“Samurai and Dragons” Also Welcoming Bayonetta, Shenmue Franchises
What will soon be the one game where you can play as either Sonic, Ryo, Bayonetta, Akira Yuki, NiGHTS, Kazuma Kiryu, Hatsune Miku, and plenty more Sega characters?
If you answered Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, you’re wrong. It turns out Sega is doing more cross-pollination in Japan than we had ever imagines, even beyond Project X Zone and Dead or Alive 5. A report from Siliconera states an array of Sonic and Sega characters will be added to Playstation Vita exclusive Samurai and Dragons come November. A Deluxe Package for the game will be released on November 29th that will include Sonic, Bayonetta, Yakuza, and Virtua Fighter cards to apply toward the game. Many more Sega cards for the game will follow as the year ends, including more Sonic cards, NiGHTS, Vanquish, Resonance of Fate, Shenmue, Panzer Dragoon, Jet Set Radio, Super Monkey Ball, Space Channel 5, Hatsune Miku and much more.
Even better, the ability to play as a Sega console will be added. Players can engage in battle with female interpretations of the Dreamcast, Sega Saturn, 32X, Sega CD, and Genesis among many other classic Sega systems.
For those unaware, Samurai and Dragons is a Japan-only title that combines dungeon crawling with card battle. Cards are bought via the in-game currency, which is how Sega makes money on the title. The video trailer below will get you caught up on the concept. It is almost a certainty the game will never make it to domestic markets. Thanks to Kori-Maru for tipping us.
