SEGA AGES for Nintendo Switch

As we already know Sega Ages is  the recently announced M2 project which will bring Master System, Genesis and SEGA arcade ports to Nintendo Switch.

What I'm excited is this screenshot of Phantasy Star :



It has visible map on the screen while we play!!!
Reminded me of my favorite RPG, Sword of Vermilion.

The initial Ages games don't do much for me, as either I have them in various forms or just a general disinterest, though I am happy it is coming out for the Switch in the absence of Sega Forever.

May be they are giving Taxman's other project so he's kinda busy at the moment?
They're standalone for now, digital only.

Also these two now are available in Japanese eShop.

So Atlus USA is the one who's handling Sega Ages Phantasy Star's translation.

Quote



There are also things in this Switch version they didn’t fix on purpose, to make it as close as possible to the original version.
The English translation for example still uses abbreviations, even if Atlus USA has completely re-translated the game.
Hori-san jokes he’d really like to know how the item called “Perori Mate” in Japanese is translated in English. (It’s “Cola” in English).

SEGA confirms the end of SEGA Ages



Quote
"This doesn’t mean that this is the end of SEGA’s plans to re-release past titles.
I, along with SEGA’s own (Rieko) Kodama and (Kagasei) Shimomura, are currently hard at work on our next project.
At this point in time, unfortunately, I can’t tell you whether or not M2 will be involved."
(Yosuke Okunari)

SEGA on which games were most popular in the SEGA Ages series on Switch




Quote
In Japan, it’s definitely Virtua Racing. In addition to the sales numbers, I believe that everyone was able to see the technical capabilities of M2.
But in terms of the number of tweets, Fantasy Zone was actually more popular than Virtua Racing.
For overseas, it’s more diverse. However, in terms of sales, Sonic the Hedgehog was by far the biggest seller.
The second most popular title was OutRun – especially in Europe.
