The Parties for SegaFes have started at Akihabara, Tokyo, and Sega made a few surprise Statements via Sega Sammy President Haruki Satomi.
The statement is that the Mega Drive Mini, also a console reminiscent of the NES and SNES Classic Mini, which will arrive in 2018. Satomi-san also mentioned that more information will soon be announced at a later date.
The next announcement will make a smile. Shenmue I & II Will visit PS4 at 2018 in Japan, although the west can get it done for Xbox One, PS4, and PC this year.
The game will include both English and Japanese voiceovers an option between contemporary and classic controller schemes, display resolution that is fully scalable, and it’ll come both in physical and digital forms.
I really don’t believe I want to say much to introduce the games, but they had been the brainchild of Yu Suzuki, who is now working on Shenmue III independently from Sega. The very first published for Dreamcast in 1999, although the moment came for Xbox in 2002, and Dreamcast from 2001.
The third announcement is Sega Ages to get Nintendo Switch, that includes classic titles like Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Fire IV, Phantasy Star, and More. A total of fifteen games will be included.
The fourth statement is a brand-new Sakura Taisen project which is going to be loyal into the DNA of the veteran and cherished franchise. The series, known in the west as Sakura Wars, was a mix between tactical RPG, visual novel, and dating simulator. The latest abbreviated name is Sakura Taisen V released in Japan in 2005 for PS2, also in the west in 2010 for both PS2 and Wii as Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love.
The game will probably be set in its variant of the Taisho Era from Tokyo’s Imperial Capital.
