SEGA FES 2019 Announced, Hits Japan March 30th-31st

Friday, January 25th, 2019

SEGA’s very own fan-festival SEGA FES is returning once again, with the 2019 event taking place in Japan on March 30th and 31st. This year it’ll be held at the Bellesalle Akihabara in Tokyo. Entry is free for anyone who wants to attend (though we imagine most of our readers will need to factor “plane ticket to Japan” into that).

Last year’s SEGA FES saw some pretty sizeable announcements, including the SEGA Mega Drive Mini, a new Sakura Wars title, Shemue I&II HD, the SEGA AGES series for Nintendo Switch and more. What’s lined up in terms of panels and such this year is yet to be announced, but it’s something for SEGA fans of all kinds to get excited for, and we’ll keep you updated with scheduling announcements and such when they become available.
