Rumor: June 4 Issue Of Weekly Famitsu To Feature “Huge Scoop”, Believe To Be Sega Related

Posted on by Ryan

In a recent live stream on YouTube, Japanese journalist Zenji Nishikawa made claims that the June 4 issue of Weekly Famitsu in Japan will have a “huge scoop” on the level of Wired’s article which revealed major details on the Playstation 5.

Nishikawa said:

My column in next week’s issue of Famitsu is crazy. I got a huge scoop… It’s a world premiere article. And an exclusive. It may not be Nikkei or Weekly Bunshun, but if you want to know if it’s a scoop that big…it totally is! It’s a scoop from a game company that everyone loves. An insane scoop. Last year, Wired got the exclusive story on PlayStation 5, right? Other media didn’t. It’s that level of a scoop. I interviewed a certain company’s executive and technical staff, it’s really revolutionary… really, it’s a revolution.

It’ll be in Famitsu next Thursday. I already sent in my manuscript, so the proofs are being made now. It’s a scoop on a level that when the story comes out, other media will make a fuss to the company like, “Why didn’t you let us cover it?” Maybe people will say, “Who was the first to break that story?,” “It was Zenji Nishikawa, right?” It’s a scoop as major as the PlayStation 5 scoop. I just wanted to say that in advance.

I can’t say [anything more] here, but it’s OK for me to tease it (laughs). I was told that it’s OK to do so at various meetings. It’s being talked about in other places. Just not by the media. It’ll rile up the games industry.

Many are speculating that it will be related to Sega since he accidentally name dropped the company’s public relations and the company will be celebrating their 60th anniversary on June 3.
