Mega Hit Series
From Sega Retro
The Mega Hit Series was a budget label for re-released Sega Mega Drive games in North America. Little is known about the requirements for this label, but it is assumed that the game must have sold many copies before acquiring it. North America also had the Sega Classic label for older games which were re-released, so it is also assumed the Mega Hit Series only applied to games which reached this milestone quite late (post 1994), or after Majesco were given the license to distribute Sega products (though Super Monaco GP was released under both labels). A similar situation was seen in Australia with the Sega Gold Collection and Sega Platinum Collection budget labels.
Games under this label were distributed in cardboard boxes to keep manufacturing costs down.
Three games in the series, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Taz in Escape from Mars and Vectorman were known to be released twice under this label. Some versions have the Sega Seal of Quality in the bottom left hand corner, while presumably later releases do not. No other games in the series carry the seal.
