The game seems like it’s an early-development version in which they have added randomly Sonic to a ‘X game made in UE4 engine’ type of world

Sega will be at Twitchcon Amsterdam (July 16-17).

EDIT: Sega's Pride Month statement. They are one of the more LGBTQ+ friendly Japanese companies and support their LGBTQ+ employees year-round.

Sonic Central was a big nothing stream. In other Sonic news, it has been confirmed that not all music in Sonic 3 and Knuckles is able to be used in Sonic Origins so they're adapting 1993 prototype music to be included.

Was looking at how good Sega games have been doing on mobile

The Hatsune Miku game has been continuing to bring a ludicrous amount of revenue. It absolutely dwarves Puyo Puyo despite that game bringing in almost $2 million a month too. Beyond that, it is impressive that Chain Chronicle continues to make decent money despite it being nearly 9 years old.

If the public doesn't understand something, maybe you haven't explained it that well. Sonic Frontiers might become a case study in how not to message about your game to the public.

Additionally the console choice is Ps4,5,xbo, xsx, pc.

Again it seem like when Sega/Atlus say multiplatform they mean everything but switch.
This is SEGA Europe, they make all their decisions without a lot of interference from SEGA Japan and they haven't been known Nintendo supporters before there was no reason to think that would change. SEGA Japan/SEGA Europe/Atlus are the three gaming pilars of the company and we shouldn't treat all like they make the same decisions like we don't do with Bamco, SE or Spike Chunsoft

We're they know xbox supporters before?
Yes, they are usually PC focused (most of their games are PC only) but SEGA Europe is the branch closest to Xbox with most of their games being on GP (their biggest entry in a couple of years that released just this year was day 1 on GP)

I mean if most of their games were PC only I dont know why not having a strong nintendon history would be a factor. They just don't have a strong console history but that didn't stop them from going with PS/Xbox.

At this point too the switch has been on the market for 5 years. If they wanted it part of their multiplat strategy it would be there

Sega West (Europe) is pretty decent on Switch tbh. Football Manager series, Two Point series and the occasional port like Alien Isolation or Endless Dungeon. They could certainly do worse, look at Ryu ga Gotoku Studio.

Hyenas... not really my vibe, but perhaps they can eat some of Payday's audience away from Starbreeze.

It looks like Sega Frontiers is coming out on November 8, 2022. Is this going to be another rushed out Sonic game?

there's not much to imply it will be yet. Sega seems to have given them proper time and budget for this. not only that, the movies did a number to raise the profile of the Sonic brand, so all that's left is for Sonic Team to provide. I think even a 77-83 metacritic would yield very positive results for the game

This new Sonic Frontiers trailer proves that Sonic's marketing team needs a marketing overhaul. We should have gotten a trailer like this a month ago.

Seeing that they are releasing a remake of Ishin! game available on PS3/PS4 on PS4/5/XB systems I would not discard they have plans to remake rest PS3 based Yakuza titles (0, Kiwami 1, 3, 4, 5). They want Yakuza to be an annual IP so it makes sense to intercalate between new games (with turn based RPG elements), remakes and spin-offs.

A Yakuza 0 remake would likely release early 2025, thats 10 years after its original release (2015). Kiwami 1 was release ~10 years after PS2 version, so wouldn’t feel bad.

And would be more easier to just include next Switch HW in their plans and quickly port Kiwami 2, 6 and 7 (+8) in the near future.

I doubt that. The 0, Kiwami 1 , Kiwami 2, 3 Remasterd , 4 Remastered and 5 Remastered already are playable on current systems. They remake Ishin because it was on of the last yakuza games not playable on current systems.
Incredible that all the main Yakuza games are now disponible in PS/XBox and PC.

Ishin! was release on PS3 and PS4 back on its day, in fact, it was a PS4 launch title in japan.


And now they are making a remake on UE4 for all current and previous gen systems, except Switch.

So I wouldn’t discard they have plans to remake on UE4 the rest of PS3 Yakuza games (0, Kiwami 1, 3, 4, 5). It will likely take the rest of this decade.

I am not sure if changing the name of the series in English is a good idea at this point
In the west it has been called Yakuza since the first game in 2005 .

it would be like calling the next Resident evil 9 " Biohazard "in the west suddenly .

Sure it is now the same as the series is called in Japan but it might make some people confused .

Sorry I was thinking it was a PS3 only game. But the game wasn't released Overseas.
I still think it's unlikeable that they remake games all the other games because as I said they have global releases that are playable on current gen consoles. Ishin justification maybe it's the lack of a global version and the inclusion of Zero, 6 and 7 chars.
