It took a record breaking Kickstarter and almost 15 years of fan demand for SEGA to realise that it has a rich legacy that deserves celebrating. In the wake of Shenmue III's reveal, the Japanese publisher has said that it's "looking into" bringing the first two titles in the series to the PlayStation 4. Doesn't the company know that keeping us waiting like this has been way uncool?
"We want to innovate and back smart phones and virtual reality, but our key purpose is to go back to what the brand used to stand for," European marketing director Jon Rooke told Marketing Week. "I think that the buzz around Shenmue III shows that people love our legacy. Over the next few years, we want to use engaging content and marketing to remind the public why they fell in love with SEGA in the first place."
SEGA has such an impressive back catalogue that it's been mind boggling to see the company abandon it over the past decade. Now that the firm appears to be back on track, though, we'll take a new Virtua Fighter, Jet Set Radio, and SEGA Bass Fishing if the organisation's offering. Plus, is it just us, or would a new Sonic the Hedgehog game be kind of welcome on the PS4?
