Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal – PAX Prime 2014 Official Trailer

You can check out a new trailer from PAX Prime 2014 showing gameplay and features in Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal. 

I will admit that I was pleasantly surprised; at least the new handheld Sonic title looks a bit more like the classic games, and might not focus so much on the new, weird-looking character designs.  Continue reading

Nintendo eShop Downloads (11/28/13) – Mario Sale, Classic SEGA Games

Space Harrier 3D - Title ScreenThe new downloads available this week on the Nintendo eShop should be exciting to fans of classic SEGA games – several of the newest titles include Master System/Genesis hits.

For $5.99, you can download the 3D-enhanced versions of Hang On! and Space Harrier. Along with the stereoscopic effects, Hang On! features tilt-based controls, and Space Harrier adds touch-based controls with an auto-fire option for newcomers.

Additionally, this week’s Virtual Console download – Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom can be purchased for $4.99.

eShop Character Sale - Mario

There are some interesting sales on the eShop as well; Shin Megami Tensei IV (Nov. 28-Dec. 2) is just $30 – a steal, considering it is one of my personal-favorite 3DS games of 2013. Several Mario-related games are also marked down (Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, and Mario & Donkey Kong: Minis On The Move) until December 5.

Sonic: Lost World Finds October Release Date

Just a quick release date blurb; yesterday SEGA confirmed the launch date for Sonic: Lost World on both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. You can look forward to picking it up on October 13.

(For those keeping track, that’s the day after Pokemon X & Y come out. Sega could have done some nicer things with the timing on this one.)

Exclusive to Nintendo platforms, Sonic: Lost World will feature unique level design on both the 3DS and Wii U versions – even unique among themselves, with the 3DS version being tailored more specifically for the handheld. The game actually look like it plays like Sonic’s version of Super Mario Galaxy, and that’s a very great thing.

A full list of Wii U & 3DS features as well as commentary from Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka after the break.  Continue reading

Sonic: Lost World – First 3DS Screenshots

I’m not normally in the business of posting a bunch of screenshots, but I decided to change things up a little bit. Sega recently revealed Sonic: Lost World for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, including a launch trailer based on the Wii U version. Until now, we haven’t had a look at the handheld port. Sega released some screenshots yesterday, and you can have a look at them after the break.  Continue reading
