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.
In a recent tweet from Meggan Scavio, general manager of the Game Developers Conference, she hints that Yu Suzuki talked “strategy” with Mark Cerny about the long-awaited sequel to Shenmue.
As everyone knows, fans have been holding off for a Shenmue III for over a decade, rumors and speculations popping up here and there. Recently, rumors went around that Yu Suzuki considered the possibility of funds through Kickstarter. Yesterday morning, March 29th, Meggan Scavio posted said tweet, complete with a picture of Cerny and Suzuki standing side-by-side. Check it out after the jump.
Following Takashi Iizuka’s recent comments on the future of the Sonic the Hedgehog 4 series, he has now gone on to describe his ideas of what “Sonic” should be on the still unannounced Playstaion 3 and Xbox 360 successors, as well as the upcoming Wii U. In an interview with Eurogamer, the head of Sonic Team explained that he would like to continue developing the 3D platforming gameplay from recent titles and looks forward to utilising hardware that allows for a better representation of Sonic’s stylised world with real-time, dynamic lighting. Importantly, he stated that a “photo-realistic” Sonic game is not something Sonic Team would be working towards.
With regards to the Wii U, Iizuka states that Sonic is the “right fit” for the upcoming Nintendo console due to the original Wii’s immense success and the family orientated gaming experience. However, how Sonic Team will utilise the Wii U’s controller ” is something we’re still thinking about at the moment.”. Either Iizuka knows something we don’t, or he’s simply dreaming, however any such news at this point is exciting. What do you think this means for Sonic?
