How comes no revenge of / super shinobi? Is it music copyright or something? They took spiderman and batman out iirc all those years ago but it always just seems to be shinobi 3 that ever comes out.

Edit: oh hang on, it’s on the video.

Supposedly this game list may end up being the same as the Genesis mini units they released a few years ago.

I am curious to know if these will have achievement support or online multiplayer support.

Well, this explains why Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection never became backwards compatible.

SUGC had some good SMS games and arcade ports thrown in. Hopefully Sega does the same here. An unlockable Sega Rally or Virtua Fighter Remix would take away the feeling that I've already bought Genesis compilation discs on Dreamcast, PS2, and X360.

I suddenly miss the sonic mega colle tion i had on xbox because it was the only collection that had Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

The list of confirmed games just comes off as meh, i played enough of them from the genesis collection on the 360

That, and Columns 3 was the shit. Played so many hours of that.
Columns on Game Gear was so addicting... soooo good. Actually, battery life aside, playing indoors with rechargeable batteries or AC adaptor, the Game Gear was a really nice console and some of the games were miles ahead visually of any other handheld... little understood TV capable beauty :D.

I bought the Megadrive & the Genesis collection (double Trophy list) for PS3. Will be getting this as well.

Looks like they added a few games they already released seperately after the collection on PS3. Not much surprises.

I think we can add Sonic 3 as it was in the PS3/360 collection.

Toejam & Earl & its sequel are safe bets as well, as they were published later on & feature in the trailer & on the cover.

I wonder what's next to Sword of Vermillion in this picture.

I wonder if the lack of Switch means there's some weird, stupid Virtual Console policy in place that we're not seeing.

Owning an Everdrive (and a ton of these legit), I don't have much use for this on PS4 or Xbox but I'd buy it on Switch day one. I miss the days of bringing $30 worth of batteries with me to play my Nomad.

Yeah baby!
  • Streets of Rage
  • Streets of Rage II
  • Streets of Rage 3
Been too long, there are probably other great games also but this is what I'm excited for.

Why Sega is focusing on the Genesis so much is because it was their single most successful platform they had out of all of their systems they released between 1982- 1998... otherwise they missed a HUGE opportunity here, they could have thrown in Sega Rally, Daytona 1 and 2, Panzer Dragoon, et all....but instead it's the same re-releases as before.....where as you can't even play Sega Rally on today systems...

I agree. Every compilation....even going back to Dreamcast and PS2 has the same damn games. There are a TON of other Genesis games made and published by other companies that I bet they could add....like Jungle Strike, Star Control, Subterrania, Strider etc.....
