SEGA and Avalanche Studios Announce Renegade Ops!

Renegade Ops

LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (30 March , 2011) — SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. are excited to announce Renegade Ops™, a new digitally downloadable military co-op shooter. Created by Swedish developer Avalanche Studios, Renegade Ops will unleash unprecedented mayhem and exhilarating destruction via Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®Network and PC Digital Download in 2011.

Renegade Ops puts players in a mobile commando unit sent behind enemy lines to defeat Inferno, a madman intent on global domination. Defeat enemies across a range of stunning environments using a wide variety of vehicles, from dispersing electromagnetic shock waves to the deployment of a huge Gatling gun armed to the teeth. Players have the choice to fight alone in single player mode, team up offline with two-player split screen or join the dynamic 4-player online co-op experience. Blast your way through enemy lines by working together, or compete for achievements as you and your friends aim to top the online leader boards.

“Renegade Ops is Avalanche Studios’ first strategic step into the world of digitally downloaded games, but certainly not the last. With a strong foundation in our unique technology, we can allow our teams working on digitally downloaded games to unleash their creativity,” commented Linus Blomberg Executive Producer at Avalanche Studios.

“A number of developers in the studio wanted to try developing a smaller digital project, so we gathered a team, built a new IP and SEGA gave us the opportunity to carry this out. The IP is all about driving or flying around blowing stuff up while playing with your friends and that to us, is a dream-project,” comments Andreas Thorsén, Senior Producer.

Unleash your full arsenal of weapons and destroy anything that stands in your path as you battle to protect the free world in any way possible. Madman Inferno, the commander of a sinister terrorist organisation, has detonated a devastating bomb to demonstrate the power of his new deadly weapon. Furious at the world’s leaders decision not to fight against Inferno, General Bryant has recruited a crack team of military specialists, known as the Renegade Ops, from around the globe to wage war against Inferno’s promise of world domination.

“Renegade Ops is SEGA’s first new IP on the digital space and we are thrilled with the remarkable visual look and extensive features that the game has to offer. It has been a great opportunity to work with a team as successful as Avalanche Studios,”commented Haruki Satomi, Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA. “Playing Renegade Ops with friends will be a hugely enjoyable experience which will stand out above other multiplayer online co-op games”

 
   
   
 

MLB Manager Online: First Look

Perhaps you’ve already had a chance to take part in either our closed beta or the current open beta, but if you haven’t, I’m very excited to get to share with you an upcoming game from SEGA: MLB Manager Online, debuting this March 31st — that’s just a few days away!

MLB Manager Online is a browser based Manager/Sim game, fully licensed with all real teams & players from Major League Baseball. Think of it as a cross between a fantasy league and a managerial simulation (like Football Manager), only with the ability to train and improve your players.

MLB Manager Online

The core of the game is built around drawing player cards and setting your team lineup and pitching rotation. Once you do that, you can get as in-depth as you want. SEGA had an internal beta test months ago and since then I’ve seen players of all levels get involved, from casual to hard-core.

Create and fine-tune your team in any number of ways: You can emphasize a strong defense and speedy base swappers, or you can build an offensive powerhouse.  Build a strong starting rotation or pour your resources into a deep bullpen and trade for the players you need to fill in the gaps — with every available player and a host of stats, the game is designed to let you find multiple ways to win.

Certainly a casual baseball or sports fan can plug themselves in and wield a team. I would not describe myself as a “casual fan,” however, and for me, baseball has that easy romantic feeling that leads to long descriptions of the smell of grass in Spring and the sounds of a game over the radio. That same easy romantic feeling has also led me to exploring this game since its early beta stages, and I’m happy to give you a preview of how the game works and what you have to look forward to:

  • Games are played live. You’re the manager and you’re in charge, and there’s a “Spring Training” period after you join to ease you in, and once you start it’s just like playing fantasy sports, or the real life MLB – set your rosters and get your players ready. Games are played every hour on the hour, starting at 5:00 AM (West Coast time) and continuing until 7:00 PM that evening. New “days” start at 8:00 PM and that’s when you get access to new packs of player cards (to add to your roster).

