Major News Coming in Next Week’s Issue of FamitsuNext week’s issue of Famitsu is apparently going to have a rather large scoop, as details have surfaced, teasing that it’ll be revolutionary and rile up the game industry.

This news comes from Japanese technology journalist Zenji Nishikawa, stating that the news will be on the level of the PS5 Wired article reveal that we saw last year.

My column in next week’s issue of Famitsu is crazy. I got a huge scoop… It’s a world premiere article. And an exclusive. It may not be Nikkei or Weekly Bunshun, but if you want to know if it’s a scoop that big…it totally is! It’s a scoop from a game company that everyone loves. An insane scoop. Last year, Wired got the exclusive story on PlayStation 5, right? Other media didn’t. It’s that level of a scoop. I interviewed a certain company’s executive and technical staff, it’s really revolutionary… really, it’s a revolution.

It’ll be in Famitsu next Thursday. I already sent in my manuscript, so the proofs are being made now. It’s a scoop on a level that when the story comes out, other media will make a fuss to the company like, “Why didn’t you let us cover it?” Maybe people will say, “Who was the first to break that story?,” “It was Zenji Nishikawa, right?” It’s a scoop as major as the PlayStation 5 scoop. I just wanted to say that in advance.

I can’t say [anything more] here, but it’s OK for me to tease it (laughs). I was told that it’s OK to do so at various meetings. It’s being talked about in other places. Just not by the media. It’ll rile up the games industry.

According to details posted on Gemetsu, this major news will indeed be related to the Japanese publisher giant, SEGA. No further details were revealed. SEGA is set to have 60th (yep they’re that old!) anniversary on June 3, with the weekly Famitsu issue releasing the following day. Whatever this news may be, we’ll be sure to keep you all updated as the development unfolds.
