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.

Sonic Gets a Brief Reference in the Ready Player Two Novel

The book’s sequel, Ready Player Two, came out recently, and people on Twitter have spent much of the previous few days posting excerpts from it and absolutely tearing it apart.
