Sega Ages Brings Master System, Mega Drive & Arcade Classics To Nintendo Switch

Sega FES 2018 Announcement Sega Ages Brings Master System, Mega Drive & Arcade Classics To Nintendo Switch
Sherry Houston | 18 April, 2018, 03:17

Following in the footsteps of the NES and SNES Mini consoles that Nintendo released fairly recently, Sega have officially announced their own Mega Drive Mini at Sega FES 2018. So, expect to see pixel-perfect versions of these iconic games on your Switch. M2 is developing the games.

"SEGA AGES aims to bring prominent titles from SEGA's legacy catalog to fans around the world", an official message from the company reads. If customers could expand the gaming library that comes with the machine with actual physical games bought from vehicle boot sales and retro gaming stores, that'd be a huge ace up Sega's sleeve that Nintendo doesn't now offer with its retro consoles.

Hopefully the Sega Mega Drive Mini will be similarly priced, if not cheaper, to compete with Nintendo's offerings.

Sega is getting in on the nostalgic, miniature console trend. The other titles are expected to be announced in the coming months. In addition, it also comes with updated user interface as well as options to choose voiceovers between English and original Japanese. AtGames is the company responsible for the Atari Flashback and Sega Genesis Flashback mini-consoles. In all there will be over 15 games in the Switch lineup of Sega Ages titles, though the publisher wasn't ready to share pricing or release details at the event.

SEGA Ages originally debuted as SEGA Ages Vol. 1 Shukudai ga Tant-R, a compilation of enhanced arcade ports of Puzzle & Action: Tant-R and Quiz Shukudai wo Wasuremashita, released on the Sega Saturn in 1996 in Japan. That's right, there's a Mega Drive Mini in the works. We've asked Sega to clarify that and to confirm whether or not the Mini Mega Drive will make it to market in the west, and we'll update you here on Gamereactor as soon as we know more. A year ago a company called AtGames released the SEGA Genesis Flashback console, which received some rather scathing reviews from critics.
