More Sega classics on their way to PSN, XBLA

Sega has announced they plan to bring more classic games from the Master System/Genesis era to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade this month. Sega is calling this latest wave of classics “Vintage Collection 3,” and that moniker is more than apt.

Xbox 360 gamers will receive 12 Sega classics over the next two weeks. The titles will be released as special three-game collections for a very nice price (800 Microsoft Points/$10 each). Check out the release schedule right here:

Monster World Collection (5/23)
Wonder Boy in Monster Land (Arcade)
Wonder Boy in Monster World (Genesis)
Monster World IV (Genesis)

Alex Kidd & Co. Collection (5/23)
Super Hang-On (Arcade)
The Revenge of Shinobi (Genesis)
Alex Kidd in Miracle World (Master System)

Golden Axe Collection (5/30)
Golden Axe (Arcade)
Golden Axe 2 (Genesis)
Golden Axe 3 (Genesis)

Streets of Rage Collection (5/30)
Streets of Rage (Genesis)
Streets of Rage 2 (Genesis)
Streets of Rage 3 (Genesis)

Sega also has six classic titles on tap for the PlayStation Store on May 22. Why the difference? Because the PSN got all three Streets of Rage games and all three Golden Axe games months ago. So with that knowledge, we know that Wonder Boy in Monster Land, Wonder Boy in Monster World, Monster World IV, Super Hang-On, The Revenge of Shinobi, and Alex Kidd in Miracle World will all be available as individual downloads on the PSN this week for $4.99 each.
