  • Random: Ease The Pain Of Sega Forever's Botched Launch With This Official Cereal

Best of all, it will be free to play, but will come with ads which will show up before you start playing the game.

"Sega Forever is a free and growing classic games collection of almost every Sega game ever released from every console era - Master System, Genesis/Mega Drive, Dreamcast, and more", the Sega Forever website said.

The mobile service will be supported by ads, which users can pay $2 to get rid of, according to Polygon. Anyway, the reason we're bringing all this up is because Sega is cashing on retro fever by announcing a new service for mobile players.

The company plans to release a new game every two weeks and slowly include the titles from the gaming consoles.

Amazon to Buy Whole Foods for $13.7 Billion
The app would then have automatically charged whatever products they took out of the store with them to their Amazon account. The post Amazon-Whole Foods Marriage Could Disrupt Grocery Business (NASDAQ:AMZN) appeared first on Market Exclusive.

The Sega Forever collection leverages classic games from the publisher's retro console library. Leaderboards and the ability to save your game are two other additional features to round-off this extremely generous and frankly unexpected package.

What do you think of SEGA's move?

For one, the games seemed more adult and much more complex than the cutesy world of Nintendo and, as well, you also had that incredible music and a wide variety of genres to boot.

The release of the "Sonic the Hedgehog" app also comes as the classic blue character celebrates its 26th anniversary on Friday and allows you to play as the hedgehog himself or as his counterpart characters Tails and Knuckles while you collect coins on your way to take down the Eggman villain. With already enough games licensed and cleared for at least the next three years, it looks like Sega is committed for the long-haul. Let us know in the comments!
