Behind the Scenes of Iron Man 2

Crimosn Dynamo

SEGA is excited to present the first Behind-the-Scenes video from the blockbuster video game Iron Man 2. This video takes fans deeper into the making of the Xbox360 and the PS3 versions of the game and offers a sneak peek at what it takes to create the most technologically advanced Super Heroes- Iron Man and War Machine, epic enemy characters, devastating destruction and the  cinematic-style fighting mechanics within the game.

Check out this great new video for a taste of what is to come as more of the Iron Man 2 game is revealed.

We’ve also got some new character renders for you. Crimson Dynamo is up above, and General Shatalov (who you met in the previous Enemy Factions trailer) is below the video. Enjoy!

All Forklift, All the Time in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing

Ryo Hazuki

We know our fans love Ryo Hazuki. And we know that you love Ryo in his forklift. If you’ve been thinking that Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing (on Xbox 360) needs more forklift (which is sort of like more cowbell), then today is your lucky day.

Ryo busts out the forklift during his all-star move, but if you’d like him to stay in his forklift, you can make that happen for only 320 Microsoft Points. This DLC is available on the Xbox Marketplace today. Zoom through all the tracks and race to the finish from the comfort of the forklift!

On these high seas, no one can hear you scream.

Today is a big day for us here at SEGA of America – and for aquatic wildlife across the world. Today we announce something that many of us have been waiting patiently for, our eager fins and flippers anxious. Today, we make it official – it’s time to reveal the North American-only exclusive sequel to one of the best-selling SEGA games ever not created: ECCO: WATER WARS 2!

In the next chapter of the blockbuster ECCO: WATER WARS series, Ecco the Dolphin, now a master of time travel and innumerable other highly improbable porpoise plot devices, must lead his fellow Dolphins in a fight against all of humanity – including the elderly.

“You know, my mom told me that dolphins are like… like… some of the smartest creatures in the seas.” said Ecco fan x_X_x_SUPERMEGAECCOFAN1991_x_X_x on the SEGA forums. “Who says Dolphins can’t be smart enough to take human technology, improve it tenfold, and then use it against us in an epic fight for freedom? I know I can’t.”

And we can’t either.

As the first F.P.S. (First Porpoise Shooter) ever on a console, ECCO: WATER WARS 2 sees Ecco trapped by humans and forced to perform tricks on a daily basis for pudgy, cash-bloated tourists and families. When his pod’s turf is infringed upon by lost Russian submarines searching for a legendary signed copy of SEGA BASS FISHING, Ecco has no choice but to break free of his captors, steal their own technology, and hurl those weapons back with him into the seas.

Dive into intense multiplayer action with up to eighteen-and-a-half other dolphins, and fire rockets as a team at unsuspecting fishing vessels and tourist-laden cruise ships. ‘Dolphin Hunting’ takes on a whole new meaning as Ecco and his friends gleefully sink ship after ship into the shining, forceful waters of the deep blue sea.

“This game is totally even better than that one game with a similar name! … Er, well, I forget what the name is.” Commented Gil Rivers, a random person off of the street who was brought in for early focus testing. His completely professional opinion is proof that you not only need this game, but you actually needed it yesterday.

Water you waiting for? Don’t clam up on this summer’s biggest FS blockbuster – E.C.C.O.: WATER WARS 2: So good we didn’t even need a first one. And remember:

In Soviet Russia, Dolphins hunt you.
