More news has dropped regarding to the SEGA AGES series, this time a lot of announced titles coming to the series sometime in the future. These titles are Puzzle & Action Ichidant-R, Shinobi, G-loc Air Battle, Fantasy Zone, Herzog Zwei, and Wonder Boy in Monster Land. Each title will be based on their original arcade version, with the exception being Herzog Zwei instead being based on the Mega Drive version. No other information such as pricing, release date, or any other additional features have been revealed.
This announcement notably means that G-loc Air Battle will have the original arcade version ported to a home console for the first time, while this will be the first time SEGA used the Herzog IP after the acquirement of Technosoft’s library. What is your thoughts on these titles coming to the SEGA AGES series?

I know this is supposed to be good news for the company on terms of business, but in terms of the consumer, especially if you are a fan, this kind of news is a bit enraging, because Sega consigning the entire Sega Ages platform to a Nintendo hardware platform exclusively when they’re are perfectly good if not better other store platforms to put the Sega Ages virtual console on, like Xbox Live, Steam, Epic, and even PSN.
I think it’s a great series and I love the high quality work that M2 does… it’s just disappointing that it’s all relegated to the Switch. Bring it to PC and the other consoles, too.
I’m excited for Herzog Zwei and maybe G-LOC, but that’s about it. Where are the Saturn and Dreamcast games they’ve been teasing? Where are the 3D Arcade games like Virtua Racing?
