New Tournament of Legends Trailer & Screens!

Check out the latest trailer for Tournament of Legends! In it, you’ll see legendary fighters from mythology, battle lairs protected by mythological creatures, and learn more about the weapons and duel systems. You can launch weapon-specific attacks, dodge and charge opponents, throw weapons, combine attacks, and use two-handed weapon combat.

Along with the new trailer, we’ve also released several new screens. I’ve put some below, and you can see the rest on our Flickr set for the game.

On the Block

1. Iron Man 2 Pack – Don Cheadle

A massive Iron Man 2 pack to celebrate the game & movie launch! You’ll get a poster of the game’s front cover, a copy of the game on the platform of your choice (X360, PS3, Wii, DS, or PSP), a code to download the Brady strategy guide for the game, a 1 GB USB drive with Iron Man 2 game assets (totally reusable for other stuff, too!), a code for the suitcase suit to use in-game, a special edition commemorative film cell from the movie, and some Iron Man 2 game art signed by Don Cheadle, who is in the movie and voices his movie character in the game. (Whew!)

Congrats to the winner, @sajak551!

2. Iron Man 2 Pack – Samuel L. Jackson

The same Iron Man 2 pack as above, but with art signed by Samuel L. Jackson instead of Don Cheadle.

Congrats to our winner @big_eyebrows!

3. Valkyria Chronicles Pack

1 copy of Valkyria Chronicles on PS3, a Brady strategy guide for the game, and your choice of figurine.

Congrats to our winner @spymasterralph!

4. Samba de Amigo Pack

Get a sealed (!) copy of Samba de Amigo for the Dreamcast, packaged with a small maraca. With it, you also get a Samba t-shirt, size L.

Congrats to our winner @donnykarabotsos!

5.  Napoleon Total War Pack

1 copy of Napoleon: Total War for PC and a Napoleon t-shirt (size S, M, or L — winner’s choice).

6. Sonic Pack

You’ll get the Sonic picture pop (made with the magic of Chocolography technology), the retro Sonic pillowcase, the Sonic magnets, and the SEGA taste-tested & approved Sonic Speed energy drink.

How it Works

1. You must be following us on Twitter to be eligible. (If you don’t have a Twitter account, you can create one by going to and click the green “get started — join!” button in the center of the page.)
2. At random times on Friday, we will announce the prize we are giving away, and what number of response you need to be to win. Send us a direct message (DM) via Twitter and be that number to win the prize. (@ replies do not count as entries!)
3. All followers are eligible to win all prizes, unless a restriction is noted. Restrictions are usually due to the prize being region-locked. For example, US games that won’t work on UK gaming systems. There may also be age restrictions due to the rating of the game.
4. We will announce the winner on our Twitter feed once eligibility is confirmed.

Make Sure We’re Following You on Twitter

If you are currently following us on Twitter, please be sure that we are following you as well. You can do this by making sure that SEGA is in your “followers” list, or by going to DoesFollow and typing SEGA in the first blank, your Twitter username in the second, and pressing the “check” button. You can reverse this to be sure that you are following us. If you are following us, but we’re not following you, please send a message to @SEGA and we will follow you. This is important, because only people we follow can send us direct messages (DMs), and DMs are the only way to enter the giveaways.

How to Send Direct Messages on Twitter

There are a few ways to send us a Direct Message on Twitter. The easiest way is to go to our Twitter page and select “message” under the “Actions” heading in the side bar. If you do not see “message”, this means that we are not following you. Please send a message to @sega to let us know, and we will follow you. When you click “message” you will be taken to a window where you can type a message and press send.

You may also select the “direct messages” tab from your Twitter homepage, and select SEGA from the drop-down menu at the top of the page. Again, if you don’t see our name there, it’s probably because we’re not following you. Let us know, and we’ll follow you.

There are also many Twitter clients that you can use instead of using the website. These include TweetDeck, Twitteriffic, Tweetie, and Twhirl. Each of these programs works differently, so you’ll want to figure out how to send a direct message on the program you use. If you want to send us a test message, we’ll let you know if we received it or not.
