Sega teases Ristar for SEGA Forever service

Sega gives into fan demand by announcing Ristar for SEGA Forever, which is a free service available on both iOS and Google Play—with ads. The in-game advertisements can be removed with a $1.99 purchase of each game available. Rumor has it that Ristar will be available in the UK and USA this Thursday. Additionally, Ristar has been available on Valve’s Steam client for $2.99. Maybe it’s time for Sega to drop those Steam prices!

Ristar was first released on the Sega Genesis and Sega Game Gear in 1995 towards the end of the 16-bit life cycle. It stars—no pun intended, a stylized cartoon star that uses its stretchable arms to move and defeat enemies as the player explores the lush levels of Planet Neer.
