Shinobi 3DS – StreetPass Trailer

Shinobi 3DS Logo

Our newest Shinobi 3DS trailer features new and exciting information – yes, no exaggeration – fans of the Shinobi series will be able to play as the legendary Joe Musashi! As part of the Street Pass features within the new Shinobi game, players will guide Joe through a series of challenges that are just as deadly as his first outing in the arcades. Deadly not only for the maps themselves, but the one-hit-death mechanics at play that mirror that of the original arcade Shinobi. Check the trailer for more:

See those glowing red walls? Ya, those are bad and quite a challenge to get through. Don’t be fooled by a trailer that has a clean playthrough, you’ll find these maps to be extra tough! As always, feedback, we love it – post away!

Free Stuff Friday – September, 30 2011

Who’s got that Friday feeling?  Who want to win some Free Stuff?

Free Stuff Friday 30 September 2011

Whats on offer

1.Sonic Gamescom Laptop Bag

2.Dreamcast Hoodie Large size

3.Aliens Vs Predator XBOX360 Hunters Edition (PAL Region)

4.Dreamcast Collection (PC) Including SEGA Bass Fishing and Space Channel 5 Part 2

5.Aliens Vs Predator T-Shirt


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, a word or phrase, 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!)


We tweet “GIVEAWAY: Sonic T-shirt, size L. Be the 15th person to DM “Sonic Adventure” to win!”

You see this, and want to win it, so you send us a direct message that says “Sonic Adventure”. If you are the 15th person to do so, you are the winner!

Quotation marks do not matter, capitalization does not matter, but spelling does matter!

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.

How to Send Direct Messages on Twitter

Due to a change in our account status with Twitter, you should be able to send us direct messages without us following you.

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.
