SEGA is bringing back fond memories of yesterday with SEGA Forever. Players can look forward to the launch of five titles for iOS and Android devices on June 22nd.
Each of the games in the line up is free to play, though ad supported. All can be played offline and have had a number of new or improved features added including leader boards, cloud saves, controller support and more. Players get a great deal for $1.99 per game. Further, the company has plans to release more games from its library every two weeks.
This week’s release includes:
- Sonic The Hedgehog, the 1991 household classic that has remained at the forefront of hearts and minds since inception
- Phantasy Star II, the longtime fan-favourite RPG from 1989
- Comix Zone and Kid Chameleon, two American titles developed by in-house studio STI
- Altered Beast, the original Genesis pack-in title, a beat-em-up set in Ancient Greece that represents a weird and wonderful segment of the catalog that is ripe for rediscovery
“Above all else SEGA Forever is a celebration of nostalgia. It’s about allowing fans to reconnect with past experiences and share them with family and friends in an accessible and convenient way,” explains Mike Evans, CMO of SEGA’s Mobile Division in the West. “Join us on a journey of rediscovery as we roll out two decades of classic games free on mobile. Create your own ‘SEGA Forever folder’ and collect your favorite classics. Enjoy moments of nostalgia on the go, or sync a Bluetooth controller to enjoy a console-like experience in your living room. SEGA Forever democratizes retro gaming, and seeks to change how the world plays, rediscovers, and shares in classic game experiences.”
