Sega has never been one to shy away from delivering great entertainment at fan experiences, so if you want to start your week right we suggest you give this DJ set a spin. For nearly one hour, DJ Tomoya Ohtani spins some iconic music themes from decades of Sonic The Hedgehog video game history and is eventually...
Dungeons & dragons, classic Mario, Toki Tori 2 with a + and more
It's Monday, which means Nintendo Download news for Europe. This week brings a modest number of titles, though they do include a long awaited Wii U download from Capcom, classic Mario, a major Toki Tori 2 update and the download arrival of the blue blur's most recent adventure on 3DS...
Dungeons & dragons, twisted dreams, rare retro shooting and much more
It's Nintendo Download update day, North America, and there are some real goodies on offer this week. We have long awaited Wii U eShop games, a rare NES shoot 'em up on the 3DS Virtual Console and various other treats. Without further ado, here are the details. Wii U eShop:...
Will you be taking the plunge?
We recently reported that Sonic Generations is getting a digital release in North America this week, and we can now confirm the price of the game: $29.99. When we ran the original report we commented that the price would have to be reasonable, as pre-owned copies of the physical release can be picked up relatively...
No word on price yet
Everyone may be getting excited about the impending release of Sonic Lost World on Wii U and 3DS, but that doesn't mean that Sega has forgotten about its past classics — the company is releasing Sonic Generations on the 3DS eShop next Thursday. There's no word on a price as yet, but it's good to see that one of Sonic's better...
The Blue Blur is still running strong
SEGA has released a celebratory tweet to honour the 22nd anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog’s release on the Mega Drive (the Genesis in North America), and what a long, strange journey the Blue Blur has had since. Sonic’s career has had its ups, its downs and its loop de loops, but perhaps the strangest...
Have a Mario holiday
The festive season is almost upon us, which means that it’s time to lighten our wallets and top up the gift stockings. For those who fancy some Nintendo gaming in the coming holiday, we thought we’d pass on some hints and tips on the games and consoles to buy. We’ll cover some of the console bundles available, as well as...
Try to keep up
Sonic Generations is out in Europe today, and what better way to celebrate than a comic strip explaining the game's story? Using still shots from the game's rendered intro — only available in the HD version, sadly — the strip sets up exactly why two eras of Sonic find themselves racing through the same stages. It also contains some very finely detailed digital cookies, if that..
Out this week
SEGA's mascot just hit 3DS in North America today, and to celebrate here's a brand new launch trailer. The video shows off Sonic Generations' stages, bosses, multiplayer and StreetPass mode, so if you've been waiting to see which classic and modern Sonic moments are revisited in the 'hog's first 3DS outing then wait no longer. Sonic...
Take on the best
SEGA's just released a stack of new Sonic Generations screenshots ahead of its mascot's first 3DS first appearance this week, showing off the odd stage, boss and WiFi multiplayer too. While we won't spoil the stages or bosses — not that they're new, what with Generations being a compilation of Sonic's best bits and all — we can say the game's online multiplayer pits two Sonics..
Look away, kids
SEGA's continuing to support the 3DS strongly with an array of new and revamped games, and the famous publisher has just rubber-stamped release dates for some of its games due in the coming months. Here's the full list: Shinobi — 11th November (Europe), 15th November (North America)Sonic Generations — 22nd November (North America), 25th November (Europe)CRUSH3D — 10th January..
Not long to wait
After earlier confirmation that Sonic Generations will indeed see release on 3DS next month, we now have the game's final confirmed release dates in North America and Europe. North Americans get a few days' head start on Europe with a release date set for Tuesday 22nd November, while Europeans can pick up Sonic's adventure the...
Delay rumours may be off target
There's been Internet grumblings recently that Sonic Generations might overshoot its projected November release date and land in 2012. However SEGA has reassured excited fans that the game will still see release next month: Sonic Generations for the Nintendo 3DS system will be released later in November 2011. Of course things can still change and SEGA has put back..
Some good, some bad
Sonic Generations — the ultimate celebration of everything fans love about SEGA's iconic hero — just veered dangerously into "uh-oh" territory. The game's official Japanese site just opened and revealed that alongside Sonic, Tails, Dr Robotnik and Metal Sonic, the so-called ultimate life form Shadow the Hedgehog...
