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.

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.

Hatsune Miku Project Diva Arcade Heading to PS4 UPDATED

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

futuretone

A port of Hatsune Miku Project Diva Arcade Future Tone is heading to PS4 in Japan in 2016, now called Hatsune Miku Project Diva Future Tone.

There aren’t many details regarding what will be ported across as Future Tone has a ridiculously large playlist. How the game will even play is in question as well as Future Tone uses a custom 4 button and touch slider control scheme. Thankfully I an see how this could be easily transferred to the PS4 controller, especially as it has a touch pad of its own.

More on this as we get it.

UPDATE

Here’s the trailer. The face buttons are mapped to the 4 buttons of the arcade cabinet’s buttons but we don’t see how the touch slider works:
