Sonic Generations Demo Coming Soon!

Sega of America has notified everyone to let us all know that a new Sonic Generations demo, which includes Modern Sonic gameplay as well as Classic Sonic, will be hitting Xbox Live sometime today in Europe and North America. It’s not up yet as of 7AM EST, but I suppose they still have 17 hours to go.

If you don’t happen to have an Xbox for some reason, you can grab it next week on PSN on October 25th, 2011. Bummer.

Today we are excited to confirm that a second demo is incoming for Sonic Generations! Best of all, it’s coming really really soon – like really soon! The second demo for the game will be available via Xbox Live Arcade on 18th October across North America and Europe and PlayStation Network on 25th October for North America! You’ve been waiting patiently, you’ve seen the demos, videos and materials we’ve been teasing – now you can enjoy the demo a few days ahead of the full game release on November 1st!

The first demo, released on June 23rd 2011 – the anniversary of Sonic’s 20th year – allowed fans to play as Classic Sonic only. Now the second demo not only contains the Classic content you enjoyed, but now adds in Modern Sonic in the iconic Green Hill level from Sonic Generations! Take that Monday, this week just got a whole lot better!

Guardian Heroes is Out on XBLA!

Treasure’s hectic 2D Saturn beat’em up Guardian Heroes is finally out today on XBLA. It costs a mere $10, or 800 MSP, which sure as hell beats the $60+ the US version goes for on eBay. Even better is all of the polish that has been given to this game. I’ve played a couple of hours of it so far and it looks great. I’m looking forward to lots of multiplayer mayhem on Xbox Live and in the house.

I feel like it’s $10 well spent, despite having played a lot of it back in the day.

It’s featuring the original Japanese soundtrack! The release, according to Sega, will feature “enhanced widescreen graphics, special iOS features, Xbox LIVE Achievements, PSN Trophies, PC Achievements and more.”
