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.

New SEGA Ages Titles by M2 Coming to Nintendo Switch, Including Sonic, Thunder Force & Phantasy Star

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.
