Shenmue I & II Announced for Release on PC, PS4 & Xbox One in 2018

Saturday, April 14th, 2018

SEGA have revealed that Shenmue I & II are being remastered in high definition for PS4, Xbox One and PC, with a release due for 2018.

These updated versions of the classic Dreamcast titles are being developed by D3T, the studio behind the recent SEGA Mega Drive Classics hub on PC. These versions also boast an updated user interface, a choice of classic or modern controls, both Japanese and English game audio and fully scalable resolutions.

Check out the reveal trailer by clicking below:

Shenmue I & II will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One later in 2018.

Sonic Generations and Panzer Dragoon Orta Coming to Xbox One Backwards Compatability

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

As part of their expanding line of backwards compatible titles, Microsoft has announced SEGA’s Sonic Generations and Panzer Dragoon Orta are headed to the Xbox One this month.

Sonic Generations is being made available today, and will include enhancements for Xbox One X users – notably, it now runs at 4K (check that out here). Perhaps more notable though is Orta’s appearance on the console; it’s SEGA’s first contribution to the original Xbox backward compatibility for Xbox One. SEGA supporting the feature relatively early in its life may give some hope to those who’ve been looking out for a possible Jet Set Radio Future re-release – as theoretically, it could be brought to the Xbox One in the same way as Orta.

Panzer Dragoon Orta launches for Xbox One backwards compatibility on April 17th. Also of note, while not technically SEGA related, is that Blinx the Time Sweeper is being added to the service too. Blink was the brainchild of Naoto Ohshima, the creator of Sonic and NiGHTS; it might be worth a look for fans of those series.

Sonic Mania Plus Revealed for Summer 2018 Release, Mighty and Ray Added as Playable Characters

Friday, March 16th, 2018

Sonic Mania is getting an enhanced physical release called Sonic Mania Plus. This new version adds Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel as playable characters. Mighty hasn’t been playable in a Sonic game since 1995’s Knuckles’ Chaotix and Ray hasn’t been playable since his one and only appearance in the Japan exclusive arcade title SEGASonic the Hedgehog which was released back in 1993.

This new package also includes something called Encore Mode, a new 4 player competition mode as well as a 32 page art book, a reversible cover featuring a faux-Mega Drive/Genesis look and holographic packaging. That’s quite a substantial upgrade over the previously digital-only release.

Sonic Mania Plus will release for PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch this summer.

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.

Shining Resonance Refrain coming West for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

Shining? Is… is that really you?

Marking the end of the series’ over 10-year absence from Western shores, SEGA has announced Shining Resonance Refrain, a remaster of the PS3 title Shining Resonance. The remaster includes all previously released DLC, as well as a new ‘Refrain Mode’ that adds brand-new content. For those wondering, Shining had a bit of an image overhaul after Camelot broke ties with SEGA – so if you’re expecting something along the lines of the classic Mega Drive Shining series, this might not be what you’re after.

One slightly odd thing to note – while SEGA hasn’t localised any entries in the series for over 10 years, the fighting game spin off Blade Arcus from Shining: Battle Arena was localised, by Studio Saisenzen, and is available on Steam.

The game will also be getting a launch edition with a reversible metal slipcase – this will also be available in Europe, which is always nice to see. SEGA has also confirmed that the game will receive an English dub, with the option to use Japanese audio also being available.

There’s also a trailer, available below:

Video Spotlight: Sonic Forces Story Trailer

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

A new trailer for Sonic Forces has gone live and it details more of the story that will feature in the game. Eggman appears to have conquered Sonic’s world but is clearly unsatisfied that he still isn’t rid of Sonic and his friends. This has lead him to awaken a new villain called Infinite who is helping Eggman and his army who are now encroaching on Sonic’s home in the Green Hill Zone.

Even though this new trailer is heavy on the plot, there is also lots of new gameplay footage to be seen. Check it out by clicking below:

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:
