Sega Ages announced for the Nintendo Switch, Sonic, Phantasy Star and more

Sega Mega Drive Mini

As a one-time Genesis kid whose nostalgic sweet spot is a Sega Genesis, I feel qualified to say that the Genesis deserves better from its owner.

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.

The news will hopefully alleviate some disappointment around the news that SEGA Mega Drive Classics is not releasing on Nintendo Switch.

Sega Ages Bringing Classics To Switch Beginning In Summer 2018
Sega Ages Announced for Switch

Three of the games confirmed were Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force IV and Phantasy Star.

As promising as that sounds, the source interview linked appears to suggest that Sega is simply interested in distributing the AtGames Mega Drive Flashback which, per the review above.is not great. Sega Ages is the label Sega give its downloadable back catalogue.

Lastly, SEGA revealed that a new entry in the Sakura Taisen (known as Sakura Wars in the West) series is in the works. If this announcement seems strangely familiar, that's because AtGames has already gifted fans with a classic plug and play system boasting a plethora of games. Any legacy SEGA titles you'd particularly like to see on Switch? The Switch versions will be developed by M2, who also programmed the Sega 3D Classics for 3DS. As soon as there's any other details from Sega, we'll be sure to include them here, but in the meantime you'll have to content yourself with a snap from the Sega Japan Twitter feed.
