When it comes to the future of Sega, the direction the Japanese publisher is heading remains to be a strong path with the decisions its making. In 2024, both of its new releases – Persona 3 Reload & Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth – both already sold more than 1 million copies in its first week. Adding to that, the support for its legacy IPs is another promising endeavor.

In December, Sega revealed its ‘New Era’ initiative that will deliver a slew of remake/reboots for its iconic IPs including Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio, and Streets of Rage. Further developments also lists this roster growing with Kid Chameleon & Altered Beast among others. In an interview, Sega CEO Shuji Utsumi says this new drive is to resurrect the same ‘alternative’ energy that the Dreamcast era of Sega embraced.
