The trailer for Sega’s mysterious new RPG for mobile phones is being ratioed on YouTube, due to fans not wanting another mobile RPG from the company.
The teaser trailer for the mysterious new mobile RPG by Sega is being ratioed on YouTube, as fans are disliking it for no reason other than its status as a mobile title. The mystery mobile game is set to be formally announced at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show during Sega’s panel at the event, which is due to take place on October 1.
Little is known about the mysterious new Sega RPG, as only a brief teaser trailer has been released. The game is being developed for mobile phones and it appears to be a fantasy RPG. The teaser trailer claims that the game is inspired by tabletop RPGs and will feature multiple paths and endings. A few brief snippets of footage were shown during the trailer, but they were all out-of-context shots of fantasy protagonists and a woman being stabbed by a shadowy villain.
It seems that the Sega fanbase isn’t keen on another mobile title from the company. As spotted by Eurogamer, the teaser trailer for the mystery RPG has around 790 likes and nearly three thousand dislikes, as of the time of writing. The comments on the video from both English and Japanese-speaking fans are criticizing the game, simply for being a mobile title. The fans are lamenting that Sega is sitting on franchises like Skies of Arcadia and Shining Force, while making a mobile title that could die in a few months. The teaser trailer for the mystery game can be seen on the official Sega YouTube channel, along with its hefty dislike count.
This isn’t the only instance of fans showing their displeasure through disliking a YouTube video, as the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S trailers for Grand Theft Auto V have also been heavily disliked. This was in response to the lackluster upgrades to the visuals, especially as fans suspect that these ports will be full-price releases of a game that’s nearly a decade old.
In the case of the mystery game, though, the response is a little premature, especially for such a small teaser trailer. A mobile game isn’t necessarily going to be bad, simply because of the platform it’s on. Pokémon Go continues to be a huge success, even though it has been going for years, as has Fire Emblem Heroes. There isn’t much content in the teaser trailer to dislike, as it’s just prepping fans for the bigger announcement at the Tokyo Game Show. It warrants waiting until the real trailer for the game appears; if it looks subpar or riddled with microtransactions, that would be more cause for such a large amount of dislikes.
Tokyo Game Show 2021 will run from September 30 to October 3, 2021.
