Even Hatsune Miku Gets A Season Pass

It’s totally pati time. In case the more than 200 songs included in Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone weren’t enough, Sega’s got a Season’s Pass worth of downloadable content coming, starting with this week’s 1st Encore Pack. It’s time to “Ageage Again.” Advertisement With two out of three DLC packs already released for the Japanese version of the virtual idol rhythm game, it’s time for North America to get in on the extra stuff party. The 1st Encore Pack adds four more songs to the already impressive collection, including one of my personal favorites, Mitchie M’s “Ageage Again.” I’ve played and listened to the song so many times it’s almost second nature. Here’s a recording I shot this morning of my first attempt at it on Normal difficulty. Other new song additions include “shake it!,” “Cendrillon” and its constant companion, “Adolescence.” The 1st Encore Pack also includes a gaggle of new Modules (costumes), accessories and Extra Extreme difficulty versions of nine songs. The Ageage Again costume comes with animated hair. Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone’s 1st Encore Pack is now available for $9.99 on the READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

What Yakuza Games To Play After Yakuza 0

The best thing about Yakuza 0 isn’t just that it’s a damn fine video game, it’s that it serves as the perfect entry point for newcomers to a series that is thick on gangster lore. Once you’re done, the credits roll and you are mad for more Yakuza, though, you’re left with a question: what Yakuza game do I play next? Advertisement It’s not an easy one to answer! Yakuza 0 is a 2017 (well, 2015 in Japan) prequel for a series with five other main games in it, the first one dating back to 2005 and its sequels spread across multiple platforms. So while you’d assume playing Yakuzas 1-5 in order would be the correct thing to do, you would in fact be very wrong and would be making a terrible mistake. The five main Yakuza games that are currently available in the West (Yakuza 6, which is already out in Japan, won’t be released here until 2018) Forget the first Yakuza game (at least for now…I’ll explain later). It was released on PS2, and the English language version was given a celebrity dub featuring—and READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Yakuza 6 and Football Manager 2017 Help to Boost SEGA’s Net Sales

Like Square Enix, SEGA has released its financial report for the nine-month period ended December 31, 2016, reporting an increase in net sales and income.

The Entertainment Contents segment, which includes video games, also saw favorable performance from Phantasy Star Online 2, which celebrated its fourth anniversary. “With regard to the packaged game software market, expectations are rising for future expansion of the market due to the penetration of current generation hardware of home video game console,” reads the report.
