EurogamerSEGA's preparing another compilation of Mega Drive games for release this autumn.
SEGA Genesis Collection - likely to be renamed SEGA Mega Drive Collection or similar for Europe - is being compiled by Backbone Entertainment for PlayStation 2 and PSP and includes around 30 games.
These include everything from Sonic The Hedgehog and Ristar to Alex Kidd and Ecco the Dolphin, including a number of games plucked from the same series. Golden Axe, for example, counts for three entries, while you can also expect to find games II, III and IV in the Phantasy Star series.
Both the PS2 and PSP versions will include interviews with the original game developers and a museum area full of game-facts, as well as hints. The PSP version will also offer wireless multiplayer, but as a counterweight the PS2 version will include three unlockable games (Tac/Scan, Zektor and Zaxxon) not available on the PSP.
You can find a few screenshots of the games in action elsewhere on the site, and the full game-list, uncovered by 1UP, follows.

Golden Axe II
Golden Axe III
