Live-action/animated Sonic film due in 2018

A portion of a TWP interview with Hajime Satomi, President and CEO of the Sega Sammy Holdings Inc....

HS: Sega Sammy Group is currently planning with Sony Pictures to create a live-action and animation hybrid “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie scheduled for release in 2018. Like with this CG animation production, we would like to expand our business into other entertainment areas beyond what we are currently involved.

Fire Emblem Fates - petting mini-game IS in-game, but only available with certain conditions

Looks like the petting mini-game back-and-forth isn't over yet. According to GameSpot, the mini-game is indeed included, but it's only available under certain conditions.

- only for units that have S-Supports
- could potentially be available for A+ supports with Corrin

You can hear the discussion of the topic at the 43 minute mark...

We also have a look at the extent of the mini-game, which seems like it might not be as detailed as the Japanese release...
