Today, Comic Con is truly underway and as a result, so is the SEGA Arcade. The most notable addition to the area is a display case full of Sonic merch, advertising the recently opened website for the US branch of Sonic Merchandise. I made sure to get pictures of the display case and the people manning it, as well as some things I missed yesterday, so check them out below the fold!
SEGA has announced that they will be attending this year’s San Diego Comic-con. The publisher won’t have a booth at the convention center though, but instead a ‘pop-up arcade’ space nearby. The public will be able to go into the arcade and try out playable demos of many of SEGA’s upcoming games before they’re released, including Sonic Generations, the first public demo of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and more.
SEGA will also be unveiling a new unannounced game, which will likely be Aliens Infestation for the Nintendo DS. The game recently turned up on the ESRB’s website, meaning an official announcement could be on the way soon, and what better place could you lift the lid on an Aliens game than at San Diego Comic-con?
For more details, check out the ad at the top of this article and the press release below.
