'SEGA Mega Drive Classics' Comes to PS4 And Xbox One - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 14, 2018 @ 8:55 a.m. PDT

SEGA Mega Drive Classics (known in North America as SEGA Genesis Classics) has over 50 retro classics to experience across every genre; arcade action, shooters, beat’m ups, puzzlers, old favorites and hidden gems, with a raft of modern features.

These include online multiplayer, achievements, mirror modes, rewind and save states meaning players old and new should find revisiting these great games an absolute Sonic 3D Blast.

You’ll be able to play the multiplayer titles like Sonic the Hedgehog 2, either on the couch with a friend, or online with anyone in the world. We’ve included graphic enhancement filters to make sure the old games still look great on your spangly, new-aged televisions along with an interactive 3D room UI, which means it’s super-easy to navigate your way to games in the collection from the virtual comfort of a 90s themed gamer’s bedroom!

The physical edition will be available to pre-order from US and EMEA retailers very soon. It comes complete with a double sided Golden Axe and Streets of Rage poster, identical to the ones you will see in the game’s 90s inspired retro gamer’s bedroom, the hub through which players can access the entire collection. Details of digital pre-order will also be available very soon.   

As if that wasn’t enough to see retro fans through to The End of the Millennium, players of the SEGA Mega Drive Classics on Steam will also be treated to The Treasures of King Nole in the form of a huge free update to the feature set, giving it parity with the console launch when it releases on May 29, 2018.
