A few weeks ago the SEGA Mega Drive (Genesis) Collection was announced for PS4 and Xbox, with Nintendo fans feeling left out from enjoying classic SEGA games on the Switch. So far, we only know of three games that have been confirmed for the collection: Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, and Thunder Force IV.
The titles are expected to begin arriving this summer. The model in the image above, with a cleaner version shared by Sega on Twitter which you can see below, don't resemble the AtGames variant. And finally The Museum Zone on the 2 Floor which is more of a celebration of SEGA console anniversaries (30th for Saturn and 20th for Dreamcast) and centers around the history of SEGA as a whole. We've reached out to Sega for details and will update this post accordingly.
Talking about teaming up, Sega has also announced its partnership with Retro-Bit in order to manufacture classic peripherals and accessories. But as long as Sega is willing to license out its platform instead of making its own hardware, it seems unlikely to get better than this, the most declarative console war victory imaginable.
Assuming that is the case, it would be really exciting, that the company is bringing a retro console in the market.
So as soon as we hear any more news regarding either this partnership or those upcoming titles, we will let you guys know.
