A few weeks ago, Sega announced the Sega Genesis Classics collection. The compilation comes with over fifty games ranging from platformers, beat 'em ups, shoot 'em ups, and more. Ahead of its May 29, 2018 launch, the title is currently available for preorder on Xbox One with a ten percent discount.
Note that the physical edition comes with a double-sided Golden Axe and Streets of Rage poster. Every day from now until launch, Sega will be posting a video from one of the collection's games.
