Surprise! Sega Genesis Collection coming

Joystiq Staff

If you're a Joystiq reader with a very good memory, then the latest news that Sega is releasing a massive game collection of Genesis titles to the PlayStation 2 and PSP should come as no surprise. But, now that it's official, have a look at what is in store for the Sega Genesis Collection.

Planned for release sometime this fall -- we were told November before -- this virtual time machine will have the following games:

  • Alex Kidd: The Enchanted Castle, Altered Beast, Bonanza Bros, Columns, Comix Zone, Decap Attack, Ecco the Dolphin, Ecco: The Tides of Time, Ecco Jr., Eternal Champions, Flicky, Gain Ground, Golden Axe, Golden Axe II, Golden Axe III, Phantasy Star II, Phantasy Star III, Phantasy Star IV, Ristar, Shadow Dancer: Secret of Shinobi, Shinobi III, Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Super Thunderblade, Sword of Vermillion, Vectorman, Vectorman 2, Virtua Fighter 2
There are also these unlockable games available on the PS2 only: Zaxxon, Tac/Scan, and Zektor. There will be "wireless multiplayer" on the PSP, but we're not sure to what extent.

And yes, we're still a little upset ToeJam and Earl isn't included. Give us ToeJam! Are there any games missing that you would sell your soul to see in this collection?
