The PlayStation 4 version of beloved strategy-role-playing game Valkyria Chronicles, previously announced for Japan, will also head west this spring, Sega announced today.
Series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi showed off some Yakuza 6 gameplay on a Sega stream last night. The upcoming installment of the under-appreciated series is a PS4 exclusive due out this fall in Japan. Who knows when it’ll get a western release?
More polygonal, too.
Nearly four years ago, Sega announced Phantasy Star Online 2 for western release. That still hasn’t happened. But at least we’re getting the anime?
Today on Facebook, you might have seen an exciting little news nugget in the corner of your homepage. “Dreamcast 2,” it read, “Sega Reportedly to Release New PC-Console Hybrid.”

Released in 2012 in Japan, Yakuza 5 finally made it to North American PlayStation 3 consoles last week, just in time for Sega to release this jaw-dropping trailer for the PlayStation 4 exclusive Yakuza 6.
The Yakuza series is one of the best in video games. Sad thing is, given their delayed localisation work and reputation for being a little...different, they’re also largely ignored by the wider gaming public. I’d love it if that could change.
Yakuza 5 arrives on PSN for the PS3 on Tuesday, December 8. The release date, confirmed during the PlayStation Experience keynote today, also comes with news of Yakuza 0 eventually coming to Western PS4 consoles.
What happens when you take music games Beatmania, Keyboard Mania, and Para Para Paradise and mix them into one game? You get the Sega music arcade game Chunithm.
Sega released a trailer yesterday for the new Hatsune Miku game, Project Diva X, but if you live in the United States, it’s blocked on YouTube. This isn’t new. Rather, it’s part of an unfortunate but increasingly predictable pattern of Japanese companies butting heads with the world’s largest video service.
It might have been the Dreamcast’s 16th birthday in America a few months back, but today actually marks the console’s full and proper 17th birthday, since it was on November 27, 1998 that the Dreamcast was first released in Japan.
What do Capcom, Sega, Bandai-Namco, and Nintendo all have in common? They all lend characters from some of their most popular franchises to team up in the mega-crossover, Project X Zone 2.
As Kotaku reported yesterday, there’s a new Valkyria game. We didn’t know much about the game. Now, we know a little more.
Sega is working on bringing Valkyria Chronicles IV to the PS4—along with a remastered version of the first game in the series, Valkyria Chronicles.
The Sega, Capcom and Bandai-Namco mega-crossover series returns—once again bringing you into a world where your fighting force includes the likes of Chun-Li. KOS-MOS, and Sanshiro Segata ...But I’ll probably just repeatedly use Phoenix Wright to kill enemies with paper work. Come join me!
Hardcore fans of Japanese virtual idol Hatsune Miku have already picked up a copy of Project Mirai DX for the 3DS—many even picked up a 3DS just to play it. What they probably don’t have is the Hatsune Miku Project Mirai Complete box set, packed with music, movies and toys.
