SEGA Genesis Classics coming to consoles May 29th, 2018

Sega is getting all retro on us again by today announcing that the SEGA Genesis Classics collection is heading to the PS4 and Xbox One. Why is it not announced for the Switch yet… we have no idea! The SEGA Genesis Classics release will hit retail and digital and will include over 50 Genesis/MegaDrive titles.

Either way it’s headed to at least 2 consoles on May 29th, 2018. The already existing PC version will apparently get an update too. See some screens, a punny press release and the announcement trailer.
