Sega grabs a share of the Haruhi license

hsds.jpgSimilar to the Naruto license in North America, rights to make games with Haruhi Suzumiya are fragmented between three parties. Namco Bandai gets to make PlayStation and PSP games. Kadokawa Shoten, a company known the Sega Saturn Lunar games, makes motion controlled Haruhi dancing games on the Wii. Sega picked up the license solely for the Nintendo DS. Everyone wants a piece of the Haruhi license.


Sega’s plan is to make an adventure game with an original story. Since the name of the game hasn’t even been finalized, it’s still being called Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya), the scenario hasn’t been discussed. We should know more soon since Sega has their Haruhi game slated to come out in the winter, the same season when Suzumiya Haruhi no Gekidou with a deluxe package including a limited edition figure.

    if it’s good… wii please.

  • Would be neat to see these out of Japan.

    Would also be neat to see the second season of the anime finally emerge from the shadows.

    I really haven’t seen the anime or read the manga at all even to this day, but I heard the PSP game is good, w/ the revolutionary life-like head bopping motion :), so I ordered it since it’s on sale. I wonder if I would enjoy the game at all not knowing the game’s story beforehand. Those Haruhi dances performed live by various people I saw on You Tube still kind of haunt me.

    I want a North American release for The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya video games and also the Lucky Star video games
