Sega 2013 "We release awesome games and tell nobody!"; " READ POST 498

Recommended Posts

The 'White' screen was probably changed because it was obvious as to what the game was, probably a title screen or something very clear. The other was left because it's hard to tell.

 

My guess is Space Harrier or some kind of SHMUP game.

It's Sonic Dash. Not photoshopped, just blurry. The right pane is just a side on camera view. You can even see the blue GUI template objects in the top left corner, as the game isn't running.

... .. ... OK seriously... How many girls is this who have been spotted just dancing with Sonic this year? Let alone in those... odd photos?

He's popular with the ladies. I guess despite the new partnership, he wants to start a Cold War with Nintendo's Link over how many chiquitas he can reel in.

Hey Sonic, if you really want to beat him, play the other team too! Twice as many people is twice as much fun!

...I notice a Sonic Boom 2012 shirt being worn by a person in the background. This makes me smile with joy!

Thought I may as well post this in the SEGA 2013 topic instead of the Sonic 4 thread.

 

From the SEGA blog:

As promised by SEGA:

 

Sonic CD Now Available on OUYA

 

Sonic CD is now available on OUYA for $2.99 (USD) with a free trial level to play through (see Free-To-Try details below). All you have to do is start up your OUYA, download Sonic CD from DISCOVER, the OUYA store, and experience Sonic’s journey to Little Planet in stunning quality!

 

 

 

Taxman's wonderful version of Sonic CD has now been released on so many systems, that I have lost count. I really hope that StealthTax Sonic 1&2 eventually comes to all the same platforms as well. Hint hint....

I realize TSSZ isn't to be trusted at the best of times, but have I missed a Sega article recently on Sonic 3K? They have a poll up about Sega confirming they aren't planning on releasing Sonic 3K on cell phones or something, no plans after Sonic 2 Stealth/Hax. Where did this confirmation come from. Haven't been able to find it with old Google.

Izuka was asked it at Sonic Boom during the Q&A. However, considering taxman handled the sonic 1&2 ports it's likely they aren't even aware of their existence. Ergo Sonic 3&K is still up in the air.

Yeah, I don't know why TSSZ is running a poll on that. SoA handle the mobile ports of Sonic games, and Iizuka and Sonic Team have very little to do with them. SCD and S1 haven't even been released over in Japan yet. S3K isn't confirmed, and could be a long way off if it's going to happen because S2 hasn't been shown off either. But just ignore TSSZ.

 

I'm not even saying that because it's TSSZ. I'm saying that because it's just daft.

Not to mention TSSZ has a history. Remember that Sonic Dimensions rumor?

 

TSSZ also has just as much history of being right. Remember that rumour they had that Project Needlemouse was actually going to be Sonic 4, and that it was also going to be episodic?

 

This is a pretty different matter though.

I think a number of people had guessed that it was going to be Sonic 4 and a downloadable title, but their rumour also included details such as "Sonic only, four zones, first zone is Splash Hill, last zone is EGG Station". So you know, I'm just saying that they're not always off the mark, however much we don't like them.

 

(Basically I don't want this topic to temporarily get flooded with "lol TSSZ is teh suckzors" posts)

You can add me to the prediction list. Hey sorry to go off topic, but I've always wondered who is that in your profile pic?

I don't think it is, actually. Sonic 1 and 2 got confirmed at the same time, but nothing was said on S3&K.

 

Sorry. Typo on my part.

Saying they have 'no plans' on releasing Sonic 3&K is just a standard/generic response. They won't even consider S3&K until Sonic 2 has been released. It will depend of the sales of Sonic 1&2 (whether they decide it's worth porting the new versions to consoles) and whether Taxman wants to keep working with SEGA.

 

I don't think it is, actually. Sonic 1 and 2 got confirmed at the same time, but nothing was said on S3&K.

 

SEGA only confirmed Sonic 1 was getting re-released. They never officially confirmed Sonic 2. It was Taxman over on Retro who said that SEGA asked him to "revamp the mobile versions of Sonic 1&2".

 

The chances are he has already begun working on Sonic 2. There have been no further updates with Sonic 1 and the version on Android seems pretty perfect and bug free. 

 

Sonic 3&K will likely get the same treatment, but we will have to be patient.
