SEGA has accidentally revealed their new collection, SEGA Genesis Classics a little ahead of schedule.
SEGA has a huge collection of old titles it sits on. Back in the 1990s, the company was one of the biggest in games, challenging Nintendo in the home console space, pitting Mario and Sonic against each other in very real ways. Of course, after the ill-fated Dreamcast, SEGA went to focus primarily on software development, but their legacy still stands true, especially when it comes to retro collections.
It seems the company is set to celebrate that legacy too, as a trailer and various assets appeared online for the SEGA Genesis Classics collection. However, that the news came a little early. The initial trailer was taken down, supposedly to be reinstated when SEGA is ready to actually announce the collection. From various materials, we know the collection will feature more than 50 games and is set to land on May 29, 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One (sadly it seems a Nintendo Switch version isn’t coming). The entire list of games isn’t quite clear yet, but as you’d expect an assortment of Sonic games, Altered Beast, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe and more are set to show up in the collection.
These kinds of collections are pretty hot right now. The NES and SNES Minis have done exceptionally well to this point, proving the market for video game nostalgia is still a hot one. On that, this makes total sense. 50 games seems like a lot too, so hopefully, it will be more than enough to satisfy the biggest SEGA fans.
