Big Shipping Week for Sega

segapresents.jpgSega has quite a nice roster of games shipping this week, including two next-gen offerings, a sure-fire PC hit and a revived classic for the GBA. On the next-gen docket, Sega has shipped Sonic The Hedgehog for the 360 (with a PS3 version set to follow later this holiday season) and Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz for the Wii (which I just got in this morning actually- just need to get a Wii now!). Sonic The Hedgehog has been rated “E10+” by the ESRB and retails at $59.95, while Banana Blitz has earned an “E” rating and an MSRP of $49.99.

For the PC gaming crowd, Sega has also shipped Medieval II: Total War, The Creative Assembly’s highly anticipated latest installment in its beloved Total War strategy franchise. You can pick up Medieval II, which has been rated “T” for Teen, at your local game shop now for $49.99, or hold off until tomorrow when it will be made available for download on Steam.

And last but not least, Sega has a little something for you portable gamers with the new release of Sonic The Hedgehog Genesis, an enhanced GBA port of the original Sonic classic released just in time to commemorate Sonic’s 15th birthday! Sonic The Hedgehog Genesis is rated “E” for Everyone and retails at a suggested price of $19.99.

If that still isn’t enough, Sega also has Sega Genesis Collection for the PSP, Charlotte’s Web for the PC, GBA and DS, and Sonic Riders for the PC all due to ship this week as well. Sega certainly seems to be keeping busy for this holiday season…
