Sega to celebrate 20 years of Sonic and Puyo Pop in 2011!

Ladies and Gentlemen… Na, who am I kidding, Gentlemen and Gentlemen! The time is almost upon us!

In a matter of hours it will be 2011, and with 2011 comes not one anniversary of great importance amongst Sega fans everywhere but two! Yes, both Sonic the Hedgehog and Puyo Pop turn 20 this year! To celebrate, on the stroke of midnight, (Japanese time)  Sega has already began the hype.

Sega have released a press statement suggesting that they have a number of projects lined up for both the Sonic the Hedgehog and Puyo Pop franchises in 2011. They weren’t specific on what these ‘projects’ entail but I suspect they will hold events as well as release celebratory games.

You can visit the Sonic anniversary site HERE.

If the next Sonic game is as good if not better then Sonic Colours and we get another great Puyo Pop game, Yakuza 4 and Yakuza of the End, Valkryia Chronicles 3, Bayonetta 2, Shogun 2, Creative Assembly’s new action game and of course Phantasy Star Online 2… Well shit, 2011 is going to be a sweet year for us Sega fans!

So happy new year from Segabits, have a good one and I’ll see you next year folks! I’m off to get wasted!

Segabits – Halloween Pumpkin 2010


It’s that time of the year again folks! The night that all kinds of hideous ghouls, creeps and basement dwellers come out to play… And that’s just the Sega fans.

With Halloween come pumpkins and what kind of self respecting Sega fan would we be if we didn’t do a Sega related pumpkin!? This year we decided to base our pumpkin on Puyo Pop. We got some Puyos on there and classic character Carbuncle.

(Note; we even got him a small ruby for his forehead! Now that’s commitment… Even if  it’s plastic.)

Hit the jump for more pictures plus a reminder of last years Pumpkin!
