  • News Team Sonic Racing Officially Announced, Drifts onto PS4 This Winter

    Gotta go fast

    SEGA has announced Team Sonic Racing following Walmart's leak earlier today. The above teaser trailer doesn't tell you very much about the new game, but we do know the title is due out Winter 2018. Developed by Sumo Digital, the studio behind Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, you'll be able to play solo, in co-op, or...

  • News Walmart Strikes Again, Team Sonic Racing Leaked Via Product Page

    Oops, I did it again

    Oh, Walmart. You're not having the best of luck when it comes to games, are you? Following on from the huge Walmart Canada leak that seemingly outed several unnanounced games - including RAGE 2, which

  • News Sounds Like the Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 PS4 Remasters Will Head West After All

    SEGA chief suggests so

    Last week, we learned that SEGA plans to release remasters of Yakuza adventures 3, 4, and 5 on PS4, but they were only confirmed for Japan. However, a new quote from SEGA's chief creative officer, Toshihiro Nagoshi, suggests that the remasters will head to Western territories. Speaking on a SEGA live stream yesterday,...

    Review SEGA Mega Drive Classics

    Genesis

    SEGA Mega Drive Classics is one of those games you've probably already made up your mind about. The Mega Drive (or the Genesis, depending on where you are) played host to some absolute gems in the 90s, and for many, the chance to relive some fond memories on PS4 will be an attractive proposal. There are over 50 games in this retro...

  • News Valkyria Chronicles 4 Introduces Its Main Characters in New English Trailer

    Squad up

    Squad E seem like a friendly bunch going by this latest English trailer for Valkyria Chronicles 4. The series has always presented us with likeable characters, and this upcoming instalment looks to be no different. The video's short and sweet, but it does a good job of introducing the game's central cast. The English dub seems decent, too...

  • News Here's What Yakuza 3 Looks Like Remastered on PS4

    That's rad

    Earlier in the week, we learned that the three main last-gen Yakuza games -- 3, 4, and 5 -- will be getting the remaster treatment on PS4, at least in Japan. While we wait to find out if a Western release is on the cards, SEGA has released a trailer for Yakuza 3 Remastered (or whatever it's called), as well as a bunch of screenshots...

  • News Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 Remasters Heading to PS4

    In Japan

    The excellent Yakuza 0 kicked off a heightened interest in SEGA's series in the West. Since its release, we've had Yakuza: Kiwami and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, and Yakuza: Kiwami 2 is on its way later this year. That's a lot to be getting on with, but there's still a huge gap between 2 and 6 on PS4. Currently, if you want to play every...

  • News These Sonic the Hedgehog Sneakers Sure Do Exist

    Gotta go fast

    This is one press release we weren't expecting to receive today. SEGA has teamed up with PUMA to produce two Sonic the Hedgehog themed pairs of sneakers in the RS-0 range -- one based on the Blue Blur himself, and the other drawing inspiration from his arch nemesis. The blue pair features rings and Green Hill Zone details that wrap...

  • News Shenmue III in Delay to 2019 Shocker

    Changed my mind

    Shenmue III was never coming out this year, but now publisher Deep Silver has confirmed. In an outstandingly brief statement, the firm said that the “extra time will be used to polish the quality of the game even further”. Considering the scant snippets of gameplay we’ve seen thus far have been barely polished at all, it’s...

    Review Dragon's Crown Pro

    Allow this heart to beat again

    One of the best side-scrolling beat-'em-ups of the last decade is back, but not with a bang. Dragon's Crown Pro offers a welcome return to the beautifully drawn fantasy world of Hydeland, but those who have already sunk hours upon hours into Vanillaware's brilliantly old school romp -- either on PlayStation 3 or PS...

  • News Persona 5 Has Shipped a Very Healthy 2.2 Million Copies

    Steal your heart

    Persona 5 is the best selling game in Atlus' long running series -- we've known that for quite some time -- but where has it ended up in terms of actual figures? According to SEGA's latest financial report, Persona 5 now sits at 2.2 million copies worldwide, across both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. That's a good amount for a...

  • News SEGA May Consider Bringing Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 to PS4 if There's Demand

    Will of the dragon

    In a recent PlayStation Access interview, Yakuza series producer Daisuke Sato gave fans a glimmer of hope regarding more Yakuza titles on PlayStation 4. Right now, Yakuza 0, Yakuza: Kiwami, and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life are all playable on Sony's current-gen console, with Yakuza: Kiwami 2 launching later this year in the...

  • News Yakuza Producer Sums the Series Up with One Perfect Sentence

    Spot on

    Just recently, PlayStation Access got the chance to interview Daisuke Sato, the producer behind SEGA's Yakuza series. It's a pretty interesting video (which we've embedded above), but there's one particular answer Sato gives that's absolutely spot on. When asked to sum up Yakuza in just a single sentence, Sato replies "it's difficult...

  • News Sonic Mania Plus Dashes to PS4 in July

    Mighty

    Sonic Mania, the wonderful 2D platformer from last year, is getting an expansion this summer, and SEGA has just narrowed down the launch to 17th July 2018. Sonic Mania Plus includes the standard game, two new playable characters named Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel (who old-school Sonic fans may recognise), Encore stages...

