Lost Judgment DLC Announced, Including Additional Master System Games and Playable Kaito

Friday, September 3rd, 2021

RGG Studio has revealed the release schedule for the upcoming Lost Judgment’s DLC content, spreading out into Spring 2022.

At launch, the Detective Essentials pack will be released. As well as an extra boss fight, more girls for Yagami to woo, and some content for side-activities such as skateboarding and drone racing, you’ll also get access to additional Master System titles to play ingame. You’ll get Fantasy Zone II: The Tears of Opa Opa, SDI, Alien Syndrome and… Darius II! It’s good to see SEGA’s love-in with Taito’s shooter series continuing.

On October 26th, the School Stories pack will add new outfits, new battles with Yagami’s allies in sparring settings, and the ability to take a new fighting style to the streets.

Finally and most significantly, Spring 2022 will see the launch of a new campaign starring the ever-lovable Kaito, Yagami’s best friend. This mode is estimated to clock in at 10 hours of additional story content.

Digital Deluxe Edition owners will get the first two packs as they release, while Digital Ultimate Edition owners will get all three.

Lost Judgment launches on September 24th for Playstation 4/5 and Xbox One/Series. Digital Deluxe buyers will get access to the game on September 20th.

Sonic Colours: Rise of the Wisps – Part 2 Released | Video Spotlight

Thursday, August 26th, 2021

The second part of the Sonic Colours Ultimate promotional animation, Sonic Colours: Rise of the Wisps, has been released via YouTube.

Via SEGA PR:

In today’s climactic episode, temperatures rise as Sonic and the Jade Wisp clash with Dr. Eggman’s robotic henchman and the Blue Blur’s evil doppelganger, Metal Sonic. The duo must attempt to save the Wisps from  Dr. Eggman’s clutches before he harnesses their power for his own diabolical plans. It’s a race against time as Sonic and Jade fight to thwart Dr. Eggman’s plans to take over the universe.

It’s a fun watch, with some lovely voice work from Roger Craig Smith and Kate Higgins on show too.

Sonic Colours Ultimate will be launching September 9th, for Xbox, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Epic Games.

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania Adds Persona 5’s Morgana As A DLC Character

Wednesday, August 25th, 2021

As part of Gamescom 2021’s Opening Night Live presentation, it’s been announced that Morgana from Persona 5 will be a DLC character in Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania. He’ll cost $4.99 USD on release.

Banana Mania is quickly and somewhat unexpectedly becoming a big ol’ SEGA crossover, with Jet Set Radio’s Beat, Yakuza’s Kiryu, and Sonic & Tails previously being announced. This new reveal adds Atlus into the mix, too!

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania launches on October 1st.

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.

New Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Update Now Available, Adds 4 New Characters, Multiplayer for Challenge Mode, And Accessibility Options

Thursday, February 4th, 2021

A new update is now available for Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, adding yet another batch of characters to the roster. In particular, we get some real fan-favourites in this wave; Yuu & Rei, Possessed Klug, Serilly, and Rafisol. They bring with them 3 new music tracks, and 20 icons for your online profile.

In addition, you can now adjust colour options including saturation, as a means of improving accessibility, and the previously single-player only Challenge Modes can now be played in multiplayer too! While not specifically mentioned on SEGA’s end, we’ve also been informed that some of the game’s lag issues have been cleared up now too, which is much appreciated.

Judgment Coming to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC via… Stadia, Launches April 23rd Worldwide

Monday, February 1st, 2021

SEGA’s detective-based Yakuza spinoff Judgment is making its way to modern platforms, with an upgraded release including all DLC content.

The game will now boast a 60fps framerate, which will represent a far cry from the somewhat iffy performance of the original PS4 release. In addition, there’ll be improved load times across the board.

