Sonic 4 Music Leaked!

by Shane Willoughby - on Mar 30th 2010 at 6:10 pm (IST). This post has No Comments

Ah, poor Sonic. The little blue guy can’t catch a break. Having been subject to some really miserable games for the last number of years, Sega seemed to have finally got things right with the announcement of Sonic 4, the first true Sonic sequel in many years and a game that lends more to his 2D legacy then his rather forgettable 3D incarnations.

Now, even though a new 2D Sonic is on the way, people are still skeptical and now it appears that someone has leaked the majority if not all of the game’s entire soundtrack on the web. Ouch!

SoundCloud’s BigTheCat has leaked the tunes to the following zones,

* Splash Hill Zone
* Casino Street
* Lost Labyrinth
* Mad Gear
* Special Stage
* Boss Music
* Invincibility
* Final Stage
* Ending

We love Sonic music and were happy to say that this sounds great. Sonic 4 will hit WiiWare, XBLA and the PSN early this summer.

Check the site out and download the Splash Hills Theme. It’s not exactly Green Hill Zone, but it’s still good all the same.

The Japanese really do make the funniest ads. Check out this one for Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney on WiiWare. It’s indicatively Japanese and we love it. No real concrete news yet on this Ace Attorney making an appearance on Western Wiis yet but as soon as we hear something, we will yet you know. In the mean time enjoy the ad and wish you were a member of this family.

First Screens of Phoenix Wright on WiiWare.

TGL have to say that we were initially underwhelmed when we saw these screens. The annoucement that Phoenix Wright was to break free from the DS to the Wii was a big news for fans of the game. However is looks like its going to be nothing more than a port of the DS game, which is fine, we suppose. No fancy HD remake here! One can imagine that Capcom and Nintendo will play around with textures and resolutions abit so as to make the game look better when its on your big TV screen. What do you think? Check out this bunch of screens.

OBJECTION!!!! Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is coming to Wii

by Shane Willoughby - on Nov 5th 2009 at 11:58 am (IST). This post has No Comments

Yep, it looks like DS point and click favorite, Phoenix Wright is going to make his debut on Wii pretty soon. The German USK rating system has today revealed that the title will soon be available on Wiiware. But the specific details are scare. The guys over at GamerBytes have revealed this news and they are suggesting that since the game appears on a rating system without a prior announcement, it’ll probably be a digital release, hence Wiiware. Hopefully, Phoenix Wright appears on the Wii sooner rather than later. If the game does see a release, it’ll be Capcom’s first Wiiware game since Mega man 9. We’ll keep you posted.
