Wreck-It Ralph arrives on Genesis and Mega Drive

The film Wreck-It Ralph featured several retro gaming cameos. It seems only fitting that it appears on a retro system. There was a Wreck-It Ralph arcade game. Moreover, Wreck-It Ralph, being a playable character in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, is no stranger to Sega. But now the game is playable on the Genesis/Mega Drive.

The game is available as a ROM file. So, one would need a flash cart in order to play it on actual hardware.

From the trailer, the game looks very fitting. It has a level design that pays homage to the arcade games of the late 70s and early 80s. I do have to admit the choice of a 16-bit Sega system seems odd. 16-bit games generally play quite different. Plus, Wreck-It Ralph is very similar to a certain Nintendo game. But, hey, I’m not complaining. I do enjoy that Wreck-It Ralph appears along Sega’s name a lot. Most of all, I love that old Sega consoles are still getting homebrew releases and am excited to try this game out.
