SEGA still funny after all these years
SEGA may not be the most popular game system in the world anymore, but it can still charm the masses—with a simple Tweet.
Late Tuesday night guitarist Justin Whang mentioned the official SEGA Twitter account in a tweet praising Jet Set Radio, a popular SEGA Dreamcast game where you skate around a Tokyo-like city spray-painting walls.
About an hour later, SEGA responded.
SEGA’s message was retweeted more than 100 times and was called “the ultimate tweet” on Reddit, where it reached the top of the front page. Most of the 350 comments were from Pokemon and Jet Set Radio fanatics, while others longed for the glory days of SEGA.
“If only SEGA could make new games the way they tweet,” wrote epicwinguy101.
The Daily Dot has reached out to SEGA for a comment and is waiting to hear back.
