Today Sega released a brand new overview of its own performance for the financial year ended in March 2018, additionally including its company plan for the present fiscal year. It included several tidbits which weren’t said at the fiscal results announcement published a week.
First of all, we receive an update about the imports of Persona 5, that have been 2.2 million copies globally by March 31st. 2018. Seemingly, 200,000 units were offered since November’s announcement.
We also understand that Sonic Mania, Sonic Forces, and also the Total War series “performed closely” during the last financial year.
In addition to this, “new names” have been in development for the Sonic franchise, whilst Yakuza Online for PC and cellular will start before the end of this financial year, which means by March 31st, 2019. Shin Megami Tensei V for Nintendo Switch is mentioned as “in pipeline” so a discharge by March 31st is not confirmed for the moment. The exact same is said about the recently-revealed new IP from the Yakuza Studio, but we get a further verification of its development.
VanillaWare’s 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim has been supported for 2018, actually when we haven’t heard much about it of late.
