The Nintendo Switch is turning into quite the little retro machine. Bandai Namco Musuem was one of the first Classic Collections of retro titles. Hamster have been cranking out ACA Neo Geo games non-stop since the release of the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo themselves launched it’s own collection of NES titles as part of the new Switch Online Service. SEGA is bringing it’s own line of SEGA AGES to the console but they are not done yet. SEGA has also announced that SEGA Genesis Classics will also see physical and digital release on the Nintendo Switch this Winter.
With over 50 different titles to choose from, SEGA Genesis Classics will give Switch owners the chance to play some of SEGA’s most iconic games from the third console in SEGA’s reign as a hardware developer. Released earlier this year on the PS4 and Xbox One, SEGA Genesis Classics is now coming to the Nintendo Switch, along with some extra features, exclusive to the console.
