Sega Pulls Over a Dozen Games From Apple’s App Store, Google Play Store


Earlier this month, Sega warned customers that the company would be removing a number of mobile games from Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store.

At the time of the announcement, Sega never disclosed which games would be pulled from the various mobile app marketplaces. Now that all the games were removed, we have a complete list of all the titles that were affected. All of the games below were removed from Apple’s App Store, with a select few being removed from Google Play (specified below).

– After Burner Climax (Google Play Store)

– Altered Beast

– Ecco the Dolphin

– Golden Axe

– Golden Axe 2

– Golden Axe 3

– Jet Set Radio (Google Play Store only)

– Streets of Rage 2

– Phantasy Star 2

– Sega Columns Deluxe

– Space Harrier 2

– Streets of Rage 3

– Super Monkey Ball

– Super Monkey Ball 2 (Google Play Store)

– Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition

– Virtua Fighter 2

– Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown Guide

The company said that the games were pulled because they no longer met its standards for quality. However, Sega said that some of those titles may return “in an updated form.” Were you disappointed to see any of the above games removed from the App Store? Let us know in the comments below.

    “May return in an updated form” – these were PAID games. Why not just release an app update so the people who purchased these titles don’t have to do so again. I can’t see any fan not being pissed and paying a second time….

    Maybe they might end up as a “Free 2 Play/Pay 2 Win” format.
