August 31, 2017

Bringing peace to the land is your duty!

SAN FRANCISCO, LONDON – August 31, 2017Death Adder has invaded the castle and has taken the king and princess prisoner – now it’s up to you to get them back. As of today, Golden Axe has joined the SEGA Forever™ collection and is now available as a free-to-play mobile title with ad support. Those who dare can now download the game for free from the App Store for iPhone and iPad and Google Play Store for Android devices.

Golden Axe was originally released in 1989 for the SEGA Genesis™/Mega Drive™ and was created by Makoto Uchida who is known for having developed another famous Genesis/Mega Drive title: Altered Beast.  In Golden Axe, players exact revenge on Death Adder by battling as one of three formidable heroes: Gilius Thunderhead the axe-wielding Dwarf, Ax Battler the Barbarian with a broadsword, or Tyris Flare the Amazon woman with particularly powerful spells. Collect potions and cast spells to battle your way to victory against Death Adder and bring peace back to Yuria.

With added features like leaderboards, cloud saves, and controller support, Golden Axe is the most recent addition to SEGA Forever, a growing collection of classic SEGA titles from every console era that are available free-to-play (with ad support) for mobile devices. Players who want to experience the games without ads can remove them for a one-time in app purchase priced at $1.99. SEGA Forever games will be equipped with multiplayer capabilities in a future update, so please look forward to saving Yuria with the help of friends, family, or even the person who sits next to you at work!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
