Mega Drive and Master System set for Nintendo Switch

Rocket League

SEGA has announced the first slew of games for its SEGA AGES for Nintendo Switch program, which brings classic SEGA titles over to Nintendo Switch. Now Sega has announced (via a live Twitch presentation in Japan on Sunday) that they're re-releasing their own miniature version of the Sega Genesis (known as the Mega Drive in Japan).

This could be huge news, as it would bring a number of long-lost classics to the Nintendo platform, with possibilities ranging from Fighters Megamix and Sega Rally Championship on the Saturn to Crazy Taxi 2 and Samba de Amigo from the Dreamcast line-up.

Will you be picking up Sega AGES when it arrives on Switch? More than 15 games will eventually make their way to the console, 5 games were already revealed during Sega Fes, an event for Sega fans in Tokio: Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, Thunder Force IV, Gain Ground and Alex Kidd. However, a feature in an official Nintendo magazine in Spain has purportedly revealed several crucial details about the Pokemon game on the hybrid console. We certainly will, but we want to hear your take on this revived retro series. The series then came West, with SEGA Ages: Volume 1, a collection of enhanced ports of Space Harrier, OutRun, and After Burner II, released in 1997 on the Sega Saturn.

Octopath Traveler, the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive RPG from Square Enix, has received its first rating courtesy of Australia.