MLB Manager Online

  • You’ll play 15 games a day and the season lasts 10 days, plus a tournament from the top teams in all leagues. There’s lots of other events and mini-tournaments in the game, and if you don’t do well one season you can always gear up for the next. Each “season” you can advance to different levels of play, where you have more access to better players, but where the competition will be fiercer as well.
  • There are a lot of ways to improve your team. The main way is drawing special cards which allow you to improve player stats: Increase selective player abilities to help their defense, contact, power, speed, throwing, or even ability to perform in the clutch. Improve the raw power of your pitcher’s slider, amp up their fastball, or add to their breaking ball ability to make a decent curveball into a devastating one. Take your starting rotation and add to their stamina, then set your managerial strategy to keep in your starters for longer and wear down your opponents — pretty much any strategy you want to try will be available.

MLB Manager Online

  • Chemistry matters! The game uses a number of factors to reward you for building a quality team. You want your best players on the field, but you want to spend time making sure they compliment each other and fit well with your overall team strategy. A lot of this you don’t have to pay attention to too much, especially early on, but if you feel like spending more time with the game, this is one of the deeper areas to explore. The underlying point is, a lot of things can lead to a successful team, and the game absolutely rewards those who play around.

This game is totally 100% free to play, and you play in your web browser. It will be supported by Micro-transactions (small individual payments made for specific services), and while I can’t discuss details of these until they’re finalized and in-game, I’m very happy with what I’ve seen so far. No one wants a game to be unbalanced so that whoever spends the most will always win – what fun is that? You can compete in this game if you’re smart (and a little lucky), and if you’re willing to spend a little bit of coin, what you get is a chance to improve your team. The best part about this? It feels like you still have to be a skillful manager to use what you buy in a strategic way; you can’t just dump money into this game and have it reward you.

MLB Manager Online

Games themselves can be fast-simmed – at a few seconds per game – so if you missed a few days of action you can catch up. You can also, of course, watch each game unfold, live, in a flash-animated simulation that you can fast-forward or rewind through at will. Seeing your hand-picked players mount a stirring comeback or hold a lead in a tight game is one of the most rewarding parts of playing.

This brand new game will be available on Opening Day for this year’s 2011 Season — the same day my beloved San Francisco Giants begin the defense of their World Series, you will have the opportunity to join the game and create your team. Look for more information on this game soon, and get ready to play ball!

10 Years of Super Monkey Ball – A Retrospective – Part 4

Aha! Part 4! We’ve arrived at the last in our series of Super Monkey Ball blogs and today we’re featuring a ton of info on … Super Monkey Ball 3D for the Nintendo 3DS! Launching this Sunday, Super Monkey Ball 3D is the latest and greatest version of the series! A brief description of Super Monkey Ball on 3DS is that the game is effectively 3 games in one. The original game is still intact and the mini-games are expanded upon to add more replay value.

Super Monkey Ball Original Mode

Fans of the series will be happy to hear that the original Super Monkey Ball mode is intact and available to pick up right off when you start playing! Right from the start you can pick up and play from the 4 available worlds and jump into the action, new players will want to start with world one to get their bearings, and the hardcore can jump into later levels to get their fix too. Playing all levels unlocks more maps to play on and the challenge picks up as you get higher.

Super Monkey Ball 3D

To add to the overall replay value of the mode, hidden within each level are special bananas to find that will start off easy to grab and later become more challenging. Finding more of the special bananas will add to the unlockable characters in the other Monkey Ball modes! There are other special collectibles to find by performing other special actions throughout the game as well, hidden of course, so keep an eye out of what you can do to unlock these along the way!

Monkey Race

Super Monkey Ball 3D

As noted, this version of Super Monkey Ball offers two mini-games that are a bit deeper than previous game offerings. With Monkey Race you have a full fledged cart racer, complete with new characters and cars to unlock. The game itself is quite fun and often surprised a lot of the press we’ve shown the game too, especially when played in multiplayer as the heated talk picks up and the game gets serious! Best advice to win? Use the Spin & Dash ability to quickly move about through the level and bypass obstacles along the way. Also, don’t be fooled by the first level, which is as tame as it comes – the game quickly ramps up to offer some obstacles that are often as hard as the opponent’s your playing against. Great fun!

