Sega Ages has come to an end. The platform, through which Sega ported a handful of its oldest games onto the Switch, wraps up its run with its nineteenth game, Herzog Zwei, in Japan on the 27. The news comes from a recent interview between Sega’s Yosuke Okunari and Japanese outlet Game Watch. Thankfully, however, this does not necessarily mean that we’re done seeing classic Sega titles make it to Switch, especially if Okunari has anything to say about it. Check out what he had to say below, as translated by Oni_Dino.
Considering SEGA Ages has ended, some may be wondering if we have plans to continue re-releasing past titles on Nintendo Switch – I want that to happen. I hope to bring something over that will really satisfy Switch players. So until then, we hope you’ll look forward to it.
At this point, we don’t know what future projects will look like, or if Sega Ages’ emulation experts over at M2 will be involved with any other ports. At this stage, all we can really do is hope that Sega’s still got some plans up their sleeve to get their classics out there.
Hopefully, the end of Sega Ages is just a procedural hiccup that does not stop Sega from porting its best work to Switch – especially stuff from the Dreamcast and onwards. For example, I really need Super Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball 2 to hurry up and roll onto Switch and kickstart the series anew. What about you? What Sega titles are you still holding out for on Switch?
