Sega has opened up on its secret “Super Game” initiative and appears to be encapsulating not just one game but several different games, some of which will involve cloud and NFT technology.

In an interview with Sega Japan’s recruitment website, translated by our friends at VGC, several Sega executives explained that the new projects to qualify under the Super Game banner are “multi-platform, global, multilingual development, simultaneous worldwide release and AAA title”.

“In other words, you can imagine game development reaching that of a global blockbuster,” Sega explained.

“Sega offers a wide variety of game content, including hardware and arcade content, made possible by its diverse technologies,” added Executive Vice President Shuji Utsumi. “We have defined ‘Super Game’ as the development of AAA titles that span SEGA’s comprehensive suite of technologies, and we will aim to achieve that in our five-year plan.”

“Several titles are being developed as part of Super Game, and while each title will be different, there is no doubt that these are interactive titles that go beyond the traditional framework of games.

For example, in the past people who played games were called gamers, but now watching games has become a culture of its own and such people can no longer be called gamers. I think there’s a lot of potential in the relationship between people who play and watch games,” he added. “We’re thinking about creating new entertainment within those possibilities.”

Sega first mentioned its “Super Game” project to investors last May when it described the initiative as a “priority strategy” for the next five years. A few months later, in November, the Japanese company announced exploration plans
