Looks like people are receiving their Vyse statues. My statues actually came in today (I got the Regular and Exclusive versions)! The above is somebody who received their Vyse statue in December and unboxed it. It’s a really nice statue!
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Released in Japan was released in Japan two days ago, May 15th 2014, on PlayStation 3 and Wii U. Rogues’ Landing has been localized as 青の空賊島, or Blue Rogues’ Island.
The Archive page has been revamped. Ares and Mars Arcadia, the precursor to EsoArcadia, will be purged eventually once I move all the relevant information from those sites to this site’s wiki, so for those people who update skiesofarcadia.wikia.com and like to copy and paste from this site to update that wiki instead, better get to it before they’re gone from the ‘net forever!
As a tradeoff, the official US site has been unearthed and has been added to the Archive page.

Yup, there’s a Downloads page now, after being broken for 2 years, so for all two people who actually clicked Downloads and miss the 404 Error displayed, tough luck! It has the Dreamcast add-on downloads, the soundtrack and drama CDs, and Skies of Arcadia font. If anyone has any other suggestions to put in the Downloads page, be sure to suggest them in the comments!
Some old news that I don’t think was ever reported on an English site: There was a Skies of Arcadia art show prior to the one on March 9, 2014: It happened on September 13, 2009 at the same convention and place: セガのゲームは世界いち (Sega Games Are the World’s Greatest) at the Ota Bunka Hall Apricot. It’s hard to dig up more information due to how old this is, but better late than never, right? Right?!?!
Hopefully this will be a fairly regular occurrence. It would be about 5 years until the next art show!
You can read the original Japanese press release after the jump!
In Japan, there’s a convention called the セガのゲームは世界いち (Sega no Game wa Sekai-ichi) which roughly translates to “Sega Games are the World’s Best”.
There has been an art show for Skies of Arcadia in one of the prior years, and there was another one this year. This art show took place at March 9th, 2014 at the Ota-Bunka Hall, Aprico facility at station F-11・12.
Sega of Japan is releasing the Japanese edition of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. It is expected to be released May 15th.
First 4 Figures have announced they’re taking pre-orders for a Vyse statue being made. There’s the standard version and the exclusive version, the latter which comes with a switch-out right arm holding the Pirate’s Cutlass. Vyse is 11″ tall while the statue measures 17″ tall. Both statues are expected to be released Q4 2014.
