SEGA recently released their stage event plans for Tokyo Game Show 2016, which begins today in Japan. Gematsu translated the event descriptions for the many stage events that will be held this week.
In their announcement, SEGA posted streaming options for each day throughout September 15-18, including Niconico, YouTube, and AbemaTV. Incidentally, it seems that some of the stage events (including those that feature SEGA Hard Girls, Phantasy Star Online 2, Persona 5, and Puyo Puyo Chronicle) don’t allow photography from non-media attendees. Sad news if any of our readers are attending!
But of course, being able to attend Tokyo Game Show 2016 sounds like great fun as well. For those who are planning on enjoying the news from a distance, we’ve included the streaming links on YouTube below for each of the four days.
As part of the 17th entry into the Game Symphony Japan Concert Series, GSJ has announced a new and familiar performance concept – the SEGA Special 2016! Set for July 17th of this year, it features many songs from the Sonic the Hedgehog, NiGHTS into Dreams…, Puyo Puyo, Sakura Wars, and Space Channel 5 franchises. This event continues Game Syphony Japan’s performances of SEGA-themed music.
Seating tickets are separated into three classes. S class seating costs ¥8,500, A class seating costs ¥7,500, and B class seating costs ¥6,500. Special musical guests include Tomoya Ohtani, Takenobu Mitsuyoshi, and Jun Senoue. The venue will be the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre in Ikebukuro, Tokyo.
Sega is celebrating Sonic’s 24th Anniversary with a big sale on Playstation Store in North America discounting a large assortment of Sonic games and DLC content, as well as select Sega titles such as Daytona USA, NiGHTS into Dreams and Yakuza 4. The sale will end next Tuesday, June 30th.
The newest edition of the PSO2 Live Broadcast aired not too long ago. While it announced plenty of news regarding game elements such as Scratches, Quests, and the Casino, I’d like to take a moment to focus on this broadcast’s announcement of Sega collaboration content. Phantasy Star Online 2 is no stranger to promotion with franchises outside of Sega ownership, of course, but I personally think it’s nice to see Sega celebrating the franchises and people within the company.
The featured image shown above describes Scratch content for Shining Resonance. This includes weapon skins, character accessories, and costumes themed after Yuuma, Sonia, Kirika, Rinna, and Marion. Voice clips or “tickets” will also be available for these characters, too. This content is planned for release in the middle of June.
