Mega Drive and Master System set for Nintendo Switch

Mega Drive and Master System set for Nintendo Switch

While The Big N continues to drag its feet on any sort of Switch Virtual Console, Sega has revealed it will be reviving the Sega Ages series on the system. More than 15 games will eventually make their way to the console, 5 games were already revealed during Sega Fes, an event for Sega fans in Tokio: Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, Thunder Force IV, Gain Ground and Alex Kidd. The ports are being handled by M2, the Japanese developer known for the SEGA 3D Classics series on the Nintendo 3DS.

The last time Sega released new hardware was 2001 with the Sega Dreamcast, but after the successes of the NES Classic, the Famicom Mini, and the SNES Classic, Sega's COO has said they want to get back into releasing hardware.

Still, we're interested in seeing which classic Sega games come to Switch via the Sega Ages brand.

Yesterday I told you that Sega is bringing their own version of the Mini classic console to market later this year.

The very good news is that these games are being developed by M2. Two other games - Ground Gain and Thunder Force IV - will be included in the 15-game collection.

Still, we're a bit surprised that there doesn't seem to be any plans in place to just release a compilation of classic Sega games for the Switch instead of these individual titles.

As somebody who's into both Sega and retro games, I've heard a lot about Sega Ages, but I've never had a chance to try out the series for myself.

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