What is SEGA Rally Online Arcade?

Friday, January 28th, 2011

Sony Computer Entertainment Korea has filed a listing on the Korean Game Rating Board for a game titled ‘SEGA Rally Online Arcade’. This went active on the 26th of January 2011. There is no further information beyond its’ ‘E for Everyone’ rating.

Could this be a port of SEGA Rally 3 for X-Box Live Arcade and Playstation Network? Only time will tell. I for one am looking forward to some more SEGA Rally action. 2007’s SEGA Rally Revo was an overlooked wonder.

Sonic Colours Soundtrack Being Released on Western iTunes

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Now here’s a welcome first for SEGA! The Sonic Colours soundtrack ‘Vivid Sound x Hybrid Colors’ is to be released on iTunes in North America and Europe! Game soundtracks are becoming more and more difficult to find on Western shores so the digital distribution of the Sonic Colours soundtrack is a welcome alternative.

Here’s the pricing for both North America and UK:

Individual tracks: $1.29 / £0.99
Per Disc: $9.99 / £7.99

That’s a massive saving on importing and you don’t have to risk getting a massive custom’s charge (I got stuck with an additional £20 on top of the original £40 order; ouch!).

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Prope, the studio funded by SEGA and lead by Yuji Naka, have announced Rodea: The Sky Soldier. The game will be released for Wii and 3DS but no date has currently been set.

The game is meant to be the spirtual successor to NiGHTS into dreams… and follows a similar gameplay style based on flying. Rodea also adds an on-rails shooting element to the gameplay which is also very reminiscent of the Panzer Dragoon games.

There is currently no word on whether SEGA will publish the game or not as SEGA opted out of publishing Prope’s last game, Ivy the Kiwi?
