New Streets of Rage game title revealed in SEGA SAMMY report, developer potentially revealed



Quote
A recent report from SEGA parent company Sega Sammy Holdings Inc. has revealed a new look at the upcoming Streets of Rage game, including the games potential title! Streets of Rage Revolution promises a return to the side-scrolling beat ’em up action series in a whole new (well, new as of the mid 90s) dimension: 3D! While the developer has not been announced, fans speculate Mighty Fight Federation developer Komi Games Inc. is behind the title based on shared visual styles and recent job postings. Streets of Rage Revolution will likely be published by SEGA so as to bring their legacy franchises back under ...

Key art revealed for upcoming 3D Golden Axe game showcasing main characters and enemies



Quote
While the characters look a little too “World of Warcraft” for my tastes, they do retain the look of the classic trio with new twists. It is likely this is either a reboot or a sequel set years later starring a new cast, as aside from the dwarf looking like Gilius Thunderhead, the male and female look a bit different from the Ax Battler and Tyris Flare fans remember.
Unlike Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi, Golden Axe has ...

New artwork for upcoming Shinobi game revealed in SEGA Sammy report



Quote
While we can only speculate that developer Lizardcube (Streets of Rage 4 and The Dragon’s Trap remake) is behind the upcoming 2D Shinobi game, new key art utilized in a SEGA Sammy Holdings Inc. report screams Lizardcube aesthetics. Little else is revealed, aside from the player taking up the Oborozuki sword to slay evil. It also appears that the game will stick with the ...

Quote
The wireless earphones are the model CP-TWS01A, and they cost 15,500 yen (or about $109) each. In addition, Onkyo will also sell Sega Genesis and Dreamcast wireless chargers for 4,400 yen (~$31) each.

The headphone case is designed after the consoles themselves, and the Sega Genesis earbuds feature the 16-bit and console logo. Meanwhile, the Dreamcast model earbuds are designed to look like the console’s controller. The earphones feature the startup and system sounds of each console.
You can take a better look at ...

Holiday Sega In The Media: Sega Genesis featured in “Merry Axe-mas” music video by Ice Nine Kills

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPVNl_g5N_I

Quote
Observant viewers will immediately be drawn to the packaging of the game Spencer received, which does look rather authentic. Notice the red band where “Genesis” would be shown instead saying Ice Nine Kills, the name of the band, while on top of the box is “INK” (Ice Nine Kills abbreviated) in the iconic Sega logo font, or possibly a close facsimile of it.
You’ll even see that they decided to put the game in an EA-style yellow tab cartridge instead of a standard shape and size Genesis cartridge. These cartridge shells were used for many years by Electronic Arts for their various games, such as the Road Rash series, B.O.B., Haunting Starring Poulterguy, and various EA Sports games. Perhaps this was done to make extra space for ...

Genesis/Mega-Drive inspired portable FM synthesizer “Liven Mega Synthesis” now up for pre-order



Quote
The Liven Mega Synthesis is designed completely around emulating the iconic sound of the YM 2612 chip, along with the accompanying 8-bit PCM and PSG sounds, in excellent quality with tons of options for composition and editing. While it can record and play music far beyond the limitations of Genesis hardware, it also includes a “Legacy Mode” that allows it to more strictly match the specific sound of a Genesis console on any given track. All this comes in a six track sequencer with ten special effects to apply to each, including reverb, distortion, low pass filter, high pass filter, and ...

Limited Run Games prepares new limited edition Genesis reprint of Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel;
Pre-orders open until February 4th, 2023




Quote
This cartridge is only available in NTSC form, meaning PAL Mega-Drive systems may not be able to run the game properly.
That being said, if you’re in Europe trying to order a copy, you may end up paying a lot more for shipping than North American gamers will, considering Limited Run Games is based in the USA.
Limited Run Games has promised to eventually open a European shipping center and a European-centric website back in March, 2023, but ...

Streets of Rage 2 - Italian Translation Patch



Quote
Italian translation for Streets of Rage 2.
You can choose between normal translation or with the removal of censorship.
The translation with restoration patch* expands the ROM and may be incompatible with some emulators or with the real machine and restores:

- Blaze’s original flying kick sprites;
- the cigar smoked by Mr. X;
- the count of defeated enemies on the status bar (press A in the pause screen);
- the names of Galsia, Galuda and Mosquite in Garcia, Garuda and Mosquito.
- Also changes the music of the pirate ship with the unused music track “Little Money Avenue” (the song removed is still used in the second stage, so the soundtrack is complete).

(*) draws partially from SCD’s Streets of Rage 2 Restoration hack.

Download the patch here : https://www.romhacking.net/translations/7177/
