Eventually, Sega plans to release around 15 Sega Ages titles on Switch, but they'll be kicking things off with Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force IV, Phantasy Star, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, and the arcade version of Gain Ground. Now, we find out that they're also releasing a bunch of classic Sega titles on the Nintendo Switch.

SEGA Ages senior producer has revealed that the team is thinking about what is next for the compilation title. 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.

During the Sega Fes 2018 held at the weekend, the Japanese company announced the return of the SEGA Ages series on Nintendo Switch, with the aim of reviving a selection of great classics of the "80s and" 90s.

Yesterday I told you that Sega is bringing their own version of the Mini classic console to market later this year. There's no word on the game's exact release date, but Sega has stated that Europe, Japan, and North America will receive the first wave of classic Sega titles for Switch sometime this summer. AtGames wouldn't reveal which games are included, but they did confirm one game that won't be on the new console.

The first three confirmed titles are Sonic, Thunder Force IV and Phantasy Star.

As somebody who's into both Sega and retro games, I've heard a lot about Sega Ages, but I've never had a chance to try out the series for myself. We don't have the full list yet, but isn't this something that Nintendo should have done like, a year ago?
