I know there are some gamers out there who miss those Sega classics such as them Shinobi games, Streets of rage and who can forget our very own Sonic from those Sonic the Hedgehog series.
Well guys and girls I have some good news for you, our very own Sega is bringing all the SEGA Mega Drive Classics to Steam!, yes you heard that right all those Sega classics are coming to Steam and the good news does not end here, the Genesis Classics Hub releasing as a free update on Steam!
Now, now to increase the nostalgia and feels, Sega has introduced this new look, so basically once you load up the game on steam, you’ll be introduced with this new look system which is based on a bedroom of an early nineties SEGA fan, coupled with dynamic time-of-day conditions, retro SEGA paraphernalia, a shelf full of MEGA Drive games (including the ones you own) and of course a CRT TV! (Those feels are going to be too damn high)

- spot-on emulation
- local co-op for games that support it
