Update (Wed 3rd Jun, 2020 09:30 BST): It's believed the big Famitsu scoop is a new arcade service/platform from Sega known as 'Fog Gaming'. It will supposedly allow game centers to make money outside of regular business hours At this point, it sounds like it'll be a Japan-only thing. Sorry folks!
Original Story (Wed 3rd Jun, 2020 03:45 BST): Sega has announced it is releasing a Game Gear Micro and you're probably wondering if this has anything to do with the "revolutionary" scoop that was meant to be revealed in the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu.
Well, perhaps not. According to Dr. Serkan Toto of Kantan Games, this micro-sized reveal might not necessarily be the big news concerning Sega. This is exactly what he had to say over on Twitter:
Translator and Nintendo Life contributor Robert Sephazon has also mentioned how he's "not convinced" that the Game Gear Micro is the news being hinted at for this week's Famitsu column. Here's what he told us:
While I believe this will be mentioned, I don’t think they would hype up the column and then preemptively make it irrelevant with only this. Also, the 60th anniversary interview talks about several topics on new expectations and plans for this year but they don’t talk about anything specifically substantial. There is a chance it’s only for this, but I’m not 100% certain of that.
Obviously, we'll find out later today (JST midnight), if this scoop teased by Famitsu is something more than the Game Gear Micro. Until then, tell us what you think in the comments below.
