Great news, Sega lovers! Sega Ages is not the only retro goodness Sega will be giving us. If you were like me and was sadly disappointed by the lack of a Sega Genesis Classics announcement for Switch when it was announced for the Xbox One and PS4 back in April then you will be happy to hear that Sega has announced today that the Switch will indeed be receiving the game!
Get ready for some retro gaming on the go! SEGA Genesis Classics is coming to Nintendo Switch, both physically and digitally this winter! pic.twitter.com/x6TyqLi0bd

When the title released in May for the other systems there were some issues with the emulation so I’m remaining optimistic that they can sort that out prior to the game launching this Winter but regardless, that many games for only $29.99 is outstanding. The collection does lack a few notable titles without any good reason such as Ecco the Dolphin, Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles (WHY???!!!) but there are plenty of other gems here to make up for that!
As stated earlier, it doesn’t have a definitive release date but will be coming this “Winter”. You can actually preorder the title by heading over to Amazon (hey, they don’t charge till it ships!….in case you didn’t know).
Do you guys plan on picking this up? Have you already purchased it on another console? Let us know in the comments and be sure to stop by our Community forums!
