Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World is set to be a remake of Monster World IV for the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive and has gotten mixed reactions from fans since it was announced but I can say this new trailer looks a lot better than the previous ones.
The game is set to come out May 28th and cost $39.99 (at least the physical versions)!
Looks like the listing from Dot Emu on SteamDB was true, the new add-on DLC for Streets of Rage 4 is being titled Mr. X Nightmare. The DLC is set to have Estel Aguirre as playable, new game modes, new moves, new weapons, and even new tracks by Sonic Mania fame Tee Lopes.
But what if you just got Streets of Rage 4? Well, Dot Emu isn’t leaving the base game behind as this update for the DLC will also include free upgrade to the base game that will include Mania + difficulty, Training mode with tutorial, New color palettes, and more stuff to be announced in the future.
Back when the SEGA Dreamcast came out, there were a lot of games that never got actual releases. Over the years some of these games leaked and fans have been able to experience “what could have been”. Now, 22 years after its initial reveal, Castlevania: Resurrection for Dreamcast has finally had its prototype leaked to a French Dreamcast preservation website.
According to an old IGN article, the ‘first’ Dreamcast installment of Castlevania series was placed on indefinite hold after the company said they lacked resources to develop the title. The article even ends suggesting it would be the last time we’d hear about the title. Ha! Wrong! Here we are today.
It sadly looks like the original tweet has been taken down by the studio. Maybe they had a upcoming announcement? Since we haven’t even seen a frame of animation, I assume this is a leaked announcement. We do know its suppose to be a 13 episode series that covers all of the first game and a part of the second.
What are your thoughts on the whole Shenmue Anime project?
Update: According to Adult Swim/Cartoon Network’s Creative Director @Clarknova1, Shenmue: The Animation “will definitely NOT release in 2021.” Meaning that TMS tweet was probably deleted for the obvious mistake. /Update
Similar to how Sonic Mania had its ‘Plus’ DLC leaked by a SteamDB listing, now the Streets of Rage 4 SteamDB listing has let the cat out of the bag that one of our favorite games of last year will be getting some upcoming DLC.
Considering that the DLC that is upcoming has minor spoilers, hit the jump to see what it is:
Do you guys remember the game Shadow Man? This action-adventure game by Acclaim launched on almost all platforms back in the day including Windows PC, Nintendo 64, PlayStation and of course the SEGA Dreamcast.
The Limited Run version of the SEGA Astro City Mini will only be limited to 3,500 units, which will probably make this version sought after in the collectors market compared to the regular Japanese version. As far as I know, the SEGA Astro City Mini unit included inside the English packaging is exactly the same as the Japanese retail unit. The Limited Run Games version will retail for $129.99, so get your F5 key fixed and get ready to refresh your browser!
UPDATE: Limited Run Games have clarified that some of the games are in English, some are in English and Japanese and some are completely in Japanese as denoted on their site. We compared to the Japanese unit and it lines up with the games on that model. So the unit itself is exactly the same as the Japanese unit, there are no new ROMs. The packaging is what has been updated.
It looks like Nintendo of Europe have issues a press release earlier today that listed Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster for release on May 25, 2021; as reported by Persona Central.
The press release also detailed what time pre-orders would open on the eShop. Pre-orders will open tomorrow on March 19, 2021 at 2:00 PM PDT / 5:00 PM EDT. The pre-order period will end on May 24, 2021 at 11:59 PM local time. While we got all this information due to Nintendo leaking it, Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster will not only be on Nintendo Switch but also PlayStation 4.
Any of you guys picking up this remaster before playing the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V? Oh wait, is that suppose to come out sometime?
He began his career with Deith Leisure as a financial controller, Deith Leisure would then be taken over by SEGA. Roger and Bob Deith would grow the UK Amusement division branch to have a £100m turnover and 250 employees.
“It has been an enjoyable 20+ years working with Paul and building a new team which has become a second family. We have seen our own game development grow and no longer rely solely on Sega Japan for games. Rebranding the company to Sega Amusements International Ltd (SAI) a few years ago and focusing on becoming an international company selling machines all over the world to major operators and distributors. SAI has truly become a global company which not only manufactures and develops games but also distributes 3rd party product and operates games,”
Roger Pennington will be replaced by Siraj Elkhawad moving forward. Welcome aboard and we hope 31 years of more arcade action!
Yesterday the Japanese video game news site Denfaminico Gamer held an interview with SEGA-AM2 legendary arcade designer Yu Suzuki (Virtua Fighter), Tekken’s Katsuhiro Harada and Arc System Works’ Toshimichi Mori where they talked about the histories of their franchises that included Virtua Fighter, Tekken, Guilty Gear and Blazblue. There was also some talk about the possibility of creating Virtua Fighter 6!

Last year was the launch of the first Panzer Dragoon: Remake. While the game had issues when it first launched on Nintendo Switch, publisher Forever Entertainment actually went in and fixed the game through updates. Later we got PlayStation, Xbox and PC versions with higher resolutions.
Now the Panzer Dragoon: Remake twitter account has confirmed that Panzer Dragoon II Zwei: Remake is coming this year:
Forever Entertainment is also doing a remake of House of the Dead 1 & 2, but we still haven’t gotten updates on that. I guess one game at a time.
SEGA has also been teasing that Phantasy Star Online 2 recently launched the newest Chapter 6 update; which means its a perfect time to launch on a new platform. The real question for me is when is this game launching on Sony consoles like PlayStation 4/5? What about the Nintendo Switch version titled: Phantasy Star Online 2: Cloud?
Recently SEGA hit it big last year with Sonic the Hedgehog movie being a big hit and the voice actor Ben Schwartz being accepted positively by fans, so obviously he would get the question if he is the one being asked to take over voicing Sonic the Hedgehog moving forward. Ben being a good guy started by praising Roger’s performance:
“Let’s all, for a second, before we even say that, Roger Craig Smith is an absolute legend. Like, his VO work, Sonic being one of them, but his career is unbelievable for a VO artist. He is so talented.”
