Ryu ga Gotoku 2

August 30, 2006

Despite Sega’s upcoming Yakuza still not being released locally yet (5th Sept in the US, 15th in the EU), and the game barely being a year old, it’s appearently getting a sequel for the Playstation 2 .

Update: The sequel is about 80% complete, and it’s supposed to take place a year after the first game. There’s a trailer at the official site (contains spoilers to the first game though).


Virtua Tennis 3 LGC 2006 Update

August 26, 2006

IGN have some interesting info regarding Virtua Tennis 3 at Liepzig. Here’s what they had to say:

Player’s clothes now flowed realistically with their movements and the clipping errors we witnessed a few months ago are nowhere to be found. Sega also placed the PS3 version directly next to the Xbox 360 build allowing us to see the slight differences between the two. This was made more interesting by the fact that the two games are being developed by separate companies with AM2 working on the PS3 title and Sumo Digital developing the 360 version. Plainly put, the PS3 looked a little better with sharper textures and incredibly detailed player models. It was almost eerie when we noticed the veins sticking out in our character’s forehead.

Sega also announced that there will be 10 brand new mini-games included in VT3 along with two returning challenges from series. And because these short diversions are one of the best reasons to play Virtua Tennis we were delighted to hear that developers are currently working on some type of multiplayer mini-game mode. We’re not sure exactly what this refers to but lets hope for some competitive split-screen action. We’ll have more tennis news as we draw closer to the launch of PS3.

Miyamoto Says Fans Want Sonic in Smash Bros Brawl

August 19, 2006

Tip & Tricks magazine claim that Shigeru Miyamoto says that the most requested character to appear in Super Smash Bro Brawl on the Wii is non other Sonic the Hedgehog. If you remember a while back they were asking fans on the game’s official site who’d they’d want to see in the game.

And I think it’s a definite possibility he’d be in the game, Solid Snake is in there after all (which potentially opens the door to other 3rd party characters).

I’d personally be delighted to see him in the game.
