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.

    New Sonic Racing Title Teased at SXSW Sonic Panel

    Friday, March 16th, 2018

    A short teaser trailer revealed at the SXSW Sonic panel appears to be hinting at the release of a new Sonic racing game.

    The trailer features some images of a car that looks suspiciously like Sonic’s car from Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing before revealing a logo that is partially obscured. The logo appears to read “Sonic Racing” but it’s only the ‘R’ that’s illuminated; a nice little nod to 1997 Sonic racer, Sonic R.

    There are no other details on this title available at this time, although it has been heavily rumoured that Sumo Digital are leading development on the title.

    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.
