Five more SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive games are being added to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service. These five games are Altered Beast, Toejam & Earl, Sword of Vermilion, Thunder Force II, and Dynamite Headdy. Out of the five games, Thunder Force II is probably the most notable, as it was skipped over in favor of its two sequels Thunder Force III and Thunder Force IV with stuff like the SEGA Genesis Mini or the SEGA AGES series, until now. All five games are the same across every region, and are available now for anyone that uses the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack Service.
ToeJam & Earl
The ToeJam & Earl: Back to the Groove vinyl has opened its pre-orders via the official Funkotron Shop! The vinyl set will set you back a cool $44.95 plus shipping. It seems like a ton of money but the vinyl set comes with a ton of things! The ToeJam & Earl: Back to the Groove vinyl set comes with:
- 2xLP (ToeJam Red and Earl Orange)
- Soundtrack on CD
- Digital Soundtrack code
- 24 page comic-style art book
While its cool that the package comes with the digital code and CD, it would have been cool to get a cheaper package with only the art book and vinyl.
