Sega will be announcing three new games at the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) taking place at Los Angeles’ Los Angeles Convention Center on June 10-12, 2014. Highly anticipated titles Ailen: Isolation and two new titles under the Sonic Boom umbrella will join the next game featuring virtual singing superstar Hatsune Miku in their South Hall booth.
Alien: Isolation is a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Back to the core essence of Ridley Scott’s haunted house in space — you play as Amanda Ripley, daughter of Ellen Ripley, fighting overwhelming odds simply to survive. With the station in lockdown and a vicious creature on the loose, getting around requires cunning tactics, stealth and a great deal of courage. SEGA and Creative Assembly will be presenting a new game mode, playable for the first time on the show floor. Alien: Isolation will be released on October 7th for Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
SEGA will unleash an all-new Sonic the Hedgehog at E3 2014 with the debut of playable versions of two new Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The new games Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for the Wii U, developed by Los Angeles-based Big Red Button, and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for the Nintendo 3DS, from San Francisco-based Sanzaru Games, will introduce new gameplay and a new villain named Lyric.
In both games, Sonic and friends — Tails, Knuckles, Amy and newcomer Sticks will work together as they face Lyric, a giant, monstrous snake-like creature from an ancient race. With a strong emphasis on collaboration, the roles of Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Sticks, will be elevated in gameplay that capitalizes on each character’s unique abilities and talents. The goal is to prevent Lyric from powering his army of robots and carrying out his plan to destroy the world.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd
Also represented on SEGA’s booth is the world’s most popular virtual singer Hatsune Miku, returning in rhythm game Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd, developed by Crypton Future Media. The game features twenty classic songs from the previously Japan-only PSP games making their first debut in the West and twenty brand new songs to the Project DIVA series. In addition to the new songs, the game will feature updated gameplay mechanics and controls, over 80 brand new and remade fan favorite modules, Cross-Save compatibility, Makerless AR Mode and a revamped edit mode ranking system that showcases the most popular user generated content to provide gamers the best game experience on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems. The game will be available for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in the fall.
