If you loved last year’s retro-inspired Sonic Mania game on Nintendo Switch, but were still longing for the Blue Blur of old, then Sega just made you very, very happy. The company announced that its ‘Sega Ages’ line of retro game revivals from the Sega Genesis (or Mega Drive), Master System and arcade eras would be headed for Nintendo’s portable console.
Sega made the announcement during a recent fan event, only today confirming a wider western release, Polygon reports, with none other than the first-ever Sonic the Hedgehog leading the first wave of such ‘Ages’ games when they land in Japan, North America and Europe this summer – so, any time after June 21 – likely for digital purchase.
Joining Sega’s leading mascot will be Phantasy Star, Thunder Force 4, Alex Kidd in Miracle World and the original arcade version of Gain Ground. The latter of which was a Sega arcade game first released in 1988 that’s similar to classics like Jackal and Contra.
Retro gaming fans will be particularly pleased to know that Studio M2, the developers responsible for several previous Sega re-releases, will be leading the charge on this project. So, expect to see pixel-perfect versions of these iconic games on your Switch.
