IGN wrote:SEGA MEGA DRIVE MINI CONSOLE ANNOUNCED

SEGA has unveiled its new Mega Drive Mini console, which will be released in Japan later this year.

The console was announced in Japan during the company's annual SEGA FES event. Details regarding which games will be included in the (tentatively titled) SEGA Mega Drive Mini have not yet been revealed. A photo of the console being held, as well as a close-up image of the device, were posted on the official Japanese SEGA Twitter account.

While the console has only been announced for Japan, it's quite possible an announcement for the west is on the horizon, as it's clear SEGA isn't blind to the success Nintendo has seen with the NES Classic Mini and SNES Classic Mini.

Seeing as how the Mega Drive is known as the Genesis in North America, if the mini console does indeed make its way to the region, it would likely have Genesis branding instead.

Coming to Japan in 2018.

IGN wrote:VALKYRIA CHRONICLES ANNOUNCED FOR NINTENDO SWITCH IN JAPAN

The company shared the news during its annual SEGA FES event in Japan, and relayed the information in a post on Twitter. The game will be released for Switch in Japan this fall on the eShop. The Switch version will include all of the DLC, just like the remastered version for PS4, Gematsu reports.
There's currently no word on when/if the first Valkyria Chronicles will be released for Switch outside of Japan.

SEGA also announced the Switch version of Valkyria Chronicles 4 has been delayed in Japan. Instead of launching this summer, the game will be released in Japan sometime this fall. Those who purchase Valkyria Chronicles 4 on Switch will get a "Reduced Price Purchase Coupon Download Code" to buy the first Valkyria Chronicles on Switch for 500 yen.

For those in North America and Europe, Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be released for PS4, Xbox One, and Switch this fall.

Hmm...unsure if VC would be suited to Switch. Yes you could do one battle at a time, but some of them battles take ages

I've bought microtransactions but never loot-boxes.

I see MTs as a fun throwaway sort of 'tip' for the developer and I only ever buy them in games I really like, like FFXIV. But I cannot understand paying a tenner or a fiver or whatever and just sitting there hoping you get something that isn't shit :?

Is it the animation people like? The suspense of it? Like give me a fiver and maybe I will shit in your hand. Or maybe I wont? The suspense! :o

It’s the same feeling as gambling, you put money in because you might get an epic skin/character/perk etc. out of it

I’ve never paid for a loot box mind, I only experienced them in Overwatch and opening them was great, but then you felt you earnt them for levelling up or winning games, and they’re just cosmetic so they give no advantages other than looking lit af.

:lol: I do have a Switch. No idea what "microtransactions" or "loot-boxes" are though. Didn't say I don't like gaming, I just haven't been a big part of it since my PS3 died a couple years ago. I am no longer upto date with my terminology, clearly.

Have a wild guess what a microtransaction is though. Go on. Give it a go

They're in phone apps as well
