One of the elements we’re most excited about with this announcement though, are the updates to the emulation feature set.

Online or offline multiplayer and enhancement filters

You’ll be able to play the multiplayer titles like Sonic the Hedgehog 2, either on the couch with a friend, or online with anyone in the world. We’ve included graphic enhancement filters to make sure the old games still look great on your spangly, new-aged televisions along with an interactive 3D room UI, which means it’s super-easy to navigate your way to games in the collection from the virtual comfort of a 90s themed gamer’s bedroom!

We’ll have a big ol’ list of Trophies for you to earn while playing, with some seriously challenging ones for players pushing for Platinum.

Horizontal flip mode

One of those will relate to the all-new mirror modes we’re including, meaning you’ll be able to play all the titles with the screen flipped horizontally for an additional challenge. You’ll probably need to make use of the save states to complete all these, as they allow to record your progress anywhere.

There are so many awesome games in this collection but my personal favourite is Streets of Rage II. I remember as a kid, blowing on the cartridge to get it working and then getting stuck into the frenetic boss fights while listening to that, now iconic, soundtrack. We had a lot of fun making GIFs for this one, as you saw above! I’d love to hear about what your favourite Mega Drive games were or which ones you’re most looking forward to playing again on your PS4, in the comments section below.

That’s all from me, but I’ll be back soon with more news about Sega Mega Drive/Genesis Classics for PS4. In the meantime, check out the website for more details: or follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
