TGS 2021 Online Sega Atlus announce new Sega RPG Skies of Arcadia Phantasy Star IV Sonic the Hedgehog Tokyo Game Show reveal news

Earlier this month, we reported on the Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2021 Online schedule, which will occur September 30 through October 3. At the time that the schedule first became available, precise details from each video game publisher’s showcase were not always available. In particular, Sega / Atlus details were listed as “Undecided,” but now the Japanese schedule has been updated to provide a valuable new nugget of info: Sega will reveal a new RPG at TGS 2021 Online.

Atlus typically handles its own reveals by itself, so the language suggests that this will not be Persona 6, Project Re Fantasy, or a new Etrian Odyssey. Although, plenty of Persona news is coming in the near future regardless (maybe including a Persona 4 Arena Ultimax remaster), and Atlus has briefly discussed more Etrian Odyssey as well.

So, a new Sega RPG at TGS 2021 could be just what it sounds like — something brand new — and I actually suspect that is the case. However, it sure would be cool to finally get a Phantasy Star V or a revival of the Skies of Arcadia franchise. I am perfectly alright with BioWare’s abysmal Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood staying dead and buried forever though. And Sega is already reviving the Shining Force series with a shockingly faithful licensed mobile game.

Whatever this new Sega RPG turns out to be at TGS 2021, there is at least a chance it could release on consoles next year, as back in May, Sega Chief Strategy Officer Shuji Utsumi teased more console titles coming in 2022. In any case, you can look forward to the Sega / Atlus TGS 2021 Online panel on October 1 at 10 p.m. JST / 9 a.m. EST.
