This is very cool. Hope this lineup grows very big.
They decided after doing the last 3D Classics wave, it would be a waste to just leave it there.
Alex Kidd was chosen because of how popular he was on the Virtual Console in Europe...it's likely they will continue to use data like that for deciding future releases.
Gain Ground won't be the only arcade release. There will be more.
15 Titles is the start depending how well it goes they will do more.
There will be Saturn and Dreamcast titles in the future as well, if it goes well beyond the first 15 games.
Rieko Kodama is a producer on the new Sega Ages project...
Also I have to say I wasn’t totally correct looking into it, the 3D layering in their GigaDrive and ReMaster System titles are done by applying patches rather than altering the rom. They are writing custom Assembly code for it in each title though, it’s not automated by the emulator.
The interview said that if the titles are well received, they could extend the initiative to Saturn and Dreamcast titles.
It implies that the first 15 titles will only have Master System/Mega Drive/Arcade games.
Saturn games confirmed. Yes, so good.
At least the Switch is region free
for when none of the Saturn games get released in the west
Put this in the OP! Super huge info!
Man, now I REALLY hope this does well if it means Saturn & Dreamcast games. They probably wouldn't be huge ones like Skies of Arcadia or Panzer Dragoon Saga, but I could see them bundling both Panzer Dragoon & Zwei together, both Crazy Taxi games, etc.
How many Master System / Genesis ports do I have to buy for a Skies of Arcadia port? Why has Sega ignored this game for so long...
This reminds me that with the Sega Forever initiative they also teased DC and Saturn...
What they said was that if there is enough support for the Sega Ages line to keep going, in the (far) future they could do Saturn and Dreamcast games too. But then they also said that to achieve that, everyone should buy all 15+ Sega Ages titles on Switch. Lolololol.
This is Switch so I have zero doubt it'll sell amazingly. Looking forward to Dreamcast games, never played a single one. In for almost everything.
Revenge of Death Adder, Panzer Trilogy and Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram pls.
I'd want the SF3 games but I suppose we'd only get the first, I doubt sega are going to pay for any translations.
Guess I gotta buy some if I want Saturn and Dreamcast titles to happen.
Not that I wasn't planning on it in the first place.
Please campaign to get the Taxman's Sonic games on Switch, and while you're at it do the same for Shenmue HD
Wait wait wait...this involves Saturn and Dreamcast games?
Panzer Dragoon on Switch... sounds good to me.
Wait, does that mean we could get VIRTUA COP? OH GOD I NEED IT!
Basically a new version of Sega 3D Classics on TV with easy 2 player, more games and possibility of Saturn and Dreamcast games?
Look, I love shenmue games but I am starting to think Switch got the better deal here
Of course I'd rather everything be on everything but at least Sega are prolific again :)
Before they touch anything model 1, 2, or 3.
before they work on anything sega saturn
before any of that
THEY NEED TO PORT GOLDEN AXE REVENGE OF DEATH ADDER AND OUTRUNNERS
Neither game has ever had a real port. And Outrunners is amazing. It's way better than Outrun. If Sega won't put Outrun 2 anywhere to download, Outrunners is an incredible alternative (that doesn't even have the Ferrari licensing problem).
I finally get to play Saturn and Dreamcast games in the future on the Switch. Fuck yeah!!
Alright. I'm about as big a Sega fan as they come, but we need to start managing expectations here.
Who ever said we are getting the Phantasy Star remakes? Model 2 ports? Panzer Friggin Dragoon?
Honestly, there is nothing I want more than to be able to play my beloved Sega games in the modern era but you guys are getting way ahead of yourselves.
They talked about Thunder Force IV, that's amazing... Look. I just don't want to see you guys get hurt.
Able to play Sakura Wars 1 to 4 on Switch will move me to tears. Do it!
TFW Sega is getting a VC presence on Switch before Nintendo...
As a lifelong Nintendo fanboy, this could provide an opportunity to play some absolute gems I've missed out on over the years. Outside of a few Master System and Dreamcast titles, the Sega universe is largely a mystery to me. This is gonna be good!
