SEGA Networks Inc. will be bringing SEGA Forever to iPhone and iPad as a re-awakening of archetypical gaming and will feature games from each era.

According to today's press release each title in the collection will be free to play, ad-supported, playable offline, and will include cloud saves, controller support and leaderboards. However if you're more keen on playing the games ad-free, you can get them for £1.99/$1.99 a piece.

The official launch kicks off tomorrow, starting off with five carefully-selected Mega Drive/Genesis titles which are:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog

  • Phantasy Star II

  • Comix Zone

  • Kid Chameleon

  • Altered Beast

Following these five titles, the SEGA collection will continue to grow every two weeks. Check out SEGA Forever's dedicated social media sites for more details.
