Naoya Tsurumi talks SEGA’s failures and future

He had a lot to say, so I will recap it in small points for easy digestion.

  • He is disapointed with sales of Mario & Sonic at the Vacouver Winter Games. It shipped 6.53 million units world wide, they expected to sell 7 million. North American sales are to blame.
  • Says bigger budget games are expanding in the West. “We won’t be focusing just on this market, but we are developing this type of title,” said Tsurumi. “Vanquish, being developed with Shinji Mikami, is a title that targets the North American and European market trend.”
