SEGA Genesis, Master System Games Coming to Nintendo Switch

Sega FES 2018 Announcement

Sega FES 2018 Announcement

According to Polygon, more than 15 classic games will be released for Nintendo Switch through the Sega Ages program starting summer. The overall range of games that the Mega Drive Mini offers are still unknown and is expected to be arriving in Japan this year.

In addition to delivering the top-notch emulation M2 is known for, the new Sega Ages re-releases will include new content and features. If customers could expand the gaming library that comes with the machine with actual physical games bought from vehicle boot sales and retro gaming stores, that'd be a huge ace up Sega's sleeve that Nintendo doesn't now offer with its retro consoles.

There's been a slew of announcements from Sega at this year's Sega FES event. More details are likely coming around the bend soon, as Sega will want to keep excitement high by consistently revealing the other titles that will be re-released under the Sega Ages banner.

European residents with long memories will remember the frustration of having to wait the additional two years until the Mega Drive arrived on United Kingdom shores.

Strong to severe storms likely Saturday afternoon
Damaging wind is more likely to be the theme during the morning storms with flooding being the bigger threat in the second round. By late Saturday afternoon rain will change over to a rain/snow mix and eventually snow over central and southern Iowa.

Now word yet on pricing or how these may potentially be packaged, though with Ages being worked on by M2 it could see a similar release structure to the Sega 3D Classics line on 3DS.

Back when console games are running 16-bit graphics, Sega and Nintendo were rivals in the gaming industry. The last hardware venture of Sega was in 2001 when it released the Sega Dreamcast, which got a disappointing reception from the public. The Mega Drive Mini is being launched to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the console, so hopefully Sega will put some effort behind it this time.

Sega announced this weekend that it's prepping a new Mega Drive Mini to take advantage of the recent craze for retro hardware.
