APRIL FOOLS: Experience the Exciting World of Viniculture in SEGA’s New “Virtua Vineyard”

People all around the world have been enjoying a glass of wine since the ancient times, and it’s played crucial roles in many ceremonial and social occasions since then. Some people make their own wine at home, but it’s an expensive and laborious process, and therefore not available to the average person. Even fewer people are able to experience the joy of growing their own grapes due to cost, lack of land, or not living in a grapevine-friendly growing environment. That’s not the way it was ferment to be! You may have already heard this through the grapevine, but to fill this void, we’re proud to announce an addition to our “Virtua” series with Virtua Vineyard. Virtua Vineyard   Just like Virtua Cop, Virtua Tennis, Virtua Racing, and Virtua Fighter, Virtua Vineyard allows you to experience an exciting sport, activity, or profession in a simulated and hassle-free environment. Virtua Vineyard takes this one step further with our new GrapeTime system that allows you to reisling to the challenge of starting your own vineyard in real time! Once you download the game to your PC or mobile device, you can begin building your vineyard and planting your grapes. In just three short years, you’ll be able to come back and enjoy your bountiful harvest!
