On the official SEGA of Japan recruitment website, SEGA further explained their “Super Game” 5-year plan. According to SEGA VP Shuji Utsumi, multiple games are being developed under the Super Game framework. These games meet four important criteria:
- Global multi-language support
- Planned for simultaneous worldwide release
- Classified as a “AAA” game
SEGA GM Katsuya Hisai confirms several of these games are in development with around 50 people involved for the initial stages from his department. Hisai expects the number of employees to increase into the several hundreds. A lot of development and logisitical talent are involved for the Super Game initiative.
SEGA producer Masayoshi Kikuchi says these titles could incorporate cloud technology and NFTs. Kikuchi explains that gaming has a “history of expanding through various cultures and technologies,” citing the integration of streaming and social networking. “We are also developing Super Game from a perspective of how far different games can be connected to each other,” Kikuchi states (Thanks, VGC).
The new Super Game project was initially believed to be one game but it’s clear that SEGA is investing into many games to come. Hopefully, there’s exciting content for SEGA fans to look forward to. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news and updates!