Monkey Fight

Who doesn’t love a good Monkey Fight? In this mode, the game is a bit different than that of previous Monkey Fight mini-games, instead of a 3D top down (ish) offering, the game is played across a 2D environment with a goal of tracking and holding as many Bananas as possible. The characters all play differently, each offering a playstyle and Monkey Fighting style that’s fitting for them. Baby, for example, stays true to his Futuristic roots by locking into a cyborg body and menacing opponents with speed and agility. Doctor, my favorite character, has a double jump that’s leaps and bounds better than the competition (aha! a pun!). As with Monkey Race, characters can be unlocked through a variety of means, both from the Single player game and competing in the mode itself.

Monkey Fight!

The Golden Barrel! I nearly forgot about this special item in the game – by finding and gaining this power up – your Monkey fighter will gain all new strength and abilities! My favorite, Doctor, unleashes an electrical attack in a wide range blasting the bananas out of nearby monkeys. To be the best Monkey, you’ll need to use all your skills to survive! Today we’re happy to unveil the newest trailer for Super Monkey Ball to help illustrate this mode – Monkey Fight!

10 Years of Super Monkey Ball – A Retrospective – Part 3

Continuing in our series on the Super Monkey Ball franchise, today we’re going to drift a bit beyond the norm and then dive in the Wii versions of the title. Having a chance to write about these games has sparked a bit of nostalgia in me, because it’s kind of crazy that it’s been ten years since this game launched. This sentiment is echoed across our Facebook and Twitter as the updates go out. Yes, it’s been ten years – where did the time go? I still remember watching friends play these games in our QA group here at Sega and honestly that feels like a lifetime ago – so much has changed in my life and it’s fun to drift back and recall these games. Heh, enough of that then, let’s pick up where we left off yesterday… I believe I skipped and omitted a few games to get into the iPhone stuff I adore so much!

Super Monkey Ball Adventure

Super Monkey Ball Adventure

This is the break from the norm I was talking about, and it’s a break for a two reasons that I can think off (if more, fill me in from the comments below!). For starters the Monkey Ball series took a bit of a change in direction with Adventure, making it … well, and Adventure game! Ok, so I guess that’s not a huge surprise, what is interesting is the shift in development to the Traveller’s Tales team away from the Japanese developers. The result was interesting, to say the least and not as well regarded as the other titles. Why mention it? It is a part of the Monkey Ball series, even if it does deviate a bit from the format. Even being an adventure style game, it did contain some of the original modes, including challenge stages and multiplayer games.

Super Monkey Ball AdventureSuper Monkey Ball Adventure

Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz

Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz
The first Nintendo Wii offering for the Super Monkey Ball series and a launch title at that, Banana Blitz stayed true to the series roots but added a few changes to the gameplay and a host of new characters. Gameplay wise, the game was the first to implement the ‘Jump’ action! This gave the Monkeys a new skill to combat the ever changing environment and tackle new bosses – yes bosses! The challenges of the levels also had a smoother learning curve, which definitely aided in bringing in new people to the series. New characters were also introduced that appear through a new story arc, involving evil Pirate Monkeys – an idea, I’m still quite fond of.

Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz

Banana Blitz also launched with the largest collection of mini-games in the series thus far, with a total of 50 different games! Old classics returned with Monkey Target and Monkey Bowling as well as new challenges with Asteroid Crash and Banana Thief. Ok, I just wanted to say Banana Thief because it makes me chuckle. Having 50 games definitely upped the ante a bit for offering some fun among friends with the Monkey Ball series and no title to date has been able to offer as many games in a single title release.

Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll

YouTube Preview Image
By now, as either a fan of the series or a reader of the blog, you can see the Super Monkey Ball team likes to develop around new technology. With Step & Roll the new challenge was to work with the Wii Balance Board and craft a Monkey Ball experience to match. Also playing off the fitness angle of the Balance Board, players could burn Monkey Calories (not described was the ratio between normal calories and Monkey Calories – the assumption was that they were close enough to not matter)! Additional fun involved a coop mode where players could help their Monkey companions by blasting away obstacles along the way.

See you tomorrow for our last blog on Super Monkey Ball, focusing on the 3DS version! Woo!

 
   
   
 

eBay Auction for Japan Relief – Part 2

DCredcrossThanks to Raki from SegaShiro for making this sweet Red Cross/Dreamcast/Play for Japan graphic for us!

Earlier this week, we listed several items on eBay for auction, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Red Cross for relief efforts in Japan. The response was overwhelming — we received several thousand dollars in bids, with many items going for $300 or more. Thank you to all who bid, and will continue to bid, on these items.

