SEGA Forever Shifting Focus Away from Emulation, Now Prioritising Native Ports

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

SEGA has announced that they are now prioritising native ports for SEGA Forever a la the ‘TaxStealth’ ports of Sonic 1 and 2, as opposed to emulated titles.

In a post on SEGA’s blog, they state that the native ports amongst the SEGA Forever lineup (Sonic 1,2 and CD, Crazy Taxi, and Virtua Tennis Challenge) are the most played – and as such, they intend to bring more of these sorts of titles to the service, rather than the emulated Mega Drive titles that make up a fair chunk of the current lineup. There’ll still be emulated titles added to the roster, but the focus of the initiative is now elsewhere.

As a result of this shift, the slew of releases for SEGA Forever is set to slow down a tad – however it appears the aim here is now “quality over quantity,” which will likely be music to the ears of many a SEGA fan. Also promised is “a surprise or two you weren’t expecting” amongst the upcoming emulated titles.

Speaking of which, the blog’s decor does tease another upcoming Mega Drive title for the service –  it appears Treasure’s classic head-em-up Dynamite Headdy is coming to smart devices soon, as is… Super Monkey Ball?

The mobile Virtua Tennis title Virtua Tennis Challenge is the next game to be given the SEGA Forever treatment. This now means the game is free to download and play with ads, with an optional one-off payment of £1.99 to remove the ads.

Virtua Tennis Challenge was originally released on the 13th of March 2012 and this update essentially brings it in line with other SEGA Forever titles i.e. a new yellow-bordered icon, the new SEGA Forever logo at start-up and ad support.
