Nintendo Magazine confirm gen 8/new mechanics Pokemon Switch

Nintendo teams up with VC fund to work on new tech for Switch

Now, decades after Nintendo essentially eliminated the Sega Genesis console, Sega is having to rely on its former competitor to keep its games in distribution. The game maker now has more than 15 titles slated for release as part of the Sega Ages franchise.

Over the weekend, Sega confirmed Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force 4, and Phantasy Star as the first three Sega Ages titles. The studio was also involved in other retro re-releases from Sega.

Sega revealed that a bunch of classic Sega Mega Drive and Sega Master System titles will be released on Nintendo Switch under the Sega Ages label.

"SEGA AGES aims to bring prominent titles from SEGA's legacy catalog to fans around the world", an official message from the company reads.

Firstly, the company has announced two more classic games that will be coming to the Switch eShop as part of Sega Ages: the Master System's Alex Kidd in Miracle World (the first game in the Alex Kidd series) and the arcade version of Gain Ground. The only downside is that the games aren't fully remastered titles, so some fans might be a bit disappointed with the graphics. "Translating the Pokemon featured text we get this in English: "‏After a lifetime associated with portable consoles, the canonical pokemon will take the leap to a table with its eighth generation. game freak and the pokemon company are rethinking the saga to surprise with new mechanics, either in 2018 or later". It didn't announce a price either. As you would expect from the retro geniuses at M2, these games will stay true to their original forms while incorporating new features that bring a refreshing twist to these classic titles' gameplay.
