In a surprising move earlier this week Namco’s American arm announced that they will be offering many classic SEGA (and particularly Sonic the Hedgehog) related ‘game tones’ thanks to a licensing agreement with SEGA of America.
Currently there are a total of 44 SEGA gametones available online, varying from After Burner all the way through to Virtua Fighter, there is plenty there to satisfy retro gaming fans and SEGA aficionados alike. On the Sonic side of the available content are a selection of 6 themes from the recent Sonic Adventure and Sonic Heroes soundtracks, not quite as retro as many fans may have been hoping for, but it’s definitely giving more recent video game music the attention it has been lacking.
Finally,Wireless Watch Impress tells us:
The game tones are available now on BREW carriers, including Verizon Wireless, Alltel and Western Wireless, and will be available on other carriers in the future.
