Sega is planning a 'revival of major IPs' as a new business plan

A lot of IPs should be revived, Shining Force, Street of Rage, Shinobi, Sakura Taisen just to name a few.

Square Enix should revive Taito classics too.

Sega is planning a 'revival of major IPs' as a new business plan - Comix Zone?

Capcom has done it, Square Enix has been doing it, and now Sega is getting on board.

According to their "Road to 2020" plan (which has some other interesting tidbits if you care to comb it over), Sega is planning a "revival of major IPs" as one of their means of survival beyond their mobile arm and their existing successful IPs, which Sega lists most prominently as Yakuza, Football Manager, Persona, and Total War.

What IPs they're actually re-introducing is anyone's guess, but it's crazy to think of how many classic, now defunct series that they've worked on. I mean you have Columns, Comix Zone, Vectorman, Streets of Rage, Nights, Burning Rangers, and Guardian Heroes to name a few.

Sega also plans to rebuild existing arcades in Japan, push further into the animation and toy field, and re-launch some pachinko machine IPs. If you're remotely interested in what's going on at the company, give it a once over.

Hmm, my bets are Sakura Wars, Streets of Rage and Phantasy Star.

Yeah Phantasy Star...

So worldwide release of Phantasy Star Online 2 is still pending right?

Just hand over Shinobi to Platinum Games.

I'd kill for a REAL Phantasy Star. None of this online nonsense. And please, make these games on real consoles, not portables only. Make physical editions.

I would rather Platinum Games doesn't handle Shinobi. They are kind of hit and miss, really. Sometimes really good, most of the time... average to kinda OK.

Fuck Sukura. I don't give a shit about anime.
