47w ago - Sega of America Community Manager Kellie Parker has officially announced today that Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is coming to the PS3 and PS Vita platforms.
To quote: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a thrilling new racing experience coming to PS3 and PS Vita, featuring Sonic the Hedgehog and a fantastic cast of SEGA All-Stars.
This iconic cast will be competing across land, air and water in vehicles that fully transform from cars, to planes to boats.
Following on from the huge success of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, the characters now have their own unique, transforming vehicles designed to take advantage of the varying terrain.
The lineup on the Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed grid sees SEGA favorites - including Sonic the Hedgehog, Dr. Eggman and AiAi - return to battle against newcomers, including Gilius Thunderhead of Golden Axe and Vyse of Skies of Arcadia.
Many attendees got to play the game for the first time at E3, and chose from one of three available levels: Dragon Canyon (based on Panzer Dragoon), Temple Trouble (based on Super Monkey Ball), and Adder's Lair (based on Golden Axe). In addition to this new track, we also announced that Joe Mushashi from Shinobi will be a playable character in the game.
50w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has officially revealed Assassin's Creed III Liberation for PS Vita including some video footage fresh from E3 2012 today!
To quote: Bet you didn't see this one coming, eh PlayStation Assassins? It's with a great deal of pleasure and a substantial amount of pride that we announce Assassin's Creed III Liberation for PS Vita!
Liberation introduces an all-new assassin named Aveline, and takes place in the rich, varied and vibrant environments of 18th-century Louisiana.
For a better idea of how Aveline operates in the more populated urban areas, and to see just a tiny tease of Aveline's stealthy activities in the bayou, you should totally check out the announcement trailer.
During 1765, Aveline stands directly in the path of Spanish forces seeking to overrun and take Louisiana while the rest of the coastal colonies are occupied with the American Revolution.
Aveline is a uniquely effective assassin, employing tactics from her mixed French and African lineage and using weapons like the machete, poison-dart blowpipe and dueling pistols.
You should take a moment to better acquaint yourself with Aveline by watching this video:
50w ago - With E3 2012 officially kicking off tomorrow, Mathew Kumar of the Sound Shapes Team has just confirmed that the video game will be heading to both PS3 and PS Vita alongside a video of Jim Guthrie's cat below!
To quote: Look, E3 is here, and we know there's all kinds of hot news coming at you from everywhere.
So over here at Queasy HQ, we've decided to kick things off a little early with pretty much the biggest announcement we're allowed to give you right now: Sound Shapes is coming to PSN on August 7th. That's... like... a few weeks away!
Are you breathing into a paper bag right now to avoid hyperventilating? We are, which is making it kind of hard to type. And if you're not, you should be, because we're also taking this opportunity to sneak out the fact that Sound Shapes is, day-and-date, also coming to PS3.
Yes. That thing you have under your TV, or maybe beside it (or possibly on top, but that sounds kind of dangerous, man!).
And no, we haven't been looking in your windows; we've been too busy making Sound Shapes and pricing it at $14.99 for BOTH VERSIONS. Buy it on PS Vita or PS3, and enjoy it on either system! We know. We're freaking out too!
Through the magic of crossplay, you'll be able to share content between the two systems without...
50w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has announced today that Inafune's next game Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita is coming to North America and Europe.
To quote: Hello everyone! I've got some great news. A few weeks ago, Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita was announced in Japan and I'm sure many of you are wondering about the status of a North American and European release.
I'm happy to announce that Soul Sacrifice is coming to North America and Europe! The legendary Keiji Inafune of Comcept is leading this project with MarvelousAQL, with Yasunori Mitsuda and Wataru Hokoyama working on the music and soundtrack.
The theme of this game is "reality blended experience." You may wonder what that means, exactly. In celebration of the announcement in North America, Inafune-san has kindly sent us a description along with his comments.
What I wanted to illustrate in this game was a "reality blended into a fantasy world." The word "fantasy" normally points to a story that is fictitious; however, with Soul Sacrifice I wanted to illustrate a "reality" within a fantasy that wasn't sugar-coated. It's not about focusing on the strange, but to flip the commonly held concept of what a fantasy theme should be with the concept...
