Sega Unveils First Sonic Forces Footage

Sega has revealed the first footage from the upcoming Sonic Forces. Originally known as “Project Sonic” when it was announced alongside Sonic Mania, Sonic Forces is a “modern” 3D Sonic the Hedgehog game. This means that the title is more in line with games like Sonic Adventure and Sonic Colors. As you can see from the trailer, Sonic Forces has all of the conventions you would expect from a current-day Sonic game. The little blue hedgehog runs down steep hills collecting rings and destroying robots as the city around him is (presumably) being attacked by Doctor Eggman. Truth be told, there isn’t a lot going on here other than Sonic running as fast as his little feet will take him. But if you’re into these type of Sonic games then I’m sure this is all gravy to you. [embedded content] As was previously reported, Sonic Forces will feature both 3D and 2D gameplay akin to 2011’s Sonic Generations. Unfortunately, the trailer doesn’t show any gameplay from the 2D portions of the game. We can only speculate on how the 2D sections will play out. If they are anything like they were READ FULL STORY AT GEEK!

Shenmue III Development Update Video Released

[embedded content] While everyone was blown out of their seats when Sony surprisingly announced Shenmue III at the company’s E3 2015 press conference, there hasn’t been a lot of stuff to report on the game itself after the initial reveal. Fortunately, developer Ys Net agrees and has released a Shenmue III “Development Report” video that not only shows the game being developed, but there’s some quick-time event (QTE) action as well. Oh, and Yu Suzuki makes an appearance, too. In the video, Ys Net apologizes for the infrequent updates, and states that the studio will do their best to provide monthly updates. Here’s the complete message from Ys Net: Dev Room Progress Report Vol. 2 Greetings Everyone, It has been a long time since our last update, and we are painfully aware you all have been eagerly awaiting the monthly report.

Project Diva Future Tone's Second DLC Gives Us 'Lots Of Laugh'

The second installment of downloadable content for the already ridiculously-huge Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone has arrived. The Second Encore pack adds more costumes, accessories and four songs to the over 200 in the game, including popular Project Mirai tune “Lots of Laugh.” Watch me play. Advertisement “LOL – Lots of Laugh -” is the star of the second $9.99 installment (or free with the $24.99 season pass) of Future Tone DLC, at least for me. The song was originally playable with the chibi characters of Project Mirai for the 3DS, so this marks the first time we get to see it performed by a properly proportioned Miku. Here’s my first attempt on hard: I’m a big fan of the bunny costume. Not so much the giant creepy rabbit. There should be something for every sort of Miku fan in this latest pack, even if they are horrible and don’t enjoy LOL.
