News: Nope, Valkyria Chronicles 3 Isn't Getting Localised

Nope, Valkyria Chronicles 3 Isn't Getting Localised

What's that? You were holding out hope for a Western release of Valkyria Chronicles 3? Really? Yeah, don't

SEGA has told Gamespot that a localisation of its third PSP strategy RPG is totally off the cards. The reason? Well the PSP isn't popular enough in Western markets apparently. That and Valkyria Chronicles 2 — which did get localised — sold like trash. But with the Sony portable market..

News: Binary Domain Trailer Hones In On Consequence System

Binary Domain Trailer Hones In On Consequence System

We were suitably impressed with Binary Domain when we got to check it out earlier in the year

In fact, given our monumentally low expectations it actually kind of blew us away. A unique art-style, some great shooting and fantastic presentation all contributed to our positive impressions. But we also came away intrigued by Binary Domain's consequence system. During the game you'll need to..

News: Hooray: Yakuza Of The End Confirmed For Western Release, Now Dead Souls

Hooray: Yakuza Of The End Confirmed For Western Release, Now Dead Souls

Celebrate good times, come on

SEGA's just announced that it's bringing Yakuza: Of The End to Europe and North America under the new title Yakuza: Dead Souls. The game — which sees the franchise's famous Kamurocho district invaded by the undead — will release in March 2012 with its full plot in-tact and a new mini-game called Pachislot. "Players will face armies of the undead, incredibly..

News: SEGA Teases 'Mysterious' New Game With Bunny Rabbit Trailer

SEGA Teases 'Mysterious' New Game With Bunny Rabbit Trailer

A PlayStation 3 release of Daytona USA has been on the cards for some time now

The game has previously popped up on the website of various ratings boards, hinting at its impending arrival. Never ones to do things by the numbers, SEGA has released a new trailer teasing the release of a "mysterious" new game. We say "teasing" but what we really mean is "confirming". The..

Sonic Generations Release Brought Forward In Japan

Presumably running away from the coming PlayStation Vita release, SEGA's pushed the Japanese launch date of Sonic Generations forwards a week

It'll now launch domestically on December 1st, as opposed to the previously announced December 8th date. The European release will stay remain unchanged, dropping November 4th. [Thanks Andriasang / VG247]

House Of The Dead: Overkill Takes You On A Trip To The Pink Pussycat

Strip-clubs and grindhouse movies go together like cheese and pineapple, so its no surprise to see SEGA linger heavily on Baiyou City's 'Pink Pussycat' in its latest trailer for House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut

As one YouTube commenter crudely pointed out: in House Of The Dead, the cat eats you. We like that one.

News: PARTY: Trademark Hints At European Release Of Yakuza Of The End

PARTY: Trademark Hints At European Release Of Yakuza Of The End

Regular readers will know that we love nothing more than a Yakuza game

We'd happily play one every year. And if a trademark registered by SEGA is what we think it is, it looks like we'll get our wish granted next year too. Yesterday, SEGA filed a trademark for Yakuza: Dead Souls in Europe. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that this is probably a rename for Yakuza: Of The End — a zombie..

Grab Some Of Those Red & Blue 3D Glasses, And Take A Look At This

Showing 3D on 'ye olde' computer monitors is hard -- but give SEGA credit for trying

In order to promote the (anaglyphic and stereoscopic) 3D support in its upcoming rails-shooter, House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut, SEGA's released a couple of new screenshots of the game that work with those cheap red and blue glasses. Try it out. Given the game's grindhouse vibe, this is actually pretty..

First Impressions: Binary Domain on PlayStation 3

Binary Domain on PlayStation 3

Sometimes you go into a video game demonstration with remarkably low expectations

For us, Binary Domain was one of those games. Which is strange given that it's the latest project from the studio behind the Yakuza titles — one of our favourite PlayStation franchises of all time. While Binary Domain has shown flashes of brilliance in its underlying art direction, everything else has looked..

First Impressions: House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut

House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut

Goregasmic

It's no surprise to see House of the Dead: Overkill making the leap to PlayStation Move. Originally developed for Nintendo Wii, Headstrong Games' title seemed like an ideal candidate for a port from the second that PlayStation Move was announced, following similar arcade shooter efforts such as EA's Dead Space: Extraction. What is still...

SEGA Bass Fishing Takes the Move Bait on 4th October

PSN release at last

SEGA is gearing up for a double Move whammy in October: with House of the Dead: Overkill — Extended Cut at the month's end, PS3 owners after something a little more sedate are catered for on 4th October with the digital release of SEGA Bass Fishing. Those aware of the game will know its lengthy history: originally an arcade...

First Impressions: HOTD: Overkill - Extended Cut on PS3

HOTD: Overkill - Extended Cut on PS3

Consider this less of a preview and more of a confirmation; House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut is exactly what you'd expect it to be

We got to check out the game's Hospital stage and giggled our through the demo as the game's sheer stupidity resurfaced itself. The PlayStation Move controller works perfectly, and the experience is enhanced by Sony's Sharp Shooter peripheral which allows you..

Space Channel 5: Part 2, SEGA Bass Fishing Freshen Up The PlayStation Network On October 4th

Two of our favourite Dreamcast titles of all time -- Space Channel 5: Part 2 and SEGA Bass Fishing -- will finally launch on the PlayStation Network on October 4th, SEGA has confirmed

The games will cost £6.29 / $9.99 a pop. Space Channel 5: Part 2 concentrates on pink-haired hostess newscaster Ulala embroiled in a battle against the Rhythm Rogues. Meanwhile SEGA Bass Fishing transforms an..

We'd Buy Daytona USA All Over Again

Looks like SEGA's preparing to revisit another of its classic franchises

A listing for a new version of Daytona USA has popped up on the website of an Australian Classifications Board. Daytona USA previously popped up on SEGA Saturn and Dreamcast. If we had to bet, we'd guess this rating is part of SEGA's downloadable Dreamcast catalogue, which has so far included re-releases of Sonic Adventure and..

News: Sonic Generations Teases Mega Drive Era

Sonic Generations Teases Mega Drive Era

Sonic Generations features stages from three different eras of Sonic: Mega Drive (not Genesis), Dreamcast and Modern

In order to build hype ahead of the game's November release date, SEGA's released a new trailer showcasing Generations' Mega Drive stages — Green Hill, Chemical Plant, and Sky Sanctuary. The nostalgia is almost painful. Catch the footage after the jump. This game can't come soon..
