SEGA will "continue to bring out" more retro games

If you’re a fan of retro gaming, good news – a SEGA boss has said there’s no chance of the brand slowing down when it comes to classic re-releases.

His comments come shortly after the company announced a new version of the Genesis/Mega Drive Mini, a remake of the original 16-bit retro console.

It has 42 games built in, such as Tetris, Virtua Fighter 2, Sonic the Hedgehog, Earthworm Jim and Castlevania.

In the past, SEGA has created microconsoles, licensed its games for Steam, and created PC and console compilations for fans to revisit their favourites.

"When do you ever stop reaching the audience?” SEGA Europe’s John Clark said (picked up by NintendoLife). “There's always an audience there on one format or another.”

"We've got great content and we're never going to saturate the audience for all of that retro content, so I think we're going to continue to bring it out as broad and wide as possible."

Not all of SEGA’s attempts to recreate old classics have been fully successful. Microconsoles have proved unpopular with fans, so we’re curious to see how the new Mega Drive Mini fares come release day in September.

Have you played any of these retro games from this list? If you haven’t make sure you go back and (somehow) get involved right now.
