SEGA Mega Drive Classics to Release on Xbox One, PC and PS4 May 29th 2018

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

UPDATE 2

The full list of included games has been confirmed by the PlayStation Blog. Notable exclusions from the collection include Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles which is likely due to licensing agreements regarding the soundtrack, which infamously features work by Michael Jackson. We also have confirmation of both offline and online multiplayer for games that support multiplayer options.

UPDATE 1

SEGA Europe have confirmed that the game will feature a new rewind option, a mirror mode and a selection of visual filters. SEGA Europe have confirmed the mirror mode mirrors the entire game horizontally – text and all. There has also been confirmation that Sonic 3 will not be included. The game will support trophies and achievements. An official website is also now live.

ORIGINAL POST

A new SEGA Mega Drive Classics collection will launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 29th 2018.

This new collection appears to be based on the engine powering the SEGA Mega Drive Classics Hub for PC (complete with the virtual gamer’s bedroom), which is bizarre considering this is supposed to be getting a PC port as well. Will it become an update to owners of the SEGA Mega Drive Classics Hub on PC or will SEGA de-list the hub? We will update this story as we learn more.

This collection will feature over 50 Mega Drive titles including Sonic the Hedgehog, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, Space Harrier II, Gunstar Heroes, ToeJam & Earl, The Revenge of Shinobi, Kid Chameleon and Altered Beast.

Check out the reveal trailer below:

RC Berg announce “Video Game Heroes” model kits based on Streets of Rage, Altered Beast and Rent A Hero

Friday, February 9th, 2018

Figure company RC Berg have announced new additions to their “Video Game Heroes” model kit line, based on a trio of classic SEGA properties – Streets of Rage (Bare Knuckle), Altered Beast, and Rent-A-Hero.

Each set has 3 figures – for example, the Streets of Rage set includes Axel, Blaze and Adam. It’s important to note though – these are model kits, and as such you’ll need to paint them yourself. They stand at roughly 60-90mm, and each group of figures will set you back around 7200 yen (Roughly £48). Worth mentioning is that this isn’t RC Berg’s first foray into SEGA model kits – they previously released a few fantastic Space Harrier kits too.

50 sets will be sold ahead of the full release, at the Winter Wonder Festival event being held February 18th. We’ll let you know if they go live at any international retailers afterwards.

Images of the 3 sets can be found below, with a full gallery at Famitsu (and on RC Berg’s website):

Western Releases of SEGA 3D eShop Titles Looking Likely

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Up and until now, SEGA’s 3D re-releases of classic SEGA titles for the 3DS eShop have been exclusive to Japan, but by the looks of things two of these titles look to be coming West.

The Australian Classification Board has entries for both 3D Sonic the Hedgehog and 3D Altered Beast. While Australia obviously isn’t the West, games that are generally released in this region get a release in the West as well.

No official word on these titles or any release dates have been revealed at this time.
