Monday, December 9th, 2019

The previously leaked 4K 60fps remasters of Bayonetta and Vanquish for Xbox One are now joined by confirmation of a PS4 port. What’s also interesting is that these ports will come bundled together in a boxed release while we only had confirmation of a digital release previously. Good news for fans of games in boxes.

We also have solid confirmation that this bundle will release on the 18th of February 2020 for both Xbox One and PS4 in North America and Europe. Check out the reveal trailer for the bundle by clicking here.

Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami & Yakuza Kiwami 2 Coming to Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass in 2020

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

In a pleasant surprise for Xbox fans, SEGA’s beloved Yakuza series will finally be making touchdown on the Xbox One for the first time – as Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2 all hit Microsoft’s console in Early 2020.

If that wasn’t enough, the three games will also be added to Xbox’s Game Pass subscription service. This means if you’re subscribed to Game Pass, you get all three games for as long as you pay for the subscription, along with the frankly pretty staggering number of other games on the service. This also goes for the PC version of Game Pass, which likely means the three games will be coming to the Microsoft Store around the same time as the Xbox versions launch.

The only date given was “Early 2020”. It’s fantastic news that even more people will be able to experience the adventures of Kazuma Kiryu – now how much do we have to bribe SEGA for an oh-so-elusive Nintendo Switch port?

New Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Trailer Confirms Unlockable Costumes… and Sonic the Hedgehog

Tuesday, October 15th, 2019

SEGA has released a new “Special Announcement” trailer for Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. It confirms the monkeys will have alternate costumes in the game, including some referencing other games in the series, such as Baby’s Secret Agent costume from Super Monkey Ball 3D for the 3DS.

But the real special announcement here is the confirmation of one of the worst kept secrets in recent SEGA memory – Sonic the Hedgehog has been added to the game as an unlockable character, in his Classic design! This was actually leaked three times, first through achievements that referred to him and then through a datamine of the recently released Japanese demo, and finally just earlier today through a leaked trailer. However we now have official confirmation, and our first look at him in action! There’s no word on how to unlock him in the game as of yet, but given this is Monkey Ball we can’t imagine it’ll be a walk in the park.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD launches October 29th for Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC port coming later in Winter.

Disney to Re-Release Mega Drive Versions of Aladdin and The Lion King in New Budget Collection This October 29th

Wednesday, August 28th, 2019

UPDATE
In light of this announcement, Disney have removed the previously available Steam versions of The Lion King and Aladdin from sale. Their storefront pages are still on Steam, but the option to buy them is no longer there. Thanks to Saturn Memories for the tip.

ORIGINAL STORY
Disney and Digital Eclipse will re-release the Mega Drive versions of Aladdin and The Lion King in a new budget-release collection for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on October 29th 2019.

This new compilation also includes the Game Boy versions of the games alongside the SNES version of The Lion King. The SNES version of Aladdin isn’t included, likely due to a licensing issue. The SNES version of Aladdin is a completely different game when compared to its Mega Drive equivalent, and it was developed by Capcom.

The collection also boasts a 15 second rewind button, a previously unreleased “Final Cut” of Aladdin and the 1993 trade show version of Aladdin. Aladdin is famous for being the 3rd best selling Mega Drive game behind Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming October 2019 to Switch/Xbox One/PS4, First Screenshots & Trailer Revealed

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

UPDATE AT 17:54
A Western release has been confirmed as Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. The game will release on PS4, Xbox One and Switch on October 29th 2019 with a PC release scheduled for “Winter” 2019. You can watch the announcement trailer above.

ORIGINAL STORY

It’s official – Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball launches in Japan on October 31st 2019 for PC, Switch and PS4, and now we have our first look at the in-game visuals thanks to 4 high quality screenshots direct from Famitsu (see above).

Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball appears to be a remake of 2006 Wii title Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, which controversially included boss battles and the ability to jump. It was also the last Super Monkey Ball title directed by series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi who has more recently found fame with the Yakuza franchise.

There is currently no word on a Western release, but this at least confirms the existence of an Asian version after it was leaked on a Taiwanese ratings board last week.

The Super Monkey Ball franchise hasn’t seen an entry since 2012’s Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz on Vita and it’s been even longer since it received a release for a home console (2010’s Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll for Wii if you’re keeping track).
