2015/12/22...Any Chance This Calendar Date becomes a Sega Celebrated Memorial Sized Great Day?


365 days until Virtual-On's 20th Memorial.

Sega has been watching other game developers produce mecha battler games since their 2001 arcade game to console: Cyber Troopers Virtual-On Force 4 Memorial Box 15 landed on Xbox 360 back in 2010/12/22.

Konami comes in with Vic Troopers (arcade) http://www.konami.jp/products/am_steel_v/

Even unexpected source bring the joy of piloting a mech to their game... EA with Titan Fall http://www.ea.com/titanfall .

Indy devoloper Mechanical Butterfly Studios proud to brag on Twitter of how much their new game, Jump Tanks http://www.mbsgames.com/games/jump-tanks/ took the in-game Timed Dash (jump) and use of Barrier obstructions from Sega's Virtual-On.

And Sega has done what since.., in terms of Virtual-On's Next big thing? There's nothing in concrete telling us there is a new VO coming. But there's been a few (connect the dots) actions... that gives this VO fan something to talk about.

Out of the Blue Sky:

2013.07.20 VOOMG/VOOT/VO4 Tournament hosted by Godsgarden.

This is actually where a lot of us met online. You remember? Also is the birth moment of Vector Strike! A few of us had a chat (in window) on Twitch during The Whistling tournament with @temjinalpha of Super Arcade fame when he voiced his idea! 3000 plus people watched this tournament

Temjin & Fey-Yen are introduced in Phantasy Star Online 2! In Japan (And still not available in the West!).

Can't forget Sega released VOOMG on XBLA & PSN Networks in the EAST.

A few Virtuaroids spiced up the hand held Super Robot Wars game. And...and...and....

And we got this guy. Every once in a while,

goes on a inspired joy ride roller coaster rant of Virtual-On, it's history and his involvement of there in.

His Twitter BIO:

現在、『電撃文庫 ファイティング・クライマックス』のプロデューサーをやってます。バーチャロンはただいまワンマンレスキューをリブート中!また、Xbox 360 、PS3 の両方でOMGのDL好評配信中、PS3ではマーズもあわせて配信しております

English: Now, I'm 'dengeki Bunko fighting climax' producer. Virtual-on reboot while now vanman less queue! Also on both the Xbox 360 and PS3 DL popular deliver in the OMG, on PS3 Mars together distribution.

In addition, @VOW_2010 is the voice of Virtual-On World and I believe has a big role writing the OMR series.

18 months or less we saw the release of One-Man Rescue Vol 2 and Vol 3. More to follow? I'd say so.

2015/12/22?

So what has Sega been doing during the last 4 years? I will say not as much as I wish, but with the little they've showed has kept my attention and hope in tact for something big to come a y e a r f r o m n o w.
