Mega CD RPG Vay Coming to Steam July 2024

Monday, May 27th, 2024

An enhanced PC port of the 1993 Mega CD RPG Vay is coming to Steam in July 2024. Originally developed by SIMS and released exclusively in Japan and North America, this new PC port is based on an existing mobile port of Vay developed by SoMoGa and released on mobile devices in 2008.

You can wishlist the PC port of Vay on Steam right now. This new version is boasting newly updated looping music and bluetooth controller support. Outside of these updates it is largely an upscaled version of the Mega CD original, with new widescreen artwork for battles and a new high definition HUD during the overworld exploration.

This new PC port of Vay also has support for both Japanese and English spoken dialogue. It is currently unclear whether the English dub is from the 1994 Working Designs version or is newly recorded.

New Mobile RPG That Re-imagines Classic SEGA Franchises as Anime Girls Revealed, Collab With Yoko Taro

Saturday, February 11th, 2023

File this one under “Games We Weren’t Prepared For” – SEGA and Yoko Taro (of Nier fame) are collaborating on a new mobile RPG called 404 Game Re:set which re-imagines classic SEGA properties as anime girls.

Currently only scheduled for a Japan-only release (surprise, surprise), the game will launch later in 2023 on iOS and Android powered devices. You can view the App Store listing by clicking here or the Google Play store listing by clicking here.

The game’s premise seems to present SEGA as an evil corporation who now control everything, and the anime girls who represent the various SEGA properties are actually portrayed as evil. You can watch the 7 minute game reveal showcase for 404 Game Re:set in the embed below. Unfortunately this is only available in Japanese at the time of writing:

The game appears to also feature a gacha element as players who pre-register before release are rewarded with in-game “gems”. 404 Game Re:set will launch later in 2023 for iOS and Android devices.
