Some big news on the Sega front

Project Sonic 2017 is now officially titled Sonic Forces.  It is due out for launch this holiday for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

The game’s key element this time is of “forces.”  On one side there is Sonic and his friends, and on the other there is Dr. Eggman and his evil army, representing the forces and good and evil.

The game is using a new engine called Hedgehog Engine 2. The developers are promising this will be closer to Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations than other games.

However there is some bad news, as Sonic Mania has been delayed until Summer. This is being done to ensure that the game is of utmost quality.

Atlus sent out the following

The Velvet Room is place where Personas can be experimented on with reckless abandon, but there’s a catch. (Remember, there’s ALWAYS a catch.) Since the protagonist is a prisoner of his own Velvet Room, he must earn the privilege of being a Persona mad scientist. Although basic fusion and registration are immediately available to the prisoner, features such as advanced/network fusion, training, strengthening, and others are not. That’s where the Twin Wardens Caroline and Justine come in. Not only are they Igor’s assistants, but they also happen to be the “rehabilitation” officers who will be overseeing the protagonist during his stay. By spending time with them (completing prison work), additional fun experimentation options will unlock. Oh, and in case you can’t tell them apart, Caroline is the mean one and Justine is the nice one.
Learn about Caroline and Justine in the new trailer below!

Persona 5 looks amazing and we cannot wait to play it ourselves. We are just a month away, so not long now.

 Cifaldi stated

I shipped a collection called Mega Man Legacy Collection the year before last (it’s been a while), and we’ve got another one coming out soon that they’re gonna announce any day now. I don’t know when – I wish I could talk about it but it’s really cool.

It is not yet known if this is Mega Man related or not, but it is worth noting that this is the 30th anniversary of Mega Man this year. Could this be an X collection? We shall see soon.

No GravatarAfter 10 years at EA, Peter Moore will be leaving this year to join Liverpool Football Club as its new chief executive officer. Moore will begin in June and report directly to the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group.

During his 10 years at EA, he was in a number of leadership positions, including chief operating officer and president of EA SPORTS, notably managing the FIFA series. This is a big change for EA and will lead to some big changeups being made at the company.

No GravatarThe Nintendo Switch is a big deal in terms of gaming. It is opening new ways to play, just like Nintendo intended. The console/handheld hybrid is poised to be a must have gadget this year, but I cannot help but think of a game that was doomed to obscurity on the Wii, received a horrible port on Wii U, and can be saved by the Switch.

Rodea The Sky Soldier was Yuji Naka’s spiritual sequel to Nights into Dreams for the Wii that almost became vaporware. It was seemingly saved from development hell with ports for 3DS and an HD Port for Wii U. But the problem became tat the Wii U port was a port of the inferior 3DS version and not a true HD version of the Wii game. The Wii game was packed in with the Wii U retail release’s first run but now is lost to all, with it never being available in any form to anyone again. Or is it?

The Nintendo Switch has multiple playstyles, and using the Joy Con controllers. you can replicate the Wii gameplay to an extent.  If Kadokawa Games and Prope were to work together again, they could remaster the original Wii release in true HD and bring it to the Switch. This way, Yuji Naka’s true vision of the game could be experienced by everyone. In fact, the game would benefit greatly from the HD rumble and improvements could be made. This could in fact become the definitive version of the game.

I realize that this will be a lot of work, and for a game like Rodea, this might be risky. This is especially the case since the game didn’t sell very well and the publisher and developer might be hesitant to give this another try. However, the truth is that the Wii u and 3DS versions were simply not good, while the Wii version was excellent. If the Wii version was given a true update with better visuals and factoring in what the Joy Cons can add to it, while not detracting from the original experience, then the game will be much better received. As well, given the massive hype around the Nintendo Switch, this game might even get a much better audience than it ever could have had on the Wii U or Nintendo 3Ds.

I really want to see the original game get a second chance to wow people, and I acknowledge that this is a long shot, but this is exactly the type of game that the Switch can save. It was in development hell for the Wii, suffered on the Nintendo 3Ds and Wii U, but can thrive on the Nintendo Switch. I Hope the developer and publisher consider this.
