Sega AM2

From Sega Retro

Did http://www.sega-am2.jp/ ever exist? It doesn't resolve on Google and Wayback Machine says they never archived the page (if it was a robots.txt thing, they would say so). - Andlabs 13:42, 20 May 2011 (CDT)

These all pre-date AM2 so can't have been produced by AM2. Some were led by Yu Suzuki though.

Sources plz

Some of these later inventions - Virtua Tennis 4, anything Hatsune Miku related, Shining Force Cross etc. - do we have sources that specifically say they were made by AM2? -Black Squirrel (talk) 14:43, 4 March 2017 (CST)

Virtua Tennis 4's article credits AM3 so it may be a mistake. --AllisonKidd (talk) 21:39, 4 March 2017 (CST)
There are credits, JP credits and fan made wikis. By the time Virtua Tennis 4 came out, AM3 did not exist anymore. Which is why in the game's credits, Hiroshi Kataoka is credited as Chief Producer. Some Hatsune Miku games are credited as AM2, because Makoto Osaki is credited (check his linkedin). Finally you can check Shining Force Cross as AM2 in one of the interviews of segainteractive.jp. Sega Card Gen MLB was listed on a hiring site for R&D2 once (meaning AM2). Generally my stuff comes from the Sega page of gamestaffwiki.jp and then googling the names around to see which games they are attached to (webarchive of old hiring pages if Sega Japan work too). Sorry for no links, I am on the phone. --Trippled (talk) 00:38, 5 March 2017 (CST)
Fair enough, I'll leave it for now, although staff can move around so that's not necessarily an indication that something is an AM2 product.
Interviews ought to be mirrored so we have something to reference. Sega's corporate structure can get confusing -Black Squirrel (talk) 03:21, 5 March 2017 (CST)
It's definitly an AM2 product if it's made in that division. [[1]]. That thread has Virtua Tennis and Card Gen MLB. Sadly tough that hiring webarchive site is not avaible anymore.
