Japanese Mega Drive RPG Madō Monogatari I Receives English Language Patch

Saturday, February 15th, 2020

The Madō Monogatari series has long been a Japanese exclusive franchise, but that changes today as the Mega Drive remake of the first 3 games is now available in English for the very first time.

Western gamers will recognise the characters of Madō Monogatari from their later appearances in the Puyo Puyo franchise, but they actually debuted here. The action of Madō Monogatari is largely a traditional JRPG which is why an English language patch is so essential to play it. With this patch the game becomes Sorcery Saga I in English.

If you would like to try Madō Monogatari I in English then the patch can be downloaded now from Romhacking.net. You will need a copy of the original Madō Monogatari ROM file and you can apply the English language patch using Romhacking.net’s online ROM patching utility.

SEGA AGES Virtua Racing & Wonder Boy in Monster Land Come West June 27th

Thursday, June 6th, 2019

SEGA has finally announced when Western players will be able to get their hands on the SEGA AGES series’ Virtua Racing and Wonder Boy ports for Nintendo Switch. The titles will both be out June 27th in the West, for $7.99 each. If the other AGES titles are to go by, they’ll likely be £5.99 each on the European eShop.

This is where things get puzzling though – Western players are now missing a game! SEGA AGES Puyo Puyo, which launched in Japan before either of these titles and was previously confirmed to be on the way to Western shores, is nowhere to be found. It’s a very peculiar turn of events, as the game is fully localised (downloading it from the Japan store to an English system gives you the localised version, as with all of the AGES ports). All we can think of is that perhaps they didn’t want to launch the port so close to the recent Puyo Puyo Champions, but it’s unfortunate given AGES Puyo marks the first time the game’s English translation has ever been officially rereleased.

Either way, it’s good to see more titles from this series making their way westward, and Virtua Racing in particular is a fantastic port. We’ll let you know if anymore details come in on Puyo’s whereabouts.

Puyo Puyo eSports Coming West as Puyo Puyo Champions, Releases May 7th 2019

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019

The previously Eastern-exclusive Puyo Puyo eSports will launch in the West on May 7th 2019 as Puyo Puyo Champions, for PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.

This title is built heavily on the Puyo Puyo Tetris engine and focus heavily on both local and online multiplayer. You can check out the reveal trailer below:

Puyo Puyo Champions will release for £7.99 as a digital-only release.

SEGA AGES: Puyo Puyo Launches March 28th in Japan

Monday, March 25th, 2019

After a hefty delay, SEGA has confirmed the Nintendo Switch port of Puyo Puyo’s original arcade version, part of M2’s SEGA AGES series, will launch on March 28th in Japan.

As well as including the original Japanese arcade version of the game, for the first time ever the AGES release will include the English localisation of the title, previously speculated to be a bootleg. It’s… an interesting take on the game, to say the least. Above all else, the game also supports online play, so you can have those Mean Bean Machine matches with foes half the world away!

There’s no word on a Western release date yet but fortunately SEGA’s Western divisions are catching up, as both Gain Ground and Alex Kidd in Miracle World, the most recent games in the AGES series, will be released over here on the same day Puyo hits Japan, March 28th.

Mega Drive Mini Will Have One Game Per Series, Voting For Sonic, Puyo and Shining Game Open

Monday, February 25th, 2019

SEGA has confirmed that the Mega Drive Mini is currently planned to have one game per series – so don’t expect every Sonic game to be on there, as with most Mega Drive collections. The possibility was floated at SEGA Fes 2018 when the console was announced, but this is a more solid confirmation of the plan.

As a result of this, SEGA has decided to open up some of the game choice to the fans – asking them which game from the Sonic the Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo and Shining series should appear on the console. The options are:

Sonic the Hedgehog vs Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Puyo Puyo vs Puyo Puyo Tsu

Shining Force vs Shining Force II

The poll is available as a Twitter thread and on the Mega Drive Mini website. It’s worth mentioning also that something like Puyo’s choice may not matter for us in the West, as the system is planned to have different games per region – so we’ll probably get Puyo Puyo in the guise of Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine regardless.

SEGA AGES Gain Ground and SEGA AGES Puyo Puyo Launching in the West in Feburary

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

In a bit of a twist, SEGA America has not only confirmed that the Nintendo Switch SEGA AGES port of Gain Ground is coming west next month, but that SEGA AGES Puyo Puyo will also be launching in February too!

This is a surprise, as SEGA Japan hadn’t actually confirmed what the next title coming to the series was going to be – this is the first time SEGA America have beaten them to the punch. Given the delay in releasing the other titles, this might suggest Puyo Puyo will be dropping on the Japanese eShop later this month or earlier in February, but we’ll keep an eye out for concrete confirmation.

Gain Ground contains both the 2 player and 3 player versions of the game, and the 2 player version offers additional features such as “All-Member Mode” and other functions to mitigate the game’s brutal difficulty. Puyo Puyo has several new features, which were detailed just the other day.

We’ll update back when any concrete details get revealed. The press release also reconfirms titles such as Sonic 2, Puyo Puyo Tsu and Space Harrier for the first wave of titles, which will continue to launch throughout 2019.
