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.

Sonic Mania Plus Revealed for Summer 2018 Release, Mighty and Ray Added as Playable Characters

Friday, March 16th, 2018

Sonic Mania is getting an enhanced physical release called Sonic Mania Plus. This new version adds Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel as playable characters. Mighty hasn’t been playable in a Sonic game since 1995’s Knuckles’ Chaotix and Ray hasn’t been playable since his one and only appearance in the Japan exclusive arcade title SEGASonic the Hedgehog which was released back in 1993.

This new package also includes something called Encore Mode, a new 4 player competition mode as well as a 32 page art book, a reversible cover featuring a faux-Mega Drive/Genesis look and holographic packaging. That’s quite a substantial upgrade over the previously digital-only release.

Sonic Mania Plus will release for PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch this summer.

SEGA Mega Drive Classics to Release on Xbox One, PC and PS4 May 29th 2018

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

UPDATE 2

The full list of included games has been confirmed by the PlayStation Blog. Notable exclusions from the collection include Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles which is likely due to licensing agreements regarding the soundtrack, which infamously features work by Michael Jackson. We also have confirmation of both offline and online multiplayer for games that support multiplayer options.

UPDATE 1

SEGA Europe have confirmed that the game will feature a new rewind option, a mirror mode and a selection of visual filters. SEGA Europe have confirmed the mirror mode mirrors the entire game horizontally – text and all. There has also been confirmation that Sonic 3 will not be included. The game will support trophies and achievements. An official website is also now live.

ORIGINAL POST

A new SEGA Mega Drive Classics collection will launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 29th 2018.

This new collection appears to be based on the engine powering the SEGA Mega Drive Classics Hub for PC (complete with the virtual gamer’s bedroom), which is bizarre considering this is supposed to be getting a PC port as well. Will it become an update to owners of the SEGA Mega Drive Classics Hub on PC or will SEGA de-list the hub? We will update this story as we learn more.

This collection will feature over 50 Mega Drive titles including Sonic the Hedgehog, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, Space Harrier II, Gunstar Heroes, ToeJam & Earl, The Revenge of Shinobi, Kid Chameleon and Altered Beast.

Yakuza 6 Demo Removed from US Playstation Store Due to Full Game Unlock Exploit

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

The Yakuza 6 demo has been removed from the US Playstation store after some users found an exploit to allow them to play the full game.

The demo itself is 36.53gb in size and actually contains all the data for the full game, except the demo was designed to lock players into a small portion of the game with their progress being carried over to the full game on release day (17th of April 2018).

The full game exploit appears to be exclusive to the American version of the demo as the demo is currently still available on the UK and Australian Playstation store-fronts. If this changes then we will be sure to update this story.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life delayed to April 17th, Demo Announced

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life has been delayed in The Americas and Europe to April 17th, from its original release date of March 20th.

The delay was revealed in a tweet from the official Yakuza Twitter account, but there was some good news with the bad too – on February 27th, the game will be getting a PSN demo. Progress made in the demo will also be carried over to the full game, giving a great incentive to those who are already dead-set on buying the game regardless.

Delays are always a bit of a shame, but if it results in a better product at the end, there’s no qualms here – and SEGA have promised to fill the void with some fresh Yakuza content in the meantime, too. Roll on April 17th!
