With no Virtual Console for the Nintendo Switch in sight, publishers seem to be deciding that they aren't going to wait on Nintendo to launch one (if it ever does at all). The new titles will be released under the company's retro gaming label, Sega Ages. The company previously stated that over 15 games are now planned.

The first batch of Sega Ages titles will be available this summer and consists of five classic games: the Master System versions of Phantasy Star and Alex Kidd in Miracle World; the Genesis versions of Sonic the Hedgehog and Thunder Force IV; and the arcade version of Gain Ground. The new Switch Sega Ages games will be the work of retro masters M2 (who also handled the original Sega Saturn releases). Meanwhile, Sonic the Hegdehog, Gain Ground, and Thunder Force IV are SEGA Genesis titles; Sonic the Hedgehog and Gain Ground came out in 1991, while Thunder Force IV hit store shelves in 1992.

PBT Extra Preview: Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Houston Rockets

Sega Ages series producer Kagasei Shimomura is quoted as saying that he wants to expand the official lineup past the now confirmed retro games being worked on.

Sega has stated that M2 will be handling porting duties, which is an exciting thing to hear. "Translating the Pokemon featured text we get this in English: "ā€¸After a lifetime associated with portable consoles, the canonical pokemon will take the leap to a table with its eighth generation. game freak and the pokemon company are rethinking the saga to surprise with new mechanics, either in 2018 or later". More details are likely coming around the bend soon, as Sega will want to keep excitement high by consistently revealing the other titles that will be re-released under the Sega Ages banner.
