SEGA AGES Puyo Puyo and Gain Ground hit Nintendo Switch February 2019

SEGA Ages line of classic re-releases is going to be working overtime in 2019 since they are releasing both SEGA Ages Puyo Puyo and SEGA Ages Gain Ground on Nintendo Switch next month. We even got new information on extra content in these games:

“Gain Ground will see the addition of an All-Member Mode that unlocks all 20 characters, along with an Easy Mode if things are a little too difficult or you simply want to enjoy the game casually.

Meanwhile, the Sega Ages release of Puyo Puyo will allow you to try your hand against other players outside your home with Online Play while testing your skills on the leaderboards with the new Ranking System! Note that Nintendo Switch Online is required for online play.”

If you can’t get enough Puyo Puyo action, there will also be a SEGA Ages version of Puyo Puyo Tsu on Nintendo Switch later this year.

Review: SEGA Genesis Classics Pack 1

I know what you are saying, another compilation of Genesis games, splattering the word classic to get me thinking about great games that powered my Genesis throughout the 16-bit wars.

After releasing a ton of stand alone titles on other digital services and disc based releases, SEGA tries to bring Genesis games to Steam. This is not the first time SEGA has brought Genesis games to PC.

SEGA Mega Drive Digital Download – Series 1

Here is a trailer showing off the first batch of direct to drive downloadable Mega Drive (Genesis) titles for PC.

Games shown include Golden Axe, Altered Beast, Ecco, Gain Ground, Vectorman, CrackDown, Space Harrier 2 and my personal favourites Shinobi 3 and Comix Zone.

Each classic SEGA titles will be available from £1.99/€2.49/ AUS$3.49 which is dirt cheap and a real bargain even if you own them already.
