Sega Forever coming to Mobile

 

With the recent news that Atari is back in the console making business, Sega made an announcement of their own, revealing a reach back to the past with Sega ForeverSega Forever will be a new mobile app designed for both ios and android based devices.

            While Sega based mobile games are not a new thing, Sega Forever will be a completely free-to-play platform.  The app will be supported by ads which you can chose to play without, for the cost of $1.99 a month. The launch titles, of which there are 5, will all be from the Sega Genesis system.  These are: Sonic The Hedgehog, Comix Zone, Kid Chameleon, Phantasy Star II, and one of the all time classics both in arcades and in homes, Altered Beast.

 

While all launch titles are from the Genesis system, the Sega Forever twitter account has been teasing shots from a variety of other consoles, including the Sega Dreamcast, Sega Saturn & more.  While there have been some mobile versions of a few of these titles previously, Sega has announced that all these games have been updated with more modern features including cloud saves, leaderboards, controller capability, and offline play regardless if ad-supported or ad-free is being used.

 

This is just the beginning for Sega Forever, though.  Sega plans to release more games to the app every 2 weeks.  Think about that; even if they added only a single additional game every other week, we’d have a collection of over 2 dozen titles in less than a year.

         So what do you think amigos?  Are you ready to dip back in to Sega with Sega Forever?  Will you be paying the 2 dollars a month for ad free play, or will you be willing to deal with the ads for a plethora of free classic games on your mobile device?  Let us know in the comments below or on our page.

Sega Forever is set to launch on June 22

    The Genesis soundchip always lacked compared to the SNES, but there are a bunch of Genesis games that I still consider some of the best!
