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.
It’s kind of nostalgic to be talking about an old school arcade machine isn’t it?
Well if this new promotional trailer for Harpoon Lagoon proves anything it’s that Sega are at least still confident in the arcade industry. In this advert Sega shows us just how the machine works with the help of a very happy American lady. The game involves an aquatic adventure which up to 4 people can embark on and if that tickles your fancy then you can view the trailer above.
…I don’t know why but the narrators voice really amuses me.

We’ve been hearing universally glorious things about Duranik and Redspotgames’ upcoming shooter for what feels like an eternity now. When they missed their prospective release date last year, the latest addition to the Dreamcast family sadly drifted into the periphery.
Well it seems that celebrations are in order, as the developers have announced that Sturmwind is indeed still coming, with a new release date of April 24th. With a total of 7 worlds made up of 16 stages and 20 boss fights, this thing sounds like no small adventure for your beloved box o’ dreams. I don’t know why you wouldn’t have your Dreamcast as a permanent fixture in your living room, but if you don’t, it’s time to drag Rocky out of retirement.
You can read the silly faux-military press release after the jump. Tell me you’re as excited as I am.

To commemorate the Phantasy Star series 25th anniversary Sega have decided to go all out with a full blown orchestra concert. This Japan-only exclusive show (conducted by Masamichi Amano, and performed by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra) will cover the entire spectrum of this series, giving one of gamings most recognisable RPG franchise’s a proper celebration. The concert itself will feature 10 different songs, and if that wasn’t enough reason to go everyone coming will receive exclusive music themed items for hugely popular Phantasy Star Online 2!
Above you can see the trailer for the concert which mainly just shows off the new items available at the concert. The event itself will take place on March 30th in the Hibiya Public Hall, Tokyo, and is sure to be a blast for all involved! Who knows maybe if they like it enough in Japan it’ll make it’s way over to the West… right? Right? Right?!!
Sega today released a new trailer for their upcoming addition to the Total War series by Creative Assembly, Rome II. A playable battle within the game, it features Rome’s crushing defeat to united Germanic tribes in The Battle of Of Teutoburg Forest.
The trailer exhibits some of the title’s new features, including their “true line-of-sight system, deployable battlefield technology” and their “tense new style of ambush scenarios.” It also features some seriously angry dogs. You can also catch the game’s first gameplay trailer here.
We can expect Total War: Rome II this October.
Two new trailers have been revealed for the upcoming Sega Saturn fighting revamp, Darkstalkers Resurrection. This HD remake will feature the second and third game’s in Capcom’s unique series with redone visuals and an online multiplayer mode. To promote the game Capcom has released a few character specific trailers, such as the one featured above which details Lord Raptor, a rock musician from beyond the grave.
When you hit the jump you’ll be treated to a look at Victor, a hulking monster who will be sure to dominate matches across the globe when the game hits XBLA and PSN next month.
Now this is the good stuff.
The latest trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines shows off what has arguably been the most hyped aspect of the entire game–the Left 4 Dead-esque multiplayer. With quick peeks at new Xeno classes like the Lurker, Xeno abilities like Smoke Screen, and Marine abilities like…um…Revive Teammate, this fun little trailer makes playing as a Xenomorph look exhilarating as hell, and makes playing as a Marine look like a harrowing suicide mission.
And that’s how it should be.
This trailer for the PS3 version of Hatsune Miku’s latest (Project F, as opposed to Project f on the Vita) is as charming as the Vocaloid singer has ever been, and presents a handful of tunes sung from the digital vocal chords of various friends of the Hatsune. These games have never really interested me, but even I have to admit these songs are pretty charming.
The game will introduce a handful of brand new Hatsune Miku tracks, including:
- “A Thousand Cherry Blossoms” by Kurousa-P
- “Rin-chan Now!” by Owata-P
- “Dream Eater Shirokuro Baku” by Nem
- “Tokyo Teddy Bear” by Neru
- “Tell Your World” by livetune
- “Sweet Devil” by Hachioji P
Project Diva F hits the Playstation 3 in Japan on March 7th. Of course, I wouldn’t hold my breath on this game making it stateside, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the music in the meantime.
When the latest Aliens: Colonial Marines trailer hit the web a little while back, our reaction was…well, not good. That was due in large part to an oddly out-of-place voice over barking expletives and horrid one liners that just didn’t feel congruous with the tone set by previous ads.
Well, that’s apparently because that wince-inducing monologue is not actually in the game. Shortly after the trailer first hit the web, Gearbox Software creative director Mikey Neumann piped up on Twitter to allay our concerns,
The dialog in the Aliens trailer today is not from the game. I also did not write it. Love you!

I kind of assumed that this was nothing more than a blatant grab for the military FPS crowd, but I’d be lying if I said that speech didn’t have me a little concerned. It’s nice to have some confirmation that this is just another entry in a long line of Sega’s marketing snafus.
At least the trailer looked really cool.
With the release of Aliens: Colonial Marines just a few weeks away, Sega has released a new “Kickass” trailer–yes that’s what it’s called–that is very obviously pointed in the direction of the military FPS crowd.
As with all the other trailers for the game, the action looks lovely and thrilling, but this one includes a debriefing speech delivered by what sounds like a hardened, grizzled general, featuring such cringe-worthy one-liners as “We’re not just fighting for the human race; we’re fighting for the title of baddest motherf***ers in the galaxy. That’s a battle I intend to win.” Ugh.
Anyway, monologue aside, the shooting still looks great, and the last few moments featuring power loader combat look pitch perfect. I just hope the motif of “badass” doesn’t trump the fear in the full game, as military shooters just aren’t my bag.
