GameSpot visits Sega's Tokyo HQ

We take some snaps to show you what Sega's corporate base in Japan looks like.

Last week, GameSpot took off to Japan with Sega to check out some of the big releases the publisher has lined up for 2010. While we've been keeping busy with juicy interviews and demos (including Yakuza 3 and Valkyria Chronicles 2), we thought we'd give you a sneak peek at Sega HQs in Japan.

Located in the heart of Tokyo, Sega's main building houses the corporate offices and business arm of the publisher. We took these snaps under the watchful eye of Sega security personnel, who are onsite 24-hours-a-day to guard the building's foyer, which, not surprisingly, is home to a variety of interesting items: a rotating Sonic figure, free-to-play consoles of the latest Sega titles, cushions and scarves to keep out the cold weather, and even two working arcade machines (which don't require money to play!).

Check out the GameSpot photo gallery below and don't forget GameSpot's Sega feature page will go live on December 28, with previews, interviews, and more!

A window full of goodies greets passers-by.

Monkeying around.

Arcade fun, anyone?

Sonic keeps a watchful eye.

Cute and furry at Sega.

Free-to-play consoles for visitors.

Merry Christmas from Sega!
