    haven't played those wonder boy games since the arcade in 93 will pick them up

    Looking forward to Alex Kidd.

    If Wonderboy III: The Dragon's Trap was in there I would buy instantly. Without it I'll wait until a sale.

    The Alex Kidd games are pretty poor though

    Hang on a minute! I've just seen that Revenge of Shinobi is in the Alex Kidd pack.

    THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING!!!

    Wishing the original Wonder Boy was in that pack. And wishing they'd offer up the the arcade sequel to Shinobi (Shadow Dancer) as well.

    I wonder if these will be released on PS3.

    If only Joyride had a track editor where you can share tracks then I would be excited.

    I think I'll give the demo's for all three a try... first time I've thought that about XBLA Wednesday in a long time.

    Alex Kidd was crappy when it was included on the Master System, I don't imagine it's aged particularly well.
    When life gives you lemons, rinse them for as much gamerscore as possible.

    Damn straight buddy smile

    As i said in another thread regarding these SEGA classic releases........

    Revenge of Shinobi should NOT be taking a back seat to Alex Kidd.... i mean WTF?

    If anything it should have been a Shinobi ONLY collection consisting of....

    Revenge of Shinobi
    Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi
    Shinobi III: Return of The Ninja Master

    Theres enough Alex Kidd games out there for him to have his own collection too.

    I thought you might show up on this thread Ronster!

    Agree with everything you said - why is Revenge of Shinobi buried in a Alex Kidd title?!?!

    Baffling to me mate.

    I love SEGA, but i could honestly strangle some of the decision makers at the top over there at their HQ.

    Anyway........ tonnes of SEGA goodness in the coming weeks on XBLA huh.

    Can't wait to play Jet Set Radiooooooooooooo again smile

    Would have made more sense to put Alex Kidd in Shinobi World in the collection.
    Shinobi/Alex Kidd Collection... minus the nostalgic headache that is Hang-On
