BBC Earth (the natural history division of BBC Worldwide) has partnered with SEGA to bring 2 attractions to the United States and Japan.
The attractions will be a “unique visitor experience” that fuses nature with technology. Sonic CD: The Experience? I wish.
The attraction will be a 4000 square meter, multi-level visitor experience. The BBC have said the attraction will allow visitors to “undertake an individual adventure using their eyes, ears, hands and minds to explore the wonders of the natural world”.
The attractions will launch this year and exact locations will be announced in the coming months. Other locations for the attraction are expected to follow but there is no indication of a UK launch at this time.
SEGA are publishing the new Guilty Gear game. The game is titled Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign and is the first in the series to use the Unreal Engine as well as polygonal graphics instead of sprites. Check out the rather stunning announcement trailer below:
Arc System Works fighters generally launch in the arcade before they receive a home console release so as a system wasn’t announced in the trailer we can assume this is arcade exclusive for the time being.
Project Diva Arcade is receiving 3 new songs in an update with one curious entry being a remix of Like the Wind from the Power Drift soundtrack.

SEGA’s theme-park Tokyo Joypolis in Odaiba, Japan is getting a new Sonic-themed attraction called Sonic Athletics.

Japanese Android and iOS game Fire should Light a Match is a simple little game where you strike matches against matchboxes. The trick is not to strike items that aren’t matches which include things like pencils and cigarettes.
