The incredible SEGA Ages range of classic titles for the Nintendo Switch on the eShop is officially coming to an end. The Switch series started in 2018 and has now encompassed nineteen classic SEGA properties including Sonic and Virtua Racing. Yosuke Okunari, the creative producer for SEGA, says that while the series is ending, he suggests that we may still see classic SEGA re-releases on the Nintendo Switch in the future.
“Although the SEGA Ages project has come to an end with the release of Herzog Zwei, there are many games in the collection you can still buy and play. So please check them out if you don’t own them yet. However, this doesn’t mean that this is the end of SEGA’s plans to re-release past titles. I, along with SEGA’s own (Rieko) Kodama and (Kagasei) Shimomura, are currently hard at work on our next project. At this point in time, unfortunately, I can’t tell you whether or not M2 will be involved. If this makes you think, ‘Oh, then they’re definitely doing something with M2,’ I hope we can live up to your expectations.
Considering SEGA Ages has ended, some may be wondering if we have plans to continue re-releasing past titles on Nintendo Switch – I want that to happen. I hope to bring something over that will really satisfy Switch players. So until then, we hope you’ll look forward to it.”
