More Sega classics coming to Steam

It’s been a while since Sega released a batch of Mega Drive/Genesis games on Steam. For those looking to play some Genesis titles on their computers with a little bit more legality on their side, Sega’s preparing a batch of 11 games for launch… sometime.

While no specific date was given for their release, these 11 games will soon be available through Steam at a $2.99 nibble to the wallet.

  • Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
  • Bonanza Bros.
  • Columns
  • Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  • Ecco Jr.
  • Eternal Champions
  • Galaxy Force II
  • Kid Chameleon
  • Ristar
  • Sonic Spinball
  • Super Thunder Blade

I give some applause to Sega for not immediately shipping out the usual suspects, as far as Sonic is concerned, though what is being released isn’t terribly fascinating either as they’re the more popular titles when Sega’s 16-bit days come to mind. Looking to pick any up?
