Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate will be available to European and North American customers this autumn for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
We pretty much knew that the third iteration in the Dead or Alive 5 fighting series was coming our way after Famitsu spilt the beans. The upgraded version will contain currently undisclosed characters and features not found in previous versions and will contain all of the extra content from Dead or Alive 5 Plus for the PlayStation Vita. So far, all we know is that a pair of custard filled breasts named Momiji from Ninja Gaiden will be playable.
If you’re a Sega Addict there’s a good chance you’re a big fan of Toejam & Earl already (which we definitely are), but if you somehow missed the experience all I can tell you is we certainly find it hilarious and we’d love to see it remade. In fantastic news, the creator of that title, Greg Johnson, has a new adventure on its way called Doki-Doki Universe from his new studio HumaNature and it’s coming to PS4, PS3 and Vita.
A multi-generation experience, Johnson intends to make the experience accessible for everybody. The full project is described as a “set of related products that will be released at the same time”, though what we know so far is it will feature a messaging app for mobile devices as well as a “light” version of the client, not providing the full game but giving players the opportunity to travel the universe, socialise and take part in “personality quizzes.” Johnson described the genre as mash as “RPG/Simulation/Interactive Story”, and it seems to be more about the journey than where you end up, following a robot as he travels strange universes in search of his own humanity.
If you didn’t catch the teaser Famitsu let fly last week (and the accompanying video posted above), it has now been confirmed that the unannounced Dead or Alive related project is Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate. As is tradition for modern fighters at this point, the re-release will feature additional characters and features, though the only unlock so far confirmed is Mojimi, making an appearance from the Ninja Gaiden franchise.
Though we don’t know any further information, you can rest assured the game will make it to current generation consoles Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, but maybe it’ll find itself blurring the generations much like Dead or Alive 2 did and featuring next gen.
It’s hardly likely but with the certainty of more characters, maybe we can be hopeful and expect Ryo from Shenmue to make an appearance. If you guys could pick any unrelated Sega character to make a cameo and join the roster, who would it be?
Sega and Gearbox (and maybe even TimeGate, who knows) have been up night after night, delving through volumes of ancient texts on the ancient subject of alchemy. As dawn broke on March 18th 2013, both teams stood tall with heads held high as they proudly announced to the world that they have done the unthinkable.
They’d turned water into wine, lead into gold, and they’d fixed Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Truth be told, Sega have made no such claim, but they have indeed released a whopping 3.8GB patch to all Colonial Marines owning Steam users. The patch, which is larger than three or four of your average sized Dreamcast games combined, applies all fixes introduced in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version patches as well as visual improvements, increased texture resolutions, some fixes for PC-owning crashes and my favourite:
Resolved issue where campaign Motion Tracker could incorrectly in multiplayer loadouts.
Yes, that is a direct quote from the official patch notes which can be read in full after the jump.

I have probably said this before in a news post, but PS Plus really is an amazing thing. You get free games, people! And ka-razy discounts! Anyway, my free advertising aside, let’s talk about what PS Plus gets you this month: the entire Platinum game, Vanquish, for the low cost of free. You can’t pass this up. And for our UK readers, the digital version of Aliens: Colonial Marines is marked down 20% for the first 2 weeks of its release. So go hit up these deals!

I know, I know. I say it constantly, but Japan really does get all the cool stuff! If you buy the limited edition Yakuza 5 PS3 system at certain retail outlets in Japan, you can enter yourself in a raffle to win some sweet Yakuza 5 swag. Hit the jump to see all the prizes! More >
Yakuza 5, the game that has it all, including a fully playable version of Virtua Fighter, chicken racing and even ramen cross-promotion. What’s that? It has Japanese gangsters as too? That’s all well and good, but what this game really needs is some HATSUNE MIKU OH YEAH!
Just when you’d thought you’d seen the last of her, the super-popular vocaloid pop sensation has been confirmed to appear in several forms in Yakuza 5. According to a broadcast on popular Japanese video sharing website Nico Nico Douga, Yakuza 5 character Shun Akiyama can walk past Hatsune Miku snow sculptures and win Miku toys from a claw machine, while Haruka Sawamura can dress up as the vocaloid and engage in dance battles.
Sega have made good use of the popular Hatsune Miku license to great success over the last few months. Unfortunately for Westerners, Yakuza 5, as well as its recently announced demo, will not be leaving the shores of Japan.
I’m having trouble deciding which is more cruel–the company that’s denying us what could be the biggest game in the Yakuza series, or the jerk blogger who keeps reminding everybody about what they’re being denied. What can I say? I’m a little scamp.
Next week, Japan will be getting their first taste of Yakuza 5 via a new demo. Starting on November 27th, players will be able to sift through the streets of Fukuoka, where series mainstay Kazuma Kiryu has been hiding out as a cab driver. The demo will feature both story and combat elements.
Again, I’m sorry for doing this to you. It brings me no pleasure whatsoever. No, seriously. Don’t look at me like that. I wanna play it too.
News just in from our under cover Sega Addicts agent Scott Morrison: According to official GameStop documentation, Anarchy Reigns will be available for pre-order with a release date of April 3rd 2013, as shown in the professionally taken image above.
Where have GameStop gotten this information? We don’t know. Is the release date set in stone? Probably not. Anarchy Reign for only $30?! I know rite!
We’ll keep you updated with any further information as we get it. Be sure to hit the jump for a sexy high resolution image of the bit of GameStop paper. Cheers to Mr. Morrison for the intel.
Sonic Boom 2012 provided us with the confirmation we were expecting regarding the rerelease of Sonic Adventure 2 on XBLA and PSN, however there was no mention of a PC release in the announcement. Considering that all previous Dreamcast ports were available for download for PC owners, it would be expected that Sonic Adventure 2 would be as well. Luckily, game rating organisations have come to the rescue once again with the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) officially rating the game as E10+ for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and ‘Windows PC’.
‘But why E10+ Michael? T’was Rougue’s big ol’ boobies weren’t it?’ I hear you cry. But no, the E10+ rating is in fact a result of ‘“cartoony” gunfire and rockets. The theme song for one playable character contains the word “damn.”‘ Well thanks for that Knuckles. You used to be cool.
