Sega announces Demon Tribe, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and more for mobile
Sega of America has today announced a lineup of planned mobile games through the end of the year, and into early 2014. Three new games are in the works, as well as a re-release to a classic Sonic the Hedgehog title, with all games having an iOS release.
Sega will bring Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed to iOS and Android before the end of the year. This kart-racing title is the sequel to Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, which was previously released on iOS and Android. Depending on the track, vehicles turn into planes or boats automatically, as the ground disappears from the track, or turns into liquid. The game will feature a new World Tour mode, four-player local and online races and “comprehensive social integration.” The game is set to launch sometime this Winter.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is being re-mastered for mobile, and will be released as a free update to iOS owners of the original app. The game is coming to Android in this remastered version, which is set to release sometime in November. The game features re-mastered audio and upgraded graphics running at 60 fps.
This winter, Sega will release Demon Tribe on iOS devices. The game comes from Masayoshi Kikiuchi, who worked on classic games in the Panzer Dragoon and Yakuza series, as well as Jet Grind Radio. The game is a combination of card collecting and action-RPG games, along with a multiplayer online battle arena experience (MOBA). Players will capture and fuse demons as they build their team, entering battles in a world threatened by a demon infestation. Players can enter into both cooperative and competitive MOBA battles, supporting up to 6 players in real-time 3-on-3 battles.
Finally, Sega’s Rhythm Thief & The Paris Caper will launch on iOS devices in early 2014. The game introduces players to Raphael and his friend Fondue, on a quest to discover the secrets behind the disappearance of Raphael’s father. The rhythm game will see players tapping to the beat to explore environments, gather clues and defeat enemies.