We sent an email to all employees at SEGA of America to let them know what we were doing, and many people wanted to help out. Yesterday was a parade of people coming by our desks with items to donate for auction. Many of these items are from their own personal collections, and are things that they’ve held on to for years. We also got some people internally to sign items in the hopes that it would increase the auction value. Everyone at SEGA has pitched in to help with this, and we just can’t thank them enough. We’re honored to work with amazing people here at SEGA.

One of the things we heard from a few folks after our first set of items went up was that they would like to bid and contribute, but they didn’t have enough money to bid on items that were listed. Because of that, we’ve listed some smaller/less rare items in the hopes that everyone will be able to find something that fits their interest and budget. Even if you can’t or choose not to bid, we need your support! Please help us in spreading the word to friends, family, and fellow gamers about our auction.

Not all of our items are on the smaller scale, though. We’ve got several really valuable items, including a prize so awesome that I still have a hard time believing that we’re giving it up. You can see all of our new prizes in the photos and item descriptions, along with links to bid, below.

We will be listing even more items in the coming days, so keep watching for new stuff! And thanks again for all your support. SEGA fans ROCK!!

Official Bayonetta Costume

Bayonetta on the Show Floor

Seriously? Seriously.

We are incredibly excited to offer this for auction. If you were at E3, Comic Con, or saw coverage of events where we had our live Bayonetta model, then you’ve seen this item in action. This is the completely original, totally custom-made, incredibly accurate and detailed Bayonetta costume. It’s truly the only one like it in the world.

The costume does include the wig (and foam head) with ribbons and chains, the bodysuit, the gloves and the boots. This costume does NOT include the glasses or the guns. The bodysuit has all of the details you’d expect from an accurate representation of the character, including the round chest piece, chains on the front and back of the costume, and more.

Because it was custom-made to fit our Bayonetta model, we don’t have a numbered size for it. However, you can examine the photos above and below to see the size of the bodysuit. The boots are a size 10. The wig should fit most heads. The gloves should fit most hands/arms.

Sonic the Hedgehog 15th Anniversary Figurine

Sonic the Hedgehog 15th Anniversary Figurine

What you’re looking at was part of a figurine series created to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 15th Anniversary back in 2006. This figurine is about 4 inches tall, and is of excellent quality and detail. It was owned by a SEGA of America employee, who took care of it at his desk, and is now donating it to help with Japan relief efforts.

The figurine features modern-style Sonic and comes with a black base that reads “SONIC” on the front. On the top of the base, just in front of where Sonic stands, is the official Sonic 15th Anniversary Logo, marking the piece as part of the 15th Anniversary Collector’s series. Sonic’s arms are slightly bendable, but this figurine is meant for collectors, and is not recommended for playing with, chewing on, or using to save the world. (That said, sometimes Eggman just needs a good beating!)

As part of the 15th Anniversary set, this figurine is also unique from the Sonic Statue, which is larger and limited to a run of 2500. (We also have one of these up for charity auction – check our full listing page for info!)

Signed Vanquish Art & Statue

Vanquish Statue and Signed Art

What you’re looking at is a signed glossy art piece from the PlatinumGames team featuring Inaba-san and Mikami-san signatures and a very special and highly detailed statue from the Vanquish Videogame. The signed art images were hand signed by the development team in preparation for the game release. The Vanquish statue was part of the original pre-order offering in Europe. This particular statue was donated by our marketing director and has been unopened, still in its original packaging!

Super Monkey Ball AiAi T-Shirt

Super Monkey Ball AiAi Shirt

Super Monkey Ball AiAi Shirt

This is one of a few hundred AiAi shirts made for Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll. It is a replica of the shirt that AiAi wears in the game. These were given out to Nintendo World Store employees that worked our launch event at the store, as well as internally to SEGA employees. It is a size Medium.

Bid on this item!

Project Needlemouse “Team Needlemouse” T-Shirt

Project Needlemouse "Team" T-shirt
This is a limited edition, super-rare Project Needlemouse t-shirt that was created for SEGA employees working on Sonic 4. If there was one T-shirt that Sonic fans are constantly asking about, this is it – and for good reason, too: only about 250 of these T-shirts exist in the entire world, and most of them were given out at Comic-con and internally to the teams working on Sonic the Hedgehog 4, back when the game was code-named Project Needlemouse.

