Nintendo Switch Sega Ages collection: 15+ games, 5 named so far

With no Virtual Console for the Nintendo Switch in sight, publishers seem to be deciding that they aren't going to wait on Nintendo to launch one (if it ever does at all). On the heels of NIS America announcing that it will release a compilation of classic SNK games on the Switch, Sega is following suit. The company has announced that it will bring its classic titles to the Switch as part of a series called "Sega Ages."

Valkyria Chronicles for Nintendo Switch coming later this year

Valkyria Chronicles for Nintendo Switch coming later this year

Late last year, Sega promised Valkyria Chronicles 4 to arrive on modern consoles, including the Nintendo Switch, in summer 2018. It seems that the launch date has now slipped by a few months, much to the dismay of the franchise's fans. Perhaps to appease this crowd, Sega is throwing them something to make their wait worthwhile. It has just announced that the first Valkyria Chronicles will also be coming to the Nintendo Switch. The catch? You'll also have to wait for the Fall season.

Sega unveils Mega Drive Mini console in Japan

Almost everyone knows how popular Nintendo's NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition have been over the last two years, with the miniature, pre-loaded consoles selling out almost as soon as they hit shelves. It seems Sega has finally wised up and decided to get in on the trend, as the Japanese game company has unveiled the "Mega Drive Mini," a tiny version of its iconic 16-bit console — known as the Genesis in the US.

Sega Genesis Collection announced, snubs Switch

Sega Genesis Collection announced, snubs Switch

Sega is a pretty big fan of re-releasing its classic games, as it seems every console since Sega left the hardware business has had at least one collection of Genesis titles. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will be no different in that regard, with today's announcement of the Sega Genesis Collection for both. As you'd expect, the compilation offers a bunch of noteworthy Sega Genesis games in one package, giving you a chance to either revisit the past or look into it for the first time, assuming you grew up in an era after the Sega Genesis was popular.

Yakuza 6 PS4 demo contained the full game

Yakuza 6 PS4 demo contained the full game

Game demos are a touchy subject in the industry. While trialware is generally frowned upon, locked copies bring their set of problems as Sega just recently found out the hard way. Less than a day after putting out the PS4 demo for the upcoming Yakuza 6: The Song of Life game, the publisher yanked it out abruptly. The reason? The North American version of demo apparently contained the full game and some eager players were able to actually able to bypass the demo’s restrictions.

SEGA and Retro-Bit’s mysterious deal gives us retro console palpitations

SEGA and Retro-Bit’s mysterious deal gives us retro console palpitations

Thanks to platforms like Steam, Xbox Live, PSN, and the Nintendo eShop, we've been enjoying something of a retro revival in recent years. Old games that may have otherwise been forgotten have been getting a new life on these platforms, and new games like Sonic Mania look to recapture some of the magic of those classic titles. That's great on its own, but now Sega and Retro-Bit want to take that one step further.

This Sonic the Hedgehog VR mod will probably make you sick

This Sonic the Hedgehog VR mod will probably make you sick

While virtual reality has opened the door to a large number of unique, creative gaming experiences, there's often still a desire to see existing iconic franchises adapted to the new technology. One that you wouldn't expect to work is the classic Sonic the Hedgehog, not only because the original games were 2D platformers, but also because they emphasize going really, really fast — a feeling that frequently doesn't translate well to VR. That hasn't stopped one indie VR developer from giving it a try, however.

After Sonic Mania, Sega needs to make 2D Sonic games a priority

After Sonic Mania, Sega needs to make 2D Sonic games a priority

Like many people, I was a bit apprehensive when Sega first revealed Sonic Mania. I was just as excited for a 2D Sonic the Hedgehog title as the next guy, but Sega's talent for screwing up Sonic games is not an easy thing to forget. Now that it's been here for around two weeks - except for the PC version, which launches today - it's clear that I was wrong to be worried. Sonic Mania is a brilliant game, and it shows that Sega needs to commit to regular 2D Sonic releases once and for all.
