The E3 show floor is open, and we wanted to give you guys the grand tour of our booth. We think it looks pretty amazing, and we hope you will too. We’ve got all these photos and more on our Flickr set.
We start at the reception desk, home of this and other SEGA logos. The people at reception are in charge of greeting people, finding people in the booth when someone comes to see them, passing out information on our games and press kits, and answering questions about our games and our booth. They are the front line, and the nerve center of the entire booth.
If you keep going to the right outside the booth, you’ll find the Rise of Nightmares dungeon. It’s got an electric chair on the outside for people to get their photos in, and the demo area is inside.
Sharing space in the scary corner of the booth is House of the Dead: OVERKILL Extended cut. There’s Mutants in the windows and a play area inside.
Next are the rocky stations for Binary Domain. There’s some great statues here for photos, and 6 stations to play the game.
Moving to the next corner of the booth, we find the Aliens Colonial Marines theater. This is an enclosed space for people to get a private showing of what the game has to offer.
In the opposite corner, we find the huge area for Sonic Generations. As it’s Sonic’s 20th anniversary, we really blew it out this year. In addition to many stations to play the game, we’ve got statues of both Classic and Modern Sonic for people to take photos with, as well as a huge rotating Sonic that can be seen all over the show floor. We also have display cases with Sonic memorabilia throughout the years, and on the outside of the Generations area is a timeline of Sonic games we’ve released since 2001.
Sega Rally Online Arcade, Guardian Heroes, and Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing for iPad
In the 3DS area, we’ve got even more games to play! Shinobi has two stations, and I expect them to be totally packed!
