Sega Classics Arcade Collection is the name of two compilations released for the Sega CD. Despite their titles, both versions of Sega Classics Arcade Collection include only the Sega Genesis ports of all the games included.

Sega Classics Arcade Collection 4-in-1[edit]

Released in 1992, the 4-in-1 version of Sega Classics was sold with the Sega Multi-Mega/CDX, and retailed at $59.99. In some instances it was also bundled with the Sega CD version of Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective and with the Sega CD itself.

Games

The version of Revenge of Shinobi included in this collection is software revision 1.02, including only the Spider-Man boss-fight, with Godzilla and Batman replaced with substitute enemies.

Golden Axe is the only game in the collection that has external CD audio (aside from Columns but only the title screen track uses CD audio) and it oddly enough uses the arcade version's soundtrack. However, it is heavily based on the Mega Drive port with the voices changed to higher quality voices (none of them, besides the townspeople screaming in Turtle Village, are from the Genesis or Arcade version).

Streets of Rage is generally the same as the Genesis version aside from the voices, which are CD quality enhanced.

Sega Classics Arcade Collection 5-in-1[edit]

Again sold only in a pack-in with the Sega CD, the collection added Super Monaco GP but was otherwise identical, including the version of Revenge of Shinobi included. In Europe the game was re-titled Sega Classics Arcade Collection Limited Edition.
