Details of Shinobi III 3DS Revealed

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

The 3DS re-release of Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master has some additional features which have just been detailed.

Along with the obvious stereoscopic visuals, quick save and round select features have been added. You can also choose to play either the Western or Japanese versions of the game.

The big addition is the inclusion of assigning control to an individual button instead of sharing them accross the Mega Drive original’s 3 button format. You can now assign the commands for jump, close range attack, shuriken attack, defend and ninjutsu to specific buttons.

Rodea the Sky Soldier Amazingly Not Dead

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

Prope’s NiGHTS-like Wii and 3DS game Rodea the Sky Soldier is still due for release despite being announced in 2010. We even spoke to Yuji Naka back in 2011 and he confirmed that the finished game had been submitted to Kadowaka Games which meant we all assumed it was almost time to go gold.

Yoshimi Yasuda who is the president of Kadowaka Games has revealed that Kadowaka who are porting the Wii version to the 3DS were having trouble adapting the control scheme. Yasuda also said that the version is about 70% finished and that there will be more information in the near future.

Project 575 is an iOS App and Vita Game

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

SEGA Japan have been teasing Project 575 for quite a while now, but we finally have the full details on what it is. Project 575 is actually 2 separate games that work off each other.

The first is called Song Composer 575 and it takes the form of an iOS app. The app allows you to create songs with the Vocaloid software. It introduces two new voices called Azuki Masaoka and Matcha Kobayashi. You can also interact with the new characters by watching them dance, dressing them up in different outfit and enabling an augmented reality feature which allows you to take photos with the characters.

The PS Vita game is called Song Builder 575 and takes the form of a rhythm/puzzle game. As the songs play you have to read the lyrics and insert the correct syllables in fill in the blanks. Whatever syllable you choose will be sung by the in-game character giving you customisation options for the song. Song Builder 575 will also be loaded with songs created with Song Composer 575 but only the highest rated songs will make the cut.
