Nintendo will be starting off their Nintendo Unleashed Tour at the upcoming MCM London expo and will be showcasing playable demos of both Project X Zone and 3D Space Harrier. So far Sega’s entire range of “3D” Nintendo 3DS ports have been exclusive to the Japanese eShop.
So why show off 3D Space Harrier at MCM London? I don’t know, but I intend to find out.
That’s right, Sega Addicts’ Michael Westgarth will be heading over to the London ExCel exhibition centre this Friday to play Project X Zone, 3D Space Harrier and whatever else we can get our grubby little mitts on. There’s also going to be a retro gaming exhibition with playable Mega Drives. So if you a tried, sweaty British fella playing on a Mega drive, that’d be me. No wait, that’d be pretty much everyone. Hmm.
Expect reports on MCM London’s offerings on Sega Addicts sometime next week!

The reveal of Sonic: Lost World may be the hottest story coming out of Sega’s recently announced collaboration with Nintendo, but in the meantime another promise is finally being fulfilled: more Game Gear games on the 3DS.
Other than the previously outed Sonic Labyrinth, Nintendo’s handheld will also be getting Crystal Warriors, Columns, Sonic Blast, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine, Defenders of the Oasis, Tails Adventure, Shining Force II: Sword of Hayja, Sonic Drift 2, G-Loc Air Battle, and Vampire: Master of Darkness. That’s 13 titles in all. Hallelujah.
Even without any specific release info, this news is cause for celebration. Sega’s months-long silence led many of us to assume that the company had moved on from Game Gear rereleases, so the announcement of 13 games all at once is a pleasant surprise indeed. Just the prospect of playing Defenders of the Oasis and Sword of Hayja have me grinning like an idiot.
UPDATE: Sega released an official statement on their partnership with Nintendo. The statement can be read in full after the jump.
Sonic Lost World will be a Nintendo Wii U and 3DS exclusive title, according to today’s Nintendo Direct.
Nintendo announced today that they have started a worldwide partnership with Sega and that more Wii U and 3DS exclusive Sonic games are on the way.
The only details Nintendo gave on Sonic Lost World is that it will be an “action adventure” game. The above screen shot was also shown. We’ll have to wait until E3 2013 for more details.

It’s a new year, and with it comes a new Sonic game right? I’m honestly still riding the coattails of Sonic & Danica Patrick go to the beach Transformed, so these announcements can take their time in my opinion. Anyway, Sega filed a trademark in Europe for something called “Sonic Lost World.” Shall we let the Sonic Cycle begin? Though I’m confident Sonic Generations put the Sonic Cycle to rest, we can always find ways to get excited over the slightest bit of news. Maybe Sonic Lost World is Josh Newey’s secret fan project to finally incorporate his love for Jurassic Park and Sega into one behemoth of a game? Maybe it’s another Chao-related adventure? Maybe you can hit the jump to see the fancy trademark?
Releasing next month on Nintendo 3DS, Project X Zone continues to fill the internet with reasons to get pumped for this crazy crossover game. The trailer above highlights Capcom with many characters from the Mega Man, Dark Stalkers, and Street Fighter universe. I’m pretty excited for this insane bout, and I hope you are as well. It’s always good to see a swarm of Servebots run across the screen like the good ol’ days on Dreamcast. So, did you catch a glimpse of any of your favorite Capcom characters?
Sega has announced that a 3D remake of the original Sonic the Hedgehog will be released on the Japanese 3DS eShop next week. Like 3D Hang-On and 3D Space Harrier before it, 3D Sonic the Hedgehog takes the classic 16-bit game and adds the option for 3D stereoscopic visuals. In addition to those 3D visuals, they’ve also added the spin-dash ability, save states and the option to emulate the look of a 90′s CRT TV.
The game will launch for 600 Yen but unfortunately there’s still no word of a Western release for any of these 3D Sega remakes.
Do you think we’ll start seeing any of these Japanese eShop releases in the West? Would you be picking any up if they were available? What other games would you like to see in this 3D series?
To put it bluntly, the 3DS Game Gear resurgence in the US has been a joke.
While we were given a couple of the handheld’s best titles in the supposedly inaugural batch released in March of 2012, we have gotten nothing but broken promises ever since. Meanwhile, Japanese 3DS users have gotten their hands on no less than fourteen eShop Game Gear rereleases–yes, fourteen–including such titles as Sonic & Tails 2, Columns, Sonic Drift 2, Ariel: Legendary Crystal, Tails Adventure, Puyo Puyo, and of course, Sonic Labyrinth.
After 13 months of waiting, we may finally be getting at least one more game out West, as Sega’s dust-covered eShop listing for Sonic Labyrinth has been updated with a price point of $4.99. That’s right: Sonic Labyrinth, often regarded as one of the worst Sonic games ever made, could be our light at the end of the tunnel.
*Sigh* I give up.
As is expected with any Hatsune Miku title, the latest game starring the Vocaloid icon is already stirring up some buzz among fans. Sega is feeding the fire with the first gameplay trailer, which debuts some cheery tapping gameplay for the track “Nekoko no Payapaya.”
While rhythm games have never been my thing, I’ve always found the 3DS to be a pretty receptive platform for the genre. Of course, button pressing works fine, but something about hearing yourself tap on the screen really helps with keeping the beat. Based on the trailer alone, it looks like that touch screen will be a very big part of Project Mirai 2.
It’s still pretty unlikely we’ll see this game make it out West, but with the Hatsune Miku Facebook campaign still garnering quite a few “Likes,” I’d say there’s more hope now than there ever was before.
The first trailer for the Western release of the epic 3DS crossover Project X Zone has finally hit the web and boy what a video it is! The promotional material (viewable above) contains all the action we’ve come to have seen from the Japanese footage, but with Western subtitles to help us know what’s finally happening! This trailer comes hot on the heels of the game’s recent Western release announcement, an unlikely event which shocked and delighted fans of all three companies.
Project X Zone is bound to be released in America on June 25th. As a special treat for “for the fans” Namco Bandai are producing free limited editions available to all those who buy the game on launch for the $39.99 price. The limited edition will feature a mini-art book, poster, and music CD. Indeed this is great news for worried fans who never even thought they’d get this game to begin with! Now if we could all just buy it when it comes out to justify this…
It seemed like a miracle when Project X Zone was announced for localization back in January, but now it’s for certain we’ll get it. The news came in on the official site, stating it will be released on June 25th, 2013 in North America. Many people thought this was an error, but Namco Bandai confirmed the news with IGN. Although it has a release date for the US, they still haven’t announced a date for the PAL version.
It appears that my dream game will become a reality sooner than I thought. Three of my favorite companies in one strategy RPG! Are you excited for the game? If you lack a 3DS, I highly suggest you get one, and not only for this game!
