Sega Classics Coming To XBLA & PSN

Got a hankering to play some obscure Sega Genesis titles?  You’re in luck!  A variety of retro Sega games are coming to Xbox and PS3 starting May 22nd.

According to the SEGA Blog, PlayStation Network gets first crack at the games, all releasing May 22nd which includes variety of individual Sega games priced at $4.99 each:

  • Wonder Boy in Monster Land
  • Wonder Boy in Monster World
  • Monster World IV
  • Revenge of Shinobi
  • Alex Kidd in Miracle World
  • Super Hang-On

Microsoft is of course being difficult, so they will stagger these in two collections week apart:

May 23rd sees the release of two collections for 800 MSP:

  • The Monster World Collection (The Wonder Boy titles  and Monster World)
  • Alex Kidd & Co. Collection (Shinobi, Super Hang-On and Alex Kidd)

Microsoft does see an exclusive in the form of the Streets of Rage and Golden Axe trilogies, which both release May 30th, also for 800 MSP.

Are you excited about these?  Do you plan on picking these up?  I never played Alex Kidd, but I wouldn’t mind digging back into Streets of Rage.
