The trailer for Sega’s mysterious new RPG for mobile phones is showing on YouTube because fans don’t want another mobile RPG from the company.
The trailer for the mysterious new mobile RPG of Sega is rated on YouTube because fans dislike it for no reason other than its mobile title status. The mystery mobile game is expected to be officially announced at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show during Sega’s panel at the event, which is set to take place on October 1.
Little is known about the mysterious new RPG Sega, as only a brief trailer has been released. The game is developed for mobile phones and appears to be a fantastic RPG. The trailer claims the game is inspired by tabletop RPGs and will feature multiple paths and endings. A few brief clips of footage were shown during the trailer, but they were all out of context shots of fantastic protagonists and a woman stabbed by a dark villain.
It seems Sega’s fan base doesn’t like another mobile title from the company. As spotted by Eurogamer, the mystery RPG trailer has around 790 likes and nearly three thousand dislikes, at the time of writing. Comments on the video from English-speaking and Japanese fans criticize the game, simply because it is a mobile title. Fans lament that Sega is sitting on franchises like Arcadian Skies and Brilliant strength, while making a mobile title that could die in a few months. The trailer for the mystery game can be seen on Sega’s official YouTube channel, along with its significant number of dislikes.

This isn’t the only case of fans showing their dissatisfaction with not liking a YouTube video, as the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S trailers for Grand Theft Auto V were also strongly hated. This was in response to lackluster visual upgrades, especially since fans suspect those ports will be full-price versions of a game that’s nearly a decade old.
In the case of the mystery game, however, the answer is a bit premature, especially for such a small trailer. A mobile game won’t necessarily be bad just because of the platform it’s on. Pokémon Go continues to be a huge success, even though it has been going on for years, just like Fire Emblem Heroes. There’s not a lot of content in the trailer to dislike, as it only sets fans up for the biggest announcement at the Tokyo Game Show. This justifies waiting for the real trailer for the game to appear; if that seems inferior or riddled with microtransactions, it would be more the cause of so many dislikes.
