New Switch Out Run Screenshots Emerge

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

A fresh batch of screenshots showcasing the M2 SEGA Ages port of Out Run for Nintendo Switch have surfaced. Check out the gallery below to see how the port is shaping up:

This port appears to be heavily based on the previous 3DS port (also by M2). It appears we have new songs with one track in particular called Radiation -Nostalgia Ver.- (perhaps a chiptune version of Radiation from Out Run 2006?), we’ve got a CRT filter that’s made to emulate the look of the original arcade cabinet and an expanded widescreen (but bordered) resolution. The car sprites are also based on the later Shenmue II port of the game which alters the car graphics to make them more indistinct from actual cars like the Ferrari Testarossa. This is likely to avoid a licensing issue.

The Switch port of SEGA Ages is still due to release in Japan sometime this year for 925 yen. There is currently no word on a release date for the rest of the world.

UPDATE 22/11/18
Eurogamer have now confirmed that Out Run will launch worldwide early next year.

Shenmue III Delayed to 2nd Half of 2018

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

shenmue3

The inevitable Shenmue III delay has arrived! Shenmue III will now release in the 2nd half of 2018.

It had previously been slated for a December 2017 release but as was previously revealed, Shenmue III was not scheduled for an appearance at this year’s E3 which put a 2017 release into doubt.

Yu Suzuki announced the delay himself in the latest Kickstarter update and has said, “By utilising new technologies, we have been able to discover new possibilities and expressions. In many ways, the game has become bigger and more beautiful than I initially expected. We do, however, need more time to deliver the game to you.”

Shenmue III will not be published by SEGA but instead by Sony. The game will eventually launch on PC and PS4.

SEGA Tunes: Audio Sprite’s Charity Remix Album

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Audio Sprite is currently in the process of creating a video game/kids TV remix album with the proceeds going towards CLIC Sargent, a charity for children’s cancer.

In a rather moving gesture which was inspired by the loss of a friend’s 11 year old brother, Audio Sprite has remixed a selection of SEGA classics which includes a Yu Suzuki medley and remixes of songs from Sonic CD and Shenmue. You can check out the work-in-progress album below:

If you think the album is worth a donation then you can visit Audio Sprite’s JustGiving page and help out a good cause.

SEGA Trademarks Shenmue III But Don’t Get Too Excited UPDATE SEGA Confirms Trademark is Fake

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

SEGA have filed a trademark for Shenmue III. This would be big news if it wasn’t for the fact that publishers do this all the time so that their intellectual properties are protected from usurpers.

The interesting thing is that SEGA are obviously still thinking about the series. If the company are aware of the public’s desire for a sequel then at least that can give us some hope that a sequel might still be in consideration/development.

More on this as we get it as the only source we have for the story is currently down due to the immense traffic they’re receiving.

UPDATE
An image of the trademark information is available on SEGAbits’ Facebook page. You can also see this below:

UPDATE 2
The trademark might also relate to the “postmortem” talk Yu Suzuki is doing at GDC 2014. This will discuss the whole of the Shenmue series an an hour-long talk translated by Mark Cerny. GDC runs from March 17th to the 21st in 2014. Sourced from Gamespot.

UPDATE 3
Blimey! More details: SEGA have trademarked Shenmue III through the company R.G.C. Jenkins & Co. This is the same company who handled the Sonic Lost World trademark. You can find it yourself by going to the OHIM website (click here) and searching for Shenmue III.

UDPATE 4
The Shenmue III trademark might be a fake. The trademark lacks an application reference number which would make the trademark legitimate. A similar hoax was recently registered with this same company on November 14th for Fallout 4. The registration was recently removed after it was proven to be a hoax.

UPDATE 5
SEGA has officially confirmed that the trademark is fake and the listing has now been removed. Full details at from Eurogamer.
