    Game rating website ESRB lists the following seven Sega titles when searching for the Wii console:

    * Altered Beast
    * Columns
    * Ecco the Dolphin
    * Golden Axe
    * Ristar
    * Sonic the Hedgehog
    * Toe Jam & Earl

    While this isn't an official confirmation that the games are Wii-bound, it does seem to confirm that they have at least been submitted for ESRB rating, a logical first step.

    Ah boy Echo the Dolphin :D

    The two Sega games I wanted the most are on there... now that is super cool.

    Don't think I'll use virtual console though if I have to buy a whole new controller just to use it. I already have them emulated on my comptuer, which has a controller, and if I really want to get serious I can dust off the old Mega Drive and use it.

    The 4 highlighted ones are games I used to own!

    Toe Jam & Earl was my favourite, I loved it! Doubt I will really use VC though, although it will be good to know that these games are at are disposal!!

    ...now, I wonder if Bubsy will be a VC title...(anyone remember this?...this really was my favourite!)

    Bubsy was great... 'till he went 3D

    Golden Axe was one of my favourite games, but I hated Echo the Dolphin. I don't know why I hated it, I just did. Also me and my mate use to always play Toe Jam & Earl, mainly 'cos we always use to fight other who got to be Tails in sonic 2 but in Toe Jam & Earl I was always Earl.

    I was hoping for Streets of Rage, but I'll gladly take Golden Axe. :cool:
    Nice to see the forgotten gem Ristar as well (also available as a secret game on Sonic Mega Collection).

    So true...Bubsy 3D was pure rubbish.

    Napalmbrain, thanks for mentioning streets of rage! OMG the best game I ever used to own! I always used to play as Blaze, she was the best!

    I wonder if there will be this other game...I cant remember the name, but it used to scare me...

    ...you used to play as this elephant (wearing a nice hat), and you used to shoot peanuts out of your trunk. One of the bosses on the game was this mad pizza maker, and he used to throw pizzas at you :sick: It was enough to give me nightmares!

    Why not just buy the Sega Collection for the GC? I got it for 20 bucks and it has every sonic that has come out (before gamecube ones) which most you have to unlock by beating the other ones.

    Man, Golden Axe.... I used to spend hours playing it on my friend's Sega, and now I go down to my local movie theater and play it for hours there.

    The all time best arcade adventure game! Just make sure you hop on the red dragon's back.... lmao

    Sadly it's missing Sonic CD (probably the best Sonic game of all). Apart from that, it's a pretty decent collection.
