Sega Fes 2018 was held over 2 days, from April 14-15, at the Belle Salle event space in Akihabara. A celebration of all things Sega, the event featured games (plus a giant Megadrive controller!), announcements (Shenmue 1&2 HD remaster and a New Sakura Wars title), and an extensive display of Megadrive and Dreamcast hardware and software (although no Master System or Saturn, strangely enough). Looking through some of the Megadrive covers was a major nostalgia trip – there were a lot of familiar and influential titles in there.
During the first day of Sega Fes, Kotobukiya Akihabara also held a Sega-themed 16-bit model display. Participants paid tribute to everything from Virtua Fighter to the legendary Segata Sanshiro. While the display was held in a dimly-lit room, making photography a little difficult, the SpeakerPODcast Crew managed to get a few pics.
