Sega’s timeless video gaming brochure has actually an exceptionally committed following, and it routinely benefits from this truth. The old-school Sonic the Hedgehog video games have actually seen more rereleases than one might count. And thanks to the myriad Genesis collections that have actually come out for many years, fans do not have to stress over its library possibly ending up being lost to time. More just recently, Sega has actually cranked out a lot of remakes and remasters of its most cherished video games, with Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania and the sadly substandard Sonic Colors Ultimate standing out as notable examples. It appears like Sega has plenty more where that originated from, as it intends to release several titles that fall under the “remake/remaster, spin-off [or] change of theme” classification in the future.
Sega exposed this news when discussing its incomes throughout the previous financial year, which ended on March 2022. According to the business, it handled to see increased benefit from video game sales compared to those of the 2021 financial year, and it anticipates that those earnings will increase even more by March 2023.
Profitable fond memories
Sega recommends that the “significant increase in titles” launched throughout 2021 contributed to this increase in earnings, and a noteworthy part of those video games fall under the previously mentioned “remake/remaster, spin-off [or] change of theme” classification. In the 2022 financial year, sales of video games in this classification amounted to around 4 million, which offers a clear reward for Sega to make more.
One can just question what type of remakes and remasters Sega presently has actually prepared. Of the possibilities, an easy HD remaster of Jet Set Radio Future would be among the most welcome, as that video game has actually stayed stuck on the initial Xbox since its release. Of course, such a release would just deserve it if it came out polished, which Sega does not constantly do regularly, to state the least.