Open your heart
While the 3DS version of Sonic Generations wasn't available to play at the recent Eurogamer Expo, SEGA has released a flush of new screenshots showing the classic Emerald Coast stage from Dreamcast launch title Sonic Adventure. The iconic killer whale chase remains intact, and judging from the screenshots will appear in both Classic and Modern Sonic interpretations of the coastal..
What more do you need to know?
The full level line-up for Sonic Generations is still a closely guarded secret at SEGA, but there's no doubt whatsoever that the first stage is a 3D recreation of where it all began: Green Hill Zone. SEGA just unveiled 23 new screenshots showing Classic and Modern Sonic take on the iconic stage, the former doing little more than running and jumping while his modern..
Nintendo UK just let loose a set of new screens and details for Sonic Generations, showing classic Sonic the Hedgehog 2 stage Casino Night Zone. The page also reveals you'll be able to use accumulated Play Coins to unlock new challenges, with new missions opened up via StreetPass exchanges with other players. Two owners of the game can face off with the multi-card multiplayer mode to earn..
We can hear the music now
SEGA just dropped a bunch of screenshots for its upcoming 3DS hedgehog romp Sonic Generations showing the evergreen mascot racing through the Mushroom Hill Zone from 1994's Sonic & Knuckles. We got chance to try the game in July, and you can race through our Sonic Generations 3DS preview to read our early thoughts on whether or not this can deliver the much longed-for..
Or a Chaos Emerald, maybe
We've got some fresh new shots of the special stage from Sonic Generations and we're not afraid to use them. As previously confirmed, the special stage rather resembles the bonus level from Sonic Heroes, with the spiky speedster collecting variously coloured bubbles or balloons to get ever closer to that elusive Chaos Emerald. We went hands-on with an early version of the..
Making us blue
June was Sonic's 20th anniversary, and later this year Sega celebrates with Sonic Generations, a project that aims to combine the hedgehog's best and, admittedly, worst moments. 3DS owners get a very different version to PS3 and 360 fans, both for better and worse. Sonic Generations on 3DS joins traditional 16-bit style platforming...
Special stage featured too
SEGA just revealed a few more snippets of information about Sonic Generations on 3DS, and it seems the game will include some oft-requested features. AndriaSang reports that SEGA has confirmed two-player online competitive play for the title, sparking speculation there'll be a second playable character in the game besides the Classic and Modern versions of the hedgehog..
SEGA announces first details
SEGA has finally come out and confirmed what we've known for a while now: Sonic Generations is coming to 3DS, and it'll be out in November. The publisher also confirmed new details of the game, which it says will be set across "three defining eras" from the hedgehog's history, with all-new levels exclusively...
Handheld twist on the series
SEGA's Sonic Generations on PS3 and Xbox 360 will join "Classic Sonic" — the slightly portly, pale blue, side-scrolling version of the hero — with "Modern Sonic", the leaner, laser fast interpretation familiar from recent 3D releases such as Sonic Colours and Sonic Unleashed. For the upcoming 3DS version though, SEGA is making a few neat changes..
Not up to the task
Sonic Generations is coming to 3DS, and there was much rejoicing, but Wii owners are still nursing the disappointment that theirs is the only current home console not set to receive the spiky speedster's 20th anniversary celebration game. In an interview in this month's Nintendo Power, Sonic Team boss Takashi Iizuka reveals why:...
Two great games that play great together
Recently we've heard rumours of Shinobi 3DS, and those of Sonic Generations have been picking up steam. Just revealed to the 'net, the latest Nintendo Power cover seems to confirm both. You can view the cover in the gallery below. While it's likely that the Shinobi title referenced is the rumoured Shinobi...
SEGA report lists 3DS version
Last week, Gamestop listed Sonic Generations for 3DS and we tagged it as a rumour, as always when retailers list unannounced games. However, now SEGA has listed the game in a financial report, it's time to stop thinking "this is a rumour" and start thinking "this bag has no cat in it". Andriasang...
Gamestop thinks so, anyway
The joy that surrounded Sega's announcement of Sonic Generations — a celebration of the hedgehog's near-20 year career — quickly dissipated for Nintendo fans when it emerged the game is not heading to Wii, 3DS or DS. Don't give up on the blue guy just yet though, as according to an alleged Gamestop release list he may...
