SEGABits @ New York Comic Con 2013 Panel Video: SEGA Through The Years

Hello SEGABits readers, Kori-Maru here back from my trip from New York Comic Con with coverage of SEGA and Hardlight Studios panel titled “SEGA Through Out The Years” with special guests from SEGA attending the panel such as Ethan Einhorn, Chris Olsen, and Masayoshi Kikuchi-san as they explain SEGA’s history, focus on mobile, a few announcements, and the company’s future followed by Q/A and trivia contest. During the Q/A session, there were a lot of interesting questions from the audiences that may interest a lot of SEGA fans, so stay tuned for that. I also have tons of pictures of a few SEGA cosplayers and employees for our readers to look at. To view the video of the panel and pictures from the convention, hit the jump!

    Mmmm…I don’t feel like you should be asking Sega Sakura Wars questions/requests.

    The localization of the fifth game and other media deals was arranged by RED Entertaiment. Even off-shot mobile and browser games didn’t any involvment of SEGA.

    Wow. That’s a video of the whole conference. I’ll take a look at it later.

    And to Trippled, I don’t see why Sega wouldn’t be a relevant party to ask about regarding Sakura Wars localization. Their comments indicate that they realize they are indeed a relevant party. Unless you’re suggesting that RED is a better entity to speak to regarding localization (considering the history you cited in the form of what they did/do), but even then my guess is it’s much harder for us as non-Japanese Sega fans to get an audience with RED entertainment. Sega does still own the IP, and as for the offshoot games, Sega just isn’t developing any SW games themselves like they did up until SWV. I don’t think it changes Sega’s role in the franchise.

    Anyway, thanks Kori-Maru.
