The Japanese website 4Gamer has put up an article talking to Japanese video game developers from a wide range of companies on what to expect from them in 2018. It is basically a yearly tradition at this point. Sadly we only got one person interviewed from SEGA and that was Toshihiro Nagoshi, who has many hats at SEGA including Chief Creative Officer. This is what Toshihiro Nagoshi had to say about 2018:
“We still have some unannounced things. We have more surprises, so please look forward to it!”- Toshihiro Nagoshi
Sucks that he didn’t tease what these announcements could be or from what studio within SEGA they are coming from. Toshihiro Nagoshi’s own studio, Yakuza Studios, seems to have laid out its future recently at this year’s TGS with titles like Yakuza Kiwami 2 (Just released earlier this month in Japan), Hokuto ga Gotoku (comes out March 2018), Yakuza Online mobile game, and the barely teased Shin Yakuza title. I doubt these announcements are from the Yakuza Studio, but you never know. There was that financial report that stated SEGA wanted to revive major IPs on their road to 2020. Could we be seeing some of the first hints of this next year? What do you want to see SEGA announce for next year? Let us know in the comments below!

I’d line to ssee a new port or a brand new game of “phantasy star online” to ps3 or ps4. There are some years they dont show nothing about PS. How could a trully Pioneer on JRPG forget their masterpiece? Happy new year to everyone in SEGA, wishing they retourn to be #1 again!
On there road to 2020? I hope that what comes out in that time span is on multi platforms.
Shenmue HD please.
Yes, we need Shenmue 1&2 HD for sure!
The SEGA creatives interviewed in the special on 4gamer are many, eleven for precision.
A new Sega next gen
A new Sega console next gen
I wish, but you never know.
What do you mean ?
Well “you never know” means that Sega can or might come out with a new system within reason or it could just be games across multiple platforms, since the early turn of the century they haven’t made any console’s and decided to make games for all systems available, its just been a constant that they won’t make a new console but anything can happen.
A decent Phantasy Star single player experience, but I doubt that’ll happen. I’d like to see a Fighter Mash-up like Fighter’s Megamix again, too…
Again – fat chance.
Hopefully a Binary Domain sequel
