Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming to Steam on December 10th

Thursday, December 5th, 2019

There’s not much longer to wait for Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD’s Steam release – because it’s actually out next week!

The game’s Steam page now confirms a launch date of December 10th. And to sweeten the deal, there’ll be a 20% off deal on the game until December 17th, putting the price at £19.99 (down from £24.99). For those unaware, Banana Blitz is a remake of the first Nintendo Wii outing for the series, but with 100% less motion controls. Party games have also been slimmed down to a more curated selection, level design has been tweaked to suit the new controls better, and perhaps most notably there’s a new unlockable character in the form of Sonic the Hedgehog. The Steam version will also seemingly add features, such as a Photo Mode.

Film Distributors’ Association Lists Sonic the Hedgehog Movie for a December 13th 2019 Release in the UK

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

The Film Distributors’ Association, the UK body for theatrical film distributors, have listed the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie on their site. Notably, it’s been given a later release date than the previously reported November 15th 2019 launch, suggesting the film will launch in the UK on the later date of Friday December 13th 2019.

While films releasing later in the UK is nothing particularly new, this is somewhat notable; as it puts the film a week before the projected release date for Star Wars: Episode IX. Perhaps Paramount are betting on Sonic’s historic popularity in UK stacking up to Disney’s holiday juggernaut? It’s no doubt a risky move, but with a relatively star-studded team behind the Sonic film (including Neal Moritz of the Fast and the Furious series, and Tim Miller of Deadpool), whether it’ll pay off is anyone’s guess at this point.

Video Spotlight: It’s the First Sonic Boom Fire & Ice Trailer Since the Delay!

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

E3 is right around the corner and now we’ve got a brand new E3 trailer of Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice for the 3DS. This is the first look at the game since it was delayed for a year to give it, “the time and polish needed”. Has the delay been worth it? You be the judge:

That definitely looks like a sequel to Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal to me.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice launches on 3DS in September this year. Those lucky Americans can also pre-order a special edition which comes with a bonus DVD that contains some select episodes of the TV show.
