SEGA Ages Announced For Switch eShop

by April 13, 2018 8 comments

There was a Sonic-related announcement at SEGA FES 2018, but not what you may have expected:

SEGA have announced a SEGA AGES series for Nintendo Switch beginning this Summer with more than 15 titles initially planned. The three announced so far are Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star and Thunder Force III with development handled by M2.

    So basically, this is Sega’s way of bringing their games to Switch, after having them on Wii Virtual Console, just like how SNK is doing the same thing with ACA NeoGeo. Personally, I’m hoping for Sonic 2, Sonic Spinball and Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine in the future.

    So if Sega felt the need to do this, does this confirm no Virtual Console for the Switch?

    Yes I can find negativity in everything.

    Ugh…the fact that this version of Sonic 1 is most likely the M2 3DS version instead of the T&S remakes really irritates me. Give them a console release, already!

    I’d be happy if they used the Taxman’s version instead.

    Some follow-up news from Sega, they say that if Sega Ages on Switch does well, they may add Sega Saturn and Sega Dreamcast titles to the service.

      They should have started with those instead of the ones people have already bought a bajillion times. I hope they’re successful, but I’m through “showing my support” for games, give me the games I want up front.
