And now the latest news...

The biggest CA SEGA JOYPOLIS was built in GuanZhou,China



In 2017, China Animations has acquired a majority stake in Sega Live Creation for 600 million yen.
After the ownership transitioned, China Animations renamed Sega Live Creation to CA Sega Joypolis Ltd, with Sega no-longer fully owning the parks.
The 3 Orbi venues remained under the ownership of Sega, and Sega Republic was later closed down after the Sega license expired.
Now four years later, the biggest CA SEGA JOYPOLIS will open this September 2021 !!!

So Joypolis is no longer owned by Sega... but will still have Sega's name and I pressume Sonic and other marketing?

Also, is it true that UK will get a Joypolis? Sounds like a Sega World UK all over again.

"Sega no-longer fully owning the parks"

so I think SEGA is still owning it, but just a small portion of ownership of course since majority ownership goes to China Animation.

A potential location for the UK park is currently being sourced, operator reveals.
So I guess it might happened.
Article :

Sega Joypolis theme parks could be coming to the UK and US



Quote
“The Group is planning to develop CA SEGA JOYPOLIS in different places over the world with several partners in the PRC and the overseas,” the report reads.
“As for the overseas market, the Group has entered a memorandum of understanding with another international partner to select a location for launching theme park in the UK within approximately half a year and explore the possibility to launch theme parks in Europe, North America and elsewhere.”

About GENDA (Global Entertainment Network for Dreams and Aspirations) and SEGA



GENDA Co. is a Japanese entertainment corporation whose primary focus is on developing an “amusement” machine rental business, online crane machines, promotional sales, and business between the Chinese and United States markets.
GENDA held 85.1% of Sega Entertainment shares as of December 3, 2020, which means the voting rights for Sega Group‘s ownership ratio over Sega Entertainment now are 14.9%.
Additionally, Sega Entertainment was no longer be part of Sega Group’s consolidated subsidiaries.

It does not mean SEGA is leaving the arcade business.
SEGA will continue to develop and manufacture arcade games, as that division is still 100% owned by the SEGA Corporation and is separate from SEGA Entertainment.
SEGA will continue to make arcade games, this news just means they won’t be managing the arcade buildings.
SEGA has also said, via Famitsu, that SEGA will continue to develop arcade titles, but will shift some of its arcade development staff to the console business.

About SEGA Amusements International Ltd. (SAI) and Management Buy Out



Sega Amusements International (SAI) is an international company dedicated to the production, development, supply, support and distribution of amusement arcade games and merchandise.
Here on the other hand, instead of being sold to a bigger company in the space, it was bought from within and will give SEGA Amusements International (SAI) more freedom.
Paul William has setup Kaizen Entertainment as a holding company and initiated a “Management Buy Out” of SAI through that.
What this means is that everything that distributors, operators, and players see will remain the same – the Sega name will still show up on the games, and SAI will still be the name found on the booth at trade shows.
This also means that everyone who has been working at SAI is still there.

Oooooooohhoooohoo! I would love to go!

I recall telling you how crap UK arcades are usually are... at least the arcades I've been to. Never been a major cities arcade but I imagine it's just gambling machines.

It' a pity. Never went to Japan let alone Ikebukuro, but I always thought it was cool for Sega to have that piece of Ikebukuro all to themselves... until September.

About SEGA SAMMY CREATION



SEGA SAMMY CREATION is a gaming machine manufacturer that utilizes its wealth of creativity, entertainment experience and technology to produce products that offer new and exciting experiences.
Their latest creation was Genesis Crest. Read more about it here.
To be frank, gaming machine is just a convenient words for what we know as "gambling machine" or "slot machines" that creates a game of chance for its customers.
Gaming machines can be found in bars, gas stations, small convenience stores, arcade centers, and bodegas in some countries that allowed it, like Singapore, UK, or USA.
My country, Indonesia, never allow anything related to gambling, so I never seen any of them here. I know that they still exist here, but illegally.
