Last month, the official Sonic the Hedgehog social media accounts hinted at a new Sonic game being in the works. Now, during the Sonic 25th Joypolis Party recently held in Japan, SEGA appeared to confirm that the next Sonic project will start next year.
The use of the word “project” is somewhat ambiguous. Earlier this week, Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka told Famitsu that they were working on a new game, a new movie and continuing animation on the “Sonic Boom” TV series. It is possible that this new announcement could be referring to any of these new endeavors.No comments
Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino confirmed that the next Inazuma Eleven and Professor Layton game will be announced at their Level-5 Vision 2016 event on July 27.
Details are still scarce, but Hino did mention that the new Inazuma Eleven will have a new protagonist and that the game’s story will be more like the original game and not include the outlandish story elements brought in with the sequels.
As for the new Layton, there will also be a new protagonist and Hino confirmed that it will not be Professor Layton’s son Alfendi Layton, who was introduced in the mobile-only Layton Brothers: Mystery Room.

Nintendo and frozen yogurt chain Yogurtland aren’t exactly two companies you would expect to do business with each other, but that’s exactly what they’re doing this summer. From July 1 to September 8, select Yogurtland locations will feature decorations of classic Nintendo characters and offer specially-branded flavors like “Mario’s Chocolate Gelato,” “Luigi’s White Chocolate Pistachio” and “Toad’s Rocky Road.”
During that same time, the Yogurtland website will offer visitors chances to enter a sweepstakes to win prizes like unlimited frozen yogurt cups, Wii U and 3DS games or a 3DS that comes with one game. Once a week throughout the entire promotion, Yogurtland will award one lucky winner a grand prize package of a new Wii U and one year of free frozen yogurt.

Valhalla Game Studios’ Devil’s Third came out only six months ago, but Nintendo already announced plans to shut down the game’s online multiplayer services by the end of the year.
The termination will take place in two parts. On June 27, players will no longer be able to purchase Golden Eggs, items that can be exchanged for in-game gear or money.

With the announcement of the game’s online services going down, Nintendo is dropping the price of the eShop version of Devil’s Third from $59.99 to $29.99 beginning today.
