Project Diva Mega39s Coming to the West as Hatsune Miku Project Diva MegaMix

Friday, August 30th, 2019

A Western release of Hatsune Miku Project Diva: Mega39s has been confirmed. The game will release in the West at some point in 2020 as Hatsune Miku Project Diva MegaMix.

MegaMix is the first Project Diva title to be released for the Nintendo Switch and features a new “anime” art style and an additional motion-controlled mode called Mix Mode that requires you to move the joy cons over 2 left and right panels at the bottom of the screen. Check out the Western announcement trailer to see that in action:

Project Diva MegaMix also boasts over 100 songs and 300 outfits for the Vocaloids, with mix-and-match options for outfits and hairstyles. You can also design your own t-shirts in this game. It would also appear that the game is getting a digital-only release via the Nintendo eShop.

Disney to Re-Release Mega Drive Versions of Aladdin and The Lion King in New Budget Collection This October 29th

Wednesday, August 28th, 2019

UPDATE
In light of this announcement, Disney have removed the previously available Steam versions of The Lion King and Aladdin from sale. Their storefront pages are still on Steam, but the option to buy them is no longer there. Thanks to Saturn Memories for the tip.

ORIGINAL STORY
Disney and Digital Eclipse will re-release the Mega Drive versions of Aladdin and The Lion King in a new budget-release collection for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on October 29th 2019.

This new compilation also includes the Game Boy versions of the games alongside the SNES version of The Lion King. The SNES version of Aladdin isn’t included, likely due to a licensing issue. The SNES version of Aladdin is a completely different game when compared to its Mega Drive equivalent, and it was developed by Capcom.

The collection also boasts a 15 second rewind button, a previously unreleased “Final Cut” of Aladdin and the 1993 trade show version of Aladdin. Aladdin is famous for being the 3rd best selling Mega Drive game behind Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming October 2019 to Switch/Xbox One/PS4, First Screenshots & Trailer Revealed

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

UPDATE AT 17:54
A Western release has been confirmed as Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. The game will release on PS4, Xbox One and Switch on October 29th 2019 with a PC release scheduled for “Winter” 2019. You can watch the announcement trailer above.

ORIGINAL STORY

It’s official – Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball launches in Japan on October 31st 2019 for PC, Switch and PS4, and now we have our first look at the in-game visuals thanks to 4 high quality screenshots direct from Famitsu (see above).

Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball appears to be a remake of 2006 Wii title Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, which controversially included boss battles and the ability to jump. It was also the last Super Monkey Ball title directed by series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi who has more recently found fame with the Yakuza franchise.

There is currently no word on a Western release, but this at least confirms the existence of an Asian version after it was leaked on a Taiwanese ratings board last week.

The Super Monkey Ball franchise hasn’t seen an entry since 2012’s Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz on Vita and it’s been even longer since it received a release for a home console (2010’s Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll for Wii if you’re keeping track).

Previously Trademarked “Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball” Title Now Listed on Taiwan’s Rating Board for Switch, PS4 and PC

Wednesday, July 10th, 2019

The Taiwanese Rating Board have listed a new title in the Super Monkey Ball series, following on from what sounded like a new game being trademarked in Japan a couple of months ago.

The rated title’s name on the board roughly translates to “Now Taste Good! Super Monkey Ball”, which suggests this indeed the previously trademarked “Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball” (so a closer title would be along the lines of “Ripe! Super Monkey Ball”).  The listing also seemingly reveals which platforms the title will be coming to – PS4, PC and Switch. We wouldn’t be surprised if SEGA followed their recent trend of adding an Xbox One version to the lineup in Western regions (as was the case with Valkyria Revolution and, bizarrely, Sonic Forces), but that’s purely speculation on our behalf.

With an actual logo and artwork included with the listing, it’s probably not too long until SEGA officially announces this title. It’s a good time to be a fan of classic SEGA IP though – this is the latest in a string of revivals including Panzer Dragoon and Streets of Rage. Here’s hoping it’s up to par. Monkey Golf Par, that is.
