This could be huge news, as it would bring a number of long-lost classics to the Nintendo platform, with possibilities ranging from Fighters Megamix and Sega Rally Championship on the Saturn to Crazy Taxi 2 and Samba de Amigo from the Dreamcast line-up.
Additionally, the magazine article states that the Pokemon Company is looking to incorporate new gameplay mechanics in the Pokemon Nintendo Switch game and that it will arrive sometime in 2018 or even later.
Past titles will include Sonic the Hedgehog, Gain Ground, Thunder Force IV, Alex Kidd in Miracle World and Phantasy Star, with more being announced at a later date. The new titles will be released under the company's retro gaming label, Sega Ages.
M2, the developer behind the classic 3D conversions of Sega games for the 3DS, is behind the games, so you can expect perfection straight from the source code - along with other notable features. The good news for Sega is that nostalgia is still big these days, so fans are sure to be excited to hear that several classic Sega games will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch soon.
If this did happen, what Saturn and Dreamcast games would you like to see come to the Switch eShop? During the Sega Fes event in Japan, the publisher announced Sega Ages, a lineup of retro Sega games that are coming to North America, Europe, and Japan later this year.
Still, we're a bit surprised that there doesn't seem to be any plans in place to just release a compilation of classic Sega games for the Switch instead of these individual titles.
Gain Ground is the first arcade game that has been announced as part of Sega Ages, and Sega has said that it will not be the only one.
