Today’s Daily Briefs:
- SEGA 3D Classics Collection
- Super Mario Bros. 3 speedrun @ The Late Show
- Skylanders Imaginators
- Circle Ent.
- Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE [Update!]
Released back in April in North America, the SEGA 3D Classics Collection is a collection of SEGA 3D Classics games released at retail. It’s based on the second compilation, released last year in Japan, and includes some bonus titles not released separately.
Unfortunately, the collection is still not available in Europe, but at least, SEGA does have plan to release it in that region. Today, a rating for the SEGA 3D Classics Collection popped up on the website of the ACB (Australian Classification Board), confirming that the game would indeed be released in that country (and therefore in Europe too).
Naturally, SEGA should make a proper announcement within the next few weeks!
Head after the break for the rest of this post!
Super Mario Bros. 3 speedrun @ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Yesterday, Mitch Fowler announced that he would be at the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday, in order to speedrun Super Mario Bros. 3!
In an interview with Inquisitr, Dan Neil from Toys For Bob confirmed that the Mario and Browser Skylanders figures from Skylanders SuperCharger would indeed be compatible with the latest Skylanders game, Skylanders Imaginators.
Here’s what he said about that:
“They are. We support all Skylanders from all previous Skylanders games, which is over 300 playable characters at this point. We also support the vehicles from SuperChargers. And, the SuperChargers race tracks are actually included inside of Skylanders Imaginators. So, if you do have vehicles from Skylanders SuperChargers, you can use them with Imaginators to race on those tracks. But, you can also race on those tracks with a digital vehicle, so you don’t even need a [physical] vehicle to enjoy racing in Imaginators.”
Today and yesterday, Circle Ent. made some announcements on Twitter:
- they’re brining Noah’s Cradle (on Nintendo 3DS) to Europe and North America
- they’re working on the localisation of another Japanese escape adventure game, a sequel to be more precise. No release date given
- Adventure Labyrinth Story has passed lotcheck at Nintendo of Europe, and should be released sometime in July. We can expect the North American release to follw shortly after.