This is one of our last remaining new Project Needlemouse t-shirts here at SEGA, and we think that there are few better reasons to donate it than to help Japan in this time of need.

The shirt features the Sonic Silhouette and reads ‘PROJECT NEEDLEMOUSE’ above it on the front. The left sleeve features the SEGA logo, and the right sleeve reads “TEAM NEEDLEMOUSE – 9.09.09″. This date is a reference to two things: the first reveal of Project Needlemouse, and also the original launch of the Dreamcast, which launched on a similar 9.9.99 date.

The shirt is size XL.

Ryo Hazuki Figurine – in Forklift!

Ryo Hazuki Figurine

Attention Shenmue fans! This figurine of Ryo Hazuki in his forklift is one of only 1,000 in the world! They were made to promote Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, which features Ryo and his forklift as his All-Star move. Now is your chance to own one! The figure is 5 inches tall.

Bid on this item!

MADWORLD T-Shirt

Original MADWORLD T-Shirt

What you’re seeing here is one of the first edition T-shirts in SEGA’s popular MADWORLD series. While later versions of this popular shirt would show up at NYCC, this is a new, unworn, original T-shirt, given only to select press and SEGA employees back when SEGA and Platinum Games first announced their major partnership in San Francisco. It is a size Medium

The shirt is a play on the quirky nature of MADWORLD – and the fact that you can stab people in the head with CAUTION signs. Beyond being part of the super-limited first run, you can also tell this shirt apart from the later variants by the sheer size of the “CAUTION” sign on the front, which is huge and bright on the first edition set.

If you’re a fan of MADWORLD or Platinum Games, this is your one – and perhaps only – chance to score one of the first edition promo items from one of the most graphic games on the Wii!

SEGA Director’s Notebook

SEGA Director's Notebook

SEGA Director's Notebook - Inside

Yes, you read that correctly. This is a special, SEGA Branded, high-class professional-style notebook. Until today, it was owned and used by SEGA of America’s own Marketing Director. Now, you too can feel the awe-inspiring power of a SEGA director by possessing their book! (… or something like that.)

The notebook itself is a black and a light, iridescent blue, and features a zipper protecting the paper and pockets inside – and this thing has a lot of pockets. It’s perfect for jotting down notes about the next upcoming SEGA game, how awesome the SEGA of America Community Team is, or how you’re totally planning to give them a raise in the next fiscal year. (Because, you know, that’s what Directors do!)

Rumor has it this Notebook was even down through generations from each SEGA Director to the next over the last two-hundred and fifty years. Other rumors state that it holds the power to create world peace, and that using this notebook while wearing a “three wolves howling at the moon” shirt will amplify your natural Director powers, instantly transforming you into a qualified, bona fide leader. Please note that we have not tested either of these rumors to confirm their validity.

In short, it’s a sweet, classy, SEGA branded Notebook, once owned by our Marketing Director.

Details about the Notebook:

* Owned and used by a SEGA America Marketing Director
* Will make you feel just like a real SEGA Director!*
* Use this Notebook while wearing a “three wolves howling at the moon” shirt to amplify natural leadership powers!

*: Effectiveness at transforming regular people into SEGA Directors has not yet been fully tested. There’s a slight chance you might feel just like a normal person holding a very, very special Notebook.

SEGA Cards, Dreamcast Postcards, and SEGA Pen

Holiday Cards, Postcards, and SEGA Pen

This set includes two SEGA holiday cards that were sent to friends, partners, and business associates at the end of the year. One features Sonic the Hedgehog on a snowboard, and the other features Bayonetta, AiAi, Sonic, and the Alien from AVP – all kickin’ it by the fire in holiday sweaters (of frankly questionable taste).

This set also includes 6 Dreamcast-era postcard – 3 of each style. The first features Seaman and the quote “Get a life, fruitcake.” That lovely holiday sentiment is followed up by a lady in her recliner, speaking to Seaman on her Dreamcast microphone.

You’ll need something to write on all this paper with, so we’ve included a SEGA pen.

The Epic Soniclock!

