Sega opens 60th anniversary website, reveals Sega Shiro mascot character

Go Sega

I mentioned that we should not have gotten our hopes up. It seems that Sega’s mysterious teaser – that many individuals thought was suggesting a brand new Virtua Fighter entry – was simply teasing the opening of a new website, celebrating the long-time writer’s 60th anniversary.

The new web site – emblazoned with the mantra “GO SEGA” – appears on the timeline of the legendary firm, who’ve been offering gamers the world over with nice tech and superior video games for many years. A message from Sega chairman Haruki Satomi speaks of the writer’s dedication to proceed its legacy into the following technology and past.

“This year, sixty years will have passed since Nihon Goraku Bussan Co. Ltd., the predecessor of Sega, was established on June 3, 1960. We are indebted to everyone who has patronized the Sega Group for many years, and would like to express our deep gratitude to all of you,” mentioned Satomi. “We want to astonish the world with breath-taking experiences that no one in the world has ever imagined. We want to be a company that continues to provide inspirational experiences to everyone in the new world of the future… The key message of the 60th anniversary, ‘GO SEGA,’ expresses such aspirations.”

As for the silhouetted determine within the authentic teaser, it seems that that is “Sega Shiro,” a brand new mascot character for the corporate. Essentially a youthful model of ’90s advertising star Segata Sanshiro, Sega Shiro is even portrayed by Maito Fujioka – the son of Segata Sanshiro performer Hiroshi Fujioka. Sega Shiro debuts in a new website and video, which you’ll be able to take a look at beneath.

Here’s hoping that the following 60 years brings us much more Sega goodness… and Virtua Fighter 6.

Konami Trademarks Bloody Roar, But Is It For Pachinko? – PSLifeStyle

File this under “Konami is probably making another Pachinko machine,” but just in case they aren’t: The much-maligned publisher re-upped its previous trademark on the long-defunct man vs. beast vs. man-beast fighting game Bloody Roar, opening the door for much speculation. According to a search listing on the United States Trademark and Patent Office the Japanese publisher filed a new trademark holding on March 23, 2020 with the applicant listed as none other than Konami Japan. The news came to light after a dedicated Bloody Roar aficionado–which immediately brings to mind the Arrested Development “There’s dozens of us! Dozens!” gif–discovered the patent during a search.

PS5 DualSense Mic Array Will Identify Controller User, Isolate Audio

One of the features of the new PS5 DualSense controller that doesn’t quite have people talking yet—despite that being its very purpose—is the microphone array built right into the controller. Sony’s reveal glossed over this point, simply saying that it would allow users to talk without a headset, but the DualSense mic array actually carries a lot of capabilities, if a patent published earlier this week is to be believed.

The Witcher 3 Sales Top 28 Million Units Worldwide

2019 was an incredible year for CD Projekt RED, especially with regards to The Witcher 3. In addition to Geralt’s final adventure launching on the Nintendo Switch, it also raked in more sales than any other year, barring its launch year in 2015. This is thanks in large part to the immense popularity of Netflix’s live-action The Witcher series. All in all, such growth has resulted in the title’s sales number rising to a whopping 28 million.

DualSense Adaptive Triggers Could Solve a Perceived Design Flaw

Earlier today, we reported on a massive Reddit uproar about what some people see as the new PS5 DualSense controller’s biggest design flaw: the triggers. Namely, the DualSense’s L2 and R2 triggers are once again the points at which the controller rest on a surface (similar to the DualShock 4) and many are worried this will present issues with accidental button presses when setting the controller down. However, DualSense adaptive triggers could be the answer to that issue.

Bethesda's Pete Hines Has Tried the DualSense, Was 'Very Impressed'

Yesterday, Sony casually dropped the reveal of the new PS5 controller, called the DualSense. The last 24 hours have been a flurry of reactions, memes, community custom designs, and analyses of the DualSense, which is quite a large departure from this generation’s DualShock 4. Of course, the proof is in the pudding, and the only way to truly get a sense (heh) for the new controller is to go hands-on with it. Bethesda’s Pete Hines has done just that, tweeting out that he was “very impressed.”
