Sega Ages coming to Nintendo Switch

Sega Ages coming to Nintendo Switch

Announced at Sega Fes 2018, the Sega Ages lineup is now set to include over 15 titles from the Master System and Genesis libraries.

Yes, you have read the title correctly, SEGA has recently announced that it will be bringing more than 15 of their, classic SEGA Ages titles on Nintendo Switch. We've seen several major news drops this evening from that, including Shenmue I and II getting a release bundle on modern consoles. Since M2 has a really good reputation for handling emulation of the re-released games especially with the Sega Ages title. However, the Switch was seemingly absent from this announcement.

Lastly, SEGA revealed that a new entry in the Sakura Taisen (known as Sakura Wars in the West) series is in the works. Multiple collections have been released for various consoles in different regions in the past, featuring games such as the Phantasy Star titles, Golden Axe, Panzer Dragoon, and others. The Switch versions will be developed by M2, who also programmed the Sega 3D Classics for 3DS.

The miniature version of the classic 16-bit Sega system has been given a 2018 release date, although it's unclear if it will launch in the USA and Europe. The company has dabbled with retro hardware before: it has licensed its name to hardware company AtGames (which has also done retro Atari consoles) to produce Genesis clones, including the Sega Genesis Flashback that Polygon wasn't a huge fan of.
