FromSega, more remasters and remakes are on the way

Sega has just released its financial results for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2022, and on top of reporting impressive earnings for the past year, it notes that it will continue to focus on releasing additional remakes and remasters.

Sega is willing to invest 100 billion yen (environ $775 million) in the global games market, which is now expanding. The publisher outlines the term "Entertainment Contents Business" as the future''s most important growth area.

The Japanese company anticipates to launch some 13 games in the coming financial year (that''s March 2022, from March 2023). It expressly wishes to see a significant increase in new titles.

What could they be? We already know what five of them are: Sonic Frontiers, Sonic Origins, Soul Hackers, Two Point Campus, and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim for the Nintendo Switch, which you should all play. That leaves another eight games to begin in the next eight months.

At the end of the year, there will likely be a new Football Manager to Sega''s roster, but Creative Assembly is expanding its franchise since at least 2019. When the developer revealed that movie director Neill Blomkamp had visited the studio to see the project.

Given the success of Persona 5 Strikers, Shin Megami Tensei 5, and the Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne remaster over the past year, you''d think Sega would be keen to capitalize on the series'' unstoppable momentum. There have already been whispers of a Persona 3 Portable remaster for many platforms let''s see if that appears to be true.

Atlus celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Persona series, so it stands to be clear that the developer wants something big to commemorate the occasion. In June, the next big announcement for the anniversary will be announced.
