More SEGA Ages Games Have Been Announced

More SEGA Ages Games Have Been Announced

Most of these compilations never left Japan, but many hardcore retro gaming enthusiasts and Sega fans still consider Sega Ages to be the gold standard when it comes to classic game re-releases.

The Sega Ages ports are being handled by M2, the studio behind the Sega 3D Classics series on 3DS.

With its official Japanese reveal last week - and confirmation that Alex Kidd and Ground Gain are joining the lineup - Sega has now officially confirmed Sega AGES (the revived retro collection) is headed to Nintendo Switch in the West sometime in the summer of 2018.

Me neither, but that doesn't stop me from getting excited about FIVE classic Sega Master System titles coming to the Switch very soon, with more to follow. Now we just need to wait for E3 to roll around so Sega can provide us with a release schedule, as well as when Saturn, Dreamcast and arcade games will start rolling in.

When asked about other systems, Sega said that if Sega Ages does well past the initial 15 games that will be offered, Dreamcast and Saturn games could also make it in the future.

In addition to delivering the top-notch emulation M2 is known for, the new Sega Ages re-releases will include new content and features.

So far, Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, Thunder Force IV, Alex Kidd in Miracle World and Gain Ground for Switch have been confirmed this summer, although they have not given details of the format or the price. The Mega Drive has seen a miniature version released in the past, although it wasn't manufactured by Sega and suffered from multiple emulation issues, so hopefully this one will fare a lot better.

Octopath Traveler, the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive RPG from Square Enix, has received its first rating courtesy of Australia.
