Are you not really into any of the new games out there? Longing for some retro games on your smartphone? If so, SEGA Networks Inc. has just what you're looking for. The first batch of the SEGA Forever collection has now been announced and made available for both Android and iOS.
In celebration of a simpler time - an era that came before cool kale, hyper-connectedness, DIY artisanal beer-making, and social media mayhem - SEGA Networks Inc. is bringing a growing collection of classic video games from every console era to your mobile device for free. The collection, called SEGA Forever, is a re-awakening of archetypal gaming, an ode to the deep and diverse SEGA catalogue, and the beginning of a retro revolution that will transport players back through two decades of console gaming.
- 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 SEGA's 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 SEGA catalogue that is ripe for rediscovery
All of the games in the collection are free-to-play, ad-supported, playable offline, and include added features like cloud saves, controller support, and leaderboards. If you prefer to not have ads in the way, each game can be purchased without ads for $1.99. Additionally, the SEGA Forever collection will continue to grow with additional releases coming every two weeks.
