Last year turned out to be a tough one for most Japanese game companies. With natural and nuclear disasters and economic downturns, it's been a rough year all around. In Weekly Famitsu, several game companies have announced their year-end performance and plans for 2012.
Times are tough. Sega Sammy knows. The company has released its 2008 fiscal results, posting a loss for the second year straight.
There are rumors that Sega Sammy Holdings now owns the rights to Guilty Gear, the flashy fighting franchise from developer Arc System Works. Game site Gamasutra tries to find out if they are true.
