Nintendo Switch Getting Classic Sega Games This Summer

Nintendo Switch Getting Classic Sega Games This Summer

Now, decades after Nintendo essentially eliminated the Sega Genesis console, Sega is having to rely on its former competitor to keep its games in distribution.

This could be huge news, as it would bring a number of long-lost classics to the Nintendo platform, with possibilities ranging from Fighters Megamix and Sega Rally Championship on the Saturn to Crazy Taxi 2 and Samba de Amigo from the Dreamcast line-up.

An array of classic Sega titles are coming to the Nintendo Switch. These titles are only the start, and SEGA is even promising that some future SEGA Ages games will be ones that never officially released in the west.

At this point, there's no word yet on prices or release dates, but Sega did say that those five titles won't be the only classic games going to the Nintendo Switch.

Still, we're interested in seeing which classic Sega games come to Switch via the Sega Ages brand. M2 was the studio behind a wide range of "3D Classics" releases on the Nintendo 3DS, so it definitely has a lot of experience working on Sega's classic games.

There's also some exciting news for fans of the Sega Dreamcast and Saturn consoles too. The only downside is that the games aren't fully remastered titles, so some fans might be a bit disappointed with the graphics. The news comes to us from Japanese news website Game Watch.

This suggests that this will be how SEGA decide on other ports at this time. As you would expect from the retro geniuses at M2, these games will stay true to their original forms while incorporating new features that bring a refreshing twist to these classic titles' gameplay. The console looks just like a mini Sega Genesis console, although it doesn't hold cartridges like the original model did.
