'SEGA Forever' (ALL) Adds The Revenge of Shinobi

by Rainier on July 27, 2017 @ 8:43 a.m. PDT

In celebration of a simpler time - an era that came before cool kale, hyper-connectedness, DIY artisanal beer-making, and social media mayhem, SEGA Networks is bringing a growing collection of classic video games from every console era to your mobile device for free.

The collection, called SEGA Forever, is a re-awakening of archetypal gaming, an ode to the deep and diverse SEGA catalogue, and the beginning of a retro revolution that will transport players back through two decades of console gaming.

Each game in the SEGA Forever lineup is free-to-play, ad-supported, playable offline, and includes added features like cloud saves, controller support, and leaderboards. For players who prefer a pristinely ad-free mobile gaming experience - folks who want to play SEGA just like they remember playing in their basement, without interruptions from parents, siblings, or homework - we’ve rolled back the price so each game can be purchased without ads for $1.99. As the SEGA Forever collection expands through months and years, it will include both official emulations and ported games that pan all SEGA console eras, each adapted specifically for mobile devices while remaining faithful to the original games.

Neo Zeed has (once again) returned…. as The Revenge of Shinobi joins the SEGA Forever collection as a free-to-play mobile title with ad support. Those who are up to the challenge can now download the game released by SEGA Networks Inc., for free from the App Store for iPhone and iPad and Google Play Store for Android devices.

Developed in 1989 with an original soundtrack by Yuzo Koshiro, this faithful emulation of the classic side-scrolling platformer lets players port back to the golden age of SEGA’s console games on a quest to get revenge and save protagonist Joe Musashi’s bride - you’re her only hope!

With added features including leaderboards, cloud saves, and controller support, The Revenge of Shinobi is the latest game to join SEGA Forever, a growing collection of classic SEGA titles from every console era that are available free-to-play (with ad support) for mobile devices. Additionally, players who wish to experience the games without ads can remove them for a one-time in app purchase priced at $1.99.

The first batch of SEGA Forever games has been carefully curated, boasting both blockbusters and core fan favorites; The collection will officially kick off tomorrow with five Mega Drive / Genesis titles, all of which will be available to download for free on the Google Play Store for Android devices and on the App Store for iPhone and iPad, where they will be accompanied by iMessage sticker packs:

  • 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-favourite 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 catalogue that is ripe for rediscovery

The upcoming lineup will include games from all console eras, including:

  • SG-1000
  • Master System
  • Genesis/Mega Drive
  • Game Gear
  • SEGA Saturn
  • Dreamcast

Added features within SEGA Forever games:
