Sega are celebrating their 60th anniversary with a 60 day-long event encompassing game discounts, free retro-inspired mini-games that have been created specially for the anniversary celebrations, and more besides.
The picky amongst you would say that Sega are a bit late in doing this, with the company founded on 3rd June 1960, but it’s Sega’s birthday and they can celebrate when they want to!
They’re kicking things off with a slew of discounts on Steam, featuring pretty much any and all Total War games, Yakuza, Dawn of War 3, Endless Space 2, Persona 4 Golden, Cathering, Two Point Hospital and more. There’s up to 75% off!
You can also get Sonic the Hedgehog 2 completely for free, and snag some Sega 60th Anniversary items for Two Point Hospital.
Sega studios have also made four retro-inspired mini-games based off their modern franchises. These are available at different times through the rest of this week, including:
- Armor of Heroes – Relic Entertainment™ – A retro-inspired multiplayer tank romp for up to four players in versus combat and couch co-op. Available from 15-19 October.
- Endless Zone – Amplitude Studios™ – The Endless universe and Fantasy Zone™ collide in this side-scrolling shoot ‘em up. Available from 16-19 October.
- Streets of Kamurocho – SEGA® – Kiryu and Majima from SEGA’s critically acclaimed Yakuza™ series are raging on the Streets of Kamurocho in a new, but familiar challenge. Available from 17-19 October.
- Golden Axed – SEGA® – A build of a never-before-seen glimpse at a canned project called Golden Axe™: Reborn. Available from 18-19 October. So, just one day.
