    SEGA will be bringing a new collection of old games to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in the form of another Genesis Collection. While the company hasn't formally announced the game yet, an announcement trailer went live on their YouTube (now deleted), and press images were leaked of the boxart. In the trailer, games like Sonic 1, Golden Axe, Gunstar Heroes, ToeJam and Earl, Ristar, and other classic Genesis titles were shown off in what will be an assortment of over 50 games. It's not currently known if Backbone Entertainment, the team who made the Genesis Collection on PS3/360, will be involved in this version. It's scheduled to release on May 29, 2018. Notably, there was no mention of a Nintendo Switch version.

    Hopefully we get a port of Sonic 2 for toasters and microwaves soon. Goodness knows they're on literally everything else at this point.

    I really hope their emulator doesn't suck this time around :P
    The Saturn is extremely hard to emulate.

    The same thing happened with their Steam emulators that ran on top of Unity, PCs don't have blast processing for their crappy emulators either :lol:

    ...eh. As most others have said... no Switch port, who cares.

    Also, I doubt it'll have Sonic 3&K, and they'll just be emulations instead of Whitehead ports...

    What I'd give for the Whitehead ports on Switch.

    He only did Sonic 2 and Sonic CD IIRC. The rest is just garbage emulators based off really old versions of Gens.

    Sonic 1, 2, and CD were all him. Sonic 3 was pitched but Sega can't do anything about it, because of the music licensing issues.

    The fun thing about the previous collection on Steam is that the ROM files were all in standard formats, unencrypted, in a folder. If you wanted to use an Everdrive or any emulator of your choice and still "go legit" you totally could.

    The "HD" mobile port of Sonic 1 was also his, and he did a proof of concept port of Sonic 3 (just the first level).

    I meant the other games on Steam, that use their Classic launcher and their "new" launcher, the sound emulation is utter garbage compared to Genesis Plus and Kega Fusion. They didn't even
    get that part right.


    I can even prove it with a video I made.

    I forgot
    I got myself an actual Genesis and a Mega EverDrive, so I'm all set on this end really.

    As if anyone really needs this anyways, they've ported the same games to practically every other platform.
