Sega Vintage Collections may be coming to XBLA

A compilation title called Sega Vintage Collection: Alex Kidd & Co. made a brief appearance on the Xbox marketplace earlier today before vanishing into thin air. Thankfully, the crafty team over at Xbox 360 Achievements were able to spot the details before the delisting occurred. Said to be included in the collection are the titular Alex Kidd along with Super Hang-On and Revenge of Shinobi.

Not content to sit back and monitor how that particular collection performs, Sega is also reportedly already working on bringing a second collection out. Both releases would contain all of the usual re-release staples: leaderboards, achievements, recordable and “challenging” new trial modes. Additionally, Sega purportedly has some sort of recordable and downloadable game session feature in the works.

The first collection will also have a few bullet-point elements that were not mentioned in connection with the followup. All three games that come in the download are said to allow players to choose the original Japanese dialogue if they prefer. Super Hang-On would also supposedly come with a 3D mode and in-game juke boxes. No word was given as to possible pricing or release dates, nor was it mentioned whether or not Revenge of Shinobi will allow players to take revenge on evil 3D Japanese juke boxes.
