SEGA has announced today that they will finally bring their SEGA Ages series to the West and will launch it on the Nintendo Switch. The company announced they would be bringing two familiar titles with the original Sonic The Hedgehog and Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar, both currently on the eShop for $8 each, with more titles on the way. The series has been popular in Japan as they’ve produced legendary titles from the company’s library for individual purchase, in case no one was interested in buying collections. Here’s a few details of new games on the way.
Joining the existing line-up in the coming months, fans of SEGA games and new lovers of retro titles will enjoy classics like Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Out Run, Space Harrier, Columns II, and Thunder Force AC, and of course, Phantasy Star (specific timing coming soon)!Phantasy Star is a groundbreaking sci-fi RPG that follows Alis in her planet-spanning quest to avenge the death of her brother and topple a tyrannical regime. Besides faithfully recreating the original experience, this version adds something for everyone, including a new map display to help novice adventurers and a compendium where longtime fans can view their favorite monsters.
