New Persona 4: Dancing All Night Trailer shows off the cast’s dancing moves

Here’s a new trailer for Persona 4: Dancing All Night, Atlus’ dancing rhythm game for the PS Vita. P4: Dancing All Night features characters from the popular Persona series- you guessed it, dancing all night. But this trailer boasts more than just a jig with a boy in a bear suit. Dancing All Night features a pretty meaty story mode, told through animated cut scenes and Persona style talking heads. Plus an impressive selection of songs and outfits to dress your favourite Persona 4 characters in.

Persona 4: Dancing All Night will release on June 25th, 2015 for the PS Vita in Japan. Western dates still to be announced sometime within the year.

NIS America bringing Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker, Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold and Etrian Mystery Dungeon to Europe

As you might already know, Atlus usually isn’t that great with releasing their games in Europe and usually needs the help of other publishers to release them there, with the publisher in Europe often being NIS America. So it makes sense that they’re the ones who’ll bring over Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker and Etrian Mystery Dungeon this fall. They also announced that Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight will be coming to Europe in early 2016.

NIS America also released trailers for Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker and Etrian Mystery Dungeon, though they’re no different from the trailers that Atlus had already released for the US releases.

3D Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Streets of Rage 2 and Gunstar Heroes added to SEGA 3D Classics wave two!

3dclassics

The SEGA Blog has unveiled more SEGA 3D Classics titles! Just when we thought the series was over with the second wave featuring SEGA arcade classics, SEGA hits us over the head with a trio of Genesis/Mega Drive classics: 3D Sonic The Hedgehog 2, 3D Streets of Rage 2 and 3D Gunstar Heroes. Rather than being a third wave of titles, these new additions are a part of wave two. Though interestingly, their announcement appears to be exclusive to the West at the moment.

3D Streets of Rage 2 is set for July, 3D Gunstar Heroes in August, and 3D Sonic The Hedgehog 2 in September 2015. Also announced are the dates for the already announced 3D Classics arcade titles: 3D Fantasy Zone II (April 16, 2015) and 3D Thunder Blade (May 14, 2015). As with past releases, new modes and features are planned but are not yet revealed. Prices will be $5.99/€4.99/£4.49 and the games will be releasing exclusively to the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS.

Virtua Tennis 4’s PC version gets one last sale before it gets removed from Steam

ss_82677766dc1926af9eadada03a47e395eb35ea87

SEGA announced today that Virtua Tennis 4 will be removed from the Steam store on April 23rd. So before it will no longer be possible to buy the PC version, SEGA has put the game on sale for 80% off the normal price. As with all games on Steam that were removed from the store, you will still be able to download it from your library after its removal. However, the game still uses Games for Windows Live, of which online services no longer work. So you won’t be able to play the game online.

Virtua Tennis 4 isn’t the first SEGA game to be removed from Steam. Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast was removed from the store back in 2010, and in 2011 Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm was de-listed as well.

Classic SEGA Magazine Corner: Xbox Nation interviews Smilebit’s Panzer Dragoon Orta artists

ortamagazine

As evidenced last month, the unofficial Microsoft Xbox magazine Xbox Nation (XBN) really liked Smilebit. Their premiere issue featured Smilebit’s Jet Set Radio Future, which is surprising given Halo‘s dominance at the time, and their third issue featured a Panzer Dragoon Orta cover and an eight page preview and interview with former Team Andromeda staff. As the magazine continued, XBN kept up on various SEGA and Smilebit titles. In the magazine’s sixth issue they returned to Japan for another Smilebit interview, this time with Panzer Dragoon Orta artists Takashi Iwade and Kentaro Yoshida. Let’s crack open this issue to see what these legends had to say!

The crossover chaos continues in Project X Zone 2: Brave New World for Nintendo 3DS

Project-X-Zone-1

Project X Zone, the 2012 crossover for the Nintendo 3DS which threw together SEGA, Bandai Namco and Capcom characters into an epic adventure, is set to return! According to a report from website e-duessee, a sequel is in the works for the 3DS entitled Project X Zone 2: Brave New World. The article itself is a report of an April 7th Bandai Namco press event held in Milan at which the game was announced alongside another unannounced title, Saint Seiya: Soldiers’ Soul for the PS4, PS3, and PC. The original article has since been edited to remove the mentions of the games (whoops!) but thankfully NeoGAF caught it before the removal.

What are your thoughts on another Project X Zone title? Have any characters you’d like to see make an appearance? I’m hoping to see Mega Man, Pac-Man and Sonic, as well as an expanded SEGA cast including Ryo Hazuki and some 1980s characters.

The SEGA Five: Places to Go for an Awesome Day in Tokyo-to

segabits jet set radio future 1

Well, you may have overslept, but there’s still time to catch what looks like a gorgeous day.

The sun, positioned high in a cloudless blue sky, beams down upon the bustling metropolis, its light casting a slight shimmer on the horizon. On most days your schedule’s packed; from time spent racing through the city streets, fighting off the Rokkaku Police and rival gangs, and doing everything in your power to recruit newbies, those in the GG’s rarely have time to slow down and appreciate the scenery.

Today was different, though. Today was your day off, and you figured you’d make the most of it and visit some of your favorite locales in the great city of Tokyo-to for a very different type of adventure from your typical day-to-day craziness.
