SEGA Mega Drive Classics is finally heading to the Switch in December

When SEGA announced the Sega Mega Drive Classics for the PS4 and Xbox One most gamers were a little confused that it was heading to those consoles, without even a whisper of a Switch release. Nintendo’s console is easily the best platform to play it on as it lends itself well to quick bursts of gaming and, let’s be honest here, those old 16-Bit games look so much better on a portable screen than on your 85″ OLED 4K telly.

Sega Mega Drive Classics will land on the Switch on 7 December and will come loaded with the following Mega Drive titles:

  • Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
  • Alien Soldier
  • Alien Storm
  • Altered Beast
  • Beyond Oasis
  • Bio-Hazard Battle
  • Bonanza Bros.
  • Columns
  • Columns III: Revenge of Columns
  • Comix Zone
  • Crack Down
  • Decap Attack
  • Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  • Dynamite Headdy
  • ESWAT: City Under Siege
  • Fatal Labyrinth
  • Flicky
  • Gain Ground
  • Galaxy Force II
  • Golden Axe
  • Golden Axe II
  • Golden Axe III
  • Gunstar Heroes
  • Kid Chameleon
  • Landstalker
  • Light Crusader
  • Phantasy Star II
  • Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom
  • Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millenium
  • Ristar
  • Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi
  • Shining in the Darkness
  • Shining Force
  • Shining Force II
  • Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Sonic 3D Blast
  • Sonic Spinball
  • Space Harrier II
  • Streets of Rage
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Streets of Rage 3
  • Super Thunder Blade
  • Sword of Vermilion
  • The Revenge of Shinobi
  • ToeJam & Earl
  • ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron
  • Vectorman
  • VectorMan 2
  • Virtua Fighter 2

Quite the list of games and it’ll come with the various features that made it so popular on the other console by including rewind mode, mirror mode and challenges. We’re actually quite happy SEGA decided to do this, as we were thinking that they were going to release all these games under the SEGA Ages tag with a bumped up cost. Thankfully it’s not the case and is one bundle you should own (even if Sonic The Hedgehog 3 is nowhere to be seen).

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
