Sega brings its big mobile franchises to airline in-flight entertainment.
DTI, the world’s leading provider of in-flight games, has signed an agreement with entertainment giant Sega of America to supply some of the world’s most well-known gaming titles to airlines, including several Sonic the Hedgehog games, Golden Axe and Streets of Rage 3. DTI is wholly owned by Advanced Inflight Alliance (AIA), a subsidiary of Global Eagle Entertainment.
DTI, which serves over 90 percent of the in-flight gaming market and provides entertainment to more than 100 airlines around the world, has signed a licensing agreement for over a dozen of Sega’s games which can all be played on the industry’s latest Android-based seat-back and portable in-flight entertainment platforms, as well as legacy systems.
The games will be featured in DTI’s Elite Brands Collection, its new collection of premium branded games for airlines which will include some of the world’s most recognizable and sought-after brands, and adds to DTI’s existing catalog of over 70 Android games.
“Sega video games are among the most recognized and best-loved games of all time and we’re very excited to add such an illustrious brand to our catalog,” said Alexis Steinman, Managing Director of DTI. “This partnership provides airlines with a unique way of engaging with their passengers by enhancing their in-flight entertainment programs with high quality and distinguishable brands.”
“We’re excited to bring our entertainment brand to airline passengers around the world,” added David Zemke, Director of Mobile Business Development, at Segaof America, Inc. “We take pride in making games for all platforms and this will enable a whole new audience to enjoy some of Sega’s most well-known games during their flight.”
