Sega Ages Bringing Classics To Switch Beginning In Summer 2018

Sega Ages coming to Nintendo Switch

When Sega announced that it would make a major disclosure at its event, Sega Fes 2018, we did not expect it to really take the industry by surprise with far-reaching information. Currently, only three games have been announced: Phantasy Star, Thunder Force IV, and Sonic the Hedgehog.

The titles are expected to begin arriving this summer.

The new retro console, which you can see in the trailer below, is set to land at some point in 2018, thirty years after its initial emergence in Japan back in 1988.

Those who have enjoyed the SEGA Ages releases over the years either on PS2 or the most recent 3DS entries, they certainly know that M2 never ceases to disappoint.

SEGA did say that developer M2 will be responsible for the Switch ports of those classic SEGA games.

You can see the full list of games in the gallery below. According to Sega the games will come with Japanese and English voiceovers and an updated user interface.

Talking about teaming up, Sega has also announced its partnership with Retro-Bit in order to manufacture classic peripherals and accessories. No details have been released on price, features or, most importantly, which games will be included on the cute device. And finally The Museum Zone on the 2 Floor which is more of a celebration of SEGA console anniversaries (30th for Saturn and 20th for Dreamcast) and centers around the history of SEGA as a whole.
