Sega is a company that has often treated its venerated and storied past with shocking, cavalier casualness—but even when it does attempt to tap into nostalgia, it mostly does so by releasing, and re-releasing, Genesis/Mega Drive games from its 16-bit heyday. In a way, it makes sense—most people know Sega for that, after all. But at this point, Genesis games have been released on practically every platform known to mankind, and other, equally great (if not better) Sega games released on platforms like Saturn and Dreamcast have languished in obscurity.
However, with Sega AGES, a line of classic games being re-released for the Nintendo Switch, that might change. While, for now, the collection will focus on Genesis games (again), it might expand to include Saturn and Dreamcast games in the feature. Speaking about the future of the initiative, the senior director of the project said (translation via ResetEra) that it could be expanded to include Saturn and Dreamcast games in the future. Not only that, but Sega’s Sam Mullen from the localization team chipped in on ResetEra to suggest that this might in fact happen—but he did note that fans should express their interest in that happening on social media like Twitter.
Hoopefully, it does happen. Some of Sega’s best games ever made were for Saturn and Dreamcast (including many that, sadly, barely or never got any release in the west). I’d love for the chance to be able to play them on the Switch.
