Reliance Jio and SEGA Collaborate To Offer Popular Games in India

In recent years, gaming has gotten more mainstream, and more people are spending on consoles and handheld consoles to experience a premium level of Gaming. Gaming has been more prevalent in recent years. The Shortage and Restocking issues with Sony’s PlayStation 5 show how the gaming community has increased over the past few years regarding enthusiasm and re-stocking.

The one thing the gaming Industry has witnessed in recent years, despite this enthusiasm, was the increase of mobile players that has not always happened in the past. Games such as PUBG and Call of Duty have led to significant growth in the number of players who choose to play favorite battle royale and competition simulations on their mobile devices. This was quite beneficial, especially during these difficult times, to provide consumers with a great deal of comfort and pleasure.

Reliance Jio, a Homegrown Telecom company, teamed with SEGA to bring the Jio Games Store of the firm. The partnership enables SEGA to be downloaded from India via Jio’s smartphone, Set-Top-Boxes (STB), and other devices. Late last week, the Japanese corporation confirmed its cooperation in its own country.

Currently, two games – Hedgehog 2 Sonic and Rage 3 Streets – will be available from the company. The gaming giant also revealed that it would be responsible for modifying the supported platform, identifying and integrating the languages into the appropriate systems for the two-game. The business stated Jio aims to spread the game through its set-top-boxes in India, and these are the first SEGA games in Hindi and Tamil. JioFiber users will get first access to the games.

Both Sonic, the Hedgehog 2, and Street of Rage are intended for equipment that does not require a large amount of processing power. Games for smartphones such as PUBG Mobile and so on consume a lot more power and are designed for devices of full capacity.

Perhaps the largest Indian gaming firm has announced a worldwide relationship, the Mukesh Ambani-owned corporation. The mobile gaming sector in India has had a huge increase among indoor people in 2020. In the first nine months of the previous year, the country accounted for 17 percent of the worldwide downloading of mobile games.

As Mint has previously reported, several multinational businesses have sought collaborations with Indian enterprises. Jetsynthesys, a digital entertainment company, has launched a mobile game called Ludo Zenith in February, partnering with Square Enix, another Japanese gaming giant.

On the other side, firms such as Games 24×7 and GameZop have declared intentions for the Western markets and WinZo Games, located in Delhi. In February, Yashash Agarwal, the CEO and co-founder of Gamezop, said to Mint, “We estimate 30% of new collaborations to come from the market outside India.”

In cooperation with Google, Jio is also attempting to develop a cheap smartphone in India. Sundar Pichai, Google CEO, recently acknowledged the initiative to be part of the two companies. The alliance was announced last year.

Jio aims to become a dominating force in the Indian mobile phone industry, confirmed by numerous collaborations and initiatives. In addition to providing telecommunications and Internet services, the firm is developing a comprehensive ecosystem for its consumers and the smartphone hardware front.
