Sega Mega Drive Classics Inbound for Xbox, PS4 and PC May 29th

It’s hard not to be ecstatic that 50 of mostly fan favourite Sega Mega Drive classics games will be coming in physical format to our latest generation consoles and PC. We’ve had sniffs of what could be, in the form of the Flashback Console (2017) and before that Sonic’s Ultimate (2009) for 360 but it’s going to be amazing to play these games on the powerful consoles we love today.

Note: The existing PC version will receive updates to bring it into line with the console release giving a similar experience.

Sega have announced that as well as 50 great games, we can also play Multiplayer both locally and over the interweb which instantly screams Live-Stream fun (if that’s your thing) and have included graphic enhancement filters to make sure the old games still look great on your newer televisions along with an interactive 3D room UI, which means it’s easy to navigate your way to games in the collection from the virtual comfort of a 90s themed retro-gamer’s bedroom, similar to Coinops or MEME arcades.

As a challenging Trophy aspect, a mirror mode has been added too, meaning you’ll be able to play all the titles with the screen flipped horizontally for an added challenge if you’re heading for Platinum status. There are Save States and Rewind Mode (6 second game rewind) to correct in-game mistakes too. Anyway, let’s take a look at the Sega Mega Drive Classics game list shall we?

There’s plenty to be happy about in this list with a notable exception to Sonic The Hedgehog 3, which is missing, but I don’t think we can complain, as we will see excellent value in glorious HDMI. The closest thing we’ve seen in years was on PS2, with 48 games in tow and I’m pretty sure the Flashback console wasn’t HDMI even with it’s 85 games.

So far, pricing seems to have been omitted from the details but you can expect it somewhere between £34.99 and £49.99 especially with all three Streets of Rage games included.

Still not enough? OK enjoy the trailer then go for a lie down.
