The more of these games, the better. I like the new Switch games, but there is always something special about the old games I was playing. They seem to have that special touch and for sure it's mainly nostalgia, but oh well  :afroman:

I'm at the same boat.  :-D
May be because I'm getting old but I rarely finish modern games like Yakuza or SMT series due to how ten of hours needed to complete them.
These old games are usually short but they're fun to start over again. Very replayable

SEGA delisting Sonic 1, 2, 3 & Knuckles and CD from digital storefronts on May 20th
(SEGA AGES version of Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and 2 will still remain though)



Quote
This will include Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD.
There are a couple of exceptions – Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and 2 will remain available via SEGA AGES on the Nintendo Switch and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will still be playable via Sega Genesis on Nintendo Switch Online +.
The biggest loss is ....

“In Memory of Rieko Kodama” – Remembering the Legendary SEGA Designer, Director and Producer
The SEGA AGES series was Kodama’s last project at SEGA.



Quote
In a bittersweet moment, Kodama ended her interview with Famitsu remarking “This might upset some people, but I work on each as though it were the last thing I did with my life”.
Kodama continued, saying “If I didn’t actually do it that way, I wouldn’t be able to make something as full of heart as these. And I really have worked on all of them as though they were my last project.”

Sega Ages: Shinobi is now 50% off in the Nintendo eShop!
Sale ends on December 05, 2022.








Quote
Shinobi. It's Japanese for stealth, the perfect description of a Master Ninja.
And that's exactly what you are!
Armed with throwing stars and finely-honed battle skills, you must defeat the Ring of Five.
Fight your way past mercenaries and karate thugs.
Take out the meanest martial artists and rescue hostages.
But these dangers pale in comparison to your ultimate challenge: A fight to the death against five evil Ninja Assassins whose mastery of the deadly ancient arts may well surpass your own!

Actually they already did that with Sonic Origins. Sonic Origins are Taxman's versions.
