The games are the classic versions, but with a few bells and whistles like the ability to save in the cloud, an online leaderboard, and Bluetooth controller support. “As the Sega Forever collection expands through months and years,” Sega said in a statement, “it will include both official emulations and ported games that pan all Sega console eras, each adapted specifically for mobile devices while remaining faithful to the original games.”
If you're digging the games up, Sega Forever is just a clever name. You have to search out each individual game to finally put the Green Hill Zone in your pocket.
Additionally, Sega says it will debut a new game every two weeks following Thursday's launch. That hopefully means "The Legend of Shinobi" and "Toe Jam & Earl" aren't too far behind. (Oh! Also, "Battletoads" and "Earthworm Jim"!)
