The Vita version of Phantasy Star Online 2 will have a fair amount of integration with its PC counterpart, but they won’t be released alongside one another, according to Sega. The handheld version is set for a 2013 release, where as the PC version is still coming sometime this year.
Sega said that PSO II on Vita is still in the early stages of development and, as of now, is only about 10% complete. Andriasang posted the first screens, which reflect the need for that extra 90% – they’re a bit rough around the edges.
SEGA’s number one Virtua Fighter, Akira Yuki, appears to be stepping into the Dead Or Alive arena as he is shown in this trailer delivering a brutal beatdown to Kasumi. Could this be the foreshadowing of another type of crossover?
Recently we saw a teaser trailer revealing what we assumed to be Jet Set Radio coming to XBLA and PSN. Our assumptions were correct because Sega officially announced it would be coming to those platforms this summer. What the teaser didn’t originally show is that it is also coming to the PC as well. Also those fans who hang on to the name Jet Grind Radio will be disappointed, as it is officially called Jet Set Radio.
Along with the announcement, Sega also released some screenshots for the HD remake. When originally released the game was beautiful and striking to look at, and twelve years later the pioneer of cell shaded games still doesn’t look half bad.
Jet Set Radio, Jet Grind Radio, or whatever you want to call it, is coming to XBLA and PSN. Sega released a trailer that didn’t say much, but it said enough. A song from the game played, a message said “Guess who’s back,” and the franchises logo was shown at the end.
It’s about time we’re getting this, because Sega announced they would do several Dreamcast HD remakes a couple years ago. We have gotten Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi, but not much else. We don’t know when the beloved Dreamcast game will be releasing, but at least we know it’s coming.
It’s not exactly the collaboration kids dreamed about in the early 90′s, but at least we can find out who’s better in Olympic sporting events. Check out the Euro launch trailer starring your favorite blue hedgehog and Italian plumber. Also be sure to try out the limited time demo available on the Nintendo eShop.
You may have heard that Gearbox Software’s long awaited Aliens: Colonial Marines has been delayed once again. For a game that’s technically been in the works since 2001 such a thing has become common place by now but I don’t think we’ll have to wait years (it only got pushed back until “Fall 2012″). However Gearbox was nice enough to soften the punch of yet another delay with a new exciting trailer which you’ll find below…

Condemned: Criminal Origins was one of the Xbox 360′s launch titles back in 2005 and later appeared on the PC in April of the following year. Coming from Monolith Productions, best known for their F.E.A.R. series, Condemned sticks with the dark and demented subject matter which now Monolith is pretty well known for in their games. The player takes the role of S.C.U. (Serial Crimes Unit) investigator Ethan Thomas as he chases a psychotic killer through the violent underbelly of Metro City. The game features a fairly in-depth melee combat system, better than average AI, and an atmosphere that’ll make your skin crawl at times…
The series began as an arcade light-gun shooter in 1997 and now the undead have risen once again on the PS3. Playstation owners can expect to blast through hordes of savage, flesh eating zombies in early 2012. Both titles will also be remastered in HD, contain trophies, and are Playstation Move compatible. Here’s the rundown from Sega’s press release today:
Let’s face it. The Thanksgiving holiday is just around the corner, and while most people will enjoy conversing with their friends and family, this means one thing to gamers: play time. Thankfully, Sega is well versed with that.
So take a timeout from some of the stellar triple A titles this holiday, and familiarize yourself with some of the beloved Sega classics that will be (and are currently for PSN) on sale for next to nothing. Sales will be available for PSN and XBLA.
Let’s take a look at the run down…
Sega has put together an announcement trailer for Yakuza: Dead Souls.
I’ve had the chance to play Yakuza 3 on PS3 sparingly. In fact, its a game I want to get back to someday, along with Yakuza 4. Sega is surely trying to take a bite out of a market that will boost sales on the Yakuza games. I guess I can’t blame them. Zombies are all the rage.
