Following the leaked information regarding the Monster World and Alex Kidd & Co. Vintage Collections’ release via XBLA, was the news that PEGI had officially rated several Golden Axe and Streets of Rage games, also for release via XBLA, giving rise to speculations of further Vintage Collection releases. Such suspicions have been confirmed, with both game series briefly popping up on Xbox.com as Sega Vintage Collections. Check out this link to gamefront.de for tons of juicy screenshots!
Each collection features all three of the mains games in each series, with the screenshots suggesting a mix of Mega Drive/ Genesis and arcade versions. This may be a disappointment to those expecting the arcade exclusive Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder to make an appearance, especially considering that all six home console versions of these games have been previously released on the Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection/ Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection. We’ll be sure to update you all as more details become available.
