London, August 15, 2022 – SEGA will be attending gamescom 2022 from August 24-28 with a stellar line-up of titles from its diverse portfolio, including a world-first public outing for Sonic Frontiers. Showgoers will be able to experience the wonders of Starfall Island in Sonic’s new open-zone platforming adventure. The game will also be playable on TikTok’s stand over in Hall 7, where Head of Sonic Team, Takashi Iizuka, will be making a guest appearance on Friday 26 August for a meet and greet with fans.

If strategy games are more your thing, you won’t be short of options on the SEGA stand, with Company of Heroes 3, Total War: WARHAMMER III, Humankind and Two Point Campus, all playable. Relic Entertainment’s return to its beloved Company of Heroes franchise will see players take on an all-new theatre against the lush backdrops of the Mediterranean and North Africa. Playable on the stand for COH3 are a 1v1 multiplayer map set in Italy to play versus the AI, or a sample mission from the North Africa single player experience.

The Persona 25th Anniversary celebrations continue, with Persona 4 Arena Ultimax available to play amidst a myriad of Persona themed merchandise on display from Shop ATLUS. Don’t forget to grab your discount code for that on the stand, or have your photo taken with our life-sized Morgana character!

Also playable on SEGA’s stand is Amplitude’s rogue-lite new entry to the Endless series, Endless Dungeon, exhilarating arena fighter Demon Slayer -Kimetsu No Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles, and Soul Hackers 2, the new supernatural RPG from ATLUS releasing on 26th August. Finally, SEGA’s brand-new sci-fi FPS, HYENAS, will be offering a gravity defying photo experience for attendees, complete with a variety of props, including but not limited to, inflatable unicorns, boom boxes and arcade cabinets.

You can find the SEGA stand situated in Hall 9, A18 of the Koelnmesse. For more information about SEGA or any of the titles mentioned above, feel free to follow us on social media via FacebookTwitterInstagram and our newly launched TikTok! Or log on to www.sega.co.uk.
