Segakawaii, SEGA’s clothing line for young woman has been teasing a couple of designs. The two above are the ones in question. This is all the shots released, just the concept. The descirption says that they will show more on April 25th.
In my opinion the Mega Drive top is pretty cool, but the Dreamcast shirt is way too plain. Needs more work on that one.
Most of you are probably seeing this and talking about how we sold out to the social media trends. But lets be honest, wouldn’t you want to have random SEGA nostalgia pictures daily on your phone? I know most people use Instagram to show off what they are eating or what they are wearing, not us. We are sharing some interesting SEGA pictures. You love interesting SEGA pictures, don’t you?
Instagram is only an app right now, that means no web interface. So how do you add us? Easy, hit the search button and type in SEGAbits. Easy! Instagram is available on both Android and iOS devices.
[Got some pretty interesting SEGA pictures? Send them our way!]
SEGA have posted this teaser image on their Facebook account. Many different theories form fans have been shouted, stuff like Shenmue 3 and Dreamcast 2 always making their wonderful return.
So what does it say? According to everyone on Facebook the rough translation is:
“End of that story is no more than a start of the new story”
I asked some of the Japanese community members we have on PSN and haven’t gotten a response. The other two images was one for twitter and one on IGN.
The IGN image says:
”A then so perfect existence, already completely and utterly destroyed”
Edit: According to our Japanese forum member, STORM!, the twitter image says:
“We are going to see that… dead people souls”
Folks, sounds like its a teaser for the reveal of Yakuza: Dead Souls. We already saw this one coming. Thanks SEGA. Also, why did they use the Valkyria Chronicles font? [/edit]
The little metal manace returns! Sonic the Hedgehog’s Facebook page has just revealed the CG render for Metal Sonic as he will appear in Sonic Generations. What’s special about this iteration of Sonic’s doppelganger is that unlike recent video game appearances of Metal, this version is based on the classic Sonic CD design. Shorter limbs, bigger head, round eyes and pure evil. I love it! Now my fingers are crossed for a Sonic CD stage in which you battle Metal. Based on the design, I’d say we’re getting one.
Check out the full sized image at SEGA’s Flickr page.
SEGA released a new Sonic teaser via their Sonic Facebook page. What did we think about it? Well, we decided to all sit down and write about it.
Hit the jump and tell us what you thought about the trailer in the comments.
OK, so we posted that on the 7th there was going to be a big update. Well SEGA has said it’s going to be a trailer, but for what? We will have to wait till tomorrow to find out. Here is what they teased via twitter:
“SEGA: BRAND NEW TRAILER COMING TOMORROW ONLY ON SONIC’S FACEBOOK! Be sure to come back tomorrow to check it out! http://www.facebook.com/sonic”
OK SEGA, you win. Color me excited. What do you guys think this trailer will be? Sonic Generations or Sonic 4 Episode 2? How about if its for something totally unrelated to the game? Then I will be disappointed… Unless it’s for boxers that say “To be this good takes Ages.”
SEGA is now teasing people that Sonic’s Facebook is going to have something big, most likely on April 7th. Check out the tweets in their uncut glory below.
“There’s something big coming this week to the Sonic Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/sonic”
“Sonic’s 20th Anniversary is this year, but SEGA start celebrating on 7th April and you’ll only find out how on the Sonic Facebook page!”
So what could this be? We will find out in 48 hours, no need to have a panic attack. Could this be a Sonic social game to make old school fans even more mad? We can only dream.
The SEGA Facebook game ‘SEGA PLAY! Baseball’ has officially launched for English speaking users! Announced back in February, SEGA PLAY! Baseball allows Facebook users to create and maintain their own baseball team, training them to become major league champions. The game features a large amount of customizable content, from team name and colors to designing your own personal avatar and decorating your stadium. I currently am shooting for a dinosaur and sunflower theme.
Nikkei has reported that SEGA will be launching their ‘Play SEGA!’ brand across both Facebook and hi5 Networks.
SEGA promises to start the expansion by launching “Sega Play! Baseball” by the end of the month on Facebook. The same game will launch sometime in March on hi5. SEGA is set to be the first major Japanese developer to deliver content on hi5. When the game launches, it will be free to play with pay for items.
I for one support this, starting your own social game site is fine, but not having them in the #1 biggest social site around is just stupid.
It isn’t new for software companies to use an animal to promote their products. Even as I type this, I’m looking at a orange fox hugging a blue globe (firefox). So it’s no surprise that the Facebook creators had a similar idea:
“True story: in the very early days of Facebook, Sean Parker wanted to make Facebook’s mascot a hedgehog. We had early plans to build a local business program around each college on the site (a Yelp-like service similar to what later became Facebook Pages). As part of that, Sean wanted us to send each participating business a little blue stuffed hedgehog. Matt Cohler and I even sourced a couple companies to make them.Sean actually wanted us to get a real hedgehog for the office. Turns out they aren’t street legal in California, or something, but I guess he found a way to obtain one in Nevada. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your affinity for hedgehogs) Sean couldn’t convince any of us to drive there to get one.”
The local business program was shelved mid 2005 (we decided a revenue product wasn’t as important after the Accel financing), and Sean let his dream of the hedgehog go with it.
This would have probably ended up with SEGA suing them and them making a sequel to their hit film, The Social Network.
