Sega Will Consider More Free-to-Play Games for 3DS in the Future

on December 29, 2013 4:50 PM

This winter Japan will see Sega’s first free-to-play game for 3DS titled Initial D: Perfect Drift Online, which will have players purchasing points to increase the game’s unlocking process. However, there’s the option of earning the game’s content for free with enough success in its on and offline gameplay.

In an recent interview with Famitsu (translated by Siliconera), Yakuza series lead Toshihiro Nagoshi discussed Sega’s possible continuation with free-to-play games.

We don’t intend to stop with this title, and after looking over its results, we’ll think about what to do next.

Nagoshi is also “very interested in seeing what happens” with Initial D: Perfect Drift Online before making any official announcements. While nothing is set in stone, Nagoshi revealed that Sega has been thinking about what would work best for additional free-to-play games on the 3DS but didn’t go into further detail.