The Soniclock

***Own the most epic, rare Sonic Clock in the history of the world!***

You probably thought we were joking about that whole “Most epic Sonic Clock in the whole world” part, right? To understand the value of this masterpiece, one first needs to know its history…

This clock was originally given out for free to a SEGA event attendee last year. Apparently that person wasn’t a huge fan of Sonic, and in a gesture that was probably meant to insult us, he destroyed part of the clock and then put it up on Ebay. The rest of the Sonic community was appalled, until…

One of the other attendees from that same event bid on the clock – and won it. And then the story got 10x better: The winner wrote around the edges of the clock, in a personalized message to SEGA and our Sonic 4 Brand Manager Ken: “The Sonic(lock) Cycle as you truly imagined it!”

For Christmas that year, we here at SEGA received a package – and within it, we got our clock back. You can check out the full blog detailing the awesome return here: http://bit.ly/h9rXDN

Now, we have decided to end (or continue?) this story where it began: Ebay. We’ve upgraded the clock, adding a new “Biker-Balough” picture to the 12:00 spot, and have repaired the rest of it through large amounts of super glue and excessive strips of tape. The Soniclock has been upgraded to a new level, and by bidding on this piece of SEGA Community history, you can also help those in need in Japan!

Details about the Soniclock:

* Features Ken “Biker” Balough at 12:00!
* Signed by Ken Balough on the side. Reads: “It’s Biker Balough O-clock! -Ken”
* Also signed by Community member Skyler, who originally saved the clock here on Ebay.

10 Years of Super Monkey Ball – A Retrospective – Part 2

A decade of Super Monkey Ball, day two! All week long we’re taking a look at the past ten years of the Super Monkey Ball franchise, showing off a bit of nostalgia for those who remember the titles of the past and bringing in some new fans who might have missed out. Looking forward to your feedback as always, now let’s get back on track …

Super Monkey Ball Jr – Game Boy Advance (2003)

Super Monkey Ball Jr.

Continuing in our look across the Monkey Ball series, we’re going to pick up right where we left off yesterday and roll directly into Super Monkey Ball Jr for the Game Boy Advance! Thinking back this title was a favorite of mine, particularly because of the portability and being a fan of the series from day 1. Super Monkey Ball has always been available on the new tech in some form or another and I felt this was a decent outing for the gang. Granted, not top of the top graphics wise, but still entirely playable and familiar. Only drawback was the lack of analog – but I’m selectively forgetting about that…

Super Monkey Ball Deluxe – Xbox / PlayStation2 (2005)

Super Monkey Ball Deluxe

This was the first time the series had appeared outside the Nintendo platforms, well aside from the Arcades – but those don’t count, right? Right? … The Deluxe version was actually something of a compilation from Super Monkey Ball 1 & 2, but built with some additional content that didn’t appear in either version. Featuring over 300 levels of Super Monkey Ball, the game offered the most comprehensive version of the series for the time.
Super Monkey Ball DeluxeSuper Monkey Ball Deluxe

Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll – Nintendo DS (2006)

Solving the lack of Analog problem from the original handheld JR release (ok, I’ll remember it, fine!), the Nintendo DS version allowed the player to navigate through the world using the touch pad. Though the d-pad was still supported, the true way to play the game has always been with a precarious analog stick. Touch & Roll also modified the look of the original crew of Monkeys a bit, the look became a bit more cartoon-like.

Super Monkey Ball Touch & RollSuper Monkey Ball Touch & Roll

Super Monkey Ball – iPhone & iPad (2009)

Ok, a bit of a jump here, we’ve skipped over Banana Blitz, but I plan to return to the game tomorrow. Instead, we’re going to focus on the iPhone and iPad versions of Super Monkey Ball because, but don’t worry, we’re back on track tomorrow. So, the reason I wanted to delve into iPhone stuff was frankly because the version is so excellent, and as a fan of the series, I just didn’t want to wait and extra day and not talk about them.

SMB214

Super Monkey Ball on iPhone stands as one of the best games for the platform to this day. It was probably the first real game that I played on the iPhone and was one of the most fun and challenging offerings too. As a commuter, playing games on portable devices is a big part of my life and the iPhone version killed my battery time and time again as I trekked back home. Being that you move the world in Monkey Ball to find your way about the environment, what better way than to use the phone’s accelerometer to do exactly that. The experience is perfect.

