This teaser from SEGA seems to announce the return of Castle Of Illusion

11 Apr

castle of illusion sega disney mickey mouse

 

Earlier today SEGA of America uploaded a mysterious new video on its YouTube channel. The silent b/w teaser really looks like some sort of Castle Of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse remake/sequel.

As you can see, the trailer has no description and the title just says “Summer 2013”, but the style is unmistakeble and this is definitely something about the Genesis’ evergreen Castle Of Illusion from 1990. We are quite sure about this because of the 1990 – 2013 copyright at the end of the video, but also because the game was already added to the brazilian ratings bureau and someone an NeoGAF spotted a box art from the xbox.com HTML code.

So it looks like another Disney’s classic game will see the HD light this year (after the great announcement of Duck Tales Remastered by Capcom last month). Seems like Disney has something to be forgiven for…isn’t it?

Hyperkin to reveal new RetroN 4 system

6 Mar

RetroN 3 RetroN 4

Hyperkin is an American company specialized in video games accessories and peripherals. They handle the current generation, but they’re quite famous on the net for making and selling accessories and replacements for all the major retro consoles.

They also make new consoles capable to play retro games, like the SupaBoy or the RetroN. Yep, it’s not like playing your Contra III on the original SNES, but it could be an option for those who don’t own a retro system.

Anyway, yesterday Hyperkin revealed its “new” console system, the RetroN 4, that is simply a new model of the RetroN 3 (big picture above), but capable of play NES, SNES, Genesis (or Mega Drive) and GBA cartridges all in one and with an HDMI output. It sounds like  very ambitious piece of hardware, and we can’t wait to take a further look at the console.

In the meanwhile these are the specs from the press release:

RetroN 4 Points of Interest:
·         2 Original Controller Ports for Each Platform (6 Total)
·         Wireless Bluetooth Controller
·         4 Cartridge Ports for NES, SNES, Genesis and GBA cartridges
·         HDMI Output with Digital Signal Conversion
·         “Perdana” Digital User Interface
·         PAL and NTSC compatible

Hyperkin will be unveiling the RetroN 4, at this year’s Midwest Gaming Classic at the Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel in Brookfield, Wisconsin, on Saturday, March 23, 2013 at 11:00 AM CST. Stay tuned.

SEGA Dreamcast & SEGA Mega Drive bags

1 Feb

Everyone loves SEGA (apart for not making Shenmue 3) and everyone have loved its consoles. Especially if we are talking about Mega Drive (or Genesis if you live in the US) and Dreamcast. So if you agree with this, you’ll probably love these two officially licensed bags from Insert Coin Clothing.

They’re pretty amazing, aren’t they? They’re made out of leather (I think not real one) and really well printed. And they can be all yours for just £30/£35 (or €39/€45$42/$49 if you prefer). Well, it’s not a bargain, but still, they’re awesome and perfect for revive those beautiful SEGA consoles.

Insert Coin is not paying us for advertise its products, we genuinely love this stuff (we got the Dreamcast one).

If you like them as we do, and you think it’s time to get your geek on (uh, this motto really sucks) you can buy them here (DC) and here (MD) as they ship worldwide.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to SEGA licensing, the Dreamcast logo/bag colour received will be based upon your delivery address: Blue – PAL Regions, Red – North America, Orange – Japan. (and this kinda sucks, we know…)
