Vintage video game nostalgia appears to be at an all-time high. With platforms like Atari eyeing a comeback, and Nintendo re-releasing the NES and SNES, SEGA has recently decided to allow fans mobile access to its own classic games. The Japan-based video game developer announced a new endeavor it’s calling SEGA Forever. Retro games from SEGA’s heyday will now be available — through SEGA Forever — on iOS and Android.

Basically, you’ll be able to play all of your favorite SEGA games like Sonic the Hedgehog, Kid Chameleon, Phantasy Star II, and more on your cellphone. Additional games will become available every two weeks, and players will be able to use actual SEGA controllers from consoles like Master System, Genesis and Dreamcast via Bluetooth.

The application will be free, however users will be able to pay $1.99 USD to block ads, check online leaderboards, and have access to the cloud to save their progress. The news arrives nearly one month after SEGA announced it would be bringing its arcade hit Crazy Taxi to mobile devices. For more details visit forever.sega.com.
