Sega and Atlus line up Sonic, Yakuza, Etrian Odyssey and Total War: Warhammer 2 for E3 2017.

Publishers Sega and Atlus have joined forces – and neighbouring booths – to present a varied lineup of games at this year’s E3. The headline acts will be this year’s two Sonic games; the retro-inspired Sonic Mania, and the 3D action platformer Sonic Forces.

The Yakuza franchise will also be represented with two games: Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, the latest entry in the long-running crime franchise, and Yakuza Kiwami, an HD remake of the original Yakuza, which was released for the PlayStation 2 in 2005.


Other treats include the Western version of Vanillaware’s 13 Sentinels: Aegis RimTotal War: Warhammer 2, and three RPGs which are heading to the Nintendo 3DS; Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux.

John Clark, Senior Vice President for SEGA Europe Ltd. said in a statement to press:

“We’re really pleased to see Yakuza and Sonic back on the biggest stage for video games, and having the first public hands-on for Total War: Warhammer 2 underlines a really strong showing from Sega and Atlus this year! We look forward to welcoming trade visitors but we’re especially looking forward to having the public come and see our line-up this year, it’s great for E3 and it’s great for publishers. We’re confident there’s something for everyone on the Sega stands this year.”

You can find Sega and Atlus at Booths 4312 and 4300 in the West Hall.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
