SEGA Genesis Classics announced for Nintendo Switch, releasing this winter

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.

    Disappointing news. Sega pandered, by putting it on bastard Nintendo hardware.

    Seeing as this collection has been on the X1, PS4 and PC for months, can we get the Sega Ages series on these platforms now as they won’t be in direct conflict with each other now.

    Yea, thought so.

    Hey Sega Bits Team, can you find out if this collection will include the Wonder Boy games that were on the PS4 / Xbone version? I have been seeing reports that it won’t.
