SEGA Unveil Gamescom 2019 Lineup, Including “Unannounced AAA Title”

Tuesday, August 6th, 2019

SEGA has announced via PR their lineup for Gamescom 2019, taking place in Germany on August 20th-24th.

On show at the event will be Catherine: Full Body (PS4), the recently confirmed console ports of Two-Point Hospital (Switch, PS4, Xbox One), and the Mega Drive Mini. In addition however, SEGA will also be showing a new ‘AAA’ title to the public for the first time. It’s completely up in the air as to what this could be, though it may be worth noting an event is planned in Japan for August 29th to divulge new information on the next Yakuza title, starring new protagonist Ichiban Kasuga. But with this being a European expo, it might be better to expect something from SEGA’s PC-centric divisions, such as a new RTS title.

Time will tell, but we’re looking forward to seeing what SEGA’s adding to its already loaded arsenal of upcoming titles.

Mega Drive Mini Delayed in Europe and Middle East, Now Launching October 4th

Monday, July 29th, 2019

SEGA fans in Europe and the Middle East will have to wait a bit longer to get their miniature dose of Blast Processing, as SEGA has announced the mini-console will be launching two weeks later in these regions than originally planned – now it’ll release on October 4th.

SEGA has cited “unavoidable logistical challenges” for the date change. Whilst unfortunate, two weeks extra isn’t too long too wait, and they’ve given plenty of advance notice this time around. The American, Japanese and presumably Asian releases of the console are still set for September 19th.
