Remember the time when SEGA had their own consoles and a massive games library behind it? Well good news if you do SEGA is bringing a growing collection of their classic title back to your mobile devices.
This collection is going to be called SEGA Forver, and the great thing about it they’ll all be free to play. However, they will be ad-supported if you wish to play them for free, for those who wish to play them without the adverts you can purchase each game for $1.99. The games are bringing cloud saves, will be playable offline with controller support, and lastly include leaderboards. As the library grows it will cover all of SEGA’s consoles with official emulations that will be ported for mobile devices, but keep true to the original games. Mike Evans, CMO of SEGA’s Mobile Division in the West, explains:
“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. 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.”
The first batch of games in the collection are now available and they have chosen five fan favourites, these are;
- Sonic The Hedgehog
- Phantasy Star II

Following the launch, SEGA have announced that SEGA Forever will receive new titles every two weeks.
