Several social media accounts for a SEGA project titled CSVRS have appeared, directing users to a teaser website (csmashvrs.com) with a countdown clock ending 20 days from now.
The teaser site for CSVRS presents trippy music over a grid of circles with different images appearing within, including eyes, tunnels and a game of Pong being played.

I Didn't Kill Dreamcast, Says Peter Moore (Former Sega Of America Boss)



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vg-Y3SSbSU

Quote
"I went over [to Japan] in January of 2001 [and] presented our numbers.
The writing was on the wall there, and Europe was kind of hanging on.
 I was told we're not going to be able to sustain producing hardware that's losing money because the attach rate isn't there.
I think we were selling at 199 dollars and probably costing closer to 250-260.
You need software attach rates, and it just wasn't there.
So the guys in charge there said, 'you know we're going to shut it down, and we're going to move to third party, and you're going to tell the world.'

I often get blamed for killing the Dreamcast. I didn't do that.
I did an interview where I said I had to make the call, meaning the telephone call, and people took that as [meaning] the decision.
It's one of the things I smile at when I still see stuff that goes on."

Atelier Marie: The Alchemist of Salburg getting a Switch remake
The first Atelier game reborn


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAfHby0zw74





Quote
Atelier Marie takes place in a fantasy medieval world of magic, however most people actually live quite ordinary lives.
As the grand adventures are left to the few chosen ones, the wide majority are content with their mundane lifestyles as long as there’s peace in the world.

Sega and Yoko Taro’s 404 Game Re:set reimagines Sega games as women









https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nuBoiCUfjho

Quote
THE MOBILE GAME HAS PLAYERS BATTLING SEGA TO RESTORE A WORLD IT CORRUPTED.

Yoko Taro, who serves as the game’s creative director, said: “It’s a game that features Sega’s IP, so I thought Sega should be in the game, but I didn’t think Sega would want to see a game that portrayed it well, so I portrayed it negatively.
“It’s a world that imagines that if things were to go well for Sega but then got out of control, it could end up like this.”
