Sega plans to release more remakes and remasters

By Sean Carey,

Sega plans to release a "significant" number of titles throughout its next financial year, including new titles, remakes, and remasters of classic games, all of which will launch before April 1st 2023.

Detailing its FY2022 results in a presentation (thanks, VGC), Sega parent company Sega Sammy revealed that it had a pretty strong year in regards to sales of its consoles and PC games, reporting increased profits over the FY2021.

Sega to release multiple remakes, remasters, and spinoffs before April 1st, 2023

Looking forward, the company is predicting higher sales figures for its 2023 financial year, which Sega says will be driven by the release of "multiple" new titles that it describes as "remake/remaster, spin-off [or] change of theme." Sega says in FY2022, it sold around 4 million units in these categories, citing Sonic Colours: Ultimate, Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, and Yakuza spinoff Lost Judgment. For FY2023, Sega predicts it will ship approximately 5 million units, which includes the controversial Sonic Origins, launching on June 23rd, Sonic Frontiers, and Soul Hackers 2.

Over the course of the last financial year, Sega released seven titles that had simultaneous global launches across multiple platforms, resulting in approximately 6 million unit sales. For FY2023, it expects to reach 13 million unit sales by releasing 13 titles with simultaneous global launches.

It's been rumoured that Sega is working on "big-budget reboots" of Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio, so it seems that Sega is interested in doing something with the classic IP it has tucked away. However, it's unlikely that these two will release within the next year as they are reportedly still in early development. We could also see some Persona titles make their way to Xbox, as developer Atlus, which is owned by Sega, has put out a survey asking fans if they would like to see Persona on Xbox consoles.
