Indian telecom company Reliance Jio is working with Japanese game developer SEGA to bring classic games to its platform JioGames.
As a part of the partnership, SEGA will initially launch two new games to the store — Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Streets of Rage 3.
Both the games will first arrive on the JioFiber set top box via the JioGames. JioGames is currently available for the Jio Fiber set top box and Android. This means Android users will also be able to play this game by downloading the JioGames app.
In addition to that, SEGA will optimise the two games for the Jio set top box and TV and both the games will also get support for local languages which includes Tamil and Hindi for now.
Apart from this, these games are also expected to arrive on the JioPhone as they are old classic titles and do not require that much resources to run.
Though, Jio has not yet announced when these two games will be available on the platform.
Meanwhile, for those who don’t know, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Streets of Rage 3 are one of the most popular classic titles developed by SEGA and are still popular in several regions of the world.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a popular classic title from SEGA which was launched back in 1992. The game is a part of SEGA Mega Drive and features Sonic the Hedgehog. The game has a story where players have to stop Doctor Robotnik from fueling the Death egg space station by stealing Chaos Emeralds.
The Streets of Rage 3 was launched in 1994 for the gaming console SEGA Genesis. It’s a multiplayer fighting game with a storyline.
