SEGA Mobile Crossover Puzzler ‘SEGA Heroes’ is Out Today

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

SEGA have released a brand new mobile title today called SEGA Heroes. The game is a Bejeweled-like puzzler with RPG elements and an abundance of characters from various classic SEGA franchises. Put together a team of up to 4 characters and battle it out to level up and gain power ups. You can play as characters from Sonic the Hedgehog, Golden Axe, Shinobi and Streets of Rage and all the characters have been drawn in a cartoony, big-head style that keeps things looking consistent. Check out the launch trailer below:

SEGA Heroes is out now on the Google Play store and iOS app store. The game is a free download but it supports in-app purchases.

SEGA’s UK Online Shop Has Finally Opened | Merchandise

Saturday, October 27th, 2018

SEGA’s long-awaited UK online shop has finally opened and there’s some very interesting items up for sale.

There’s merchandise ranges for Yakuza, Alex the Kidd, Streets of Rage, Sonic the Hedgehog and more. Some of our favourite items include a very cool set of Yakuza family crest pin badges in a presentation box, an Alex Kidd framed print, a Streets of Rage drawstring bag and the Sonic x Sanio range of crossover plushies.

There’s also merchandise based on consoles so if a Mega Drive and Dreamcast range of clothing is up your street then the SEGA UK shop has you covered. This is probably the most extensive range of SEGA merchandise available outside of SEGA’s US online store, so if you’re based in the UK and have been jealous of the US SEGA shop, you finally have an alternative.

Head on over to the UK SEGA Shop now and browse their many collections. There’s bound to be something that’ll take your fancy.

Streets of Rage 4 is Actually Happening

Monday, August 27th, 2018

SEGA are teaming up with Lizardcube (developers of the recent Wonderboy: The Dragon’s Trap remake), Guard Crush Games and Dotemu to bring Streets of Rage 4 to reality. Check out the trailer below to see the first footage of this game’s lovely, hand-drawn animation in motion:

Well doesn’t that look fantastic? Sadly this trailer is all we have to go on at the moment. There is currently no release date or confirmation of what platforms Streets of Rage 4 will release on at this time. It will also be interesting to see if Yuzo Koshiro and Motohiro Kawashima return to score the soundtrack, but that is also unconfirmed at this time.

Nintendo Everything are currently speculating that a Nintendo Switch release is in the works as both Lizardcube and Dotemu are famous for their work on releases for this system.

Review: SEGA Mega Drive Classics for PS4

Friday, June 1st, 2018

It’s 2018 and it’s time for another Mega Drive collection for modern systems. This time around we have SEGA Mega Drive Classics for PS4, Xbox One and PC. This collection has been developed by d3t who have previously worked on the SEGA Mega Drive Classics Hub for PC. In fact, this collection is incredibly reminiscent of the Hub and includes the same bedroom menu presentation. PC owners of the Hub will also notice it has now been patched to more closely resemble the collection on consoles, except it still retains its Steam Workshop support for mods.

SEGA Mega Drive Classics to Release on Xbox One, PC and PS4 May 29th 2018

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

UPDATE 2

The full list of included games has been confirmed by the PlayStation Blog. Notable exclusions from the collection include Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles which is likely due to licensing agreements regarding the soundtrack, which infamously features work by Michael Jackson. We also have confirmation of both offline and online multiplayer for games that support multiplayer options.

UPDATE 1

SEGA Europe have confirmed that the game will feature a new rewind option, a mirror mode and a selection of visual filters. SEGA Europe have confirmed the mirror mode mirrors the entire game horizontally – text and all. There has also been confirmation that Sonic 3 will not be included. The game will support trophies and achievements. An official website is also now live.

ORIGINAL POST

A new SEGA Mega Drive Classics collection will launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 29th 2018.

