SEGA AGES: Alex Kidd in Miracle World Launching in Japan February 21st for Nintendo Switch

Monday, February 18th, 2019

After what feels like a lifetime, the next SEGA AGES game is finally coming to the Japanese Nintendo eShop. Alex Kidd in Miracle World will launch this Thursday, February 21st, at a price point of 925 JPY. The game boasts a slew of new features, that we recently reported on.

There’s no word on a Western release date currently. SEGA America previously released a press release stating Gain Ground and Puyo Puyo would launch in the SEGA AGES line in the West this month, but it would appear those plans have gone down the toilet. We’ll keep you updated on any news on the Western front.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World Now The Next SEGA AGES Release, New Features Detailed

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

UPDATE 14/02/19 – It’s now been confirmed that the Time Trial challenges from the 360 and PS3 port of Alex Kidd in Miracle World are indeed in this port. The article has been adjusted accordingly.

SEGA has revealed through its Japanese Twitter account that Puyo Puyo is no longer set to be the next SEGA AGES title – instead the Master System classic Alex Kidd in Miracle World will be the next game coming to the Nintendo Switch lineup.

The game will come with a hefty slew of new features to boot. Now before each stage starts, a newly drawn piece of art provides a glimpse of the area ahead, not too dissimilar to the likes of Kirby’s Adventure on the NES. If that wasn’t enough, the game will now have an arranged FM soundtrack alongside its original tunes. This also includes a previously unused track finding its way into the game. In addition, there’s changes to the continue system and a rewind function to facilitate new players, a standard and expected feature of M2’s ports. Time trials for certain stages, first seen in the SEGA Vintage Collection port of the game, will also be in this port.

Unfortunately the game doesn’t have a release date yet, nor does the seemingly delayed Puyo Puyo. We’ll update if one is revealed down the road.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World and Gain Ground Join SEGA AGES for Switch Line-Up

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

Two additional games have been announced for the upcoming SEGA AGES releases for Nintendo Switch – Alex Kidd in Miracle World, and Gain Ground.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World is the second Master System title to be announced, while Gain Ground marks the first arcade game announcement for the series.

Currently, all is known is that they’ll be part of the collection, with no details divulged as far as extra features. However, we’d be surprised if Gain Ground didn’t take advantage of the Switch’s potential for Tate Mode!

It’s also been revealed that Sonic 1 will include the Mega Play arcade version, and that Phantasy Star will inherit its features from the PS2 AGES Collection release.

The games will start being released in Summer, with a simultaneous worldwide release planned.

The game is free to download via this link and can be played via emulator or flash carts. Take a look below for a short let’s play from us that shows the game in action:
