Rumor The big SEGA announcement is another exclusivity deal with Nintendo

Not too long ago, SEGA and Nintendo entered into a 3 game exclusive deal. This is the only thing that gives me any kind of inking that this rumour could have some weight, although if the date aligns with the PlayStation event you can't be sure. Nintendo don't seem to want to be a direct rival to Sony but a second console that you have for portable gaming and exclusives, not as your main console or perhaps home console because the switch will only ever run mildly improved last generation quality versions of current generation games. In the next generation Nintendo I don't think will have any current gen unless drastic cuts are made or we get that switch Pro or even successor.

This appeared on Reddit a few hours ago. Please take it with a pinch of salt.

Let me be VERY clear: what I'm writing is second-hand information, but it is credible and makes sense.

You may have seen this article: https://www.express.co.uk/entertain...GA-announcement-teased-rile-up-games-industry

This is inaccurate. SEGA has not patented any new hardware/console name.

You also may have seen the rumor floating around that Microsoft has aquired SEGA. This, too, is untrue.

What I have heard so far:

Persona 5 WILL be released on Switch

A new Sonic & Mario platformer will be announced this Fall

Alien Isolation's sequel will be coming to the Switch (and it most likely will be a top-down shooter)

Sonic Team is being rebuilt

Persona 1-4 will be released later on in 2020, followed by Persona 5 and 5s for Holiday

Shin Megami Tensei's DS games will be ported to the Switch

A new IP called "Stranlove: Chronicles of The Order" will be announced in September of 2021

Link

I can't say I'm 100% convinced but then Nintendo and SEGA have come to arrangements before today.

I wouldn't want Sega making games exclusively for Switch, but I do want them to have mostly platform exclusives (yakuza games on Sony, M&S on Nintendo, maybe have MS exclusives like on OG XB)

This rumor is sound more like those countless port begging tweets over twitter.

Anyway its not new a partnership between Sega and Nintendo, but can't say anything good came out of it. Sonic Lost and Boom were example of that.

This is "really revolutionary"? This is on "PS5 Wired exclusive level"?

Seriously, if this is true, F*** this guy.

Yeah, I really don’t care about any of this, lol.

Hopefully it’s something that will bring a lot of fun and happiness to gamers.

I don't care about any of this but it's about time we get Persona games on PC so I can finally play them.

SMT DS games on switch would be sweet too, I'd definitely get Devil Survivors games if they come with Japanese voices, it's 2020 and I don't see how this is not standard yet considering the target audience for jrpg :(

How about this for fantasy shit:

AAA 3D Sonic game that uses next-gen tech to let you run around the world at actual Sonic speeds, fast travel is slower than normal travel in this game!

Sonic Team being rebuilt is all that really matters (way past due). Well, I suppose handheld Persona games are noteworthy, but I’ve already been there done that (true of most every port the Switch gets).

:messenger_ok: Perfect N title.


Me and my girlfriend once played Seaman for an hour or two and we didn't know you had to hold A to use the dreamcast microphone, plus I don't think he talks for quite a while in the game lol

We were sitting together talking to a dreamcast controller for hours and it was all pointless :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Really wish they would port it so we can play on Switch lol

After how awkward the Wii U exclusive era was this seems strange, they've been making bank on being multiplatform again and been getting extra revenue from ports.

I wouldn't want to play P5 on the Switch, since it's already got a PS4 Pro version... but P4 Golden? Oh, hell yes. And the other SMT games. Wish they'd fucking bring Nocturne and DDS over, though.

That wouldn't "rile up games industry".

So either this is fake as shit, or that jorunalist called his career done.

A bunch of games is supposed to be revolutionary and rile up the industry ?

This looks more like a port-beg from anything Atlus for the Switch.

Well, Famitsu are known to overhype things. This seems like the level of announcement that would be significant, except waaaay less so than the journalist implied. Just seems so strange to announce this near the PS5 event, so I'm going to go with false on this one. I think the announcement is likely to have something to do with Sony. Probably a SEGA game that's PS5 exclusive (and not Yakuza, since MS seems to want that game on their platform).
