One can be forgiven for rarely wanting to take hold of a decade old game controller and play again a traditional game they used to adore during their childhood days. This was s sentiment feeling strikes so well by Nintendo currently, as it launched the NES Classic Edition. Sega is going out of its way to do something similar but in a handier manner. The company, now having paid out decades from the game console market, is fetching many games from the Master System, Genesis/Mega Drive, and Dreamcast on mobile.

Presenting Sega Forever

Sega will be used with a free-to-play model for its mobile games, which will be ad-supported (which will play prior to the start of a game). You can still play full versions of its classic games free of charge. If you would like to get rid of ads, Sega will present a preference to buy your way out of them.

The project will release five games at first. Those include:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog,
  • Kid Chameleon,
  • Altered Beast,
  • Phantasy Star II,
  • Comix Zone.

More titles will be added regularly (Sega states just about two weeks between releases), and if you want to cherish the childhood memories with classic game collection then you can search for them in the Play Store or App Store with the title “Sega Forever”.

To get an even extra nostalgic experience, the games will be playable devoid of internet connectivity. Progress could be saved online in a bid to keep going on separate phones; there will be support for Bluetooth controllers’ if you like better tactile experience.

Mike Evans, head of Sega’s mobile division stated.

 “Above all else, Sega Forever is a commemoration of nostalgia. It’s about letting fans to reconnect with past experiences. It’s an extremely easy conversion to take those games to without charge.”

The project is a clever way of profiting from nostalgia, rather than letting memories and helpful assets go down the drain. We’ll have to give a chance the apps for ourselves to check whether the games turn out to good as well in actuality as they do on paper.
