Sega kicks off the Halloween app sales


We've seen quite a few holidays this year get bookended by app sales, and it appears that Halloween will be no different. Sega has kicked off the spooky season by putting all of its iOS apps on sale, dropping prices down to as low as 99 cents.

Apps on sale (starting tomorrow, and going through the weekend) include the recently released Brick People, the iPad version of Chu Chu Rocket, the classic Virtua Fighter 2, and perhaps most exciting, the iOS port of the great Gunstar Heroes 2D shooter.

There may be even more titles on sale -- the company asks you to go just search "Sega" in the App Store for more. Or just stay tuned; I doubt these will be the last titles we'll see drop in price over the upcoming holiday weekend.
