Sega Auctioning Off Rare Merchandise for Japan Earthquake Recovery

Video game developers and publishers continue to step up to the plate to support the victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I’ve already posted about some of the fundraisers and relief efforts here — PopCap has announced that the iPhone/iPad sale over the weekend raised more than $200,000, so kudos to them! — and now Sega is joining in to lend a helping hand.

As part of the Play For Japan campaign, Sega is auctioning off a vast selection of rare swag/merchandise, with 100% of the proceeds to be donated to the American Red Cross. So go on, buy that Yakuza track jacket, Sonic The Hedgehog 15th Anniversary Statue, or NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams pillowcase you’ve always wanted. You can score a sweet collectible and contribute to a noble cause at the same time!

Visit Sega’s eBay Shop and the Play For Japan website for all the details.
