Japanese gaming giant Sega is making its long-expected move to bring some of its most popular mobile games to the living room. Fans can now play some of their favorite Sonic titles on the fourth-generation Apple TV for the very first time.

Starting today, Sonic 1 is compatible with the new Apple TV. Next Thursday, March 24, fans will be permitted to grab Sonic 2 for Apple TV from the tvOS App Store. In addition, Sonic CD for Apple TV will release on Thursday, March 31.

Those that don’t yet own these titles now have an additional reason to purchase them, as they can now be played on their iPhone, iPad, iPod or Apple TV—all at the same time if they are an octopus.

To download these titles to your Apple TV, search for ‘Sonic’ in the tvOS App Store.

As mentioned, if you have previously downloaded Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, their Apple TV counterparts can be found under the ‘Not on This Apple TV’ sub-section within the Purchased section on the tvOS App Store.

    This is awsome! I have no problem by any means buying classic games like sonic. (Smart move, i feel most people are willing to suppost a
    Company that makes a product they enjoy, but when that company fails to produce; things like roms and emulator’s have there use.) Now only if nintindo can hurry up and wise up! Cross plateform is the future nintindo time to inbrace it.

    Looks like I’m starting to be given reasons to buy that Steelseries controller now. Let’s see how long it takes Rockstar to get the GTA series on Apple TV. Now can we PLEASE get Sonic 3 & Knuckles. I’m so done attempting to play that game on emulators. It’s a joke!!
