SEGA Arcade Returns to San Diego Comic Con
San Diego Comic Con is almost here, and we’re excited to share details of what SEGA games will be there. For the third year in a row, we’ll have an off-site arcade set up for everyone (including non-Comic Con badge holders).
San Diego Comic-Con attendees and the general public will be among the first in the U.S. to play Sonic Lost World at the SEGA Arcade. Nominated for and winner of multiple awards at E3, Sonic Lost World puts Sonic up to the challenge as he faces his most powerful enemy to date – The Deadly Six! Using his dynamic new parkour moves and Color Powers, Sonic must speed across a variety of unique terrains. The game will launch exclusively on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS later this year.
Winner of more than one dozen awards at E3 2013, including Best Strategy Game by the official E3 Game Critics and Best PC Exclusive and Best Strategy Game by both IGN and Game Informer, Total War: ROME II is poised to dominate this fall’s PC market with its highly anticipated release on September 3rd. Destined to be the biggest game in the entire series so far, Total War: ROME II will sink players into the dangerous political machinations as the head of the world’s first superpower. Attendees in San Diego will get their first hands-on with a thrilling battle between Egypt and Rome on the banks of the River Nile. Amphibious assaults, scythed war-chariots, African war-elephants… this battle has it all!
Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, is a fantastical re-imagining of the original Sega Genesis classic. With all-new HD graphics and gameplay, Castle of Illusion brings Mickey and his magical world to life. When the evil witch Mizrabel kidnaps Minnie, it’s up to Mickey to brave the dangers of the Castle of Illusion to rescue Minnie. Gather your courage and take on hordes of rebellious toys, traverse enchanted forests and navigate mazes of living books. The game will be available this summer for Xbox 360, PlayStation Network, and Windows PC.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F, the ultimate rhythm game where players can experience a concert with the world’s most popular virtual singer at any given moment, will be available for the first time at San Diego Comic-Con. Attendees will be able to experience this phenomenon first hand and play the game at the SEGA Arcade. Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F is slated for release on PlayStation 3 system and via digital download on PlayStation Network in August 2013.

Comic Con is famous for all sorts of awesome cosplay. If you’re planning on coming to Comic Con or downtown San Diego in a SEGA-themed costume, make sure you stop by our arcade and find Julian (ClumsyOrchid) or Kellie to get your photo taken. You could be featured on our social media! We saw some great costumes last year, and we can’t wait to see this year’s costumes!
