From the outer reaches of space to a fantastic ancient land, SEGA fans will get a chance to see the hottest games of the year at San Diego Comic-Con International. SEGA is pulling out all the stops, giving fans their first chance for hands-on demos of Alien: Isolation™, Sonic Boom™: Rise of Lyric and Sonic Boom™: Shattered Crystal, and a variety of ways to experience these franchises, both onsite and off. Alien: Isolation will be showcased in amazing, spine-tingling fashion at the FUTURE US booth #241 with game demos in a custom-designed, giant-sized Alien egg pod. Sonic Boom will have a presence at the Archie Comics Booth #2842. SEGA is also taking its presence to the next level this year, partnering with NERD HQ to give fans even more chances to have fun with some of the year’s most anticipated titles.
SEGA will invade Nerd HQ from July 24-27 at Petco Park, just steps away from the Convention Center. Presented by The Nerd Machine, this popular fan-focused event provides guests an additional destination to interact with brand-new titles as well as hands-on opportunities with never-before-seen games. Nerd HQ will be the official home for SEGA throughout the show, spotlighting its games and hosting panels discussing the new titles.
Following overwhelming excitement from its debut at E3, the newest title of the Alien™ franchise, Alien: Isolation, will come to life and showcase the true meaning of fear with an immersive gaming experience. A replica version of the iconic egg from the Alien series will be onsite at the FUTURE US booth, immersing gamers into a solitary gaming pod for a unique, chilling, fear-inducing event. Enter if you dare! To help extend the experience onsite, SEGA will also launch an Alien: Isolation Motion Tracker app available as a free download for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices. The app recreates the motion tracker used in both the original film and new game which will allow fans to locate the Alien: Isolation game at Nerd HQ. Alien: Isolation is available worldwide on October 7, 2014 for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Windows PC, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
When it comes to the fastest bipedal blue star in the world, SEGA has a big year ahead. To set the stage, SEGA will introduce playable versions at Comic Con. The new games Sonic Boom™: Rise of Lyric for the Wii U™ system, developed by Los Angeles-based Big Red Button, and Sonic Boom™: Shattered Crystal for the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system, from San Francisco-based Sanzaru Games, will introduce new gameplay and the most vile and formidable villain in Sonic history — Lyric.
Announced earlier this year, Sonic Boom is a brand-new extension to the Sonic Universe that will introduce new video games, the first-ever CG-animated television series debuting on Cartoon Network in the 2014/2015 season, and a robust merchandise program anchored by master toy partner TOMY.
