While The Big N continues to drag its feet on any sort of Switch Virtual Console, Sega has revealed it will be reviving the Sega Ages series on the system.

This new release of Sega Ages promises that several of the titles in it will be making their way west for the first time, with a Summer 2018 release date given for when we can expect the first batch of games.

In addition to delivering the top-notch emulation M2 is known for, the new Sega Ages re-releases will include new content and features.

At the end of the panel, Shimomura said, "I believe that the Nintendo Switch hardware characteristics mesh very well with classic games".

Only Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force IV and Phantasy Star were confirmed to start, but later in the day Alex Kidd and arcade title Gain Ground were confirmed as well. The Mega Drive has seen a miniature version released in the past, although it wasn't manufactured by Sega and suffered from multiple emulation issues, so hopefully this one will fare a lot better.

Sega Ages was a series of retro compilations released on the Sega Saturn back in mid-90s.

All we have to go with when it comes to theSega Ages project that was just recently announced for Switch is an "over 15 games" teaser, but we now have a little more information as to what that lineup actually entails. Now, over 20 years later, the series aims do the same on Nintendo Switch this Summer, adding ports of Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, and arcade games to the platform's library.
