Sega Plans to Release Multiple Spinoff, Remake Games in Fiscal Year Ending in March 2023

posted on by Adriana Hazra
Company plans to launch 13 titles this fiscal year including Sonic Frontiers, Sonic Origins, Soul Hackers 2

Sega's latest earnings release for fiscal year 2022 (April 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022) revealed on Friday that the company is "planning multiple titles" under the banner of "Remake/Remaster, Spin-Off/Change of theme" for its next fiscal year.

The company anticipates an approximate 5 million units in sales for these upcoming titles. The report noted that titles under this banner such as Sonic Colors: Ultimate, Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, and Lost Judgment crossed a cumulative 4 million units in sales in the fiscal year that just ended.

Sega also stated it plans to launch 13 titles in the next fiscal year (up from seven last year), including the upcoming Sonic Frontiers game as well as Sonic Origins, Soul Hackers 2, and Two Point Campus.

Bloomberg reported on April 19 that Sega is developing "big-budget reboots" of its Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi Dreamcast games as part of the company's recent Super Game initiative.

The Crazy Taxi reboot game has reportedly been in development for a year, but Sega has yet to release any details regarding the game.

Video game unit chief Shuji Utsumi is in charge of the Super Game initiative. Sega began collaborating with Microsoft on the initiative last November.
