Now Available for LEGO DimensionsJason Love

The two big packs here are the "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" Story Pack, and the "Sonic the Hedgehog" Level Pack. The former includes a new hero figure (Newt Scamander) and a new vehicle (the Niffler) along with six new levels that follow the story of the film/play/book. It also lets you change the LEGO Gateway on the Portal Pad to the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) building. These story packs are the new tier of expansions for LEGO Dimensions this year, with the first one based on the new "Ghostbusters" movie from this past summer.

Two Sonic Games in the Works, Possibly Featuring Co-OpJason Love

It's unclear at this point if either game will feature co-op as many of their previous titles have. The trailer for Project Sonic features the line "but even heroes need help" before an updated version of the "classic" Sonic appeared to team up with the "modern" Sonic. Sonic Mania is an interesting "remastered vision" of the original Sega classics and features three playable characters - Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles - but it made no mention of whether it would support co-op.

Most of the titles that are available through the bundle are single-player only, but if you chip at least $10, you'll get Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, both of which can be enjoyed with a friend locally. You could also go ahead and pick up all the Sonic games on Steam for just $56.50 as part of the Steam Summer Sale. One way or the other, the Blue Blur will get your money...

When the fall comes around, things kick off with Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible "level packs," Harry Potter and Adventure Time "team packs," and an A-Team "fun pack." As a quick breakdown of what all of that means, the level packs include a new level, new character, and a couple new gadgets or vehicles, the team packs include characters and gadgets/vehicles, and the fun packs include a character and a gadget or vehicle. All of this new content will be compatible with the existing LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, so you won't need to buy anything but the expansions.

These aren't just any old Genesis games, either - they're among the greatest games to ever be released for Sega's 16-bit console. Sega's release slate kicks off in July with the launch of 3D Streets of Rage 2. Considered by many to be one of the best beat-'em-ups of all time, Streets of Rage 2 established the Sega Genesis as a 16-bit powerhouse, delivering massive character sprites, four playable characters, and surprisingly complex brawling mechanics.

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric stick Sonic and his pals Knuckles, Tails and Amy Rose in an all-new world to run around in. The 3DS version is largely a sidescrolling affair, while the Wii U version frees things up a bit with a movable camera perspective and 3D levels. Either way, co-op is part of the experience, allowing players to work together to solve puzzles like the infamous "there's a giant robotic bug in the way and two people have to tug at its electric eyes in order to get it to move" conundrum.

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for Wii U was originally slated to release on November 18th, one week after the 3DS version of the game, Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal. Now, SEGA has announced that both games will be available in North America November 11, with the UK versions dashing in just ten days later. Co-op is limited to two local players, but with the focus on speed and exploration, that's probably a good thing.

Actually, Sonic Boom is a pair of games, one for Wii U and one for 3DS, with slight interface and graphical changes to accommodate the smaller screens. The portable version is Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal and will hit the U.S. market on November 11 and the UK November 21. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for Wii U is out a week later in the U.S. but the same day in the UK. Why? Because Sonic is just that fast.
