"Something about Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 is just not right," read our review of SEGA's nostalgic reboot last year
While we praised SEGA's intentions to return to Sonic's roots with the episodic Sonic The Hedgehog 4 series, we felt a little letdown by the first episode. It sure looked and sounded like a classic Sonic title, but it didn't feel...
A mysterious new Japanese splash page has appeared online this morning, teasing the next game from Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi
The page itself is light on content, but includes the words "Project A" in the URL. It also sports a link to the official Yakuza website at the bottom — leading us to believe that the splash has something to do with the upcoming Yakuza 5. Makes sense,..
SEGA's announced a fresh dose of DLC for the Avalanche developed isometric blast-em-up, Renegade Ops
The trigger-happy downloadable shooter is set to get two packs in time for Christmas, with the Coldstrike Campaign extending the game's story with a trio of new maps and the Reinforcement Pack adding two operatives to the team: Crystal and Blazemo...
The PlayStation Vita may be out, but the PlayStation Portable's still hot property in Japan
Next year will see Sony's first handheld host a slew of hot titles, with SEGA's Yakuza: Black Panther 2 right at the top of the list. A report in Dengeki PlayStation magazine has confirmed the spin-off brawler for a March 22nd release in Japan. The game will score both digital and retail releases, with the..
SEGA's announced that it has delayed Platinum Games' arena brawler game, Anarchy Reigns, until July 2012
The game was originally intended to release in January, but the move's probably for the best — despite having played the game, we're still not entirely sure what it is. Speaking of the delay, SEGA's marketing vice president Gary Knight was particularly cryptic: "I can't reveal much..
There are dozens of ways to kill a zombie, but we reckon Yakuza: Dead Souls has a majority of them
Having got our hands-on an import version of the tongue-in-cheek spin-off earlier in the year, we can confirm that Dead Souls is packed with plenty of ridiculous zombie debilitating methods. You can hit them with conveniently ditched bicycles, smash them with fire-extinguishers or even punch them in..
Do the splitz
It’s a bit of a shame that Super Monkey Ball has been relegated to launch window fodder. SEGA’s zany primate-populated pseudo-puzzle platformer felt like a breath of fresh air when it debuted on the Nintendo GameCube ten years ago, transforming a basic gameplay concept into something cute and, most importantly, memorable. But an...
Video games are so bizarre sometimes
We fondly remember playing Sonic CD on the ill-fated Mega CD add-on. We never dreamed at the time that all of the game's ideas existed inside a couple of low-key sketch-books. But that's exactly what Sonic Team's art director, Kazuyuki Hoshino, has shown off in a developer diary preempting the digital re-release of Sonic CD on the PlayStation Network today..
SEGA's pulled a Saturn and announced that its re-release of classic Mega CD sidescroller, Sonic CD, is coming to the PlayStation Network in Europe today (December 14th)
Those in North America will have a short wait until the game releases on December 20th overseas. Sonics 20th Anniversary has been a banner year for him as well as for everyone...
It's a bit of a shame that Super Monkey Ball has been relegated to launch window fodder
SEGA's zany primate-populated pseudo-puzzle platformer felt like a breath of fresh air when it debuted on the Nintendo GameCube ten years ago, transforming a basic gameplay concept into something cute and, most importantly, memorable. But an overzealous SEGA was quick to oversaturate the wafer-thin concept,..
When SEGA announced it was to release Sonic The Hedgehog 4 as an episodic product, we expected the new stages to come thick and fast
But despite the original's great commercial success, Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 has felt like it's been on the back-burner for a while. That's changed this afternoon, as the eagle-eyed editors over at Siliconera have uncovered a rating for the unannounced game on..
SEGA's announced an action/simulation hybrid for PlayStation Vita, entitled Samurai & Dragons
Unveiled in Famitsu magazine, the game will play similarly to SNES favourite Actraiser, which had players developing civilisations while clearing demon-infested areas in classic two-dimensional side-scrolling gameplay. Samurai & Dragons will be divided into two parts: action and strategy. The..
Regular readers will not need reminding of our attachment to tennis games. Nor will they be surprised to learn that Virtua Tennis 4 on Vita is one of our most anticipated launch titles. Those of you that played Virtua Tennis 4 on PS3 earlier in the year will be immediately familiar with its PlayStation Vita counterpart. The slick,...
