New US SEGA Survey Asks Fans to Determine Next Steps for Sonic The Hedgehog, Yakuza, Valkyria Chronicles, Phantasy Star Franchises

Monday, March 18th, 2019

The US branch of SEGA have unveiled a new survey which asks fans to determine the next steps for the Sonic The Hedgehog, Yakuza, Valkyria Chronicles and Phantasy Star franchises.

The survey takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete and every entry enters you into a prize draw to win up to $500 in gift certificates. You can complete the survey and enter the prize draw by clicking here.

If you’re a SEGA fan based in the US with a passion for any of the franchises listed, this is an important opportunity to share your love for them and get SEGA to act on that passion. SEGA have been making big steps in terms of quality in recent years and that’s been down to a renewed focus on their legacy franchises. If you want to see the company do more with Super Monkey Ball, Gunstar Heroes, Shinobi, Jet Set Radio, Phantasy Star, Sakura Wars, Altered Beast, Virtua Fighter, Streets of Rage, Puyo Puyo, Shenmue, Golden Axe, House of the Dead, Virtua Tennis and Crazy Taxi then this is the way to let them know.

Official SEGA Arcade Pop-Up Book Now on Kickstarter | Merchandise

Thursday, July 12th, 2018

Hot on the heels of Read-Only Memory’s Mega Drive/Genesis and Dreamcast Collected Works books, the company are now running a Kickstarter to fund a pop-up book featuring SEGA arcade cabinets. Called SEGA Arcade: Pop-Up History, this new book promises 5 pop-up cardboard sculptures of famous SEGA arcade games and their cabinets, with additional notes that chart the history of each machine.

The Kickstarter version of the book will feature an exclusive foil, embossed cover that will be replaced with a printed cover design if the book makes it to later editions.

If you’re interested in securing a copy of this rather unique little piece of SEGA merchandise then you can by backing the Kickstarter which will run from now until August 9th 2018. The book is currently scheduled to ship in April 2019.

Kickstarter Campaign Now Live for Bitmap Books’ SEGA Master System: A Visual Compendium | Merchandise

Monday, July 2nd, 2018

Sam Dyer and Bitmap Books have returned to Kickstarter to crowdfund a new visual compendium, but this time around it’s the publisher’s first foray into a SEGA system. Bitmap Books are now seeking funding to help create SEGA Master System: A Visual Compendium. The book will be officially licensed by SEGA.

As with previous books in the series, the SEGA Master System compendium will feature large features and interviews with a range of developers and artists, as well as double-page spreads on specific games with accompanying text.

Bitmap Books are looking to crowdfund £50,000 to create and produce the SEGA Master System compendium, and the Kickstarter campaign will be running until the 31st of July. There are various bonus items you can get in the various Kickstarter tiers, so why not head over the Kickstarter page right now and have a look?

Each physical book also comes with a custom bookmark and a set of anaglyph 3D glasses which can be used in conjunction with certain pages that are printed to make use of the 3D glasses; a nice little nod to the Master System’s own 3-D Glasses.

Yuji Naka, Creator of Sonic the Hedgehog Joins Square Enix

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Yuji Naka, the former head of Sonic Team and famed lead programmer on the original Sonic the Hedgehog game for Mega Drive has joined Square Enix’s game development staff. Naka’s own announcement reveals that he aims “to develop an enjoyable game” but there is currently no word on what project Naka will be working on.

Naka had previously left SEGA in 2006 to found his own games studio called Prope. It is currently unknown if Prope will continue to develop games without Naka. The studio’s social media pages haven’t updated since June 2017 so it could be the case that Prope have also closed their doors, however we have no solid information at this time.

Review: Another World/Out of this World

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Eric Chahi’s Another World was a monumental achievement in 1991 featuring beautiful artwork, rotoscoped animation and cinematics that were animated using flat polygons instead of pixel art. This masterfully directed piece of work features no heads-up-display at all and each scene must be played through trial and error to discover how to progress.