This new collection appears to be based on the engine powering the SEGA Mega Drive Classics Hub for PC (complete with the virtual gamer’s bedroom), which is bizarre considering this is supposed to be getting a PC port as well. Will it become an update to owners of the SEGA Mega Drive Classics Hub on PC or will SEGA de-list the hub? We will update this story as we learn more.

This collection will feature over 50 Mega Drive titles including Sonic the Hedgehog, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, Space Harrier II, Gunstar Heroes, ToeJam & Earl, The Revenge of Shinobi, Kid Chameleon and Altered Beast.

Check out the reveal trailer below:

RC Berg announce “Video Game Heroes” model kits based on Streets of Rage, Altered Beast and Rent A Hero

Friday, February 9th, 2018

Figure company RC Berg have announced new additions to their “Video Game Heroes” model kit line, based on a trio of classic SEGA properties – Streets of Rage (Bare Knuckle), Altered Beast, and Rent-A-Hero.

Each set has 3 figures – for example, the Streets of Rage set includes Axel, Blaze and Adam. It’s important to note though – these are model kits, and as such you’ll need to paint them yourself. They stand at roughly 60-90mm, and each group of figures will set you back around 7200 yen (Roughly £48). Worth mentioning is that this isn’t RC Berg’s first foray into SEGA model kits – they previously released a few fantastic Space Harrier kits too.

50 sets will be sold ahead of the full release, at the Winter Wonder Festival event being held February 18th. We’ll let you know if they go live at any international retailers afterwards.

Images of the 3 sets can be found below, with a full gallery at Famitsu (and on RC Berg’s website):

Yuzo Koshiro and Motohiro Kawashima to Tour Streets of Rage Music with Red Bull Music Academy

Friday, September 29th, 2017

If you’ve never seen it, go and watch Red Bull Music Academy’s fascinating documentary series Diggin’ in the Carts. It interviews loads of Japanese video game composers from its earliest days and right up to the PS1 era. While lots of different composers from many different publishing houses feature, Yuzo Koshiro of Streets of Rage and Revenge of Shinobi fame features in one episode and many contemporary artists heap praise on his revolutionary dance-influenced music.

Despite the fact the series is now 3 years old, Red Bull Music Academy are reviving the Diggin’ in the Carts name for a world tour featuring composers that appeared in the original series. Yuzo Koshiro and fellow Streets of Rage composer Motohiro Kawashima are due to appear at 3 live shows that will also feature many other composers from the series. The dates for these shows are listed below:

– October 22nd 2017, Regent Theater, Los Angeles, USA
– November 17th 2017, Liquidroom, Tokyo, Japan
– November 30th 2017, Fabric, London, UK

Tickets aren’t available just yet but as this information becomes available we will be sure to keep you updated.

Review: Streets of Rage for Master System

Sunday, January 29th, 2017

sorsms01 001

There’s something fascinating about seeing a much more advanced title being ported to a significantly underpowered system. In the right hands, these kind of ports can be an exciting experiment. What will the developer sacrifice in order to make the game run on such archaic hardware? More often than not, it’s the in-house studios who achieve the better results and with the Master System version of Streets of Rage that is definitely the case.

This will not be the first time SEGA have collaborated with Drop Dead. The company previously ran a SEGA line that included Golden Axe, Streets of Rage and Ecco the Dolphin shirts (see below).

Merchandise: New Releases Added to Our SEGA Music Index and Further Updates

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

pulse01

Our SEGA Music Index continues to receive more updates!

Existing entries in the index now have a much tidier look that puts the artwork front and center and any additional images are now linked via image thumbnails at the bottom. Just makes the entries a little easier to navigate.

The big update comes with 5 new entries to the index. These come in the form of the recent Data Discs vinyl releases of Streets of Rage, Shenmue, Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master and Super Hang-On. Each release has its own separate entry with artwork and details about the release we thought were striking.

The final addition comes in the form of a Pulseman remix LP that was recently given to us by a good friend. This is quite a peculiar release as it was distributed in the UK despite the game never making it out of Japan.
