Ask any gamer who has been playing since the “golden age” or earlier and they will tell you sometimes it’s just all about the classics. Why do we revisit games like Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario Bros., or even Galaxian and Tetris for that matter? Because these games hold a special place in our hearts and take us back in time to a simpler day when we were enchanted without the need for Hi-Def, 3DHD, Motion Tracking, or even Standard-Def for that matter. Sega understands, hears our cries, and is doing something about it.
A short while ago DualShockers let the world know of Sega’s world domination plan (re-releasing classics to the PC platform via digital distribution gateways) and now that plan gets its next set of marching orders. Hope you are ready to be assaulted with another group of Genesis classics from the hay-day of 16 bit gaming. Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle, Dr. Robotnick’s Mean Bean Machine, and Eternal Champions, among others, are heading to digital distribution platforms starting at $2.99 each (depending on the title) and will be available for download soon.
