Sega Ages announced for the Nintendo Switch, Sonic, Phantasy Star and more

Phantasy Star title screen Sega Ages Bringing Classics To Switch Beginning In Summer 2018

Sega released the original Mega Drive in Japan on October 29th, 1988, and in North America on August 14th, 1989, ultimately selling more than 30 million devices worldwide.

This year was different, however, and there was something for everyone. A few moments ago the arrival of Shenmue I & II to PS4, Xbox One, PC was confirmed and now we have another surprise, as the company announced that a Mega Drive Mini retro console is on its way. That's right, there's a Mega Drive Mini in the works. Both games will feature Japanese AND English voiceovers as well as options for modern vs. classic controls and a fully scalable screen resolution.

Meant as the SEGA version of Nintendo's NES and SNES Classic, the SEGA MegaDrive Mini will go on sale this year, though there wasn't any more details as to what games will be on the console other than possibly a way of asking the audience what they want. Over 15 games will arrive on the Switch eShop this Winter in Australia. If this announcement seems strangely familiar, that's because AtGames has already gifted fans with a classic plug and play system boasting a plethora of games. It will be coming to Japan and the West this summer. Currently, only three games have been announced: Phantasy Star, Thunder Force IV, and Sonic the Hedgehog.

Sega Ages is not a new series. So far, the only entry to have made it to the West was the fifth entry, Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love in 2010 for the PS2 and Wii.
