SEGA shares part of their TGS 2011 line-up

Its nothing new that companies share a gaming event’s line-up early. It happens every year, the only issue is that they have games they are saving to announce closer to the event. This time around is no different, stuff like Black Panther 2 , Yakuza 5 or Valkyria Chronicles 3 Extended don’t appear in the list.

Confirmed to be there:

  • Binary Domain (PS3/360)
  • Rhythm Thief & The Emperor’s Treasure (3DS)
  • Hatsune Miku Project Diva Extend (PSP)
  • Phantasy Star Online 2 (PC)
  • 7th Dragon 2020 (PSP)
  • Anarchy Reigns (PS3/360)
  • Sonic Generations (PS3/3DS)
Even weirder, stuff like Shinobi 3DS, CRUSH 3D and Guardian Heroes seems to be missing. What is up with that?

Hatsune Miku will cameo in 7th Dragon 2020

Famitsu had a pretty nice article on the upcoming PSP RPG 7th Dragon 2020. First is the release date, which is October 27th.

Next is a cameo by Project Diva star Hatsune Miku, who will be in the game. She is being called “Hatsune Miku 2020”. Shirou Miwa, character designer for 7th Dragon 2020 will draw the in-game version of Hatsune Miku, to fit the game’s unique art style.

She will also be singing SeventH-HeaveN from sasukure.UK. Which will be on the official 7th Dragon 2020 website tomorrow.

SEGA developing 7th Dragon sequel, this one on PSP

1up reports, via Famitsu, that Imagepoch is developing a sequel to the DS RPG 7th Dragon, which never saw release in North America. Called 7th Dragon 2020, the follow-up is looking to take place in a futuristic version of Tokyo, a contrast to the original game’s more medieval style. The game is said to feature a revamp in art direction and character design, and will supposedly release this year.

SEGA will once again be publishing it, though since they never localized the first 7th Dragon, chances of the West getting this one seem pretty slim.
