    Rumor: SEGA and Disney Working Together on New Mobile Game

    SEGA and Disney are reportedly working together on a brand-new mobile game, according to reputable SEGA and ATLUS insider Midori (@MbKKssTBhz5). The game is planned to release on mobile platforms in 2025, if the rumor turns out to be true.

    In 2024, Midori corroborated Persona 3 Reload datamines that suggested The Answer will be DLC. These Persona 3 Reload rumors turned out to be true, including the Expansion Pass and Episode Aigis -The Answer-. Additionally, the insider also claimed that Virtua Fighter reboot is currently in development at SEGA, with key Virtua Fighter staff being involved. As many have guessed, the reboot is part of SEGA’s Super Game initiative, which includes Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio reboots and remakes. 

    According to Midori, SEGA is considering a remake of Sonic Heroes in Unreal Engine 5. However, Midori states that SEGA is not developing any Sonic Adventure remakes at the moment, and a release window for any of potential titles was not confirmed. Midori also notes that SEGA wants most of their franchises to transition into Unreal Engine 5 so that developers gain experience with different engines. 

    Upcoming SEGA IP remakes such as Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio will use Unreal Engine 5. However, SEGA engines such as Dragon Engine and Hedgehog Engine 2 will still be used in future games. It’s unknown what other games in the SEGA ecosystem could be running on Unreal Engine 5, but it will likely include more remakes and reboots in the future.
