New Sega Genesis/Mega Drive Game on Kickstarter

SegaColorVia Kickstarter: Kromasphere: YAGAC MD! It's a game mostly in black and white, in which you bring color to the world. Previously, the creator made Family Picross for NES/Famicom last year.

There's no pitch video, but the game is seemingly done. The snap box is for pre-orders only, which is a pretty good incentive to pledge early were you so inclined.

Axiom Verge Disc Still Coming to Wii U

Wii UAxiom VergeVia GamesIndustry.biz: The high cost of a Wii U retail release [Axiom Verge revisited]. Apparently a lot of stuff has gotten in the way of coming out on disc, despite the game having been released digitally in 2016. It's also been released on most other current platforms, I myself enjoyed playing through it on Switch.

It's worth reading to see the hassles involved in getting games out - particularly when bills are being paid.

There are other similar items in the Kaiju Big Battel Store too.

ICYMI: Sega-Compatible Mega SG Includes Unreleased Genesis Game

SegaHard, Ultra, CoreVia Analogue: Mega Sg now includes Ultracore game. Previously known as Hardcore, this unreleased run-and-gun game is built in to Analogue's new 16bit-compatible consoles. It includes the means to use Master System and Genesis/Mega Drive games in the box, and supposedly can connect to your Sega CD too. A Game Gear adapter is slated for future release. Also note - no controller is included, so if you didn't buy one at Toys R Us in 1991 you may need to get a new wireless model or hit some garage sales.

DICE's long-lost Ultracore seems similar to the Super NT pack-in Turrican, and it sounds like the kind of chiptune thing you've probably heard the kids making these days. It sounds very 16-bit and looks pretty nice! Interestingly, the game also announced it would be on PS4 and PS Vita in 2019 - complete with a physical media release.

I ordered and finally received the Analogue Super NT last week and was impressed. I ran out to buy a few more used Super NES and GameBoy games to play on it, and then ordered a Mega SG. Their reputation is stellar, so I hope Sega gets just as good as Nintendo. (And now I wonder if we'll complete the trifecta with a PC Engine or TurboGrafx-16. Probably not.) I'm slowly plodding my way through Super Star Wars again right now, and it is exactly as good as I remember! But I digress. Something something Sega.
