SHENMUE 1 AND 2 REMASTERED! SEGA MEGADRIVE Announced At SEGA FES 2018!

Sega Ages Bringing Classics To Switch Beginning In Summer 2018

Sega Ages Bringing Classics To Switch Beginning In Summer 2018

Meant as the SEGA version of Nintendo's NES and SNES Classic, the SEGA MegaDrive Mini will go on sale this year, though there wasn't any more details as to what games will be on the console other than possibly a way of asking the audience what they want.

When Sega announced that it would make a major disclosure at its event, Sega Fes 2018, we did not expect it to really take the industry by surprise with far-reaching information. We've seen several major news drops this evening from that, including Shenmue I and II getting a release bundle on modern consoles.

Those who have enjoyed the SEGA Ages releases over the years either on PS2 or the most recent 3DS entries, they certainly know that M2 never ceases to disappoint. Currently, only three games have been announced: Phantasy Star, Thunder Force IV, and Sonic the Hedgehog.

Lastly, SEGA revealed that a new entry in the Sakura Taisen (known as Sakura Wars in the West) series is in the works.

We don't know how much it will cost, which countries it will be sold in, or which games will be included, but on that last point Sega seems to be taking suggestions from gamers. Hopefully, we'll hear more soon!

Hardware company AtGames appear to be handling the manufacturing side of things on the new console, responding to fan queries on social media and noting that the new official version will be "powered by the latest AtGames technology".
