Famitsu recently interviewed members of the SEGA Ages team to talk to them about the reception of the classic video games for the Nintendo Switch system. The team say they were unexpectedly surprised by the reception that the games have received, especially in Europe.
“The excitement of everyone abroad was higher than expected.” In particular, Sega Ages Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega Ages Out Run, and Sega Ages Alex Kidd in Miracle World were cited as being especially popular in Europe. Kodama went on to confirm this, saying people in western countries seemed to really appreciate them. Again, she noted, “… Out Run and Alex Kidd in Miracle World are so popular in Europe! I was surprised by that.Siliconera
However, it wasn’t all good news from the team, who told Famitsu that sales in Japan havent been as good as the company had anticipated. In fact, the team says that sales were half those of the Nintendo 3DS Sega 3D Classics line of games.
