If you’re a fan of retro computer games, today is your lucky day.
Gaming giant Sega has just revealed that it is going to start making all of its old games available on mobile for free.
All of the company’s most iconic titles will be eventually be relaunched under the firm’s new Sega Forever cataglogue, which will be available on Android and iOS.
The first game to be released under Sega Forever is the perhaps the most iconic of all – the original Sonic – first released in 1991. Altered Beast and Phantasy Star II will also be available as part of the launch.
Each game will be available to download for free and can be played offline. However, you will have to watch an advert beforehand. Alternatively, you can pay for a premium version which is ad free.
A new game will be released every two week and eventually Sega says it will add titles from the Master System, Mega Drive, Sega Saturn and Dreamcast.
“Above all else Sega Forever is a celebration of nostalgia,” a spokesperson for Sega said in a statement.
“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,” the firm said.
“SEGA Forever democratizes retro gaming, and seeks to change how the world plays, rediscovers, and shares in classic game experiences.”
