Nintendo Switch Getting Classic Sega Games This Summer

Nintendo Switch Getting Classic Sega Games This Summer

Just a few hours ago, we reported on the news that Sega would be introducing a number of classic games from its library on the Nintendo Switch, under the brand name Sega Ages.

The first Sega Ages games will be released this summer in Japan.

While this may set the title apart from the typical family friendly titles Nintendo is known for publishing on its consoles, it's worth noting that Australia is typically much stricter about what is considered offensive or objectionable content in games.




These first five games will be Sonic the Hedgehog, Gain Ground, Thunder Force IV, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, and Phantasy Star. Meanwhile, Sonic the Hegdehog, Gain Ground, and Thunder Force IV are SEGA Genesis titles; Sonic the Hedgehog and Gain Ground came out in 1991, while Thunder Force IV hit store shelves in 1992. With Phantasy Star, you'll be able to change the walking speed, difficulty and more features from the Phantasy Star Collection.

No word on an official price point yet, but expect more details to emerge as we approach a firm release date in the summer. "With enough support, I believe we could include Sega Saturn and Sega Dreamcast games as well". 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. SEGA AGES will launch in North America, Europe, and Japan.
