Sonic 2 Gets A Cheeky PC Port in Japan

Remember when Sega of America was producing a Mega Drive classics pack for the Dreamcast? Well, it seems like Sega Japan is also getting in on the compilation action – only on PC. Whereas a single Sega Smash Pack exists in the US right now, in Japan there are three such bundles for Windows computers, one of which includes Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

The Mega Drive sequel is available from Sega PC Japan’s website, in Volume 3 of the ‘Sega Archives from USA’ collection. Volume 2 also appears to be a Japan-only PC release, titled ‘Sega Puzzle Pack’ and containing amongst other things Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine (Volume 1 contains the same games as Sega Smash Pack, if you’re wondering).

The full list of games available on the two Japanese packs are as follows:

Volume 2

  • Columns III
  • Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  • Lose Your Marbles

Volume 3

  • Vectorman 2
  • Kid Chameleon
  • Flicky
  • Super Hang-On
  • Comix Zone
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Shining Force
