PEGI rate Golden Axe, Streets of Rage and more for XBLA

By now we’re all fully aware of the fantastic Wonder Boy Vintage Collection for XBLA coming our way as well as the news of another more mish-mash collection featuring Alex Kidd in Miracle World. but now the European game rating system PEGI has rated several more Sega classics for XBLA, suggesting that more retro-bundles are in the works.

The newly rated games include beat-em-up classics Golden Axe, Golden Axe 3, Streets of Rage, and Streets of Rage 3. PEGI have also the aforementioned Wonder Boy in Monster Land, Wonder Boy in Monster World, and Monster World IV as well as Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Super Hang-On and The Revenge of Shinobi; the latter three comprising the Alex Kidd & Co. collection. Well, it certainly looks like some retro-tastic, and bank balance reducing, times are ahead. However, one could say that are Sega shamelessly ‘whoring out’ their classic titles onto yet another gaming platform. And what do you, the Sega fans, think? Let us know in the comments below!

    even though I own most of these games on multiple consoles I feel my wallet is still going to get lighter.

  • If Streets Of Rage 3 has online play then I’m sold. We could add that to the game night list.

    I already have the genesis collection disc on 360 so I’ll probably pass on most of these, still good to see Sega still bringing genesis games to XBLA, though.

    Scotty has a point, my first reaction was “bleh, got the Gene collection.” But the collection doesnt have online co-op.

    Which begs the question: did Sega purposefully withhold online co-op so they could nickle and dime us with later XBLA versions?

    In truth, i’m a bit annoyed at some of the re-re-re-releases.
