Snippet -

After making a public statement regarding a plan to revive old franchises before 2020, SEGA has been keeping busy. The term “SEGA Forever” has popped up, initially found via several verified social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Reddit. More recently, mobile gaming enthusiast Bearkiddy downloaded a mobile port of Comix Zone that was soft launched in the Phillippines via an alternate account. What he found when testing that game could be evidence that SEGA Forever may be related to the company’s efforts to dive into their back catalog.

The port of Comix Zone currently being tested is everything you’d expect out of a mobile port of a side-scrolling brawler, but it does have a few interesting hooks. The main menu has buttons for “More Games” and “Segazine” that only bring up a radical “Coming Soon” message. Then, there are the options you get when you launch the game. You can currently play for free with ad support and cloud saves, and the hooks exist for customers to pay for an ad-free experience. The button for this is currently labeled “SEGA Forever Buy For”, connecting this port to the mystery project. In addition, Bearkiddy received an option to sign up for a SEGA Forever newsletter and received a survey that covered a multitude of titles from SEGA’s past.
