As we approach E3, we’re seeing more and more announcements and reveals as to what you’ll be able to see on the convention floor. Today, Sega and Atlus both revealed what will be on display in their booth, and it’s a pretty awesome lineup.
First up, Sega will be showing off something from their next addition in the Total War series with Total War: Three Kingdoms, but there won’t be anything playable. What will be on the floor between both companies will be Valkyria Chronicles 4, Yakuza Kiwami 2, Shining Resonance Refrain, and Team Sonic Racing. Finally, during the con, they will debut the latest trailer for Catherine: Full Body, which will coincide with free giveaways on their Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook channels. Below are a couple quotes from both companies about the news.
“With ATLUS™ approaching its 5th anniversary as part of the SEGA family, we’re delighted to finally have one unified stand at one of the most important gaming events of the year,” said John Clark, Executive Vice President of SEGA Europe. “We’re very excited to be showing the first romanticised Historical title in the Total War series alongside Team Sonic Racing on the very same booth as some of the most awaited Western releases of Japanese titles. I have no doubt that everyone will find something to their taste on the SEGA/ATLUS booth this year.”
“During the past year, we’ve seen a strong response from fans to key western releases in the Yakuza series and have heard their voices for more Valkyria Chronicles. As part of the wealth of IP owned by SEGA, it is our pleasure to bring Yakuza Kiwami 2 and Valkyria Chronicles 4 to fans at the show,” said Naoto Hiraoka, President and CEO of Atlus U.S.A., Inc. and Senior Vice President of Publishing for SEGA of America, Inc. “This E3 also represents an important moment for ATLUS as it nears its fifth year with SEGA, and as part of that, we will have something to announce very soon for the west.”
