First Look at In-Game Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Action | Video Spotlight

Thursday, August 8th, 2019

SEGA have just uploaded the first in-game trailer for Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD, and as you can expect it’s basically Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz in HD. That’s no bad thing because the original game was certainly a good-looking game, and with that added clarity it now looks even better. Check it out:

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD released on the 29th of October 2019 for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. A PC port will arrive later in the Winter. Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz is also famous for being the last Super Monkey Ball game directed by series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi who would later find fame with the Yakuza franchise.

New Gameplay Footage Reveals Project Sakura Wars is an Action RPG, Releasing in Japan 12th December 2019

Thursday, July 25th, 2019

Our first look at Project Sakura Wars in action has revealed that the game is actually an action RPG as opposed to the more traditional strategy RPG action the series is known for.

SEGA Japan just finished a lengthy stream showcasing the game’s in-game action and you can watch the archived stream below (in-game footage starts at 49:57):

We’ve also got confirmation of the final game’s title. In Japan the game will be known as Shin Sakura Wars. Shin Sakura Wars is a PS4 exclusive with character designs being lead by Tite Kubo of Bleach fame. There is currently no word on a release date for the Western release of the game, but a Western release was confirmed at SEGA Fes 2019.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming October 2019 to Switch/Xbox One/PS4, First Screenshots & Trailer Revealed

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

UPDATE AT 17:54
A Western release has been confirmed as Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. The game will release on PS4, Xbox One and Switch on October 29th 2019 with a PC release scheduled for “Winter” 2019. You can watch the announcement trailer above.

ORIGINAL STORY

It’s official – Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball launches in Japan on October 31st 2019 for PC, Switch and PS4, and now we have our first look at the in-game visuals thanks to 4 high quality screenshots direct from Famitsu (see above).

Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball appears to be a remake of 2006 Wii title Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, which controversially included boss battles and the ability to jump. It was also the last Super Monkey Ball title directed by series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi who has more recently found fame with the Yakuza franchise.

There is currently no word on a Western release, but this at least confirms the existence of an Asian version after it was leaked on a Taiwanese ratings board last week.

The Super Monkey Ball franchise hasn’t seen an entry since 2012’s Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz on Vita and it’s been even longer since it received a release for a home console (2010’s Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll for Wii if you’re keeping track).

Previously Trademarked “Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball” Title Now Listed on Taiwan’s Rating Board for Switch, PS4 and PC

Wednesday, July 10th, 2019

The Taiwanese Rating Board have listed a new title in the Super Monkey Ball series, following on from what sounded like a new game being trademarked in Japan a couple of months ago.

The rated title’s name on the board roughly translates to “Now Taste Good! Super Monkey Ball”, which suggests this indeed the previously trademarked “Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball” (so a closer title would be along the lines of “Ripe! Super Monkey Ball”).  The listing also seemingly reveals which platforms the title will be coming to – PS4, PC and Switch. We wouldn’t be surprised if SEGA followed their recent trend of adding an Xbox One version to the lineup in Western regions (as was the case with Valkyria Revolution and, bizarrely, Sonic Forces), but that’s purely speculation on our behalf.

With an actual logo and artwork included with the listing, it’s probably not too long until SEGA officially announces this title. It’s a good time to be a fan of classic SEGA IP though – this is the latest in a string of revivals including Panzer Dragoon and Streets of Rage. Here’s hoping it’s up to par. Monkey Golf Par, that is.

Hatsune Miku Project DIVA: MEGA39s Announced for Nintendo Switch, Releasing 2020 in Japan

Monday, July 1st, 2019

In news that’s come almost completely out of nowhere, SEGA has announced a new game in its long-running Project DIVA rhythm game series, Project DIVA: Mega39s.

Intended to be a celebration of the series’ 10th Anniversary, it seems the game will be a scaled-down take on the PS4’s excellent Project DIVA: Future Tone, with similar graphics and 91 tracks from the series’ past. In addition, there’ll be 10 new songs, such as NayutalieN’s “Alien Alien”. The game also marks a first for the series – as it’ll be the first entry to not appear on a Playstation platform. Instead, the Nintendo Switch will play host to this entry.

Other confirmed features are over 300 costumes (modules), and the return of “Touch Mode” from Project Mirai DX for the 3DS, which allowed you to play the game with the touch screen. Additionally, Playstation fans aren’t entirely being left out – as all 10 new songs for this game will be coming to Future Tone as paid DLC.

Given how close it is to Future Tone, it’s probably not too surprising to learn that this title is being developed by SEGA’s beloved AM2 branch. Along with Future Tone, AM2 were also responsible for the Mirai series, so it’s exciting to see them working with Miku again given how good those games were.

The game is currently planned for a 2020 release in Japan. Whilst there’s no information on a Western release, it’s a fairly safe bet given even Future Tone, which was likely a licensing nightmare, managed to come over fairly soon after its Japanese release.

New Shenmue III Trailer Showcases English Voice Acting | Video Spotlight

Monday, June 10th, 2019

The PC Gaming Show has just concluded at this year’s E3 and with it comes a brand new Shenmue III trailer. Click the embed below to hear your first example of the English voice work in Shenmue III. It’s absolutely fantastic to finally hear Corey Marshall voicing Ryo Hazuki once again:

Shenmue III is the much anticipated follow-up to Dreamcast action RPG Shenmue II, and it releases on PC via the Epic Games Store and PS4 on November 19th 2019. It will not be published by SEGA, with Deep Silver taking over publishing duties under license from SEGA.

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.
