Video Spotlight | Sonic Colours Gets “HD Upgrades Spotlight”, Showing New Modes and Features

Thursday, July 8th, 2021

A new trailer has been released for Sonic Colours Ultimate, the upcoming remaster of 2010’s Wii entry in the blue hedgehog’s 3D exploits. It focuses on what new features Ultimate will bring to the table over the original game, and there’s actually a hefty amount on show.

First up is the obvious graphical changes; the lighting is redone, the resolution is boosted to up to 4K, and the game now runs at 60 frames per second instead of the original release’s 30. Also shown off for the first time is Rival Rush mode, in which you face Metal Sonic in a race to the finish.

The ‘Park Tokens’ we’ve been seeing in various screenshots are elaborated on here too. They can be used to buy new cosmetics to change up Sonic’s look a tad, with auras, different boost effects, and new glove and shoe accessories. In addition, we’ve gotten our first look at how Team Sonic Racing’s Jade Ghost Wisp has been implemented; it’ll let you pass through walls at certain points of a stage, offering new shortcuts. You can also customise the control layout for the game; helpful as the original Classic Controller layout for Colours might not be to everyone’s taste.

Tails Save is also shown off, though it had been shown in other media prior. Essentially as long as you have a Tails Token handy, the two-tailed fox will scoop you out of a pit with no penalty should you fall down one. 100-Count Rings are the final new tidbit shown, and give Sonic a brief burst of the classic invincibility sparkles when collected.

In terms of hearing, there is one more thing. As previously noted, the soundtrack will be fully remixed. It’s not known yet if an option to use the original music is included.

On the whole, it’s quite a slew of new features; and it seems there may be more to come, given this is only Spotlight #1. Sonic Colours: Ultimate releases September 7th for Xbox, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Epic Games Store.

SEGA has very kindly let us check out Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, the latest entry in the beloved fighting game series. We’ll have a full review coming in due time, but to whet your appetite we’ve captured some fresh footage of the game in action.

Next Mainline Sonic the Hedgehog Title Officially Teased, Coming 2022

Thursday, May 27th, 2021

It’s been a long time coming, but the next Sonic the Hedgehog title has been officially teased, during the Sonic Central broadcast for Sonic’s 30th Anniversary.

It’ll be coming to PS4 and PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch and PC. And… that’s just about all we know! The trailer shows Sonic running through a rather lush forest, and the tease of a mysterious emblem.

Whatever it is, it’ll be coming in 2022. Hopefully we’ll hear more later this year.

Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown Launches June 1st on PS4

Tuesday, May 25th, 2021

Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown has finally been officially announced. The definitive version of SEGA’s beloved fighter will hit Playstation 4 on June 1st, as a digital exclusive.

The trailer points to this being a collaboration between AM2 and RGG Studio. Whether it’ll come to any more platforms in the future remains to be seen; there have also been rumours swirling that the game will be part of next month’s Playstation Plus offerings, which would make sense given the release date.

Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World Gets a New Trailer, Q2 2021 Release Window

Monday, January 25th, 2021

The upcoming remake of Monster World IV, Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World, has received a new trailer and a fresh round of details to go along with it.

The trailer is notable as is showcases a fair improvement over the previous ones; Asha’s animations appear to have been reworked, and on the whole it looks a bit nicer. The latest press release makes particular mention that the developers have been taking on feedback, and given the frosty reception to the initial showings, it’s sure looking like it.

The trailer also gives us more of the Japanese voice acting being added to the game, as well as a new Q2 2021 release window. There’s also a reaffirmation that physical copies of the game will include the original Mega Drive title on a separate cartridge for Nintendo Switch, and as a download for PS4; Gematsu reports that this version will now be available at retail, whereas previously it seemed like it’d be exclusive to Strictly Limited, with only 3000 copies being made.

Japan has received a more solid release date of April 22nd, and will also be getting physical versions; their Special Pack will include two artbooks.

Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World is launching for Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4 later this year.

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Content Update Available Today, Adds Sonic The Hedgehog And Several Other Characters, Raid Battle Mode

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2’s first major update has been released, and it brings along with it 4 new characters. Alongside fan-favourite characters such as Lidelle, Ms Accord and Ocean Prince from the Puyo Puyo Fever titles, Sonic the Hedgehog himself has joined the Puyo Tetris battlefield – and it’s not a mod this time!

Other additions include a raid-style boss battle mode, inspired by a similar feature in Puyo Puyo Chronicle. You can earn Skill Battle cards not available through Adventure Mode by teaming up with other players to take on boss characters. Speaking of Skill Battle, the Sonic-themed cards have now been added into the main game, too.

There’s also four new music tracks, to go along with the new characters; including Tropical Resort, from Sonic Colours.

This… certainly came out of nowhere. We suspect this is what SEGA Europe were teasing for tomorrow’s stream, in which case they weren’t kidding about it being special. Currently only the Japanese announcement is available, but our Playstation 4 downloaded the new update, and Sonic and company are indeed present and accounted for.

Wonder Boy: Asha In Monster World Physical Editions Announced, All Editions Include Original Mega Drive Version

Thursday, December 17th, 2020

Upcoming Monster World IV remake Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World will be getting a few physical editions of varying complexity, from Strictly Limited Games.

The contents of each pack vary; there’s the regular edition which simply gets you a physical copy of the game for either Nintendo Switch or Playstation 4 (there is no physical option for the PC version), followed by the Collector’s Edition which comes with the entire kitchen sink – including your very own squishable Pepelogoo. Finally there’s the Mega Collector’s Edition, which has the contents of the CE as well as some more extras on top; including a sticker, pin badge, and even an exclusive statue of Asha and Pepelogoo.

Most notably though, all physical versions will include the original Mega Drive version of Monster World IV, ported to the respective platform. For Switch owners, it’ll be included on the cartridge, while PS4 owners will receive a download code for the MD title.

According to Gematsu,  pre-orders will open later today. They also have a detailed run-down of what each edition contains. If you want one you’ll have to act though; even the regular edition is limited.

Persona 5 Strikers Officially Announced For The West, Releases for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam on February 23rd 2021

Tuesday, December 8th, 2020

If you’re looking for the largest range of league of legends accounts for sale then you have to visit this site https://www.unrankedsmurfs.com/. They have hundreds of lol accounts with rare skins for sale, as well as plenty of lol smurf accounts for various regions. If you want to buy league of legends account for your friends to play on the rift then be sure to check out their account store. With hundreds of level 30 League of Legends accounts for sale, there is no better place to buy your LoL accounts online than Unranked Smurfs with its excellent buyer protections and payment security, as well as full account information provided with every order.

Persona 5 Strikers, knowing as Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers in Japan, has finally had a Western release confirmed. Better yet, it’ll also be coming to PC via Steam now!

Produced by Koei-Tecmo’s Omega Force, what we have here is essentially Persona 5 Musou. The game acts as a sequel to the original game (that is, the not-Royal version), to the point one of the Japanese trailers briefly flashed “P52” on the screen. Now the Phantom Thieves are tasked with helping an aggressive detective solve a new mystery, or Joker will be arrested… again. It’s certainly an interesting genre shift for a sequel, but Persona 5 Strikers seems to push the boat out a lot more than just being a typical Warriors game with the P5 license slapped on. We’re excited to get our hands on it!

The game will launch on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC via Steam on February 23rd 2021. There’ll also be a Steelbook for the game, but right now it appears that will be exclusive to Best Buy in America, and only available for the Nintendo Switch version. The Digital Deluxe version of the game allows you to play it 4 days early, and includes extra DLC content, a 40-track soundtrack, a digital artbook, and behind-the-scenes video.

The game’s website is available here.