Regular readers will not need reminding of our unreasonable attachment to tennis games
Nor will they be surprised to learn that Virtua Tennis 4 is one of our most anticipated launch titles for the PlayStation Vita. Those of you that played the arcade tennis sim on the PS3 earlier in the year will be immediately familiar with its PlayStation Vita counterpart. The slick, minimalistic menus are back,..
Like Yakuza 4, SEGA's upcoming zombie spin-off Yakuza: Dead Souls -- known as Yakuza: Of The End in Japan -- will put you in control of four different characters
The roster includes series favourites Kazuma Kiryu and Shun Akiyama, in addition to eye-patch equipped eccentric Goro Majima and Ryuji Goda. "Goro Majima is nuts about zombie movies," revealed SEGA community strategist Kellie..
Famitsu's revealed the first tid-bits about what is undoubtedly one of our most anticipated games of the moment, Yakuza 5
First-up, like the rest of the series, it will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3. The big change this time around will be the inclusion of multiple cities. In fact, the game will feature locations in Sapporo, Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka. Fans of the series will recall SEGA..
SEGA is hard at work resurrected one of its most "beloved IP"
But don't expect that IP to include the familiar faces of Ryu Hazuki and Nozomi Harasaki, because it's SEGA of America that's handling the development. According to a job listing, SEGA is looking for an executive producer to work on a "a high quality product based on a reimagining of one of Sega's most beloved IPs". Your guess..
Kazuma Kiryu's a man that's seen it all
He's spent years in prison, raised nine orphaned children, and dealt with a zombie apocalypse. The Yakuza protagonist knows how to get things done. And as we excitedly reported earlier in the week, he's now preparing to face-off against hordes of the futuristic robots in Binary Domain's multiplayer component. When fighting for the government, Kiryu will don..
We were already hot on SEGA's upcoming Binary Domain after we got some hands-on time earlier in the year, but SEGA's just gone and thrown us over the deep end
The Japanese publisher's announced that Yakuza protagonist Kazuma Kiryu will make a cameo appearance in the game's multiplayer mode. He'll sport his trademark white suit when playing on the side of the government, and go shirtless for the..
"Best Sonic game in years," is a phrase we've been dishing out rather liberally in recent months
But it couldn't be closer to the money. SEGA's really hitting the jack-pot with Sonic Generations, providing a campaign that not only appears to nail the two-dimensional aspect of Sonic The Hedgehog's gameplay, but also the three-dimensional portion too. The game's out this week in Europe and North..
The release of Sonic Generations has ushered many disbelieving gamers into an admission: Sonic games can be good
The upcoming title's combination of throw-back Sonic The Hedgehog gameplay and modern three-dimensional action has proven a hit with gamers ever since SEGA announced the move. But while Sonic Generations is set to become one of the best selling titles in the blue blur's history, SEGA has..
Those of you that have been keeping a close eye on the PlayStation Store recently will have noticed a slew of games under the 'Arkedo' label
Originally released for XBOX 360 and then ported to the PlayStation 3 by Sanuk Games, these super simple, retro flavoured indie titles gave Arkedo their excellent reputation. They've spent the past nine months...
Sonic The Hedgehog, as a video game series, has a long and storied history
Spanning more than 20 years, and featuring in massive number of games, the character has been a favourite of video game fans for years. But his latest outing in Sonic Generations is surprisingly the most pre-ordered title in the franchise's history. There's probably two reasons for that. The video game industry today is much..
A portion of Yakuza 5 will be set in the game's famous red-light district, Kamurocho
But like previous games in the series — which have taken protagonist Kazuma Kiriya to the likes of Okinawa — Yakuza 5 will boast a secondary district, that SEGA's allowing fans to choose. The options so far include Sapporo, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka. You can register you choice by visiting the franchise's..
We're so excited
As we've probably written approximately eighteen times now, House Of The Dead: Overkill was one of our favourite Nintendo Wii titles. So we're ridiculously stoked to see the silly on-rails shooter make the jump to PS3 with full PlayStation Move support. The game's vulgar, potty-mouthed and downright ugly, but that's absolutely part of the charm. Catch the trailer after the jump for..
