Sega’s Toshihiro Nagoshi teases announcement of “something truly different” within next month

New title three years in production.

Sega’s Toshihiro Nagoshi teased the announcement of a new title within the next month on the latest Sega-Nama broadcast.

Asked by co-host Ayana Tsubaki if there will be a pause in news after the recent Yakuza Online announcement, Nagoshi said, “The [next Sega-Nama] broadcast after Tokyo Game Show will be a big one… We’ll discuss topics no one is going to expect.”

Tsubaki noted that Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio is generally either at the pre-Tokyo Game Show PlayStation press conference or has its own presentation each year, and that she expects something will be announced in the next month, to which Nagoshi said, “I understand that. The only hint I can say is that it is something truly different.”

Tsubaki asked if everyone will know about it within the next month, and Nagoshi responded, “That’s right. It’s a new title announcement that will turn things upside down.”

Nagoshi also mentioned that it has been about three years since the planning phase of this project, and re-confirmed that we will learn about it between now and the next Sega-Nama broadcast at the end of September.

Tokyo Game Show 2018 runs from September 20 to 23, so whatever Nagoshi is teasing might debut there, but it might also debut even earlier at Sony’s pre-Tokyo Game Show 2018 video live show on September 10.
