Sega Ages for Switch Series Could Include Games for Saturn and Dreamcast

Tuesday, 17 Apr, 2018

Now, we find out that they're also releasing a bunch of classic Sega titles on the Nintendo Switch.

Last week, Sega caused quite a stir when it announced it would be bringing a series of classic titles to Switch under the "AGES" banner. For instance, the Sega Ages version of Sonic the Hedgehog will include the super-obscure Mega Play arcade version, and Phantasy Star will add new difficulty settings, an updated save system, and more. SEGA Ages titles will start releasing on Nintendo Switch this Summer.

Still, we're a bit surprised that there doesn't seem to be any plans in place to just release a compilation of classic Sega games for the Switch instead of these individual titles.

These first five games will be Sonic the Hedgehog, Gain Ground, Thunder Force IV, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, and Phantasy Star.

Some additional details about some of the games to be featured in SEGA AGES were revealed at SEGA Fes 2018 in a panel after the announcement.

Below, you can check out screenshots of Thunder Force IV, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, and Gain Ground.

Yesterday I told you that Sega is bringing their own version of the Mini classic console to market later this year.

The Mega Drive Mini (or Sega Genesis Mini, as it'll more likely be named in the U.S.) will include a rewind feature, and all versions except the one released in Japan are said to include a cartridge slot. We don't have the full list yet, but isn't this something that Nintendo should have done like, a year ago? SEGA AGES will launch in North America, Europe, and Japan.
