SEGA has announced that SEGA Genesis Classics will be releasing this winter to the Nintendo Switch, both physically and digitally. The collection had a release earlier this year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and had existed on Steam as the SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis Classics Hub. The Switch release appears to be the same content, so a little over 50 Genesis games in a kid’s bedroom-style hub with various video settings.
Prior to this announcement, George and I mused on SEGA News Bits that SEGA held off on a Switch release so as not to compete with their SEGA AGES collection. However, it looks like Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 are the only games existing in both this and SEGA AGES. SEGA Genesis Classics offers a nice selection of games, but there are several odd choices including the lack of Ecco the Dolphin games and still no Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic & Knuckles. These games exist on the Steam version of the collection.Ad:
