Jason Clement posted a article in NintendoThe Sonic Boom franchise started last year with one title for Wii U, one for 3DS, and a TV show, and it looks like SEGA is continuing on with the series in the gaming space with a new title for 3DS called Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice. And once again, Sanzaru Games will be taking on development duties for this title. Featuring the same cast from Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (Sonic, Amy, Tails, Knuckles, and Sticks), this game is said to include more speed, adventure, and exploration as well as a unique focus on harnessing the power of fire and ice to aid each character. Also included is a new mode called Bot Racing, which will feature multiplayer gameplay and is all about speed. Throughout the course of the game, the player will unlock differently themed Bots that they can use to race in this mode with others. So why isn't there a Wii U companion game? It's likely because Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric performed well below SEGA's expected sales, and most reviews were largely negative to boot, so perhaps it makes sense for them to focus just on the 3DS for the meantime. Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice will be available in-stores and on the 3DS eShop during Holiday 2015. You can check out a trailer for the game below. Are you interested in this new Sonic Boom title?
Jason Clement posted a article in SonyWe're just three and a half weeks away from the release of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time at this point and Sony's already dropped a bombshell for all of the Sly fans out there. Previously marked for MSRP at $59.99, Thieves in Time will now launch at a low, low price of $39.99 for the PS3 version (with a digital download of the Vita version for free), and $29.99 for the Vita version. Why the price drop? Is it a reflection of the quality or length of the game? Or was the move made because Sony has low confidence in the game's ability to sell? Playstation Lifestyle was able to get some answers from Associate Product Marketing Manager of Software Marketing at SCEA Cristian Cardona to clear the confusion on the matter. Cardona acknowledges that the video game market is extremely competitive, so according to her, the price change was made in order to make the purchase a "no-brainer" for people and so that they wouldn't have to think twice about it. When asked if there was any less content than normal or if the game was shorter than usual, Cardona dismissed those concerns by saying that it isn't any less of a Sly experience and that there's plenty of content, adding that "price doesn't always equal quality or content." In the meantime, a demo for the game will be available to Playstation Plus members on January 22nd, with a public version of the demo going live on the 29th. Be sure to check out the new gameplay video below which showcases Sly and his crew pulling off a heist on El Jeffe, the boss you'll encounter in Feudal Japan. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is set to release on February 5th for the PS3 and PS Vita, and will be available as a day 1 digital download. Source: Playstation Blog Via: Playstation Lifestyle
Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsThe Playstation Blog has revealed a new trailer for Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time in which costumes are highlighted this time around. It seems that costumes will play a significant role in the game this time around if Sly and his crew hope to pull off the biggest heists in history. Each costume has its own set of special abilities in order to solve puzzles, reach new areas, and defeat enemies. Thieves In Time's story focuses on Sly's adventure through time in order to prevent the pages of the Thievius Raccoonus from disappearing, so it'll be interesting to see how well the costume mechanic works with the different time periods. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is coming to PS3 and PS Vita on February 5, 2013.
