SEGA has announced a new initiative called SEGA Forever, to bring classic SEGA games to the App Store and Google Play. The games will be free and monetized by ads which can be removed with an in-app purchase. Not a bad deal for some of the best retro games that SEGA has brought us over the years across all systems including Genesis and Dreamcast. The games library to start includes Sonic the Hedgehog, Altered Beast, Phantasy Star II, Kid Chameleon, and Comix Zone. But every month, new games will arrive with the next one being Virtua Tennis.
SEGA has always been involved in launching mobile titles, but it’s nice to see an even bigger push to bring their classics to the masses and with a dedication called SEGA Forever to constantly provide “new” classic games to mobile. In addition, passionate gamers can request classic titles to arrive to mobile by making suggestions on their Facebook Page.
Keep an eye out for SEGA Forever games in the App Store and Google Play.
