Sega revealed today that it will be announcing a new project with an official livestream next week, without giving many hints.
Sega announced today that it will be announcing a new project with an official livestream next week.
The live stream will take place on June 3 at 8:00 PM Japan Time, which translates to 7:00 AM EDT, 4:00 AM PDT, not BST, and 1:00 PM CEST.
At this time, the nature of the project has not been disclosed, but it will be presented by two Sega veterans, Hiroyuki Miyazaki and Yosuke Okunari.
Interestingly enough, the announcement was made with what appears to be the image representing a chocolate-covered Sega Genesis controller and Miyazaki-san was project lead on the Sega Genesis Mini, while Okunari-san worked as content lead on the micro console.
Below you will find the embed of the event, if you want to watch.
Lately, Sega has been talking about focusing on both new games and remakes/remasters, so this project could be anything.
In addition, the company is also teasing its “Super Game” project that includes multiple AAA games that will be multiplatform, with global multilingual support and simultaneous global release.
It’s also worth noting that Sega’s western arm hasn’t said a pip about it for now, potentially limiting the scope of the announcement.
At this point, your guess is as good as mine.
