SEGA Mega Drive Classics coming to Xbox One and Playstation 4 in May
SEGA have announced the Xbox One and Playstation 4 release of SEGA Mega Drive Classics - a collection of fifty classic games from the publisher's 16-bit heyday.
Not only are the games still brilliantly playable today, this new release brings with it plenty of updates that elevate the collection well above what you'd achieve with an emulator; including online multiplayer, achievements, mirror modes, rewind and save states.
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 Mega Drive Classics is set to release both digitally and physically for PlayStation® 4 and Xbox® One on May 29, 2018. Check out the nostalgia-inducing announcement trailer above
The collection has over 50 retro classics to experience across every genre; arcade action, shooters, beat’m ups, puzzlers, old favourites 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. Visit the product page for more details, www.megadriveclassics.com.
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.
