The SEGA AGES lineup has expanded on Nintendo Switch with the release of the real-time strategy classic Herzog Zwei. Released in 1989 to the Japanese Mega Drive, the game saw a release in the west the following year. Per SEGA, “In Herzog Zwei, each of the eight featured maps will require strategy and planning to beat your opponent as you issue commands and take over Outposts to best your foe. You will protect your base and accumulate units to expand and achieve ultimate victory. Command a special mech unit to leverage and order around combat units, and most importantly, make sure to keep a keen eye on resources like “Energy” so you can be combat-ready at all times!”
