3D Out Run is released today! You can now grab the latest port of the SEGA AM2 arcade-driving classic from the 3DS eShop and we suggest that you do because M2 have done a marvelous job in making this the definitive version of the game (and it’s portable!). Check out the launch trailer for the game below:
The Creative Assembly’s Total War franchise is now 15 years old and to celebrate the studio have released a lovely little video that looks back at everything from Shogun: Total War to Total War: Attila.
Keep an eye out for a cheeky little nod to the upcoming Warhammer game that the studio are developing but still haven’t officially announced (come on guys, we all know it’s happening):
The first cinematic trailer and gameplay footage for 3DS rhythm game Hatsune Miku Project Mirai DX have launched and you can watch them below. Both feature the song Nice to Meet You Mr. Earthling and it’s going to be stuck in your head for days to come. Check out the cinematic trailer below:
The gameplay trailer clocks in at a meaty 5 minutes so there’s plenty to get your teeth into. It appears that one of the mini-games is just Puyo Puyo so that’s a lovely surprise!
Hatsune Miku Project Mirai DX is released worldwide on the 28th of May for 3DS. The game was developed by SEGA AM2. Yes, really!
The first teaser for Sonic Runners has been unleashed! The new teaser trailer doesn’t show any gameplay but it does take a short tour of Sonic’s history which is becoming quite a familiar sight if you’re used to Sonic reveal trailers. Check it out below:
If you click the image above you will also see the first insight into the game’s graphical style which seems to be based off Sonic Lost World. Characters also have that chunky, black outline with games like Sonic Jump have adopted.
Sonic Runners will launch on smartphones in Spring 2015. It is still unclear whether this is a Japan exclusive title.
I’d like to draw your attention to the latest episode of Shay Says. If you’re unfamiliar with the series then it’s a documentary-style video games show that deconstructs certain games of gaming franchises in a similar way to Egoraptor’s Sequelitis.
For the latest episode, Shay is taking a detailed look at the gameplay mechanics of the Sonic franchise (and when I say detailed, I mean detailed). 2 more episodes will follow that look at other aspects of the franchise.
While I wouldn’t normally recommend watching an almost feature length video about a games franchise, Shay has some incredibly interesting things to say about what works and what doesn’t regarding Sonic gameplay mechanics. He’s also one of the few people I’ve seen actively suggest alternative mechanics that might just improve the experience.
If you have the time then please take a look at the below video because it’s an extremely well made and unbiased look at what makes the Sonic franchise work so well and what doesn’t.
