Nintendo and SEGA are getting wonderfully cosy together, and already coming from that relationship is a collection of thirteen Game Gear titles that are now set for release on the 3DS via the Virtual Console. The complete list of games can be found after the break.
Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed was announced for the 3DS and people compared it to Mario Kart 7 as there are flying and underwater sections in the game. A more accurate comparison would be to Diddy Kong Racing, but based on the proximity of the releases, All-Stars Racing seems a little too inspired by Mario Kart.
But that’s not what I believe, and Jem Lee, the producer of the game doesn’t believe it either. When talking about the flying parts in Mario Kart 7, he said:
…although it’s kind of flying, it’s more falling with style because we’d discussed something similar to that in pre-production as we were trying to work out how to get these three modes in and we called it falling with style as you’re always falling but you have some choice. Whereas the driving under water… that’s not boating. So what they have is a kart game with additive options which are really well built on and add to the experience but we’ve gone away with that in what we were doing.
Of course, the producer of the game isn’t going to bad-mouth a game they’re producing. But even so, to those who were quick to dismiss the title, give it the benefit of the doubt. I think there’s something to it.
The teaser website for the mystery project between Capcom, SEGA, and Namco Bandai has been updated with a countdown clock. The clock is set to end next week, so it’s safe to assume we’ll probably get concrete details about the game at that time. For now though, we’ll just have to wait.
Capcom, SEGA and Namco Bandai are working together on a mystery project for the 3DS. The teaser website was updated with chromosomes associated with each company, and these chromosomes appear to be related to individual characters from each company (one of them could be connected with Bayonetta, for instance). In the past few hours, the website was updated again with two new chromosomes attached to each company.
There was also a light added to the top left corner of the website. Based on the amount of lights that can fit in this section and the rate at which these lights are being “switched on”, it seems that the game will be unveiled on April 11th. You can click here to see the website, or follow this thread at NeoGAF for the speculation.
SEGA has released the first screenshots of Game Gear games on the 3DS. They’re after the break.
We won’t have any details yet, but the recent Nintendo Direct broadcast in Japan has confirmed that SEGA, Capcom and Namco Bandai are collaborating on a mystery project for the 3DS. That’s all we have to go on for the time being, but feel free to make lots of wild guesses as to what it might be.

SEGA has revealed that CRUSH3D will be making its way to Japan on the 23rd of February. They also released new screenshots from the game that you can check out after the break.