Super Monkey Ball 2 - iPhone

How perfect? My father is not at all gifted when it comes to games, though to his credit he does try or feign interest while I try to get him to give it a shot. Monkey Ball was one of the first games that he ‘got’ and instantly was having fun. The best part is that I never had to do anything to show him how – I just handed him the device, sat back, and watched figure it out and mere moments. His face changed from scowling / expecting frustration to pure delight and he couldn’t put it down – perfect, I say!

Spanning three versions, Super Monkey Ball first appeared on the iPhone and again shortly thereafter with a sequel. The two versions were very similar in presentation, however the sequel fixed and added a lot of requested features based on fan feedback from the original. Adding in a way to center the device and adding in a less steep learning curve helped make Monkey Ball 2 on the iphone a much tighter overall experience. Let’s also not forget the iPad version, Sakura Edition, which appeared alongside the iPhone sequel. With improved visuals, HDified for the iPad, the Sakura Edition is another favorite for its smooth controls and excellent gameplay.

I honestly could keep writing these all day, but trying to keep them in bite sized chunks! Tomorrow I’ll be back for part 3 and another look at the Super Monkey Ball series – more to come!

 
   
   
 

SEGA Auctions for Charity!

Today, it’s time to give back!

People across the world have felt the effects of the massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan. As someone who was there when it all happened, we saw firsthand many of the challenges that the Japanese people are now going through. Now, more than ever, it’s crucial that we all do our part to help those who truly need it.

Here at SEGA, we’ve decided to gather some of the rarest, most unique items we could find, and we’re auctioning them all off right now, donating 100% of the funds to the Red Cross to assist in Japan relief efforts.

If you’re a SEGA fan, this is your chance – bid on super rare SEGA merchandise, and do your part to help Japan in this crucial time of need.

To all those in the SEGA Community – let’s get this started!

Yakuza Track Jacket


A super-rare, high-quality Yakuza Track Jacket!
Originally valued at over $200, we’ve started the bidding at .99 cents! This jacket is officially licensed from Ryu Ga Gotoku, or “Yakuza” here in the west. It looks and feels like one of the most epic jackets you could ever own – and, if Nagoshi himself is willing to wear it, it probably is.

You can also see this item in today’s edition of “On the Spot” over at Gamespot!

Dreamcast Hoodie



SEGA Dreamcast Hoodie

Dreamcast Sweatshirt

We created these for the recently-release Dreamcast Collection, and they’ve been super popular ever since. We’ve given away many of them through Free Stuff Friday and partnerships with other sites, but we still get asked all the time how people can buy one of them. Until today, the answer was that you can’t. This is your chance to pay for a hoodie — just be the highest bidder, and its yours. We have sizes XS, M, L, and XL (sorry, we’re out of smalls!).

Dreamcast Bag

SEGA Dreamcast - Original Dreamcast handbag

This is from the Dreamcast days… a big bag to hold all your stuff. We found this in our old office, rescued it, and have been hanging on to it for several years now, just waiting for the right occasion to part with it. This is it! It is a big bag (about 17 inches wide and 15 inches tall) and was originally intended to hold your Dreamcast console, controllers, etc. It could be used for that, or as a cool computer or book bag. There is one zippered pocket on the front (just above the logo), and it zips open to reveal one interior front pocket and 4 smaller mesh pockets on the back to organize your stuff. It has two handles at the top for hand carrying, a shoulder strap, and also some backpack straps, if that’s how you choose to roll.

Yakuza 4 Officially Licensed T-Shirt from Japan

Yakuza 4 - Rare imported Golden Dragon long-sleeve shirt (front)

Yakuza 4 - Rare imported Golden Dragon long-sleeve shirt (back)

This is an amazing shirt. It’s officially licensed, and has the Ryu Ga Gotoku tag still on it. It’s a black long-sleeve shirt in a size XL, but it’s a Japanese XL so it’s smaller than a US size XL. But you may not even want to wear it, because it’s so pretty! The front, sleeves, and back have a tattoo design in gold — as you can see, it’s very intricate and shiny. This shirt sells in Japan for approximately $110 US, so it’s definitely rare and valuable!

Valkyria Chroncles – Signed copy for PS3

One of SEGA’s best games for the PS3 – and perhaps one of the best games on the console itself – this is a rare chance to pick up a shiny copy of Valkyria Chronicles, signed by two key members of the Japanese development team. This includes Ryutaro Nonaka, the game’s producer from SEGA of Japan! The winning bid scores both the open case and a brand-new, unopened copy of the game, still in its original shrink-wrap. How’s that for awesome?

