The Sega Genesis console was a massive global success.

In addition, the NES and SNES mini will have a new friend, as a cute, downsized version of the Mega Drive was also announced.

As the veterans of video games will know, this console was known as Mega Drive in Japan and Europe and in America, we knew it as Sega Genesis. Sega Ages will be a collection of classic SEGA games that can be individually purchased, instead of the boxed collection coming to other platforms.

SEGA promised it would have "HUGE" news at SEGA FES 2018 earlier today and it delivered, offering not one, not two, but four rather impressive announcements.

Sega Ages Bringing Classics To Switch Beginning In Summer 2018
Sega Ages Announced for Switch

Three of the games confirmed were Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force IV and Phantasy Star. It seems likely we'll see similar fare here, though that hasn't stopped me from maniacally daydreaming of seeing Skies of Arcadia show up on the Switch in this fashion (it absolutely won't).

Sega Ages is not a new series. On that note, we'll be sure to keep you up to date with any pre-order information that comes our way. The Switch versions will be developed by M2, who also programmed the Sega 3D Classics for 3DS. We've reached out to Sega for details and will update this post accordingly.

This could be a change in direction from the company's long-standing relationship with AtGames, whose Sega Genesis Flashback console tried, and failed, to match Nintendo's efforts a year ago.
