Ever get nostalgic for the good old days when games were a bit more simple but still just as fun, or, are you a young gamer who doesn’t remember gaming past the age of the PlayStation 2? Either way, SEGA has you covered. SEGA Europe Ltd. has an Altered Beast™ of an announcement certain to create an Alien Storm™ amongst the Shining Force™ of retro SEGA fans out there, as SEGA® Genesis Classics™ is set to release both digitally and physically for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 29, 2018!
SEGA Genesis Classics is a collection of over 50 retro classics from every genre; arcade, action, shooters, beat’m ups, puzzlers, all the old favorites with a few hidden gems mixed in for the fun of it. SEGA Genesis Classics also brings a host of modern features to these retro classics such as online multiplayer, achievements, mirror modes, rewind and save states and more.
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 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 Genesis 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.
Retro is in guys! Don’t get left behind