Yakuza 4 US Promo T-Shirt

Yakuza 4 - Promo T-shirt

While less rare than the Yakuza shirt above it, this is still a pretty rare item. We made 500 of these shirts to promote Yakuza 4, and just because they are more subtle than your average game t-shirt doesn’t mean it’s any less awesome. We have these in size M, L, or XL (winner picks their size). It’s a black short-sleeve shirt with a tattoo design over the shoulder, and the Yakuza 4 logo on the opposite sleeve. The screenprint design continues over the shoulder and on to the back of the shirt.

Sonic Colors Kiosk Art

Sonic Colors - Promo Station art

This is art that was originally placed in demo kiosks for Sonic Colors. Now it could be yours! There are 6 pieces in total, each with a different design of Sonic and his Wisp friends from the game. Each piece is about 28 inches tall and 9 inches wide, and they’d look great hanging on your wall!

Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll thick wall artwork

This is a piece of promo art that we used at several locations during the promotion of Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll. It’s a really big poster — 28 inches wide and 35 inches tall — and it’s mounted on heavy 1/4 inch foam core. This is a piece of art that will stand the test of time!

Yakuza 4 – Model Car Kit

Nothing says “I was once top boss of the Tojo clan” like a painmobile. (Well, that’s the literal translation, at least.) This rare Yakuza Model Car Kit comes to us from Japan, and includes a ton of awesome car stickers for use as decals! Instructions might be in Japanese, but thankfully, the box itself has enough English to tell you what you need to get this model put together and painted up.

The House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Promo “Meat” Package

This is a medium-sized (12 inches by 7 inches) package wrapped in brown butcher’s paper and packing tape with a House of the Dead OVERKILL logo sticker on the front. Inside is a styrofoam tray similar to what you’d find in a butcher shop. On that will be a fake body part of some kind — a hand, a foot, an internal organ — we don’t know what it is, because the package is unopened! So, have a heart, and you may get a heart in return!

P.S. – Not for kids!

Sonic the Hedgehog Limited Edition Lanyard

This is a black ribbon-style lanyard with the running sprite animation from the original Sonic the Hedgehog. We made these for PAX Prime 2010, and they were a monster hit. If you didn’t get a chance to pick one up, you can do so now — and for a good cause, too!

MADWORLD Gamestop Manager’s  Pre-order Kit

Better watch your step! This is a kit that was handed out to GameStop managers and employees before the launch of MADWORLD. It is a MADWORLD-branded box, that has the SEGA and GameStop logo on it as well as “MADWORLD Employee Kit” on it. Inside, there is a big red plastic button (like the Staples “easy” button) that takes 3 AAA batteries and makes a chainsaw noise when pressed. The kit also contains a bag of “Pre-Order Today” buttons with the MADWORLD logo on them, and a package of MADWORLD stickers. These stickers have the “Caution” sign design that was used throughout the marketing campaign. The box also includes a flyer for GameStop store managers.

Bid on this item now!

Sonic Classic Collection – Signed by Ken Balough


The cover of this game has been autographed in silver pen by Ken Balough, who many Sonic fans know as the SEGA Brand Manager for Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I. The front cover says “Sonic 4 games in one as you truly imagined it – Ken”. This is a blend of two recurring jokes: The first came about from the SEGA US community managers teasing that this was “Sonic 4 … games in one”. We made this joke several times on our blogs and Free Stuff Friday videos, and it’s possible that it is only funny to us. The second part, “as you truly imagined it” is a quote from Ken himself, and it became a meme within the Sonic community. Ken is a great guy, and doesn’t mind laughing at himself, so he signed this on the game for a lucky fan to cherish.

Valkyria Chronicles – Rare Promo Poster Art

What you’re looking at is one of the rarest pieces of original Valkyria Chronicles promotional merch in the west. Featuring Welkin Gunther, Alicia Melchiott, and their tank the Edelweiss, this beautiful piece of art was printed on a huge piece of glossy, thick posterboard, and was one of three pieces of promo Art used at the Valkyria Chronicles Launch Event in San Francisco.  Now you can bid on this exclusive piece of promo art and help Japan at the same time!
