Almost 9 years after its initial release in arcades, AM2’s mech action game, Border Break is finally getting a home console port for the PS4.

Border Break first released for SEGA’s RingEdge arcade board in 2009 and despite receiving many reiterations, has stayed arcade exclusive until now. While there is no firm release date at the moment, SEGA Japan are promising a release at some point in 2018. There is currently no word on a wider release for US and European markets.

There’s a Sonic Forces x Hooters Collaboration Happening in Japan

Saturday, September 23rd, 2017

Cross-promotional advertising campaigns and Sonic the Hedgehog are not exactly the weirdest occurance in the world. We’ve had Sonic branded Happy Meal toys, Burger King toys, toothpaste, Williams F1 cars and Life Savers hard candies so SEGA have certainly proven they like to get the Blue Blur’s face onto anything. However, you’d like to have thought that SEGA’s family friendly mascot adheres to a certain set of standards. Surely we wouldn’t see Sonic’s face on any adult-orientated products? Oh boy.

SEGA Japan have revealed a cross-promotional advertising campaigns with 3 branches of Hooters restaurants in Tokyo. If you’re not familiar with Hooters then it’s basically an American-style restaurant famous for hot wings and employing sexy waitresses with low-cut tops. The collaboration will extend to the Shibuya West, Ginza and Akasaka branches of the restaurant but it’s not exactly clear what products will actually come out of this collaboration at the moment. More is due to be revealed in the coming days and quite frankly, I’m worried.

New SEGASonic Bros. Screenshot Shows Multi-Coloured Sonics in Action

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

segasonicbros

We’ve finally got a screen of SEGASonic Bros. that shows the multi-coloured Sonics that appear on the title screen, but actually in action.

While we’ve previously seen screens of different coloured balls on the game’s play-field (see below), the multi-coloured Sonics that appear on the title screen hadn’t previously been shown in game. From the above screenshot we can see the multi-coloured Sonics are actually used in play. We can only assume that turn into balls when placed or scored.

ShouTime has also uploaded an image of a Sonic the Hedgehog rucksack which is tagged with ‘SEGASonic Bros’. It’s not confirmed but this could be a piece of merchandise that was tied into the release of the game, but it doesn’t explicitly state this on the actual rucksack.

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.
