Sega to Release Mega Drive Classics Emulator on Steam

Sega UK released a video talking about their new emulator for Steam, the Mega Drive Classics Hub. This emulator will make you feel like you’re back in you 90s room as a kid, with a day-night cycle, a bookshelf full of classic Sega games, and a CRT TV – just to polish off the 90s look. It will release on April 28th.

Each game in the Mega Drive will also be compatible with Steam Workshop support, so you’ll be able to add, download, and share your favorite mods right into the games! Not only are mods now available, but the new Mega Drive Hub will include spot-on emulation, local co-op for any game that supports it, graphical enhancement filters (which are optional), a nifty feature that allows you to save anywhere you wish (say goodbye to checkpoints), as well as full controller and keyboard support.

 

You can watch a video showing gameplay right here!

If you already own a game on the Mega Drive Hub, all you have to do is wait for the 28th, and there will be an update waiting for you, but if you don’t own any – check out this website for a list of games you can buy to be eligible. You can also go straight to the Steam website to purchase them, and put them right on your Steam account.
