Saturday, April 14th, 2018

UPDATE 20:10

Some more details have come to light since the announcement, mostly courtesy of Sam Mullen, producer at Atlus USA. Most notable of these is the confirmation that the set will include more than just Mega Drive titles – arcade games will be included too. In addition, Mullen confirmed that “every game will have something new.”

Finally, it’s been revealed by Thunder Force IV’s presence at SEGA Fes itself that it includes “Styx Mode”, previously exclusive to the Saturn’s Thunder Force Gold Pack 2. This mode allows you to play as the Thunder Force 3 ship.

More info on the new AGES series will be released at tomorrow’s “Classic Game Stage” event, as part of SEGA Fes. We’ll bring you any new announcements that come from it.

ORIGINAL POST

M2 are back and are leading development of up to 15 new SEGA ports of classic titles for the Nintendo Switch.

The new SEGA Ages collection will feature ports of Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star and Thunder Force IV which is currently playable on the show floor at SEGA Fes 2018. It is likely that Thunder Force IV will end up being the first title in the series to launch, but there is currently no news on a release date.

SEGA Looking Into Re-Releasing Shenmue 1&2

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

shenmue

Sega’s European marketing director Jon Rooke has confirmed that SEGA are, “exploring ways to re-release the original two Shenmue titles.”

This is by no means a confirmation that the re-releases are going to happen, but this public confirmation that the company are at least making an attempt to bring the games out of retirement is certainly a positive one.

Fingers crossed a new generation of gaming fans get to play the original two Shenmue titles before the third game drops on the projected release date of December 2017.

SEGA to Port Valkyria Chronicles to PC 6 Years After Initial Release

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Valkyria Chronicles returns!

The cult-classic, 3rd person strategy game will be re-released on PC courtesy of SEGA but sadly that’s all we know at this time. We’d speculate that Hardlight Studio are behind the port as they previously ported The Creative Assembly’s Viking: Battle for Asgard to PC back in 2012.

SEGA have promised more information soon but other than that it’s pretty exciting to see that one of the PS3′s underrated gems is now getting a wider release.

3DS Empire of Steel is a Proper Remake

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

The re-release of classic Mega Drive shmup Empire of Steel for 3DS is actually a proper remake and not just a simple port. Check out the fancy new graphics above.

The game is not being published by SEGA but it’s being developed by Starfish who are responsible for Elminage. The new version features improved graphics, stereoscopic 3D and rebalanced difficulty.

Empire of Steel Getting Re-Released for 3DS in Japan

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Mega Drive shmup Empire of Steel (or Steel Empire depending on what region you live in) is being re-released on the Japanese 3DS eShop.

No other details like release dates or whether it’s a port of the Mega Drive or GBA remake where revealed. There’s also no indication to whether the steam punk shmup is even a port at all and not an entirely new remake. More on this as we get it.

Shadow the Hedgehog Re-Released on Japanese PSN Store

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Those (un)lucky Japanese! Shadow the Hedgehog has been re-released on the Japanese PSN store. The game is a part of the PS2 Classics range and can be purchased for 1200 yen (about £8).

Shadow the Hedgehog is the notoriously ill-advised Shadow-centric action platformer which allows you to pick up and use enemy weapons like swords and most controversially, guns.

The PS2 version of the game suffers from a wildly fluctuating framerate that makes the game a chore to play. If you’re that desperate to play the game I would advise the superior Gamecube version.

Sonic 1 Being Re-Released in SEGA’s 3D Classic Range for 3DS

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

News has broken that SEGA will re-release Sonic the Hedgehog on the 3DS eShop with added 3D support to show depth in the backgrounds. This news follows the release of 3D Space Harrier and 3D Super Hang-On, all of which are still Japan exclusive.

The re-release will launch on May 15th to mark the 25th anniversary of the Mega Drive in Japan and it will be priced 600 yen. Additional features include the already mentioned 3D effect, all the bug fixes and added details from the later revisions of Sonic 1 (rippling water, scrolling clouds), the addition of the spin attack, a classic view mode which simulates a CRT monitor and an option to choose a Mega Drive model 1 or 2 sound balance.

This re-release is unrelated to Christian Whitehead and Stealth’s port of Sonic the Hedgehog which runs using Whitehead’s custom Retro Engine and supports a widescreen display.

Take a look at some screenshots below:

No word on whether this version will make it to the West at this time.