There’s a catch though. While PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X owners get to sink their teeth into the remaster, sadly the PC version will be restricted to Google’s streaming platform Stadia for the time being. To make matters worse, SEGA has confirmed to RPG Site that there’s no plan for a conventional PC version, nor an upgrade path for owners of the PS4 version. It’s certainly a shame to see, as even back when the game launched, RGG Studio said they’d be interested in doing a PC conversion.

At any rate, there’s not long to wait; the remaster will launch on April 23rd, worldwide.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon’s Playstation 5 Version Will Release March 2nd 2021, Free Upgrade for Owners of PS4 Version, Other Versions Now Releasing Together on November 10th

Monday, September 28th, 2020

UPDATE: Romain Mahut of GameBlog has reported confirmation that owners of the physical version of Yakuza: Like a Dragon on Playstation 4 will also be eligible for the free upgrade. Original article continues below.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon will come to the Playstation 5 on March 2nd 2021. Alongside this announcement, the first footage of the game running on PS5 has been released, and it certainly looks quite nice!

In addition, owners of Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s digital PS4 version will be able to get the PS5 version for free once it releases. This is similar to the situation on Microsoft’s platforms, where Like a Dragon will support Xbox Smart Delivery.

The first footage of the game running on PS5 is available here. Gematsu have also provided PS5 footage of the game’s battles.

Also announced is that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will now launch on November 10th across all platforms, via Gematsu. Previously the game was slated for November 10th on Xbox Series X/S and November 13th on other platforms.

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2: The Ultimate Puzzle Match Announced, Coming December 8th to Current and Next-Gen Consoles

Wednesday, August 26th, 2020

The latest Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase has announced Puyo Puyo Tetris 2: The Ultimate Puzzle Match. It’ll be coming to a slew of consoles: Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

The game is a direct sequel to the first Puyo Puyo Tetris, and will include a brand new Adventure Mode with a new Story, as well as new characters.

As well as the standard Puyo (and Tetris) fare, there’ll also be new modes, such as “Skill Battle” (which actually originated in Puyo Puyo Chronicle on 3DS). This mode will involve ‘Skill Cards’ – you can get some skill cards as a pre-order bonus for the game, including some based on Sonic the Hedgehog.

The game’s official website can be found here.

New Yakuza: Like a Dragon “How Will You Rise” Trailer Shows Off Job System, Release Date Confirmed As November 13th for PS4, Xbox One and Steam

Monday, August 24th, 2020

A new trailer has been released for Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s upcoming Western release, showcasing the ‘Job’ system. The game allows you to spec into 19 different jobs, that affect not only your abilities and fighting style, but your appearance too. So if you feel like kicking people with the power of dance, you can do that – likewise, you can hit them around the head with a scalding frying pan as a Chef.

Crucially, the new trailer also reveals when Western players will finally get their hands on RGG Studio’s latest; November 13th, for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam. The Xbox Series X version is set to launch at some point in November, presumably on or around the as-of-yet unconfirmed launch date of the console, and at an unspecified later time for Playstation 5.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon Coming to Playstation 5 At a Later Date, English Dub Announced Featuring George Takei

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2020

SEGA has confirmed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be making its way to Playstation 5 some time after its release on PS4 and Xbox One/Xbox Series X. SEGA are currently making plans for PS4 owners to be able to upgrade to the PS5 version once it becomes available.

That’s arguably not the biggest news however, as Yakuza: Like a Dragon will also be receiving an English dub; the first time the series has done so since the PS2 days. Even more surprising, is that beloved actor George Takei will be lending his vocal chords to the game as Masumi Arakawa. Kaiji Tang will play protagonist Ichiban Kasuga.

Also revealed was a pre-order bonus. The Legends Costume Pack allows you to dress up the characters as those from previous Yakuza games, just in case you can’t let go of Kiryu’s iconic suit.

The game still doesn’t have a solid release date, but we’d expect it to land later this year. In addition to the above trailer, a video featuring Kaiji Tang and George Takei has also been released.

IGN also have a list of the current known English cast.
