SEGA of America announced today that SEGA AGES, the original series that brought classic games to modern consoles, is being rebooted for Nintendo Switch. This series of retro titles will be launching in Japan, North America, and Europe starting in Summer 2018.
The first five SEGA AGES titles have been announced, including such games as the Sega Master System versions of Phantasy Star and Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Sega Genesis versions of Thunder Force IV and Sonic the Hedgehog, as well as a port of the original arcade version of Gain Ground. This collection will mark the first time that several SEGA titles have had official launches in the West.

Developed by M2, the Japanese developer known for ports of classic games such as the popular SEGA 3D Classics series on the Nintendo 3DS, SEGA AGES aims to bring prominent titles from SEGA’s legacy catalog to fans around the world. From a selection of home console classics, to a multitude of perfectly-emulated arcade games, SEGA AGES gives fans the ability to build their own retro SEGA collection unlike any other.
