Get ready for a blast from the past, 90s gamers: Sega today announced plans to bring more than 50 of its classic games to today’s consoles.

The Sega Genesis Classics collection (aka Sega Mega Drive Classics in the UK) includes Sonic the Hedgehog, Altered Beast, Streets of Rage, and a lot more (see the complete list below). It’s slated to launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 29. An “updated version of the PC release” is also expected, but sadly, Nintendo Switch will be left out of the party for now.

For a peek at what’s in store, check out the video below.

“The collection has … retro classics to experience across every genre; arcade action, shooters, beat’em ups, puzzlers, old favorites and hidden gems, with a raft of modern features,” Sega wrote in the video’s description. “These include online multiplayer, achievements, mirror modes, rewind and save states, meaning players old and new should find revisiting these great games an absolute Sonic 3D Blast.”
