Jun Senoue has today officially confirmed via the Crush 40 Twitter feed that he will be performing on SEGA’s stage at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. SEGA’s TGS website says the performance kicks off at 16:20 and ends 30 minutes later at 16:50 Japan Standard Time (08:20 GMT/03:20 EDT) on September 18th and will be broadcast via Ustream. Johnny Gioeli will not be there due to a busy schedule. Instead, Cash Cash’s Alex Makhlouf will perform alongside Senoue-san.

[EDIT: Unfortunately Alex is unable to attend, and instead JP from Cash Cash will be filling in the role! = T]
We’ve known for a long time that the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Generations will feature a multiplayer mode for 2 players, but SEGA has never gone into any detail about it. Now, thanks to information on SEGA’s new Tokyo Game Show 2011 website, we know that the mode will also have online functionality for 2 players.
Other than that little nugget, there are no other new details. SEGA will be taking the 3DS and PS3 versions of Sonic Generations to the Tokyo Game Show in a couple of weeks time, so hopefully more details and media will be revealed then.
