Up, over and gone

SEGA is taking four Sonic games off the Virtual Console in Japan.

The Mega Drive/Genesis games Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic & Knuckles will all be removed from sale on 30th March, along with Sonic the Hedgehog on Master System.

There's currently no word on whether these games will remain up in Europe or North America but we're enquiring with SEGA.

These games are just the latest in a line of VC removals that's seen Europe lose six games and three Turbografx-16 games taken away. Four Sonic games are by far the highest profile removals we've seen; let's just hope they stay up in North America and Europe.
