Sega to release classic Genesis titles on Steam!

May 22, 2010

You certainly can’t do this on Nintendo. Joystiq reports that starting June 1st, a slew of classic Genesis titles will be made available for digital PC platforms such as Steam:

On June 1, PC users will be able to download Golden Axe, Ecco the Dolphin, Comix Zone, and Vectorman, “from $2.99.” We don’t yet know how the prices will vary per game, but even if just one is that cheap, it’s quite a savings over the $8 Virtual Console price.

The screenshots sent out by Sega also include images of Gain Ground, Altered Beast, Space Harrier, Crack Down, Sonic 3D Blast, and Shadow Dancer, so we can expect to see those games from the distant past on PC in the near future.

Sega has posted on their official blog, the full list of early releases:

“It’s exciting to be able to offer these classic games to a new audience” said Nick Pili, Network Business Director at SEGA Europe. “Delivered via our digital partners, every PC owner can now enjoy these timeless masterpieces whenever they want!”

Comic Zone
Altered Beast
Crack Down
Gain Ground
Ecco the Dolphin
Shadow Dancer: the Secret of Shinobi
Golden Axe
Sonic 3D Blast
Vectorman
Shinobi III
Space Harrier II

If you don’t own a console and felt left out, because of releases such as the Mega Drive Ultimate Collection, then worry no more. Sega’s got cheap classic games for you.
