SEGA is reportedly teaming up with NieR creator Yoko Taro for a new mobile RPG. They began streaming a teaser trailer for their next smartphone game, which will be playable on iOS and Android.
As a smartphone begins to malfunction in the footage. Before falling to the ground, the phone’s screen displays the messages “Szseyo akarui mirai wo” (Let’s build a bright future) and “Sega wo korose” (Kill Sega). The video continues with the Sega logo filling the cities of Tokyo, New York, Taipei, and Paris.
At the end of the video, we see a message from Sega itself on a damaged smartphone that says “We have a message for the people” using the word “Kokumin” for “the people” which politicians often use to refer to citizens. I don’t know about you, but this feels highly dystopic to me, especially combined with the futuristic imagery and the surveillance cameras.
A few pieces of information did emerge online prior to the big reveal. Since then, the company has released the first teaser trailer for the future game and built a new website. However, the currently accessible teaser trailer does not reveal Yoko Taro’s involvement or the entire title of the game.
However, in an odd turn of events, SEGA first broadcast the incorrect version of the premiere video, which disclosed the future game’s title and description, which was said to be 404 GAME RE: SET (ERROR GAME RESET)
We don’t know much about the game other than its title right now, save that it will be on mobile devices. We’ll have to wait until Friday to find out what the announcement is all about. Of course, whenever the game is released, you can report back here for the latest updates.
