Sega has revealed their lineup for E3 next week, which includes a total of five games that the company will be bringing to the expo.
Those titles are:
- Castle of Illusion (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)
- Company of Heroes 2 (PC)
- Sonic Lost World (Wii U, 3DS)
- The Cave (Mobile)
- Total War: Rome 2 (PC)
Compared to other publishers and developers Sega is bringing little to this year’s E3 and it was to be expected as well. Things haven’t been that well for Sega recently, a firm that once sat on top of the video game industry. Last year in March the company recorded an “extraordinary loss” that came around 7.1 billion yen.
A restructuring process had to then take place and Sega was forced to abandon several projects, and with that fire a lot of developers. In the end the company took refuge with some more popular franchises, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Football Manager, Total War and Aliens. The latter didn’t work out too well for them as we all know.
A year that the company would want to forget has now brought them to E3 2013 where they will be showing some major video game contenders.
Who can forget the classic Castle of Illusion title from the ’90s. Knowing that two of my most favorite classic titles Duck Tales and Castle of Illusion are being brought back sends a warm fuzzy feeling down my neck. The new title has been rebuilt from the ground up and features stunning visuals and new gameplay mechanics. Get ready to see Mickey in action on the big E3 screen.
Company of Heroes 2, do I even need to talk about this title? The first was clearly one of the best strategy titles in existence and the follow up seems to be a killer one as well. It brings a dozen improvements and features, of which I’m most excited about the dynamic weather system.
Everyone is pretty excited about the new Sonic Lost World title. It’s been a while since the blue hedgehog ran across our screens and we’ll get to see that for the very first time at E3.
Total War has proven to be quite a successful franchise for Sega and the firm has invested immense time in Rome 2, depicting as close to history as possible. It’s also one of the fastest pre-ordered games of the series.
So which one are you excited for?
