On game currently on Playstation 4 with which to use the controller, A Certain Magical Virtual-On. But that won’t be the case for long – alongside the crowdfunding announcement, it’s also been revealed that Cyber Troopers Virtual-On, Virtual On Oratorio Tangram ver 5.66, and Cyber Troopers Virtual On FORCE are all coming to PS4! Presumably, they’ll be compatible with TANITA’s new controller. It’s a real surprise announcement, and very welcome – particularly as FORCE has been stuck on Japanese Xbox 360s as an exclusive for years now.

(With thanks to BlackKite on Twitter for the heads up!)

Cancelled Shenmue 1 & 2 Remakes Revealed by Digital Foundry

Monday, October 15th, 2018

Digital Foundry have managed to get their hands on some work-in-progress footage of a cancelled Shenmue 1 & 2 remake project. Unlike d3t’s Shenmue I & II, this would have been a complete remake of the game with more detailed assets, textures and lighting. Check out the video below to see a comparison of this footage versus Shenmue I & II:

There’s a full article that breaks down what is being shown in the footage and what it does differently to the eventual release of Shenmue I & II. There’s also some speculation as to why these remakes were cancelled in favour of the upscaled HD ports we eventually got. Digital Foundry suggests the remakes were cancelled due to budget restraints and delays.

Ports of Fighting Vipers and Motor Raid to Appear in Project Judge

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Project Judge (also known as Judge Eyes in Japan) will feature some interesting SEGA arcade titles in its in-game arcades.

First up we have a fresh port of AM2’s 1995 fighting game Fighting Vipers, which has previously appeared on Saturn as well as receiving modern HD ports for Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2012.

The more interesting announcement is that 1997’s Motor Raid is receiving a port. This futuristic, motorcycle racing game features combat similar to Road Rash and this port will be the first time it’s ever appeared on a home system. Interested in how this plays? Our buddies at Saturn Memories did a video on it a while back:

Project Judge will release as Judge Eyes in Japan on the 13th of December 2018 for PS4. It is an original title from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios set in the same world as the Yakuza franchise. A Western release is scheduled for sometime in 2019.

In Japan the game will be officially titled Judge Eyes, while Project Judge is currently the working title in Western territories. Project Judge features action similar to the over-the-top brawling of the Yakuza franchise, but with a heavier emphasis on detective work and investigation. It’s actually set in the same fictionalised world of Yakuza and the 2 trailers that accompany the game’s announcement showcase action taking place in Kamurocho:
