Sega are a company who survived a long period of extreme financial turmoil in the late 90's and early 2000's. However, in a recent Road to 2020 business presentation, it seems the organisation may well be looking to resurrect some of their past IP's as they look to the future. More recently, Sega have seen much more success with titles such as Total War: Warhammer and Persona 5 both going on to sell in their millions. But the business document brings to light their scope to develop 'global hits' along with the 'revival of past IP's and active utilisation of ... Read More »
Whilst we should of all been filling our boots with nostalgic Sonic juices by now, we have been treated to some new footage after the delay to Sonic Mania's release. The Flying Battery Zone featured in the 1994 smash hit, and some may say last great Sonic title, Sonic & Knuckles. The video below demonstrates a re-imagining of the Zone with our spiky haired friend, Knuckles the Echidna. Whilst the graphics look absolutely spot on and faithful to the original 16-bit series, hands on tests report that the handling is just as identical. Whilst Sonic Mania features other zones from ...

Sega was at SXSW on Thursday revealing some new information on their upcoming projects, along with some tidbits of Sonic Mania on the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter page. So, bad news or good news first? Bad? Okay, you asked for it. Sonic Mania; a 2D Sonic platformer that I'm sure we were all looking forward to getting hand cramp from, has been delayed. By an entire season! The initial release date of spring 2017, has been pushed back to summer 2017. Maybe Sega themselves got too caught up in testing that they forgot to keep developing as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyXg9kAp4Vc The above video shows some gameplay from Sonic ...

Sonic Mania’s seriously sweet collector’s edition package was previous an exclusive for North American gamers – but now it seems that players in Europe will also be able to get their Sonic-like gloved paws on this collection. The game itself, a side-scrolling platformer , is being billed a return to Sonic’s Mega Drive roots, from the art style and gameplay to the inclusion of ‘remixed’ levels from previous Sonic titles. Developed by Headcannon and PagodaWest Games, Sonic Mania may be the shot in the arm that the series needs – something publisher Sega must be hoping for, after a string ... Read More »

We love our classic consoles. Games from a bygone era - classic, simple, hard as nails. So when we get the merest sniff that we might be able to play some of these classics through the wonders of emulation, we sit up and take notice. Undoubtedly, we're going to see emulators on our Xbox Ones sooner rather than later, thanks to Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and the convergence of the Windows 10 and Xbox stores. We recently brought you the news that Win64e10 - a Nintendo 64 emulator App that runs reasonably happily on Windows 10 - could potentially see the light ... Read More »
