Herzog Zwei is the Next Game in the SEGA Ages Line-Up for Switch, New Details Shared

Sunday, June 28th, 2020

The next SEGA Ages game for the Switch has been confirmed as Herzog Zwei. This title originally released on the Mega Drive back in December 1989 and is often regarded as one of the first RTS titles.

Developed by Technosoft of Thunder Force fame, this new port by M2 features a brand new practice mode which offers an extensive tutorial for new players. Alongside the game’s Original mode is a SEGA Ages mode which adds information panels and a mini map to help manage your craft and weaponry. We also have a Helper mode which gives you more resources and health for an easier gameplay option. The game will also support online multiplayer between 2 players, but the player you’ll face off against is chosen at random with no support for friends. The usual SEGA Ages settings and features like screen resizing, wallpapers and replays are also supported.

SEGA Ages: Herzog Zwei is due to release on the Switch eShop “soon” and will be priced at 999 yen for Japan. There is currently no word on a release date or pricing for the Western versions.

Fantasy Zone is the Next SEGA AGES Title for Japan, Launching ‘Soon’

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

The next game to join the SEGA AGES lineup for Nintendo Switch will be the arcade shoot-em-up Fantasy Zone.

As expected, this release of the game will include the extra content introduced in the 3D Classics release of the game, such as Upa-Upa Mode (which lets you switch between power-ups freely, charging you for ammo rather than for each weapon), a ‘Coin Stock’ that accumulates over your playtime (so you can jump into the game with a loaded inventory of coins if you want), and bosses from the Master System version implemented as extra bosses in the arcade version. As you play and accumulate more coins, you’ll also unlock more options, such as increased power-up ammo, and the ability to change how many coins enemies drop when defeated.

There’ll also now be a time attack feature that gives you infinite lives, HD rumble support, the standard replay and ranking functions of the other AGES releases, and a massively overhauled HUD. The HUD is notable, as it’s actually very in-line with M2’s separate ShotTriggers line of shmup ports.

There’s no solid date on Fantasy Zone’s Switch release right now, but we’d expect it to show up within the next two weeks. Over here, it’ll probably launch alongside the recently released Shinobi port.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 on Steam Upgraded to Complete Edition, Existing Owners Receive All DLC For Free

Friday, November 8th, 2019

Owners of Valkyria Chronicles 4 on Steam are in for a treat, as the game has now been rebranded to the Complete Edition – even for those who already bought it!

The Complete Edition replaces the listing for the original release, and comes in at £39.99 – except now, you also get all of the DLC included in that price. And if that wasn’t enough, SEGA’s gone back and applied this retroactively to anyone who already purchased the game! So picked up Valkyria Chronicles 4 at launch and wish you’d waited for the Complete Edition? No need – you get all of the DLC for free!

It’s pretty generous to say the least, and a welcome move from SEGA. We can’t remember the last time ‘Game of the Year’ or ‘Complete Edition’ goodies got retroactively given to existing customers, so it’s a pleasant surprise.

The next SEGA Ages title coming to the Japanese Nintendo Switch eShop is SEGA Ages: Shinobi and it will launch on the 31st of October 2019.

This new port of the game by M2 features a whole raft of enhancements that include:

– a dedicated button for melee attacks (these were previously context sensitive)
– a stage select option
– new difficulty options
– rewind functionality
– replay functionality
– online leaderboards
– support for HD rumble
– an arcade cabinet mode that simulates the background noise of a bustling arcade
– a brand new ‘Ages Mode’ which acts as an easier difficulty where you play as Joe Musashi in his white ninja garb with permanent buffs and the ability to take 2 hits to kill

Check out some screenshots below which showcase this new port in action. You can see the famous Marilyn Monroe images have been replaced with an image of the wolf transformation from Altered Beast – a nice little touch:
