More Details About Re-Launching of Sonic Theme Parks

June 28, 2021

SEGA re-launched its theme park business earlier in June 2021, according to reports. It wasn’t clear if SEGA would use its video games as a theme, which was exciting news for gamers and theme park fans alike. Due to SEGA art director Kazuyuki Hoshino, people now know that a Sonic theme park is in the work
Sonic is also planning to turn its mascot into a Vtuber, as mentioned by Ryokutya2089. Kazuyuki Hoshino attributes the decision to expand into theme parks and virtual content to the success of Sonic the Hedgehog, a movie released last year. The exact source of these statements is unclear, but Ryokutya2089 frequently archives segments from physical publications like Famitsu and Weekly Shonen Jump. As a result, the statements may relate to the recent Famitsu article on Sonic 30th Anniversary.
How will a Sonic theme park differ from other theme parks? This park could be SEGA’s answer to Super Nintendo World, which offers various rides, amusements, and restaurants based on Mario. According to previous reports, SEGA could announce a UK location for a Sonic park by the end of 2021.
In the coming months, SEGA should reveal more information about its theme park plans. The SEGA theme park venture seems extremely likely at this stage, but we’ll need official confirmation on whether the parks will be based on the blue blur.

SEGA Is Planning To Revive Its Global Theme Park Business

June 4, 2021

SEGA has never had it better in a way. Its iconic mascot is not only a movie star, but it is also a powerful force in the video game industry. In contrast, Badnik Mechanic, a Sonic YouTuber, claims that SEGA desires to expand into theme parks.

SEGA plans to revive its global theme park business, according to reports. In a video discussing SEGA’s potential business plans, Badnik Mechanic reveals that the publisher has a memorandum of understanding (non-legal agreement) with Eidos.

An agreement appears to relate to a business venture that aims to launch theme parks in the United Kingdom, Europe, and North America.

In the ’90s, SEGA operated a chain of SEGA World theme parks. Although SEGA World still exists in Japan, its international chains have been short-lived. SEGA world is therefore exclusive to Japan at the moment, and focuses on virtual reality.

According to a report by CA Technology, described in Badnik Mechanic’s video, the group plans to develop CA SEGA JOYPOLIS in different countries with several partners in the PRC and abroad. According to the report, the group expects to select a new location in the UK “within approximately half a year.”. By the end of 2021, SEGA could announce a new theme park in the UK.

While SEGA is definitely working on something theme park-related, it is not exactly clear what the final outcome will be. SEGA may be hoping to create an experience similar to Super Nintendo World, but there’s no indication that the park will be themed around video game franchises so far. 

SEGA will hopefully reveal more about its theme park plans within the next few  months. Although the pandemic has affected the amusement park industry overall, SEGA may see success within the industry as global restrictions  begin to ease.

SEGA May Have Accidentally Revealed New Name For Sonic Game

May 31, 2021

SEGA may have accidentally revealed the name of its new Sonic game.
SEGA gave Sonic’s fans a sneak peek at Sonic’s next adventure on May 26th, 2021. In keeping with the company’s reputation for obscurity, SEGA gave the game a release date of 2022 as the only information they offered. Recent press releases, however, accidentally reveal the game’s name as Sonic Rangers.
SEGA listed some of Sonic Central’s highlights in its press release. SEGA’s new project is included on this list, which is unfortunate:
There is news on Sonic Colors: Ultimate and Sonic Rangers, as well as Sonic Prime and mobile news.
What exactly is Sonic Rangers? According to Twitter user PTKickass, it’s the title of SEGA’s next big Sonic game.
The title “Sonic Rangers” may still be a placeholder. Still, the game’s logo features a stylized “R,” which makes the title more likely. Resetara reports that the game will also be open-world.
While SEGA has accidentally referred to its new game as Sonic Rangers, the title has not been officially announced. SEGA told Eurogamer that the mention was from an “older version” of the press release, which was incorrectly shared.
As a result, its name could still change. For now, it’s best to take the rest of the Sonic rumors with a grain of salt.

Some Old Games Are Going to Become New Games at SEGA

May 15, 2021

It’s possible that SEGA is planning a revival of classic games like Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio.
The publisher’s plans were revealed as part of its financial presentation covering the year ending March 2021. While the meeting primarily focused on financial results, SEGA also included some information about its future plans in the industry.
The company is also working on multiple other projects over the next five years, including remakes and reboots of older classics. In a slide from the presentation, SEGA specifically mentioned the Crazy Taxi IP as one of the projects under consideration.
Even though Crazy Taxi is currently looking at making a return for new-gen consoles, it is hoped that it will return as part of the company’s older back catalog.
As well as Crazy Taxi, the company is also planning to bring back Jet Set Radio and Virtua Fighter, as well as other dormant classics.
Apart from using older assets, SEGA is also planning to release a new first-person shooter, which will be handled by a European studio.
A recent job listing at Creative Assembly details several roles pertaining to a brand new first-person shooter IP.
As you might expect, SEGA is also planning to strengthen its existing IPs to build a solid structure in three years.
In 2021, SEGA showed off Sonic, Phantasy Star Online, Persona, Yakuza and Total War as its focal series. Unfortunately, there have not been any new Sonic games since 2020, but the publisher has sold over 4.4 million Sonic games in the last year alone.
SEGA is bound to be busy in the next five years. Hopefully, the company will revisit its back catalog as well as create new experiences for next-generation hardware.
SEGA may surprise everyone with its new super game, bringing something entirely new to the gaming industry.
