Unofficial Sonic-Themed Social Media App ‘Rings’ Appears

Friday, July 7th, 2017

rings01

In a move that is probably going to bring The Ban Hammer down pretty strongly, a social media application developer called Narvii Inc. have released a Sonic the Hedgehog-themed social media app called Rings without any approval from SEGA themselves.

The app is available now on iOS and Android devices and is completely free, but it requires registration using either your email, mobile number of Facebook login. It’s pretty comprehensive and features support for things like your own profile, complete with a comments wall and gallery, chat rooms, quizzes and various feeds that allow you follow the latest Sonic news and much more.

Narvii Inc. have rolled out a lot of similar social media apps with a similarly niche focus. The iOS app store currently shows similar apps powered by Narvii Inc.’s Amino social media platform that are themed around wrestling, video games, K pop, anime and much more.

If this sounds like something you’d like to check out, you can download the iOS version by clicking here or the Android version by clicking here. Please be aware that these are not officially sanctioned SEGA products and we will not be held responsible for any negative user experiences you may have.

SEGA Tunes: The Sonic Forces Vocal Theme is Predictably Sung by a Pop Punk Vocalist of Yesteryear

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

SonicForces-Logo-1024x713

In keeping with the theme of Sonic Team dredging up pop punk vocalists whose popularity climaxed around 2003, the Sonic Forces vocal theme ‘Fist Bump’ features Douglas Robb from Hoobastank. This is pretty in keeping with mainline Sonic Team-developed Sonic titles as we’ve previously experienced themes by Zebrahead and Jaret Reddick from Bowling for Soup.

We’d previously heard an untitled instrumental version of this track back in March, but this version features Robb singing along with the main guitar melody. Check it out below:

Sonic Forces releases on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC around Christmas this year and is being developed by Sonic Team.

E3 2017 is here and it’s brought lots of new details regarding Sonic Forces, Sonic Mania, Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. First up we have a new trailer for Sonic Forces which shows us a little more gameplay of each of the 3 gameplay styles as well as the reveal of a new villain. The new villain looks like a Sonic-styled hedgehog but he has a glitchy look about him. His reveal is prefaced with the symbol for infinity which has many speculating the character is called Infinity or Infinite. Check out the trailer below:

IGN have also posted 7 minutes of direct feed Sonic Forces gameplay that showcases the PS4 Pro version of the game. Worth mentioning is the brief look at the avatar menu which sees the customer character wearing some rather snazzy Mega Drive-branded footwear. Sonic Forces launches on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch in Q4 2017. You can watch the new gameplay here:

Now we move onto Sonic Mania and more specifically the Nintendo Switch version. IGN have had some hands-on time with this version and shared 6 minutes of gameplay which features Act 2 of Green Hill Zone complete with a reveal of the stage’s boss. We also get another look at the Mirage Saloon stage. Sonic Mania launches on PC, Switch, PS4 and Xbox One on August 15th 2017. Take a look below:

Next up we have a new trailer of the PS4 Yakuza remake, Yakuza Kiwami. The game will release on August 29th 2017 and if you pre-order now you can secure a limited edition steelbook case. Check out the new trailer below:

Finally we have a new trailer for Yakuza 6 which also reveals the game’s subtitle, The Song of Life. The trailer reveals a portion of the game’s story which sees Kiryu discovering that Haruka has had a baby and Kiryu is trying to learn who the father is. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is due for release in early 2018 for PS4. You can watch the new trailer by clicking the embed below:

Another classic Sonic stage is making its way to Sonic Mania in the form of a remixed Chemical Plant Zone.

The new version of Chemical Plant Zone brings a whole host of new gimmicks with it. We’ve got mega-mack that can change colour which gives it different qualities like making it more springy, we’ve got sticky surfaces that you can launch yourself from and we’ve also got a new DNA-style transporter for launching Sonic/Tails/Knuckles onto higher paths.

Check out the trailer below to see the new stage in action:

We’ve also got a new image of a Green Hill Zone act 2 boss which you can view by clicking here (WARNING: SPOILERS). This image comes courtesy of tech site Venture Beat and they may have leaked this image early as the caption doesn’t match up with what it’s showing.

Sonic Mania launches on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch on the 15th of August 2015.
