Classic SEGA games are coming to the Switch

Today, the Japanese gaming luminary announced that the SMS versions of Phantasy Star and Alex Kidd are coming to the Switch. For instance, the Sega Ages version of Sonic the Hedgehog will include the super-obscure Mega Play arcade version, and Phantasy Star will add new difficulty settings, an updated save system, and more.

Some additional details about some of the games to be featured in SEGA AGES were revealed at SEGA Fes 2018 in a panel after the announcement.

While this may set the title apart from the typical family friendly titles Nintendo is known for publishing on its consoles, it's worth noting that Australia is typically much stricter about what is considered offensive or objectionable content in games. Thunder Force IV will see the Styx Mode from the SEGA Saturn edition return, and online leaderboards will also be supported.

All we have to go with when it comes to theSega Ages project that was just recently announced for Switch is an "over 15 games" teaser, but we now have a little more information as to what that lineup actually entails.

The last time Sega released new hardware was 2001 with the Sega Dreamcast, but after the successes of the NES Classic, the Famicom Mini, and the SNES Classic, Sega's COO has said they want to get back into releasing hardware.

Octopath Traveler, the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive RPG from Square Enix, has received its first rating courtesy of Australia.
