is committed to the idea that adventure games are not dead and has allowed Monkey Island
creator Ron Gilbert
to beaver away in the background on The Cave
has supported this quirky idea and will be publishing it on PC early next year. Unsurprisingly, the game revolves around adventuring through caves using a variety of colourful characters to solve puzzles. It seems to have that Gilbert vibe from it, and is certainly one to keep an eye out for.
SEGA also released a launch trailer for Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown
, which is now available on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The trailer shows the cast of characters and breaks down some of the elements included in the game including aspects of the online play, the training arena and character customisation options.
Classic arcade fans should be happy to hear that Jet Set Radio
is set to return to our consoles. The trailer was released shortly before E3, but it’s a good opportunity to catch up now if you missed out on it amongst the anticipation that was building up at the end of last week. Jet Set Radio will be released on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and digitally on PC this summer.
Vengeance is the name of the game…Well, actually, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit
is the name of the game, but vengeance is the central theme. After a scandal breaks, one rabbit goes on a quest for revenge in a game that boasts plenty of guns, gore and graphic deaths. It will be released on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and on PC some time this year.
SEGA will be releasing a Super Monkey Ball title for the PlayStation Vita. Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz
will feature more than 100 levels, eight minigames and a custom level builder that turns photos of real images into Monkey Ball-able objects. At its core, it is still a Super Monkey Ball game, so will feel familiar to returning fans. The game will be released on October 23rd in North America and Europe.
If scares are your thing, then SEGA has Aliens: Colonial Marines
for you. Those aliens are looking like nasty critters…and you’re stuck with them! Aliens: Colonial Marines will also support up to four player co-op with distinct roles for each player. The game is set for release in February 2013.
