SEGA are setting up shop online with a new official store. As announced in the latest official Sonic stream, this store is set to open as soon as next Tuesday.
The range that’s planned covers quite a large amount of franchises and products. While Sonic has the most prominence, the store will also start out with the SEGA Mega Drive, Golden Axe and Revenge of Shinobi, and there’s more on the way. Items range from plush toys and mugs to clothing, enamel pins and more. There’s even set to be some items exclusive to the store, and as soon as it launches you will be able to get the T-Shirt that was previously seen at TGS.
Currently, the store will be available to those in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Latin America. They are looking into plans to expanding its range in the future.
The latest issue of Licensing Today Worldwide makes mention of an online store opening as well, this one dedicated to personalised and customisable merchandise. It mentions the range starting with gifts, technology accessories and homeware, with a projected opening timeframe of this winter. It’s currently unknown if this is related to the SEGA Shop.
If you want something to purchase for a Sonic or SEGA-loving friend in time for Christmas, this might be the right place to look!
