The Game Awards 2023 are over and I'm going over some of the interesting bits that were announced, like SEGA deciding to just go nuts.
SEGA decided to come along in style and blow away all expectations announcing not one, not two — but five new games in development and all are modern takes on some true classics including Jet Set Radio, Shinobi, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, and Crazy Taxi.
“In recent years, Sonic the Hedgehog has forged new paths for SEGA, bringing the franchise to life and reaching new audiences in ways we had only dreamed of in the past. Building off that success, we are digging into our legacy and reimagining several franchises to bring these games to more audiences around the globe,” says Co-COO of SEGA Corporation and CEO of SEGA of America, Shuji Utsumi. “Today's announcement is just the start of our initiative. First and foremost, our ambition will be to create great games with memorable characters and worlds. We hope fans of all ages will look towards our future with anticipation as we release these projects in the coming years.”
Naturally, thanks to Valve's Steam Play Proton, it's likely all of them will be playable on Linux / Steam Deck on or shortly after release in some form.
Are you as excited as I am?
