Sega Ages For Nintendo Switch Could Expand With Dreamcast, Saturn Games

Share

Back in the 1990s, Nintendo and Sega were in virtual hand-to-hand combat for dominance in gaming consoles, and they each had their own gaming franchises, Nintendo with Mario, and Sega with Sonic the Hedgehog.

Still, we're interested in seeing which classic Sega games come to Switch via the Sega Ages brand. The game maker now has more than 15 titles slated for release as part of the Sega Ages franchise.

This is quite interesting as according to the magazine Nintendo's next Pokemon title for the Switch will have some new mechanics, this raises the question at what classic mechanics will be changed and what will be added in replacement.

These first five games will be Sonic the Hedgehog, Gain Ground, Thunder Force IV, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, and Phantasy Star.

Sega Ages was a series of retro compilations released on the Sega Saturn back in mid-90s.

"Sega Ages, the original series that brought classic games to modern consoles, is being rebooted for Nintendo Switch".

There's also some exciting news for fans of the Sega Dreamcast and Saturn consoles too.

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.

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.

The company did not say when we can expect the Sega Mega Drive Mini to be released, except that it will be some time this year.

Gain Ground is the first arcade game that has been announced as part of Sega Ages, and Sega has said that it will not be the only one.
