Say what you will about Sega and their treatment of the Sonic franchise, but the truth is that the famed publisher and one time console maker just happens to be one of the few big boys is still taking chances and bringing that special flavor of Japanese quirk westward. It’s Sega who brought the revolutionary strategy title Valkyria Chronicles to English speakers. Sega who responded to fan feedback and continued to deliver the Yakuza series despite soggy sales. Sega who gave the stylish action mavens Platinum Games their shot with MadWorld, Vanquish, and Bayonetta. And who gave us a Japanese made, Blade Runner-styled shooter that let you actually talk to your teammates via a microphone AND included a French robot? Yep, Binary Domain was published by Sega. And where did listening to fans and giving us something to play beyond Call of Honor V: Shoot ‘Em in the Face get Sega? Bupkis.
Sega also seems unable to market their way out of a paper bag, but that’s a whole ‘nother story…
Anyway, you’ll have to forgive Sega for being a bit cagey when it comes to bringing more of that takoyaki-flavored fun Westward. Still, bless ‘em, Sega is continuing to listen to fan feedback. Their latest venture up for consideration? The very, very Japanese music rhythm game Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F, starting the world famous Vocaloid idol and all her virtual friends.
