Wednesday, September 14th, 2022

A new Yakuza side story game has been revealed called Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name. The game will explore what happened to Kiryu Kazuma between Yakuza 6: The Song of Life and Like a Dragon 8. The game is set to launch at some point in 2023.

It has been reported that Like a Dragon Gaiden will be a smaller entry in the franchise – roughly half the size of a typical Yakuza game. The game is due to launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.

Like a Dragon 8 Announced, Kiryu Kazuma Returns

Wednesday, September 14th, 2022

Like a Dragon 8 has been formally revealed by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio for an early 2024 release. It will follow the turn-based RPG action of Yakuza: Like a Dragon but will feature 2 protagonists in the form of Ichiban Kasuga and a returning Kiryu Kazama, now looking particularly more aged since his last appearance in Yakuza 6: The Song of Life.

The Yakuza name has been officially dropped in Western territories, with the much more literal ‘Like a Dragon’ now being the franchise name going forward. The same applies to Like a Dragon: Ishin! and Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name which was also revealed today.

New Sonic Content Coming to Fall Guys, Including Costumes and ‘Bean Hill Zone’ Event Stage

Tuesday, August 9th, 2022

The previously released Sonic and Knuckles costumes are returning to Fall Guys this week, and they’ve got company. The recently gone Free-to-Play take on the Takeshi’s Castle format is getting a slew of new content themed around SEGA’s spiky blue mascot, including costumes of Tails, Dr. Eggman and Super Sonic. A new event will also be added to the game, tasking you with collecting rings in… Bean Hill Zone. Now that’s a pun we can get behind.

There’ll also be other goodies up for grabs, such as nameplates and accessories. The Sonic-themed fesitivites won’t last forever though, as the event only runs from August 11th to August 15th; so you’ll have to be quick to score everything, which we suppose is pretty fitting.

We’ve also got some key art to celebrate the event from Epic Games’ PR, which you can check out after the jump. (more…)

“Sonic Origins: Speed Strats” Gameplay Trailer Released | Video Spotlight

Thursday, June 16th, 2022

The first episode of “Sonic Origins: Speed Strats” has been released, a new series of trailers that offers a deeper look into the upcoming Sonic compilation coming to modern platforms.

This edition includes a look at the various modes and options on offer across the entire package, as detailed below (via SEGA PR)

Classic Mode – For a trip down memory lane, Classic Mode features the original game presentation in 4×3 with remastered visuals, finite lives and game overs. Classic Mode is available for all four titles and is unlocked from the start.

Anniversary Mode – If you are looking for something new, Anniversary Mode features a full 16×9 screen display and an infinite number of lives to keep the fun going without any game overs. Anniversary Mode is available for all four titles and is unlocked from the start.

Story Mode – Combines all four games into one adventure. Start with Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and end with Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles.

Animations / Cutscenes – Sonic Origins includes all-new animated opening and ending cutscenes for each game, connecting all of Sonic’s classic adventures.

Boss Rush Mode – Battle Dr. Eggman, Metal Sonic and other challenging foes in Boss Rush Mode.

Mission Mode – Take on various missions in all four games. The better you perform the higher your rank will be.

Mirror Mode – Once unlocked, experience classic levels in a brand new way – backwards.

Coins – Enjoy new rewards by collecting coins in Anniversary Mode or completing missions in Mission Mode. If players fail a special stage in Anniversary Mode, coins can be used to retry the stage instantly. Coins can also be used to redeem content in the museum.

Museum – Check out a ton of exciting music, concept art, videos and never-before-seen content found in the Premium Collection Vault.

Notable points in the trailer include a look at a new intro for Tails in Sonic 3 & Knuckles (we actually see him land the plane this time!), and re-iterating that Sonic CD will retains its original intro and outro cutscenes, fully remastered – in addition to the brand new cutscenes made for the game’s Story Mode.

As a cool aside, this trailer was produced by Strategy Guide PR, and as a result the narration was provided by Evan from our friends over at TailsChannel. It’s nice to see SEGA finding ways to bring fans into the fold, especially given the remasters in Origins started out as a simple pitch from a fan that then exploded into something more as the years went by.

Sonic Origins launches June 23rd on PS4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.

New 8 Minute Sonic Frontiers Hands-On Video From IGN & More New Gameplay Footage From Sonic Central | Video Spotlight

Tuesday, June 7th, 2022

We’ve got a double dose of Sonic Frontiers gameplay footage to look at today. IGN have uploaded an 8 minute gameplay video full of hands-on impressions from Mitchell Saltzman of IGN who’s been given 4 hours of play time with an early build of the game. You can watch this via the embed below:

IGN share a lot of new information about the game in this hands-on. Sonic and friends are transported to the game’s new location through a wormhole and Sonic quickly gets separated from the crew and has to explore the new world himself. Sonic also earns XP which can be spent on new abilities. Areas in the game are also called Open Zones which seems to suggest that the game isn’t entirely open world – focusing more on larger, self-contained areas.

We also get more in-game footage of Sonic Frontiers in action via the most recent Sonic Central video which you can also see via the embed below:

As you can see, more larger enemies are showcased in this footage, as well as different times of day.

We also get the news that Sonic Frontiers will receive a short animated prequel film called Sonic Frontiers Prologue. Sonic Frontiers Prologue will launch before the game’s release later this year.

Sonic Frontiers will launch on PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC in “Holiday 2022”.
