Sega announced in the most recent issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu that new game Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai 2 will be coming out for the Nintendo 3DS. The game is a follow-up to Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai on the Nintendo DS where Miku fans can play along to songs using the touch screen, or with the face buttons. So far only three song have been revealed to appear:
“Do Re Mi Fa Rondo” by 40m P
“Yume Yume” by Deco*27
“Koneko no Paya Paya” by One Cup P
It’s very likely that Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai 2 is the game Sega will be revealing with their new teaser site tomorrow. It wouldn’t be the first time Famitsu have spilled the beans on an upcoming Sega reveals.

The Nintendo 3DS port of arcade classic Super Hang-On is available to Japanese Sega fans via the 3DS eShop. As there’s no official word as to whether we’ll see the port in North america or Europe, the above video will have to make do.
3D Super Hang-On was developed by M2, who were responsible for Space Harrier 3D as well as the fantastic Sega Vintage Collections. This version of Super Hang-On has similar features to Space Harrier 3D such as 3D visuals, widescreen, gyro sensor controls (as shown by the tilting in the video above), replay and mid-race saving, and much more.

The Namco Bandai, Sega and Capcom cross over game Project X Zone has had its price slashed by 85% by one Japanese retailer. It is suspected that the retailer in question is trying to shift unsold stock as the version on the game on sale is in fact the limited edition box-set. This version was given to customers who purchased the first print of the game and would have usually been expected to have sold quite quickly, however the fact that retailers still have copies this far after its release in October last year is concerning.
The reduction sees the game’s price falling from ¥6,280 ($72 / £44) to a ridiculous ¥980 ($11 / £7). If such a price drop is indeed indicative of the game’s performance in Japan, our hopes of seeing it arrive on Western shores may have dropped with it.

The new 3D version of Sega classic Space Harrier made its way to the Japanese Nintendo 3DS eShop yesterday. If you fancied a sneak peak of the game then Youtube user NintenDaan1 has uploaded a good portion of footage of the new game as seen above.
All looks well with the update, even without being able to see the 3D in effect. The tilting screen certainly doesn’t seem to take anything away from the game and the graphics and sound has been ported intact. Let’s just hope we see this game become available for all us Sega Addicts that live outside of Japan very soon.
Saito’s main aim with the game was “to keep the same as light and accessible as possible”, the result being a game where players must sort through thousands of colour coded bags, racking up combos and score multipliers.
Although I rarely travel with anything more than hand luggage myself, I’ve always secretly been fascinated by the process of luggage sorting and handling and, from the looks of it, believe that this game would perfectly fill the time spent waiting in airports for gates to be announced and then subsequently opened. Western audiences can download the game directly from the Nintendo eShop now.
Siliconera has more screen shots of everyone’s favorite, upcoming, not-going-to-be-released-outside-of-japan game, Project X Zone. Morrigan, a long time favorite of Sega Addicts, features prominently. Her artwork is very pronounced.
Not wanting anyone to feel left out, Sega will be making the infamous Game Gear Sonic title, Sonic Labyrinth, available for purchase through the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console tomorrow, May 16th. Most would consider this to be the worst of all the several Sonic Game Gear offerings, and potentially one of the worst Sonic games ever made, due to a lack of ingenuity, poor controls and the complete removal of one of Sonic’s key characteristics, his speed.
I’m personally puzzled as to why Sega simply didn’t let the game to R.I.P. on the Game Gear after its initial poor reception and subsequent criticisms by fans every time they include Sonic Labyrinth in another compilation or set of unlockable ‘bonus’ games. I don’t believe that re-releasing this game in any territory will do anything good for Sega or the Sonic brand, but as far as I know, the game may very well be a cult classic back in Japan. Had an experience with this game in the past? Feel up to talking about it? Let us know down below!
The Sega Game Gear classic…
Okay, I’m sorry, I can’t type that with a straight face. Sonic Labyrinth is a Sega Game Gear classic that ranks among the worst Sonic games of all times. Is it worth your money? That depends on your personal tolerance for pain.
The ESRB has once again proven itself to be a great source for videogame announcements. After several other Game Gear titles had been leaked by the rating board, a little known game called Vapire: Master of Darkness has been leaked there too. What you can see above is the amazing cover for the EU version. The video over at Siliconera shows that it plays a lot like Castlevania and feature some good music too.
I’m definitely looking forward to this game coming to the 3DS Virtual Console, as the Game Gear emulator on there is pretty much perfect and it lets me discover all those games I have never even heard of before.
