The first teaser for Sonic Runners has been unleashed! The new teaser trailer doesn’t show any gameplay but it does take a short tour of Sonic’s history which is becoming quite a familiar sight if you’re used to Sonic reveal trailers. Check it out below:

If you click the image above you will also see the first insight into the game’s graphical style which seems to be based off Sonic Lost World. Characters also have that chunky, black outline with games like Sonic Jump have adopted.

Sonic Runners will launch on smartphones in Spring 2015. It is still unclear whether this is a Japan exclusive title.

SEGA Comment on PSO2 Western Release; Simply Delayed

Friday, September 20th, 2013

SEGA have commented on the Phantasy Star Online 2 Western release situation. Yesterday a SEGA representitive apparently made a comment that a Western release of Phantasy Star Online 2 was completely out of the question.

However, Kellie Parker of SEGA America has said:

“Originally slated for an early 2013 launch, SEGA can officially confirm that PS02 has been delayed. We don’t have any specifics but will update everyone as soon as there are more details to share.”

While this obviously means the game is still not due for release in the West any time soon it does mean that a release is still on the cards. Hopefully a revised release date will be announced soon.

Phantasy Star Online 2 and Nova Unlikely to be Released in the West

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

SEGA have announced they have no plans to release either Phantasy Star Online 2 or Phantasy Star Nova in the West. A comment from a SEGA America representative has announced that “there are currently no plans to release Phantasy Star Nova in the western market. Should this change, we will ensure the information is shared as soon as possible.”

TSSZ have also been in contact with a SEGA employee who has also revealed that despite there actually being a fully English-translated version of Phantasy Star Online 2 there are still no plans to bring it to the West. The English version of PSO2 has actually been developed for English-speaking regions of Asia.

English Version of Phantasy Star Online 2 Being Developed for South-East Asia

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

SEGA have sparked a deal with Asiasoft to develop an English-language version of Phantasy Star Online 2 for release in South-East Asia regions. Asiasoft support games released in Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Singapore.

A Western release for Phantasy Star Online 2 is still in doubt, but at least an English language version of the game will now exist.

Phantasy Star Online 2 Delayed in the West Due to Localisation Issues

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Phantasy Star Online 2’s Western release has been delayed from its’ original “early 2013” status due to issues surrounding the localisation.

A SEGA representitive has been quoted with, “Originally slated for an early 2013 launch, Sega can officially confirm that PS02 has been delayed. We don’t have any specifics but will update everyone as soon as there are more details to share.”

So that’s a bummer. The free-to-play PC version is available to play in Japanese but those hoping for an English-friendly version of the game (or an English version of the PS Vita release for that matter), they’re going to have to wait.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 Screenshots Roll In, More Details Confirmed

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

We can finally see what Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 will look like! And what a surprising turn of events this is; the game now uses a fully 3D engine instead of using pre-rendered graphics for the foreground tiles and items like the previous game. Check it out:

Eagle-eyed Sonic fans will be intrigued to see Metal Sonic riding the rocket that Tails flies from Sonic the Fighters; nostalgia!

Also confirmed for the game is 2 player offline and online co-op play with Tails. This isn’t your standard Sonic 2 type co-op play either; Sonic and Tails have unique combination skills and attacks that give them a greater advantage than they do alone.
