Sega today opened the official page for its soon-to-debut "Sega Game Honpo" service, a new subscription-based retro-gaming site where players can download and play an array of 16-bit games on their PCs. Starting November 20, Japanese gamers will be able to subscribe and play a growing selection of Mega Drive/Genesis games via the site, and Sega will gradually expand the library of games offered on a monthly basis.

The service charges a monthly fee of 1,000 yen (about $9) for unlimited downloads. 30 games will be available at launch, with about 10 new games joining them each month -- Sega plans to eventually build a library of more than 100 games, as well as community features where retro-gaming enthusiasts can meet and chat, and it's even considering releasing some Mega CD games. The initial selection of games on offer (reported in Japanese magazine Dorimaga) is as follows:

16t
Alien Storm
Arrow Flash
Bonanza Brothers
Chakan: The Forever Man
Doki Doki Penguin Land
E-SWAT
Ecco the Dolphin
G-LOC
Golden Axe II
Gunstar Heroes
Hyper Marble
Jewel Master
Labyrinth of Mystery
Party Quiz Mega Q
Phantasy Star II
Puddle Fighter
Putter Golf
Puyo Puyo
Shadow Dancer
Shining in the Darkness
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Sonic the Hedgehog 3
Sonic & Knuckles
Sonic Race
Space Harrier II
Super Thunder Blade
Sword of Vermilion
The Ooze

You can check out the Sega Game Honpo web page at sega-gamehompo.jp. Though the service isn't available to prospective subscribers outside Japan, keep a good thought for news of such in the future.
