Replay videos and inputs on the ranking board is one of the best additions I’ve seen in any game. That in itself almost makes it worth it. Almost.

In a recent Famitsu interview, SEGA’s Naoki Horii said that the company is close to successfully making Dreamcast titles work on Nintendo Switch through emulation. But there’s still one question left unanswered.

Horii said there are two ways to go about making SEGA Ages Dreamcast titles on Nintendo Switch, either through emulation or remaking the game as they still have its source code. Both approaches are very different, but it seems the company is leaning towards using emulation for most of its Dreamcast titles, while picking the remake option for the rest.

Looks like Sega are going to make some crrraaaazzzy money on the Switch.

The Western release of Phantasy Star is November 15th. The Japanese eShop version does contain the English version though.

SEGA AGES Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Might Be The Best Version We've Ever Had

An improved version of Virtua Racing is also expected

SEGA and M2 are doing a great job of bringing classic Mega Drive games to the Switch with the SEGA AGES series of games. As with the 3DS 3D Classics range, these aren't just lazy efforts. M2 really get into the original games source code so you know you are getting a port worthy of your time.

In a recent interview with M2’s CEO Naoki Horii, he revealed that they are pulling out all the stops for the SEGA AGES port of Sonic The Hedgehog 2. Digging into the source code they have found that this will be a challenge; after all, Yuji Naka was a coding genius and his techniques take some head-scratching to get your head around.

Horii-san also teased that the SEGA Ages port of Sonic 2 might include some features which Naka-san originally wanted to do in the game, but could not manage because of the Mega Drive's limitations. What this could be is a mystery, but we're excited to see how the SEGA Ages port turns out.

In the interview, it was also mentioned that the upcoming Virtua Racing port would benefit from improvements over the arcade original. Horii-san teased that the game will feature something "that’ll allow everyone to play Virtua Racing together" and “play Sega games on Switch in a good environment”, which suggest to us that the game will feature online play.

Hooray.. more megadrive games!

GET TO THE MONEY!!! I mean Dreamcast
Get to the Dreamcast!!!

If people want old sonic games they’ll get those shitty plug and play consoles.
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.
