Sega Seeks To Reboot One Of Their "Most Beloved IPs?"
When we hear a company - especially a Japanese company - plans to "reimagine" something, we feel a tingle at the base of our spines.
So many things could go horribly wrong. But then again, provided the franchise in question really is in need of a reboot, it might be a good idea... Shall we remain optimistic for now?
According to a Sega of America job listing (as cited by GamerZines), the company is looking for an executive producer who will work on "a high quality product based on a reimagining of one of Sega's most beloved IP's." There are no other details, but you can bet that rampant speculation has already begun. Sega didn't even mention targeted platforms, so we can't really narrow our search, although we might be able to strike Sonic from the list. They just released Sonic Generations, which was a borderline triumphant return to form.
Then again, maybe it was a precursor of things to come. Maybe they're working on a full-fledged 2D Sonic. But that still doesn't seem right...any ideas as to what this "beloved IP" might be? And don't say Shenmue.
