A new console generation, a new Sega compilation. That seems to be the mantra Sega has adopted with its back catalog. Unlike Nintendo’s drip-feed approach to Virtual Console (RIP) or Sony’s refusal to even allow for backward compatibility, Sega has ensured its biggest retro games are available on every platform imaginable.
For the Nintendo Switch, not only will the recently released Sega Genesis Classics compilation be available, but individual game releases are coming to the eShop. Branded the SEGA AGES collection, these ports of the classics act like compendiums of the different versions each title saw. Arcade ports, Genesis, and even Mega Drive (international) versions are all collected into one download with a few bonus features thrown in for good measure.
The first two of these releases, Sonic the Hedgehog and Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar, show promise for what could be coming in the future. The only real downside is the price tag, which will turn many a player off.