What we've played of Sonic Generations has really impressed us
We thought we were going to be taken by the game's reimagined 2D stages, but it's actually the modern Sonic stuff that's got us replaying levels over and over in order to beat our best time. We hope that the game features good leaderboard support so the competitive nature of the title can really shine. If you were worried that Sonic..
Hot on the heels of Binary Domain's multiplayer announcement, SEGA's detailed the game's first couple of pre-order bonus packs
The first, entitled the 'Dan Marshall Pack', unlocks a brand new weapon and skills for the game's protagonist Sergeant Dan Marshall. "Dan is a member of the international Rust Crew charged with infiltrating robot defended Japan, and identifying the source of an illegal..
SEGA's mascot, Sonic The Hedgehog, has been awarded the first annual Outstanding Contribution award by the Golden Joysticks
We are so excited that Sonic has been awarded the first-ever Outstanding Contribution Award at the Golden Joysticks, Sonic brand director David Corless said. In todays ever changing market its rare for a character to last for 5 years let alone 20. And thats..
Will you hit a winner?
SEGA's gratuitously gory House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut is just a few days away from launch, with SEGA cranking up the excitement by showing off another new trailer, this time of the game's carnival stage. Not to be confused with Sony's upcoming Carnival Island, of course — they're very different beasts — the...
Some people are absolutely terrified of clowns, but we don't really understand their trepidation
So they have hideous hair, abnormal grins and way too much make-up, but what's so frightening about... Oh right. Yeah, perhaps we do get it. If clown clowns frighten you when they're being worn by normal human-beings, then you probably shouldn't think about the possibility of a zombie outbreak taking..
Fact: Sonic CD is one of the best Sonic games
Fact: very few people played it because it originally launched as part of the ill-fated Mega-CD disc-based extension. But SEGA's hoping to rectify all that with the PlayStation Network re-release of Sonic CD due out later in the year. There's a new trailer after the jump.
SEGA's announced a new game in the Shining series in this week's Famitsu magazine
The game — Shining Blade — will launch on PlayStation Portable next Spring in Japan. Further details are scarce to the point of obscurity.
We were pretty hot on what we saw of Binary Domain earlier in the year
The futuristic squad-based shooter is certainly a change of pace for the team ordinarily behind the fantastic Yakuza series, but it's got some neat ideas that set it apart from its immediate competitors. While SEGA's been keen to promote the single-player experience of Binary Domain, it's been pretty much silent about..
If you've already forgotten how fun the original Sonic Generations demo was, then SEGA's preparing to jog your memory
A second demo for the athletic hedgehog's latest adventure is set to hit the PlayStation Store this week. The demo will centre on Sonic's dash through Green Hill once again, but this time featuring hands-on time with both Classic and Modern Sonic. The game itself is due out early..
Between the eyes, that is
In just two weeks we'll be playing the first-ever PlayStation House of the Dead game — how about that? If that thought isn't enough to make you come over all unnecessary, perhaps the crossbow-themed trailer below might just tip you over the edge. Of course the crossbow isn't the first weapon that springs to mind when you...
Sonic Generations is mere weeks away
(We know, we're excited too.) And in order to celebrate the game's release, SEGA's decided to release a new trailer spoiling teasing each of the game's boss encounters. There's Eggman, Metal Sonic and... Nah, we won't spoil it. Watch if you dare.
Normally we'd stop by here for a witty comment or two
But there are just no words. Remember when we rated House Of The Dead: Overkill as one of our most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of the year? This trailer is why.</em>
You want the good news or the bad news? We'll start with the good: Daytona USA is indeed coming to the PlayStation Network on October 25th in North America
The bad news is that Europeans will be bafflingly made to wait until late November. No justification was offered. The classic racer has apparently been "tuned up and overhauled" for its...
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..
Sonic Generations spans three different eras
The Mega Drive era, the Dreamcast era and the Modern era. Seeing as we've already seen the previous two eras in actions, SEGA's released a final trailer focusing on the stages pulled out of Modern "favourites" such as Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Colors. Catch the footage after the jump.
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..
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..
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...
