Japan: Tech journalist teases “huge scoop” that’s related to SEGA

The next edition of Japanese gaming magazine Weekly Famitsu which is due on 4th June will apparently contain a “revolutionary” scoop which will “rile up the games industry.” It was said that this announcement is now confirmed to be related to SEGA and is apparently on the level of Wired’s first PlayStation 5 reveal article. The timing coincides with the company’s 60th anniversary. Here’s what was said:

“My column in next week’s issue of Famitsu is crazy. I got a huge scoop… It’s a world premiere article. And an exclusive. It may not be Nikkei or Weekly Bunshun, but if you want to know if it’s a scoop that big…it totally is! It’s a scoop from a game company that everyone loves. An insane scoop. Last year, Wired got the exclusive story on PlayStation 5, right? Other media didn’t. It’s that level of a scoop. I interviewed a certain company’s executive and technical staff, it’s really revolutionary… really, it’s a revolution.

It’ll be in Famitsu next Thursday. I already sent in my manuscript, so the proofs are being made now. It’s a scoop on a level that when the story comes out, other media will make a fuss to the company like, “Why didn’t you let us cover it?” Maybe people will say, “Who was the first to break that story?,” “It was Zenji Nishikawa, right?” It’s a scoop as major as the PlayStation 5 scoop. I just wanted to say that in advance.

I can’t say [anything more] here, but it’s OK for me to tease it (laughs). I was told that it’s OK to do so at various meetings. It’s being talked about in other places. Just not by the media. It’ll rile up the games industry.”

  1. Oh boy another announcement of an announcement that was supposed to announce the Sonic series future.

  2. I want Sonic adventure, sonic adventure 2, sonic heroes, shadow the hedgehog (2005 game), sonic riders, sonic advance trilogy, sonic battle (game boy advance game), sonic unleashed, sonic the fighters, sonic R, sonic and Sega all stars racing, Sonic and all star racing transformed, sonic rush, sonic generations, sonic colors, sonic boom shattered crystal, and sonic boom fire and ice ported to Nintendo switch in the Untied States as digital downloads.

  3. Very skeptical that its a console, but I really can’t think of anything else it could be that would be big news. Sega movie universe maybe?

  4. Maybe since the Sonic movie was so successful at the box office that they are going to do a live-action, adult spin-off movie or Netflix series starring Shadow?
