    Sega is bringing a line of retro games, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star and Thunder Force 4, to Nintendo Switch. The company announced the new initiative, which will be released under the Sega Ages label, during a Sega fan event in Japan today.

    More than fifteen titles will be released under the new Sega Ages lineup, though only three titles were confirmed at today’s event. Studio M2, which was responsible for previous Sega re-releases like the 3D Classics Collection for Nintendo 3DS and the Sega Ages series for PlayStation 2, is behind the Switch Sega Ages titles. M2’s involvement is good news for fans of classic Sega games; the developer’s work on restoring and emulating 8-bit and 16-bit games is unparalleled.

    The news is probably slightly less comforting to Switch owners hoping for a dedicated Virtual Console, as companies like Capcom, SNK and Sega are focusing on ad hoc vintage game re-releases.

    Sega Ages for Nintendo Switch will be released starting this summer. We’ve reached out to Sega for details on whether the lineup will be released in the West.

    I love my switch but I can't wrap my head around the mentality and focus of Nintendo. Just make the damn VC and so what they did with the Wii. Everything outside of the actual games and operation of the Switch is so poorly executed its a wonder it made it into the product as a feature. Make the virtual console available and a single place to get all of the games you want. While we are on the topic of fixes, redesign the entire multiplayer experience. Xbox and PS4 are a decade ahead in functionality over the Switch. I know the Switch is more than likely a single player experience but why even offer multiplayer when you half-*** it to begin with?
