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!

SEGA 3D Classics Collection Confirmed for EU Release

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

sega3dclassicscollection

In the latest edition of SEGA Europe’s SEGA Central YouTube series, community manager Dan Sheridan has confirmed that SEGA 3D Classics Collection will come to Europe and the delay to its launch in this region is, “subject to approval submissions”.

Sheridan couldn’t confirm a release date for the game but confirmation that it is coming to Europe is certainly a big step forward for SEGA Europe who have generally been quite late on the uptake of releasing games the American branch of SEGA have already committed to.

You can watch the latest episode of SEGA Central below. It also includes an unboxing of the new Europa Edition of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered which launches on the 17th of this month:

SEGA Europe have finally committed to a release of Yakuza 0.

The European version of Yakuza 0 is planned to arrive in, “early 2017”. The game will launch as both a physical and digital release on PS4, which makes a nice change considering Yakuza 5 was a digital only release.

Yakuza 0 is a prequel to the original Yakuza game on PS2. You can also watch a new trailer below:

European Special Edition of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered Announced

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

europaedition

SEGA Europe have revealed a ‘Europa Edition’ for Valkyria Chronicles Remastered.

The European special edition will come with an A3 poster of the game’s cast and an exclusive ‘The Art of Valkyria Chronicles’ art book. On top of that, you also get all the previously released DLC with the game as standard. That’s a pretty nifty package if I do say so myself.

Pricing hasn’t been revealed yet but Valkyria Chronicles Remastered launches in Europe on the 17th of May for PS4.

SEGA Taking on Fan Feedback to Help “Make Their Games Better”

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

segasurvey

SEGA are now running a new survey which you can get involved in by clicking here.

The company are specifically looking for fan feedback in order to, “make their games better”. There’s a whole host of questions in this survey that ask what your favourite SEGA franchises are (both old and new) as well as your involvement with things like mobile gaming. They’ve also hilariously listed House of the Dead and The House of the Dead as separate entries. Oh SEGA.

This survey is certainly an interesting development that fans of the publisher will want to get involved in. As we have previously mentioned in the past in our Yakuza 0 and the Disparity Between SEGA America and Europe article, SEGA’s Western divisions don’t seem to communicate with consumers very well and an opportunity to give feedback in this survey may help improve matters in the future.

With the announcement of Yakuza 0’s release in Western territories, we’ve been introduced once again to the disparity of SEGA’s American, European and Japanese branches. In this feature we delve into the ongoing frustration that is being caused by the disparity between these divisions and why committing to one Western territory and not another is damaging trust between SEGA and its user-base.

Sonic Boom Cartoon Airs in Europe Autumn 2015

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

In what has to be one of the most peculiar decisions regarding Sonic Boom, the CG animated series that ties in with the video games will air in Europe in Autumn 2015 despite the games based on the series being released in November of this year.

The Sonic Boom cartoon airs in North America and France later this year which ties in nicely to the releases of the Sonic Boom video games which act as prequels to the series. The closer release windows for both the series and games in these territories are obviously designed to compliment each other and boost sales of the game as well as interest in the show.

So how does SEGA Europe intend on promoting the Sonic Boom games in the rest of Europe now the cartoon as fallen to late next year? Only time will tell but we’d bet some serious cash that the games are not going to sell as well in this territory when compared to France and North America unless SEGA Europe are willing to put some money into a big marketing campaign.
