Natal Has At Least One Sega Project On Board For E3

Natal Has At Least One Sega Project On Board For E3

Sony has already showed its hand in the upcoming motion control battle, debuting playable PlayStation Move games at GDC last week. Looks like we’ll see Microsoft’s response with at least one Sega game in tow at E3.

Sega bossman Mike Hayes tells CVG that its Japanese studios have something “brilliant” up and running for Project Natal, which the company will show off at E3. That may be more of a prototype than a full fledged game, but Hayes calls it “genuinely entertaining”. Unlike Capcom’s core-targeted Natal plan, don’t expect Sega to show up with Panzer Dragoon, Virtua Fighter or a current-generation Seaman this year.

“I think Natal and the Sony Motion Controller allow us to do things that are more about multi, party gaming,” he tells CVG. “In a way, it’s a move away potentially from the core. That’s what we’re actually getting good at. Mario & Sonic is a multi-party game – but it’s actually good fun.”

Sega is just one of many top-tier publishers who have officially signed on for Natal support (and PlayStation Move), so get ready for a waggle-heavy E3 2010, folks.

    • amen to that, sister.

      and what’s with all the xbox’s in the background? are they all required to run the game?

      • They were purely for show. Project Natal will work on all existing versions of the Xbox 360 console and will only require one for use. The sensors are said to be highly sensitive, and would be capable of recognising four players at once.

      • If you are mentaly defective mario and sonic could be fun in the same way head butting a wall could be fun. As for all the 360’s in the background they are insurance so if one gets the rrod they can switch to another without onlookers being any wiser

  • I crashed an office party by blue tongue software; a division of THQ; the makers of de blob in spetember last yeah.. I was sorta seeing the lead programmers younger sister; but they had a natal at their office and were making a brawler for the natal…
