While Sonic Forces was a bit of a miss, Sega seem to be making a concerted effort to give their fans what they want these days, with Sonic Mania, Shenmue I and II getting a re-release, and now the confirmation that two more big titles are coming to PC, along with a new trailer for the upcoming Team Sonic Racing.

These games are available now to pre-order through Steam, dubbed "BEST OF JAPAN, and includes both Valkyria Chronicles 4, and Yakuza 0, a prequel to Yakuza Kiwami, where you play as Kiryu, a Japanese mafia member who gets into some serious bother, and accused of murder. A release date of August 1st was announced, along with pre-order bonuses including wallpaers, avatars, and a new digital manga, as well as a small discount. The quality of the ports remain to be seen, but we are promised that they will be capable of 4K graphics and much higher frame rates.


Also revealed was a new trailer for Team Sonic Racing, from the developers of the excellent Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing series, Sumo Digital. They had let slip they were working on a kart racer for a 'Big IP' some time, which lead to rumours of a new All Stars Racing game, but this was flat out denied by Sega. Which wasn't really a lie as this new game focuses purely on the universe of the Blue Blur.

Expect another decent kart racer then, with game modes including Grand Prix, Time Trial, and a new mode called Team Adventure, which seems to borrow cues from Sonic Heroes, by allowing players to utilize various team mechanics to assist through the race. 

Oh, and the amazing Crush 40 are back after an extended leave of absence to provide the main theme. So enjoy that and the trailer below!
