News from Space by SEGA?



2 Jun

Let’s start saying this is not a news, nor a review a preview or anything like that, this is not even about rumors. This are just few lines about something that made us think.

You will remember SEGA Kawaii, the brand new shop in Japan selling cool stuff and gadget all inspired by retro gaming like Dreamcast backpack and an inflatable Morolian (you know, the dancing aliens in Space Channel 5). This doesn’t mean anything, you know Japanese people loves gadget and retro gaming.

You will certain remember even the recent news about SEGA Spectrum, of course is still a mistery to everyone (probably even to SEGA), what is certain is that “A new world of entertainment” tickles our dead hopes. Nah, you silly, how can you even think to SEGA coming back to the hardware market??!

So today browsing Twitter we found out the existence of an official Space Channel 5 account, only in Japanese at the moment, with just a few tweets started on 21st of May. That’s not a great news, considering we can’t read Japanese (shame on us) is not even so interesting but… Why open an official account for a game ten years old? And why now?

We have no answer, and most probably nothing of this is connected, but we like to dream and SEGA was (is?) for sure a DREAMCASTER…

What is SEGA Spectrum?

28 May

The image above was posted by a NeoGAF user a while ago, but still nobody has a clue on what this mysterious SEGA Spectrum is.

For those who don’t speak Japanese, the text says “A new world of entertainment”, but it could be referred to everything. Starting with a long waited return of SEGA in the hardware market with a brand new console (which is highly unlikely) to some sort of digital platform for releasing arcade titles directly to the cabinet’s boards (similar to the one from Taito).

Everything is possible, and we’ll know the truth soon enough as the date points to June 6th, exactly during this year’s E3.
