Sega Fes 2019 set for March 30 to 31
What announcements are planned for this year?

Sega will host Sega Fes 2019 from March 30 and 31 at Bellesalle Akihabara in Tokyo, Sega announced.

If you missed it last year, Sega Fes 2018 saw various announcements, including:

Sega Ages titles announced for Switch
Sega Mega Drive mini announced
Shenmue I & II announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC
New Sakura Wars announced
Border Break for PlayStation 4 dated for August 2, 2018 in Japan
Valkyria Chronicles coming to Switch Fall 2018 in Japan
Valkyria Chronicles 4 for Switch delayed to Fall 2018 in Japan

Visit the Sega Fes 2019 official website here.

So last year we thought nothing of note was going to happen - and then it turned out to be Sega's biggest event in recent memory with some megaton announcements like the Megadrive mini and Shenmue HD. Is it finally time for Virtua Fighter 6? Will something Jet Set Radio related be announced given they name checked it last year?

We'll find out soon. Hopefully Sega will attempt to equal last year which is the closest they've come to having their own E3 conference in over a decade. Engage hype thrusters.

Well this thread is on fire, lol. Guess we're quite far out so those hype thrusters are on pause for now.

Just a heads up but there has been some Jet Set Radio related rumblings and movement as of recently - and as I said it did place very highly in Sega's popularity poll last year so Sega are aware of the demand. I think in a universe where we have sequels to much-loved previously dormant Sega legacy IPs anything is possible. Ports of JSR and JSRF at the minimum if not an entirely new game.

No chance in hell it'll be done by a Sega internal studio however. It'll be an external studio/Western developer (Wonder Boy revivals, Streets of Rage 4, Panzer Dragoon Remakes etc.).

Really interested in potentially more Sega Ages announcements.

It would also be nice to get more information on the Genesis Classic, and maybe even some gameplay.

News on Shin Yakuza has been thin on the ground hasn't it? Would be nice if something gets shown.

I have a weird feeling that it entered development hell, and that Judgment/Judge Eyes is the new direction the series has taken.

I would like to be proven wrong though.

Someone involved with the series recently gave the traditional "Please look forward to x game" line with regards to Shin Yakuza in an interview, so hopefully it's still on track.


My fingers are crossed for:
  • Shin Yakuza trailer
  • Rest of SEGA AGES Lineup
  • Sakura Wars footage
  • A teaser with in-engine footage for the Panzer Dragoon remake
  • Release date + western confirmation for the Virtual-On trilogy
  • And for the "pie in the sky" wildcard, seeing something happen with Shining Force would be great.

Anything past that is gravy!

I'm hoping for Sakura Wars news as well. Also keeping my fingers crossed for a port of the older games, preferably with a US release, but that's wishful thinking on my part.

More wishful thinking: super surprise Panzer Dragoon Saga port/remake. One can dream...
