Throughout the decades, SEGA used the SEGA Ages moniker to re-release their classic titles, ranging from Out Run to Fighting Vipers. In their latest iteration of the project, SEGA Ages remastered games for the Nintendo Switch. In a recent interview with Game Watch, SEGA confirmed the project has come to an end, with Herzog Zwei being the final title.
Although the SEGA Ages project has come to an end with the release of Herzog Zwei, there are many games in the collection you can still buy and play. So please check them out if you don’t own them yet. However, this doesn’t mean that this is the end of SEGA’s plans to re-release past titles. I, along with SEGA’s own (Rieko) Kodama and (Kagasei) Shimomura, are currently hard at work on our next project. At this point in time, unfortunately, I can’t tell you whether or not M2 will be involved. If this makes you think, ‘Oh, then they’re definitely doing something with M2,’ I hope we can live up to your expectations.
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.Yosuke Okunari
