SEGA 3D Fukkoku Archives 3: Final Stage will include After Burner II, Super Hang-On, Bare Kunckle II, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Gunstar Heroes. It will also include the game most requested by fans, according to a survey that came with the previous collection.
The mystery title has not yet been announced, but the runners up in the survey were: Wing Wor, Gain Ground, OutRunners and Virtua Racing.
Earlier this year, North America and Europe saw the launch of SEGA 3D Classics Collection, which was actually the second SEGA 3D Fukkoku Archives game. The first came out in 2014 and was exclusive to Japan.No comments
Following its announcement earlier this week, SEGA put out the first trailer for Puyo Puyo Chronicle, which gives a closer look at the upcoming 3DS puzzle RPG’s main story.
The official site for the game is now also up, but there isn’t much in the way of new information. It mostly goes over what was revealed when the game was first announced.
Puyo Puyo Chronicle is dated for December 8 in Japan, where it will also get a special Anniversary Box release.No comments
In celebration of the Puyo Puyo series turning 25 this year, SEGA announced Puyo Puyo Chronicle for the 3DS.
One of the game’s major features is the RPG mode. In the story, the main character Arle and her partner Carbuncle get transported to an alternate dimension where they go on an adventure to find their way back home. Battles take place on a traditional puzzle grid, with players attacking by dropping and connecting Puyo to create combos that do damage to their opponents.
Other game modes include classic Puyo Puyo-style matches with 17 different rule sets from previous games, plus a local co-op mode where up to four players can team up to fight a boss in a similar manner to the RPG mode.
Puyo Puyo Chronicle is set to launch on December 8 in Japan. There are also plans to release a special Anniversary Box. It will contain an anniversary-themed soundtrack, vocal track, drama CD and a Puyo Puyo anniversary theme.

New stuff usually gets added to the eShop on Thursdays, but that is not the case for the 7th Dragon III Code: VFD demo because it is out today.
The demo is limited to 30 uses and gives you a pre-made party that caps out at level 10. Transferring your demo save over to the full game when it comes out on July 12 will net you some bonuses, like all of the skill points you earned and some starter equipment.
SEGA hints that there is another reward, but you will have to play to find out what it is.

While the image of Sonic reading up on “how to meme” is amusing enough as it is, it is the “What I actually do” picture that is intriguing the hedgehog’s social media followers because it sounds like SEGA is getting ready to officially announce that there is a new Sonic game in the works.
The tags used on Tumblr further suggest a new entry and hint that we may have already gotten a look at this new project.No comments
While 7th Dragon III Code: VFD is set to launch on July 12 in North America, SEGA currently has no plans to bring the 3DS JRPG to Europe.
SEGA community manager Dan Sheridan confirmed the lack of release plans during a Q&A session in a recent YouTube video for the upcoming SEGA-published Motorsport Manager.
Even though they cannot confirm a release for Europe, SEGA is aware of the fan demand for the game and they are looking into the feasibility of a European localization.
