Several SEGA Soundtracks Seemingly Sliced from Spotify

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Some unfortunate news for the musically inclined – several SEGA OSTs that were previously available for streaming on Spotify have suddenly vanished from the service.

SEGA doesn’t appear to have mentioned the removals on any social media accounts or statements, making the removals rather mysterious. It’s a pretty sizeable set of removals too; the affected soundtracks include:

  • Alex Kidd
  • Alexandria Bloodshow
  • Chain Chronicle
  • Fantasy Zone
  • Galaxy Force II/Thunder Blade
  • NiGHTS into dreams
  • Out Run
  • Power Drift
  • Rhythm Thief
  • Samurai Bloodshow
  • Skies Of Arcadia
  • Space Harrier Complete Collection
  • Super Hang-On
  • Virtua Fighter 1 – 5
  • WORLD CLUB Champion Football

It’s very unfortunate to see, particularly with SEGA PR previously stating they were looking into adding newer SEGA soundtracks to the service. Interestingly however, some of the titles appear to have changed into Japanese characters – suggesting perhaps the albums have been restricted to Japan.

We’ll let you know if the removals are reversed, or should a statement crop up. In the mean time, it’s back to the CDs for us.

[With thanks to @CorBond for compiling the list of removed tracks, as well as further investigating the extent of the removals]

Yakuza, Virtua Fighter and Sonic costumes Announced for Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5 Dancing Star Night

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

Collaboration costumes for the upcoming Persona Dancing games have been announced at SEGA Fes – turns out the recent poll on the matter was a red herring, as all the listed series are getting represented!

Persona 3 Dancing will receive costumes based on Virtua Fighter, whereas Persona 5 Dancing will receive costumes based on Yakuza. The latter is with the exception of Morgana, Persona 5’s adorable kitty mascot; he’ll be getting a Sonic outfit, because of course! These costumes will be DLC – there’s currently no release date.

There’s still no word on a Western release for these titles – let’s hope we hear something soon!

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax will release in North America on August the 25th.

A European release date has yet to be set in stone but the North American release date allows us to ballpark the EU one. Keep your eyes set on the 28th of August as EU games are generally released on a Friday. Those lucky Americans also get a physical release of the game on PS3 and Vita while us Europeans only get a digital release.

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is a 2D one-on-one fighter based on various manga franchises like Sword Art Online and Accel World. SEGA cameos are also included by way of Akira Yuki from Virtua Fighter and Selvaria Bles from Valkyria Chronicles.

First Screens of Akira Yuki in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax

Friday, February 28th, 2014

There you have it; Akira Yuki from Virtua Fighter in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax!

Akira appears as a part of the 20th anniversary celebrations of the release of the original Virtua Fighter. His appearance in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is that of a boss character who is partnered with Pai Chan as a support character.

As Akira only appears as a boss character he is not playable in the arcade game. Fingers crossed this will change if the game gets a home console release.

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is out in Japanese arcades this Spring.

Monday, February 10th, 2014

There’s quite a bit of new information floating around regarding SEGA’s new arcade fighting game Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax.

While the game features a cast of characters from various anime and manga series’, SEGA fans will be interested in the Sonic the Hedgehog stage (see above). The graphics seem to be taken from Green Hill in Sonic Generations.

Also announced is that Akira from Virtua Fighter will appear as a boss character. Other character announcements include the inclusion of Kirito from Sword Art Online.

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is due to hit Japanese arcades this spring with demos available to play at the Japan Amusement Expo on February 14th and 15th at Makuhari Messe near Tokyo.

Virtua Fighter 20th Anniversary Website Appears

Friday, November 29th, 2013

SEGA of Japan have launched a 20th anniversary Virtua Fighter website. You can access the website by clicking here.

The website is looking a bit sparse at the moment with the only real content being a video of the original game, but the fact that SEGA are acknowledging Virtua Fighter’s 20th anniversary must mean they have something up their sleeve. New merchandise? A sale on existing games? A whole new game altogether!? Only time will tell.

Keep an eye on the website as it also contains a blog which is bound to be updated in the near future. Excitement!
