Sega Teases New RPG
Okay everyone, it's time yet again for: Name...That...Game!
We haven't the slightest idea what it could be, but Sega is teasing a new role-playing game at a new site it just launched. Go ahead and check out the teaser website, and see if you can come up with some ideas. All we know is that they'll officially unveil the game on August 20, and there appears to be a female character striking a pose in the background. There's also a mysterious symbol that doesn't give much of anything away, unless you feel like perusing the annals of RPG history to see if that rotating symbol refers to anything in particular. Now, we're already aware of Resonance of Fate, which we think looks plenty exciting, but beyond that...we're at a loss. Sega could be reviving Phantasy Star in some capacity, or perhaps they're looking to bring back the popular strat/RPG series, Shining Force. Dreamcast fans will find another possibility intriguing; that of a sequel to the well-received Skies of Arcadia, which was one of the few RPGs for Sega's ill-fated console. If you have any other theories, let us know.
The RPGs are really starting to flock towards consoles this generation, aren't they? It took a few years for them to get going, but then again, that's normal.
