A new Sega application combines the nostalgia of old-school game rooms with the convenience of mobile games.
In a new application called Sega Catcher online, users can control a real-life claw machine in Japan, watching a live video stream and entering commands from their phone.
Players are granted only two moves, forward and then left or right, before the claw is released and its destiny is sealed.
The Sega Catcher application allows users to control a claw machine in Japan. Prizes, or at least per week, are delivered to your door for free
To sweeten the deal, the prizes, which include those obtained in the game, will be delivered free of charge to the winners’ doors.
Since the merchandise comes from Japan, Sega says that players will have to wait approximately one week to receive the prizes they win in their efforts.
Players also receive only one free delivery per week, but additional deliveries can be purchased with the required amount of points.
Prizes vary, but can include everything from handbags to stuffed dolls of beloved Nintendo characters like Kirby, works of art and more.
However, Sega Catcher is not completely free, as users must load the application with ‘Sega Points’ or ‘SP’ for short, which they can buy and spend in the game.
A round in the game costs between 100 and 200 SP, which costs about $ 2 in real life money.
Players are also rewarded for checking their application frequently and are awarded points to verify.
For players who are not ready to dive head first into the game, there is also a free practice machine where newcomers can get their bearings.
As Engadget noted, there have been other similar games, such as an online claw machine called Akiba Catcher in Japan, but none has the power of a company like Sega.
That version could also only be played in Japan, while the Sega version can be played from anywhere in the world.
