Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix getting new DLC on Sept. 17th, 2020

26 songs on the way

SEGA has announced that the next round of DLC for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix is due out in the West on Sept. 17th, 2020. This update will bring in Song Packs 8 through 11, which feature a combined 26 new songs. If you own DLC Bundle 2 or have purchased any of the individual Song Packs, these songs will be available immediately upon the DLC’s release.

SEGA social media team explains why we're still waiting to hear Sonic news originally meant for a SXSW reveal

We'll need a bit more patience

df60db3d2e61328f71f3818d71c189f0e1c3721f_hq.gif

SEGA had originally planned to make some Sonic the Hedgehog announcements back at South X SouthWest, but that ended up getting squashed due to the pandemic, which then further pushed any/all announcements out of the way. Fans have been wondering why nothing has come out since the original announcement delay back in March, and now SEGA has shared an explanation.

According to a portion of SEGA's team, SEGA has worked out a new delivery method for revealing this Sonic content, but they just can't make it work right now due to the pandemic. They seem to really like this plan they have in the works, but making it happen just isn't feasible at the moment. Rather than abandoning this idea, they're working behind the scenes to see what they can tweak or make happen in order to move ahead with this presentation plan. No set time for a reveal just yet, but SEGA is doing the best they can to figure things out.

Thanks to OperationGamer17 for the heads up!

SEGA doubles down on Double Packs

Just last week, we found out that Sonic Mania and Team Sonic Racing would be getting a 'Double Pack' release on Switch. Looks like that's not the only new Double Pack on the way, as another listing has been spotted on GameFly's site.

According to GameFly's listing, SEGA is going to be releasing a Sonic Forces + Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Double Pack as well. Their listing includes an Oct. 31st, 2020 release date, which is most likely placeholder, but it doesn't include a price. If we're basing things on the other Double Pack, expect this one to cost $40.
