Sonic Adventure Director Interested in Remaking Dreamcast Classic



The director of 1998’s Sonic Adventure (Sonic the Hedgehog’s first 3D game), Takashi Iizuka, has said that he would be interested in a full remake of the title.

Sonic Team head Iizuka told Retro Gamer magazine that he thought that Sonic Adventure was a little rough around the edges by today’s standards, and that fact sparked his interest in creating a full remake with modern technology and tools.

Iizuka noted that though Sonic Adventure was a high-speed platform adventure game, it also introduced several other gameplay elements through its other playable characters, which also meant that gamers had to play as each character to get the full story. Another unique system introduced in the game was the ‘A-Life’ Chao creatures, who had their own virtual pet mini-game.

Sonic Adventure was the best selling title on the Dreamcast and was later ported to several other consoles, as well as getting a PC release. As such, the game has maintained a high profile and a dedicated fan following across the years. Nevertheless, though groundbreaking in its time, the game has not aged particularly well.

Remakes of classic video games are all the rage at the moment, with 3D platformers such as Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon drawing particular attention and praise from audiences.

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine Adds Chinese-American Stories and Chinese Localization



Where The Water Tastes Like Wine

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine will be receiving a new content update featuring Chinese-American stories, including full Chinese language support.

According to Steam, a new content update entitled “Gold Mountain” is available for anyone who owns the game. The update focuses on new tales focusing on Chinese Americans and their impact on American history and culture. The Steam update also explains the reasoning for including these stories:

“The Gold Mountain update was created to honor the millions of Chinese-Americans generally overlooked in American history. We hope that you enjoy the new original stories that are included in the update and look forward to reading all of your thoughts.”

Additionally, the ‘Gold Mountain’ update includes full Chinese language support for the game’s ‘Fireside Chats’, which is a free standalone experience that adds exclusive story content to the game’s 16 characters. The full Chinese version of the main game will release once the Chinese localization team, led by Ryan Zhang, finishes the new content.

OnlySP’s Derek Swinhart was left disappointed by the game when it released last year, stating that it promised “a long and exciting road-trip across unknown territory, but ends up only offering flat tires and postcards of better places.”