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]
The Dreamcast wasn't quite as kind on Sonic as the Mega Drive, but the blue-spiked hedgehog still had some memorable moments on SEGA's ill-fated system
Sonic Generations pays homage to the system's City Escape, Seaside Hill, and Speed Highway stages. You'll find a trailer of them after the jump. Warning: Shadow The Hedgehog's in it.
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.
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..
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..
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..
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...
Shut it down
Reports are flooding in of extreme violence and possible zombie outbreaks at Bayou County Hospital. According to several escaped patients, staff at the hospital have become bloodthirsty and violent, attempting to feast on the brains of any humans still inside. One survivor handed us a video tape, which has been lightly edited and...
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...
SEGA's somehow managed to maintain the quality of its trailers despite House Of The Dead: Overkill spanning two platforms
Check out the latest trailer for the PS3's Extended Cut version after the jump. We actually got our hands on the game earlier in the week. You can read our to-the-point impressions through here.
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..
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...
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..
Yakuza: Black Panther 2 for PSP is getting its playable debut at the Tokyo Game Show this week
And to celebrate SEGA's released a full four minute trailer for the part-adventure-part-brawler action title. Catch the new footage after the jump.
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..
Yakuza: Of The End is actually a really fun game
Criticised for its archaic controls by a cautious Western audience, we actually rather enjoy the mindless nature of the Japanese franchise's zombie spin-off. But Yakuza 3's director, Daisuke Sato, has said that the game's controls would be tweaked if the game were to get a European or North American release. For the western version of Yakuza: Of..
SEGA's promising looking Sonic Generations will release on November 4th in the UK
The date was officially confirmed in the publisher's updated release schedule. SEGA confirmed a Europe-exclusive Collector's Edition for Sonic Generations last week. [Thanks VG247]
After this morning's screenshot blunder, SEGA has officially confirmed Super Monkey Ball for PlayStation Vita
The title will launch alongside Sony's new handheld platform early next year, and will take advantage of the device's suite of input options. SEGA's promising plenty of new worlds, mini-games and even four-player multiplayer. The fan favourite Monkey Target will return, alongside some..
We predicted some time ago that SEGA's celebration of its blue-spined mascot would make the jump to PlayStation Vita, and if current rumours are to be believed it sounds like we were correct
TSSZ cite an anonymous source that notes the existence of a Vita version of Sonic Generations. The website predicts that the game will launch alongside the PlayStation Vita's launch in Japan this year and the..
It's a shame that SEGA's excellent Super Monkey Ball series has dropped in importance in recent years, but we still hold a torch for the quirky platforming series and are excited to see a new title get teased for PlayStation Vita today
The game was accidentally revealed on the company's website, with a batch of new Super Monkey Ball screenshots labeled with the title "PS Vita". Those..
The contents of SEGA's upcoming PlayStation Move-powered House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut are "longer, deeper and harder"
But don't forget — "you're mother won't like it". Catch the new trailer for SEGA's updated PS3 rails-shooter after the jump.
There was a point in the Nintendo Wii's lifespan where the console was dominating the sales charts but disappointing hardcore gamers
Long-time Nintendo fans were tired of Wii Fit and Wii Play, they wanted something meatier to get their teeth into. But with developers ploughing the majority of their resources into the more traditional XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3, Wii owners were left fighting for..
Meat is murder
SEGA's massively gory House of the Dead: Overkill — Extended Cut isn't just a glorified Wii conversion: it's got brand new stages and modes you won't find anywhere else. We've already covered Naked Terror, the first exclusive stage, and now we have the first shots of Creeping Flesh. The new level takes you through some sort of...
SEGA's announced Valkyria Chronicles 3: Extra Edition, an updated version of the third PSP-exclusive entry in the strategy franchise
The package comes with the original game and a bunch of new missions and DLC packs pre-included. In short: if you haven't played the game, you might want this. The game's currently set for a Japanese release on November 23rd. No Western release is planned.
SEGA's bridged the gaps between the original Yakuza: Black Panther and its recently announced sequel with a brand new cinematic trailer
The footage adopts Black Panther's unique visual style, and while it is light on gameplay, should be enough to get you pumped for the upcoming sequel. Hit the jump to see the footage in full.
