Sega continues its suspiciously sensible and consumer-friendly approach to satisfying your nostalgia.


Sega has made a huge stack of classic soundtracks available through Spotify.

The tracks on offer come from a huge variety of games, spanning decades – a bunch of Sonic games, Golden Axe, Out Run, Fantasy Zone, NiGHTS, Virtua Fighter, Skies of Arcadia, Alex Kidd and Jet Set Radio – just to name a few.

Visit Spotify to check out the whole collection, as spotted by Destructoid.

The very welcome decision to make so many musical treasures freely available is the latest in a series of excellent moves from a Sega apparently awake to the fact that you want to indulge your nostalgia. How about that free Sega Classics hub on Steam?

Another publisher might have tried selling these soundtracks at a premium, but Sega seems to have come to an understanding of the value of fostering goodwill. It might never return to its glory days, but it’s really comforting for old Sega fans to see the publisher not failing around like a dinosaur in a tar pit.
