Reports said that Sega is considering reviving many of the old and well-known series of games after scrutiny, as the company is no stranger to reviving classic games that bring back nostalgia.

The financial results show that Sega is considering restarting Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio, and other classic games, while it begins working on Super Game.

The presentation of the results was posted to mark the end of the fiscal year on the Sega Sammy investor relations website and included a number of interesting details about the company’s future plans.

One slide concerns the use of intellectual property assets, with reference to its active and passive games, and how Sega plans to rework, remake, or reboot an older series to take advantage of its globally recognized games that it owns.

A number of fan-favorite vintage games are mentioned in the IP collections section, including Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio, NiGHTS, Space Channel 5, Panzer Dragoon and Rez.

This indicates at least that the company is interested in bringing some of these games back to the market while promoting active IP games, such as: Yakuza, Persona, and Sonic.

The presentation also mentions Sega’s five-year plan to launch what it calls the Super Game.

Although it is not clear what exactly this term means, the company says: It is investing heavily in the project and aims to launch it by its fiscal year 2026.

In addition to transforming existing and active IP games into global brands, the company wants to create a new game that can be expanded globally but does not expect it to be very profitable immediately.

No details were provided about which Sega Studios made the game, nor the type of game.

While Sega is developing the Super Game, she also mentions developing a new FPS in the European studio, which could be the multiplayer sci-fi shooter that Creative Assembly is working on.
