What’s up with all the 3DS release date changing today? I don’t know, but Sega has jumped into the fray. Both Shinobi and Crush 3D for the Nintendo 3DS are being delayed. Shinobi, which was supposed to come out in September, will see store shelves on November 15. Crush 3D, also supposed to be out in September, will instead come out on February 21 next year. GamesIndustry.biz claims a sales perspective drove the decision, with one developer stating, “We had to delay the release of [Crush 3D] because of the success of the platform.”
Iwata recently blamed the less-than-expected sales of the 3DS on a weak launch lineup and the witch hunts alleging health problems. Let’s hope no more anticipated titles suffer from the lack of excitement for the handheld.
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. It’s a popular phrase that goes back almost 200 years and Sega has certainly adopted it in their crusade to create another great Sonic the Hedgehog game on a console. The publisher will try again this year as Sonic Generations (3DS, PS3, Xbox 360) leads their E3 lineup. Sega is so sure they’ve got it right this time that they’re even giving the public a sneak peek at the game at the Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 8 at 6 PM (Pacific Time).
The remainder of Sega’s lineup is pretty diverse and seems to have a little bit of something for everyone:
- The long-gestating squad-based shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines
- Platinum Games’ latest brawler, Anarchy Reigns
- The Terminator-esque Binary Domain
- Movie-to-game adaptation Captain America: Super Soldier
- The reborn puzzler Crush 3D
- The XBLA debut of Treasure’s Guardian Heroes
- The brilliant light gun shooter House of the Dead: Overkill, on the PS3 for the first time.
- Downloadable action title Renegade Ops
- The first M-rated Kinect game, Rise of Nightmares
- The rally racer Sega Rally Online Arcade, which is available now
- And Shinobi emerging from the shadows on the 3DS
Sega also has a few surprises in store for the E3 Expo as they’ve promised “more than 13 new games across all major platforms,” but they only listed 12 games. Considering the company’s close relationship with Nintendo, I’d bet good money that we’ll get a Wii 2 announcement or two.
