I’ll start off with the one that is the most shocking. You might remember a while ago that SEGA trademarked the name Kingdom Conquest. Well, it turns out that Kingdom Conquest is SEGA’s first iPhone MMO and freenium game. A freenium game means that the app is free, but you have to pay for in game items and content. Kingdom Conquest is part hack n’ slash and part city building according to SEGA.
The second new announcement is Chu Chu Rocket. Chu Chu Rocket will be SEGA’s first iOS game to support Apple’s Game Center.
Among other new iPhone game announcements is Altered Beast and Gunstar Heroes. SEGA also hinted at more announcments coming later today on twitter.
[Update] SEGA just updated their twitter with new info. Chu Chu Rocket has all of the DC levels, multiplayer for up to 4 devices via Bluetooth/WiFi, and the iPad version will have 4 player multiplayer on same device.

I hope Kingdom Conquest is a sequal to the N-Gage game Pocket Kingdom… Which was basically Dragon Force, the MMORPG.
Which… Was something I always dreamed of. But not for the N-gage.
EDIT: Holy shit… Chu Chu Rocket!!!
WHY IS ALL OF THIS AWESOME STUFF NOT COMING TO THINGS I OWN?!?!?!?
wow I'd like to check out that chu chu rocket online mode lol. SOUNDS AWESOME!!!!!!!
I look forward to it. I also think Game Center is going to be big.
(Interesting to see Apple ripping off Microsoft for a change)
Not many games support it now, but based on how many games constantly give you free updates, I expect it to have a lot of games soon, and not just new ones.
If you want to find me, on Game Center, my name is,,, wait for it… Emmett The Crab