Our first glimpse of Kurohyou 2 Ryu ga Gotoku (or Yakuza: Black Panther 2) is a familiar affair, as it looks almost identical to the original Black Panther
That title sucked a lot of life out of our PSP so we're naturally excited about the sequel. But without the promise of a localisation, we'll try to keep our anticipating in check. Andriasang's got more shots through here.
Hideki Kamiya was "joking" when he hinted at a Bayonetta 2 announcement yesterday
The legendary designer told a fan on Twitter that the game would be announced in a Japanese magazine this week, but Platinum colleague Atsushi Inaba was quick to defuse the situation. "There is no such announcement," said Inaba, before warning that Kamiya's Tweets should be taken with a pinch of salt. We're..
As promised yesterday, Yakuza series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi has held a press conference in Tokyo, confirming the development of Yakuza 5 and a sequel to the PSP's spin-off series, Black Panther
Excuse us for a moment while we climb onto our house's roof, strip down to our underwear and perform a jig to the chant, "More Yakuza, oh yeah, oh yeah." Ahem. Toshihiro Nagoshi announced that..
Ready for more high-octane action and sexy witches dressed in hair? If the Twitter account of legendary game designer Hideki Kamiya is anything to go by, you could be in luck
Plugged by a fan as to when Bayonetta 2 would be announced, the Platinum Games employee responded, "This week in a game's magazine," according to a translation by Andriasang. With Tokyo Game Show around the corner,..
SEGA's lifted the lid on House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut's second exclusive stage
Entitled 'Creeping Flesh', the level is set inside the "cosy confines of an abattoir taken over by a meaty disease of sorts". Lovely. 'Creeping Flesh' once again sees the return of Varla and Candy, as they fight against a slew of monsters and creepy flesh that has taken hold of the abattoir..
Yakuza series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi has revealed that he's making a big announcement tomorrow at a press conference in Tokyo
The announcement will be streamed via Japan's Nico Nico video service. And that's really all we know. Nagoshi is currently working on Binary Domain for PlayStation 3. A new Yakuza title would send us crazy like a bag of nuts. Cross your fingers.
Stay tuned for some Valkyria Chronicles news, is the message on the game's official blog
Outside of promising information prior to next month's Tokyo Game Show, the blog post itself was alarmingly scarce. One should probably expect a new announcement in the series — is it too early to say "PlayStation Vita"? [Thanks Andriasang]
SEGA's formally announced that Sonic CD will be getting a re-release on the PlayStation Network this Winter
When the game showed up on an official XBOX 360 blog earlier in the week, we were worried that Microsoft had pulled some exclusivity shenanigans. Thankfully that's not the case. Sonic CD is widely considered one of the greatest games in the...
SEGA has announced its intention to revisit classic IPs
Which, considering the developer's lengthy and time-tested catalogue, may bring waves of excitement and hesitance. President of SEGA West, Mike Hayes, commented on the developer's frequent reassessment of older titles. Explaining to VG247 that SEGA "constantly review the IP weve got in the locker" and pondering "how could we..
The new content in the 'Extended Cut' version of House Of The Dead: Overkill has forced the game to be cut from Australian release
The Australian ratings board refused the release of the PS3 remake as the nation's new R18 rating has yet to go into effect. The good news is that the original Wii version of the game did get a release in Australia in 2009, meaning SEGA must have gone absolutely nuts..
SEGA's Yakuza franchise is one of our favourites
While the game's structure has barely changed since 2005, we're happy to continue lapping up titles in the series. Unfortunately, with the Yakuza team currently spreading its wings with Binary Domain, it looks like we'll have to wait a while for the next title in the Japanese mobster franchise. And when it comes, we should probably expect some..
SEGA's senior digital brand manager, Mai Kawaguchi, has taken to the PlayStation Blog to reveal the debut trailer for Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, the first downloadable entry in the popular fighting series announced this morning
In addition to chatting a little about the game, Mai also confirmed that the title will be playable at PAX next...
You know Aliens: Colonial Marines is going for a horror vibe because its latest trailer is packed with heavy edits
Flick to black. People walking. Flick to black. The lights are flickering. Flick to black. Good grief, there's an Alien behind you!. Turn around for goodness sake. Please. Flick to black. Phew. [Thanks VG247]
SEGA's announced that it's bringing a refined version of celebrated brawler, Virtua Fighter 5, to the PlayStation Network next Summer
Entitled Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, the standalone downloadable title will include a full overhaul of Virtua Fighter 5's mechanics, including "balance and animations, along with new game modes, new dynamic...
