Newly announced game brings Sega icons into living room.

Comments

Sega has announced that it is developing a game that will use the EyeToy interactive camera peripheral for the PlayStation 2. Sega Superstars will feature a line-up of classic Sega characters, including those from Sonic the Hedgehog, Virtua Fighter and Samba de Amigo, among others.

Of note is that Sega has tapped Yuji Naka, the creator of Sonic the Hedgehog, to head up the EyeToy project. A sample of the game will be on hand at this year’s E3 Expo May 12-14 in Los Angeles and the release date is set for late this year.

Sony is claiming success with the EyeToy peripheral, saying it sold more than 3.5 million worldwide and close to 510,000 units in the United States alone. Sony shipped its second EyeToy title, EyeToy: Groove, last Tuesday.
