SEGA has announced that SEGA AGES will release on Nintendo Switch, news that was shared at SEGA FES 2018 in Akihabara, Japan. That's right, the Kickstarter game that appeared on the Wii U is taking the same Switch route that the indie community has taken. It will be coming to Japan and the West this summer.

To commemorate the console's upcoming 30th anniversary, Sega took the opportunity to unveil its own miniature "classic edition" version of the legendary 16-bit Genesis (or, as it was called in the rest of the world, the Mega Drive). Since its debut in 1996 on the Sega Saturn, it has gone on to get four more entries in the main series, with the last arriving in 2005 for the PlayStation 2.

As for this entry, all we know is that it will be set in Taisho era 1929.
