Each game in the Sega Forever lineup is free-to-play, ad-supported, playable offline, and includes additional features such as cloud saves, controller support, and leaderboards. Users can pay $1.99 to remove ads.
The launch lineup includes five Mega Drive / Genesis titles, all of which will be available to download for free on the iOS App Store and Android Google Play Store, and include iMessage sticker packs for the former. The launch lineup is as follows:
- 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-favorite 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 catalog that is ripe for rediscovery.
As the Sega Forever lineup expands “through months and years,” it will include “both official emulations and ported games that pan all Sega console eras, each specifically adapted for mobile devices while remaining faithful to the original games.”
