Going nowhere

Last week we reported that SEGA is dropping four Sonic games from the Japanese Virtual Console, and naturally our thoughts turned to if and how this would affect users outside Japan. We've now heard back from SEGA Europe with good news.

A SEGA representative confirmed that these removals "will not affect Europe, only Japan". That means Mega Drive games Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic & Knuckles, plus Sonic the Hedgehog on Master System, will remain available to buy in Europe for the foreseeable future.
