Sega’s “Super Game” is actually multiple titles that may use NFTs

Last May, Sega revealed that it was working on a “Super Game” that would take about five years to develop. Sega’s parent company would also invest approximately ¥100.0 billion in this project. If you were hoping this would be a generational title that would define a genre, you’d be disappointed. It turns out that this “Super Game” is really just the project name for multiple games, some of which may contain NFTs.

This news comes courtesy of an internal interview between the Sega Japan recruitment website and executive VP Shuji Utsumi (thanks for the translation VGC).

“Sega offers a wide range of game content, including hardware and arcade content, which is made possible by its wide range of technologies,” explains Utsumi. “We have defined ‘SuperGame’ as the development of AAA titles that exceed SEGA’s extensive range of technologies, and we will strive to achieve this in our five-year plan.”

He further explained that a number of titles will be developed under the SuperGame umbrella. While each will be unique in its own right, all will be “interactive titles that go beyond the traditional framework of games.”

“For example, in the past people who played games were called gamers, but now watching games has become a culture in itself and such people could no longer be called gamers. I think there is great potential in the relationship between people who play games and watch. We are thinking about creating new entertainment within these possibilities.”

According to him, there are four main criteria that a SuperGame title must meet. It must be on multiple platforms, with multi-language development, it must have a simultaneous global release, and be considered triple-A quality. According to Sega general manager Katsuya Hisai, several projects are already underway, involving about 50 people at the moment.

And in the last bit of information we got about SuperGame, Sega producer Masayoshi Kikuchi explained, “Gaming has a history of expansion through the connection of different cultures and technologies. Social networking and watching game videos, for example, are recent examples. a “natural extension for the future of gaming that will expand it into new areas such as cloud gaming and NFT. We’re also developing SuperGame from the perspective of how far different games can be connected.”