Regular readers will know that we adore the Yakuza series
But even we'd happily admit that one game a year is too much for any non-sporting franchise. And it seems the Japanese team agrees, as director Daisuke Sato has told TheGamersHub that Binary Domain is the result of of the Yakuza team getting "fed up" with the Japanese drama series. "Well Binary Domain was created by the same..
Sports Interactive has said that it currently has no plans to bring Football Manager to the PlayStation Vita, despite a PSP version of the game being in development
Studio boss Miles Jacobson told Eurogamer that a decision about Sony's new platform would made after the system had launched. "At the moment, there aren't any plans for [a Vita Football Manager game]," Jacobson said..
SEGA confirmed overnight that the next project from its Yakuza team, Binary Domain, will launch in the West from February 14th
The squad-based action game includes support for voice commands, though the publisher admitted that it is experiencing some challenges getting said feature to work lag-free. Interestingly, it sounds like SEGA's packing these voice commands with plenty of Easter Eggs. For..
SEGA's preparing to continue its rally with tennis games on portable PlayStations: PSP received Virtua Tennis World Tour and Virtua Tennis 3, and next year we'll see Virtua Tennis 4 come to PlayStation Vita. As you can see from the fresh set of new screenshots and trailer below, the game is shaping up very nicely indeed, with a strange...
You're nuts if you don't think Sonic Generations looks good
The anniversary title's latest trailer focuses on a bunch of new environments, including the Chemical Plant Zone, which looks amazing in 3D, and the City Escape Zone, which looks amazing in 2D. We reckon the combination of classic and modern Sonic stages should satisfy everyone, and the fact that SEGA's decided to play on the nostalgia of..
Virtua Tennis 4 on the PlayStation Vita might be primarily a port of the PlayStation 3 title that launched earlier in the year, but it's still packing enough additional features to make tennis fanatics like ourselves double-dip
The big headline comes in the form of touch controls, allowing you to swipe across the touch-screen to play shots as opposed to tapping buttons. Seeing as we nearly always..
SEGA's taken to the PlayStation Blog to showcase Renegade Ops' variety of weapon upgrades
Digital campaigns manager, Mike Kebby, explains that the more you play Avalanche's downloadable shooter, the more scope you'll be given to unlock new abilities. There are three skill trees to choose from, allowing you to customise the game in a way that best...
SEGA West's gaffer Mike Hayes has told VG247 that his company is preparing two titles for PlayStation Vita's launch
The publisher announced Virtua Tennis 4 at E3 earlier in the year, but still has another top-secret title up its sleeve. On Vita, we can came out pretty early on and said we were going to give support to the hardware, Hayes told VG247 in an exclusive interview. And we will have..
Remember Sonic The Hedgehog 4? SEGA's cannon storyline continuation was touted as an episodic series, but since the release of Episode 1 last year, the Japanese publisher's gone dark -- opting to promote upcoming PlayStation 3 title Sonic Generations instead
The series is clearly not dead however, as SEGA West gaffer Mike Hayes has told VG247 to expect Sonic 4: Episode 2 information "very..
We know SEGA's got two projects in-development for the PlayStation Vita: Virtua Tennis 4 and another top-secret title
What we didn't know is just how much the company loves Sony's new portable. Its interesting on Vita technically its brilliant, its beautiful, and its really great to play, SEGA's gaffer Mike Hayes told IndustryGamers about Virtua Tennis 4. Weve managed to use a..
Platinum Games has been quietly fleshing out the roster for its multiplayer brawler, Anarchy Reigns
Latest on the list of playable characters is Durga, a tough guy with a cannon built into his leg. All sounds pretty standard fare for a Platinum Games developed title. With the game due out as soon as January though, we'd love to stop learning about the characters and find out a little more about the..
A new Sonic Generations video has hit the web showing off the game's Chemical Plant Zone and City Escape acts in both 2D and 3D
Chemical Plant Zone is certain to reignite some memories. It looks fantastic in HD too. Catch the video above.
Binary Domain -- the next title from SEGA's Yakuza studio -- gets crazier with every piece of information we learn about the game