  • News Action JRPG Shining Resonance Refrain Seals a PS4 Release Date

    Shine on

    Announced for a Western release back in February, SEGA has confirmed that Shining Resonance Refrain will hit PlayStation 4 both physically and digitally on the 10th July. The Japanese action role-playing game promises frantic battles, a sweeping story, and a fun cast of characters. Speaking of which, the title's new trailer (embedded...

  • News Yakuza Studio Working on a Brand New IP, Says SEGA Boss

    Nani?

    We're already aware that SEGA's Yakuza Studio is currently developing another Yakuza title, as well as a Fist of the North Star brawler that might come West, but that's not all it has up its sleeve.  According to Haruki Satomi, CEO of SEGA Sammy Holdings, SEGA is planning to challenge new IP on all manner

  • News Yakuza 6 Survey Hints at Potential Fist of the North Star PS4 Localisation

    Not dead yet

    Following yesterday's Western launch of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, SEGA has released a survey for the purposes of gathering fan feedback. It's pretty standard stuff, but there is one question in particular that sticks out. Near the end of the survey, users are presented with the following query: "While no localization has been...

  • News Big Sonic Mania Patch Springs Up Early on PS4

    Now removed by SEGA

    A sizeable update for Sonic Mania was released on PlayStation 4 in the UK last night, much to the surprise of fans. It seems that SEGA accidentally launched the patch early, as access to it has now been removed. Of course, that didn't stop a handful of people from updating the much loved classic style Sonic title, and there are a...

  • News Shenmue I & II Will Not Add Time Skip to the First Game

    Changed my mind

    Back when Shenmue was first announced, SEGA leaned heavily into a buzzword: FREE. An acronym, the term stood for “fully reactive eyes entertainment”, and it was essentially used to describe the type of gameplay that we more commonly consider open world today; it meant that the title enabled you the freedom to go anywhere and do...

    Review Yakuza 6: The Song of Life

    Way of the Dragon

    Yakuza 6: The Song of Life looks and feels like the next-gen Yakuza that we've been waiting for. Taking the developer's Dragon Engine out for its first drive, this is the sixth (or seventh, if you count the fantastic Yakuza 0) mainline entry in SEGA's crime drama action role-playing game series, and it's bloody brilliant. The much...

    The Shenmue series includes a variety of ways to make in-game money, whether it’s operating a forklift, gambling, or moving crates (yes, seriously).

That’s a good thing, as Ryo Hazuki’s...

  • News SEGA Falls in Love with Sakura Wars Again

    It's been a decade, my love

    Deep cut Sakura Wars is to make a comeback, as SEGA is working on a new entry in the series. For those who don’t know, this string of tactical role-playing titles with dating sim elements started life on the SEGA Saturn, and was last seen in 2005 on the PlayStation 2. There’s no word on which systems this new version...

  • News Shenmue I & II Searching for Sailors on PS4 in 2018

    The day the snow turned to rain

    Wow, we never thought we’d see the day. SEGA has followed up on its promise of a “huge surprise” by announcing that Shenmue I & II will be coming to the PlayStation 4 later this year. Considering we’d written off the possibility of this ever happening, that’s a pretty gigantic surprise indeed. This...

  • News SEGA Teases a 'Huge' Announcement for Tomorrow

    Okay, we'll bite

    SEGA Europe's official Twitter account has teased that a "huge announcement" is happening at the company's SEGA FES event in Tokyo tomorrow (that's the early hours of the morning for us here in Europe). Included is a picture of the show's logo, which features Sonic the Hedgehog, but there's no way of knowing whether the announcement...

  • News Yakuza 6 Demo Coming Back to PS4 Following Full Release Fumble

    Available early this week

    The demo for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life was only made available for a short time, as SEGA inadvertently released the full game on the North American PlayStation Store and, understandably, quickly removed it. Having now been unavailable for a few weeks, SEGA announced yesterday that the demo will be making a return soon...

  • News Yakuza: Kiwami 2 Heats Up Western Shores from 28th August

    That's rad

    Gone are the days when you had to rely on Sony to localise Yakuza games, as SEGA has announced that Yakuza: Kiwami 2 will brawl to Western shores from 28th August. Announced on an official stream earlier this evening, the title is a full remake of PlayStation 2 instalment Yakuza 2, built using the brand new Yakuza 6: The Song of Life...

  • News SEGA Teases New Sonic Racing Release

    Gotta go fast

    As has been rumoured for a while, there’s a new Sonic Racing game in development. Speculation suggests that Sumo Digital – the developer of the excellent Sonic & Racing All-Stars Transformed – is at the helm, although this is unlikely to lean on the SEGA nostalgia that previous instalments did. A new trailer shows off a bunch...

  • News Valkyria Chronicles 4 Will March West This Fall

    Wartime

    Ahead of the game's Japanese launch next week, SEGA has attached a Fall 2018 release window to Valkyria Chronicles 4 here in the West. Previously, a vague '2018' was all that we had to go on. What's more, the title's official English site is now open. It's got details on the story and characters and all that stuff. We imagine that we'll be...

  • News Watch 25 Minutes of Yakuza 6 Open World Gameplay on PS4

    Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is almost upon us. With only mere weeks left until we can all grapple with Kaz's latest adventure, a new video from PlayStation Underground has appeared to fill the time.
