    I can't believe we're finally getting a dragon rising sim called Panzer Dragoon's Simulation Saga.

    I want a new Panzer Dragoon game :(

    Seems to be a Two Point Studios game (ex bullfrog/lionhead devs).

    It's sad, but they recently took the official English site down.

    I think one of the biggest reasons it will stay in Japan is because of all the sponsered events and items etc.

    I'm not holding my breathe here for anything good. It'll be something stupid like a Sonic Collection for the Switch or something.

    Apparently it will be their first game as the new studio.
    TBH I haven't heard of them until know, but apparently they are ex Lionhead devs and Frogger.

    I am 100% in on a Theme Hospital spiritual sequel, if that's what we're getting.

    Shinobi game please. I need something to make up for the loss of God of War. Bayonetta 3 is the base, DMC 5 would be half the cake, Ninja Gaiden 4 the other half and then Shinobi the icing.

    I wanted to share in the excitement at what the noted Clockwork Knight™ publisher is going to reveal.

    Seems like such a good news that I'm already expecting it to end up being a phone game.

    Sega fans seem to be stuck in the past too deeply. How can you be unhappy about a new sim from the former Bullfrog/Lionhead employees?

    I'm down for anyone trying a new theme hospital like game, spent hours playing the original on ps1 and rediscovered it last year when it was free on origin.

    When someone says Sega, the last thing I think is a Sim Hospital game :/

    At least we have a very safe Valkyria Chronicles 4 and Yakuza 6 to look this year

    Really?

    I mean, for years now, half their annual line-up has consisted of titles such as:
    - Total War
    - Warhammer Games
    - Endless Space
    - Football Manager and Motorsport Manager
    - RTS titles like Company of Heroes, Halo Wars, and Age of Empires

    This seems like a pretty straightforward fit.

    much to some people's shock, Sega has a profitable European division

    What are the chances that this lits a fire under Atlus ass to continue the Trauma games ? =(

    Oh wow, so it's (potentially) a Theme Hospital game? Hype! If they nail the comedy this could be a really big deal!

    Some of us are just have a different idea of sega, regardless of what stuff they make. Like I dont think of those games when I hear the name, Sega.

    zero since this will easily outsell all the Trauma games. maybe even combine

    It doesn't seem out of the ordinary for SEGA's PC catalog, but yeah, this is not my kind of genre.

    I'm aware of their European branch. It's just not my favorite Sega. I grew up with 90-00 Sega. It's not that hard to get why this doesnt excite me at all.

    But those aren't confirmed for west, are they?

    I encourage anyone who isn't sure about Theme Hospital to give it a chance. It was one of the best and funniest simulator games released for PC back in the day. I sunk an untold amount of hours into this game and it was a true classic. In fact, it still holds up extremely well today.

    https://www.gog.com/game/theme_hospital
    It has a 75% off deal right now and is $1.50.

    Now I'm hype. If it really is Theme Hospital and they nailed the humor and mechanics...

    Looking forward to the reveal. We need more sim games!

    That Sega died sometime in 2004. You had more than a decade to wake up and smell the coffee.

    Just announce a physical version of Sonic Mania and let the money flows in.

    I am really happy for fans of Theme Hospital.

    I am fine with SEGA releasing games like this, I actually really love Creative Assembly and Amplitude Studio's work! The problem is that most of SEGA's core fans do not associate them with games like this. Just look at the replies to the Tweets, everyone is replying expecting ports, localization announcements, etc.

    They need to tease their next PC port ASAP or else this shit will harm this new hospital game's PR.

    Nah. Yakuza, Puyo Puyo, Valkyria Chronicles 4, Sonic Mania, even stuff like Bayonetta 1, 2 and 3. SEGA's legacy is alive and well. Just because some of their Dreamcast franchises are not active does not mean the spirit of SEGA is gone.

    A spiritual sequel to Theme Hospital? oooooo

    Look at all the port begging in this thread :O
     
  46. Now I’m sad, thanks a lot man.

    Sega have manoeuvred themselves into a big player when it comes to PC strategy titles so publishing a hospital sim game makes sense.

    Now it's not the thing I immediately think of when it comes to the company as an old school Sega fan but I loved Theme Hospital as well so I can't complain.

    Yakuza, Valkyria Chronicles, Bayonetta (technically a Sega IP), Binary Domain, Sonic Mania never existed. It was just a collective dream we made back in 2004.
