Sega announced on Twitter that Sega Genesis Classics will be coming to Switch this winter. The compilation was previously released on PS4/Xbox One and was based on the semi-recent overhaul the collection got on Steam.
Here I thought the collection skipped Switch because Switch was getting the Sega Ages line. But apparently that ain't the case!
The compilation includes over 50 Genesis games. In terms of Sonic games it has 1, 2, 3D Blast, Spinball, and Mean Bean Machine.
And you know what that means? That means two different ports of Sonic 1 will be releasing on the same console in the same year! Hallelujah!
Along with the first game, Sonic 2 has also been added to the Sega Ages lineup for Nintendo Switch. A page for the game was added to the official Japanese website. From what I can eke out of Google Translate, features include:
- The ability to use the drop dash from Sonic Mania. This is also being included in Sonic 1.
- Time attack mode with online leaderboards.
- Ring keep mode, which allows you to hold on to some rings after being hit.
- Super Sonic mode, which starts Sonic out with 50 rings and all chaos emeralds. This is carried over from the 3DS release.
Other games announced for the lineup include:
- Space Harrier
- Columns II -- This hasn't really gotten a home release before and also never left Japan
- Thunder Force AC -- The arcade version of Thunder Force III, which received a number of adjustments
Sonic 1 is set to release on the 20th of this month.

Sonic Chaos is getting a 16-bit remaster from the ground up! Check out my thoughts.
Check out my thoughts on the Sonic 06 PC port that was at SAGE 2018 here!
Sonic Chaos is Back!
Not long ago Sonic HQ reported that Sonic Triple Trouble was getting a 16 bit remake. Now A+Start has announced a fan remake of the classic 8-bit SEGA Game Gear Sonic game, Sonic Chaos. Based on the current style of 2D classic Sonic games inspired by Sonic Mania, Sonic Chaos updates the 8 bit visuals of the original and adapts a play style more closely resembling the classic 16-bit games.
According to the team, the game has been in development for almost an entire year, of which 7 months was spent building a brand new engine from scratch. Yeap, you read that right; Sonic Chaos uses a brand new engine, called Crimson Engine, and with it the team has strived for classic Sonic gameplay accuracy.
