Looks like we’ll be getting a heavy dose of the original Sonic 1 this year.
Thanks to our sister site Sonic Retro, we have learned that Sega of Japan have announced Sonic 1 as the third Sega game (along with Space Harrier and Super Hang-On to get the 3-D treatment. It looks like this will not be the same as the version coming from Christian Whitehead for the iOS. While it will have full 3-D effects, it will still looks to be in 4:3 mode. Besides 3-D other new features include..
Switch between Japan/Western version with some minor differences.
New animations in backgrounds like rippling effects in water.
CRT mode to give it that “classic” look.
Full controller customization. Set it to press A to jump or B to jump, or X to Jump or Y to well you know where I’m going here.
Sound settings for PSG and FM.
While the game will be coming to Japan on the 15th, but given how long it’s taking Space Harrier and Super Hang-On to come over here, it may be awhile before we see it stateside.
Seems that Tails Adventure and Crystal Warriors could be heading to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console shop soon over in Australia. The Australian Rating Board has recently put a rating on both Game Gear titles, the rating states that SEGA Europe is the publisher.
It is awesome to see more Game Gear games are making it on the 3DS, since it was one of my favorite handhelds growing up.
Ikaruga is probably one of my favorite shoot ‘em ups during the Dreamcast era, created originally for the SEGA NAOMI board. This little bugger has seen its fair share of ports, including the Gamecube, Xbox 360 and now Android powered devices. How much are they charging for this masterpiece? $9.
So head over to the Play Store and pluck down some money and if you haven’t played it, do so please.
The boys and girls over at Game Radar got an exclusive Jet Set Radio HD trailer, sadly the trailer isn’t running in high defenintion. Game Radar is showing giving this exclusive video the 2008 era YouTube quality love.
For what it seems, looks like the Jet Set Radio we all know and love. Doesn’t answer the questions we really want to know like if they are going to use the second joystick on controllers to move the camera or if they are going to be taking off tracks from the soundtrack.
When Crush was released back in 2007, it didn’t get that much hype, even though it ended up being one of my favorite games on the PSP. Now it will get a second chance on the Nintendo 3DS. We posted about it coming awhile back, now ESRB has rated the title.
This is a puzzle platformer in which players collect marbles to activate exits and complete each level. As players run and jump through each colorful environment, they can toggle between 2D and 3D perspectives to navigate platforms. Players’ ‘cartoony’ character cries out and loses a life if he falls off tall platforms or is struck by roaming enemies (e.g., giant blocks, slugs). In some sequences, players can use large blocks or balls to squash giant cockroaches; defeated bugs emit large splashes of yellow liquid that stain the ground.
Now all we need is a press release, official release date and we can finally get hyped. The game got a E 10+ rating. That means you should get 4 copies for each one of your children.
Sony’s NGP has been revealed tonight, and among the developers talking about the device was none other then SEGA’s Toshiro Nagoshi, famed – and tanned – creator of Yakuza and Monkey Ball. Yes, the video above is Yakuza of the End running on PSP2. Yes, this device is friggin awesome.
This was shown at the “Playstation Conference” to demonstrate how easy it is to port existing PS3 games to PSp2 and still keep the same quality. Nagoshi says its just a tech demo for now, not an announcement of a port.
Crush is one of the most underrated SEGA published games this generation. It was released on the PSP and received no hype, which is too bad. It is a great game that EVERYONE should play.
It seems that SEGA will give the franchise another chance, posted at GoNintendo, SEGA will be porting the PSP title to 3DS. I think that Crush would be prefect for the 3DS, with its touch pad and 3D visuals. Filing it as a rumor till we get a SEGA go ahead that it’s official.
We have been told by SEGA that this is indeed true, no press release or details to share right now.
I guess not, according to Ripten, who spoke with SEGA employees in a recent Sonic Colors event, SEGA has no plans on porting this game to Android. What a drag, no SEGA love for Android users. Maybe Google can throw money at them. God knows that Android market needs some good games.
