Nintendo Switch Getting Classic Sega Games This Summer

Retro Sega Games coming to Nintendo Switch this summer

Based on the game's mature themes, sexual references and violence, it has received an M rating in the country and will be reccomended for sale only to those 15 years of age or older. The new Switch Sega Ages games will be the work of retro masters M2 (who also handled the original Sega Saturn releases). Three titles confirmed during the Sega festival are Thunder Force 4, Phantasy Star, and Sonic the Hedgehog. However, the nostalgia doesn't seem like it'll be stopping anytime soon, because now a ton of classic Sega games are coming to the Switch and let's face it: it's going to be awesome.

M2, the developer behind the classic 3D conversions of Sega games for the 3DS, is behind the games, so you can expect perfection straight from the source code - along with other notable features. Over time, the SEGA Ages series grew to encompass enhanced ports of dozens of games across multiple systems.

Yesterday I told you that Sega is bringing their own version of the Mini classic console to market later this year. Not all of the games that are involved in the collection has been announced yet, however favorites like Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star and Alex Kidd are said to be part of it.

When Nintendo announced that they were working on a main Pokemon game for the Switch, fans everywhere began speculating just what the Pokemon Company could do with a Pokemon game if they were given the full power of a console. Personally, I'm hoping for Ristar and Super Fantasy Zone to make the cut, and will always welcome more classic Puyo Puyo to the world.

Still, we're interested in seeing which classic Sega games come to Switch via the Sega Ages brand.
