Rumour: Sonic the Hedgehog Spin Dashes PlayStation 4 in 2015

Sonic the Hedgehog Spin Dashes PlayStation 4 in 2015

Bling ring

After a brief hiatus from PlayStation formats following an arguably ill-fated exclusivity window on Nintendo platforms, Sonic the Hedgehog looks set to sprint onto a PlayStation 4 near you in 2015. A sign supposedly on display at last week’s Nuremberg Toy Fair outlines a roadmap for SEGA’s speediest series, and suggests that an...

Spot the Difference in This Yakuza Ishin Comparison Video

Two generations entwined

Whichever your preferred platform, a Western release of Yakuza Ishin is looking unlikely at this point in time. Nevertheless, with the franchise a niche favourite on these shores, we’re going to continue posting about it in the hope that SEGA sees sense and sends a localisation our way. This brand new video focuses on...

Puyo Puyo Tetris May Just Be the Coolest Crossover Ever

No, really

Forget about Ubisoft’s promise of a next-gen Tetris for the PlayStation 4, as there’s only one puzzler that you’re going to want to splash out on this year. Puyo Puyo Tetris promises a chaotic fusion of gaming’s greatest block busting brands, leaving you combining colours and scoring lines in a vibrant experience more hyperactive...

Desperate Shenmue Fans Beg Sony to Save Series on PS4

Master Chen would admire your fortitude

It’s becoming abundantly clear that if anyone is going to awaken Shenmue from its decade long slumber, it’s going to be Sony. Not only has the platform holder publicly acknowledged the fervent demand for the franchise in recent interviews, but PlayStation 4 architect Mark Cerny is actual

This Is One PS4 Box That You Probably Won't Be Seeing on Western Store Shelves

More's the pity

With the PlayStation 4’s launch in Japan now fast approaching, publishers are beginning to reveal the cover art for their release day wares. One such box that slipped through our news net late last year is this one for Yakuza Ishin, which bucks the series’ Eastern trend by adopting a full colour image. Pretty neat, huh? Despite...

There's Plenty of Sexy Side Content to Skewer in Yakuza Ishin

A night on the town

The Yakuza franchise has always boasted a large number of quirky, often crazy side activities to keep you entertained when you're not busy beating thugs into bloody pulps, and thankfully, the series' latest samurai spin-off Yakuza Ishin is just as laden with opportunities to turn that gritty frown upside down. According to the...

Alien: Isolation Stalks PS4, PS3 Later This Year

Believe it or not

Are those the cogs of the press cycle being kicked back into gear, or are we being pursued by a great leathery Martian? We’re going to assume it’s the latter, as SEGA has decided to give the ol’ Ridley Scott thing another bash, confirming that Total War developer Creative Assembly is working on Alien: Isolation for the...

Chop Up Radishes in Yakuza Ishin's Intriguing PS Vita App

A cut above

As far as companion applications go, Yakuza Ishin’s extravagant PlayStation Vita extra may just be the most impressive yet. We outlined late last month that the add-on will allow you to take Ryoma Sakamoto’s historical experience out with you, but this brand new footage shows just how much you’ll be able to do on the handheld...

We'd Trade a Phoenix Mirror for This Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Content

Changed our mind

Forget about the unresolved drama regarding Shenmue’s slick looking glasses, series antagonist Lan Di has cooked up an even more sinister plot involving Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. While the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions released over a year ago now, SEGA has just published the iOS and Android ports – and they...

Japanese PS4 Launch Title Yakuza Ishin Draws Its Sword

Slice and dice

There’s more cheesy rock music in this brand new trailer for Japanese PlayStation 4 launch title Yakuza Ishin than you could shake a samurai sword at. The lengthy cinematic clip – which splices together copious cut-scenes from the full game – shows various series favourites in their alternate history roles. That isn’t seasoned...

Oh Boy, Sony Hears Your Pleas for Shenmue on PlayStation

Let's get sweaty

Sony is eager to bring SEGA’s seminal Dreamcast exclusive Shenmue to the PlayStation platforms.

Wait, So SEGA Now Owns Persona Developer Atlus?

Yes, it does

SEGA has tossed a big pile of cash at the feet of troubled holding group Index Corporation, and purchased Persona developer Atlus in the process. The company’s been sniffing around the flagging firm for some time, but won an auction to buy the bankrupt company in a deal estimated at around ¥14 billion ($140 million). According to...
