Sega Genesis Classics Heading to Nintendo Switch This Winter

A bevy of classic SEGA games is coming to the Nintendo Switch this winter.

Nintendo Switch owners are set to get a big dose of classic Sega gaming later this year! The Sega Genesis Classics game collection that made its way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One earlier this year is making the jump to Nintendo this winter.

Sega Genesis Classics contains 50 games from Sega’s classic console, packing classic titles spanning pretty much every genre that was relevant at the time.

RPGs like Shining Force and Phantasy Star 2, platformers such as Vectorman and Sonic 2, and oddball titles like ToeJam & Earl and Landstalker are present in this collection — and that’s only a fraction of the list.

You can check out the full list of games over on the official Sega Genesis Classics website, but retro fans on the Nintendo Switch have a little more to look forward to than just the games with this release.

Online multiplayer, achievements, local co-op, mirror modes, save states, and more will be available in this collection.

This is the largest all-in-one Sega game collection yet, but it is missing one thing: Sonic & Knuckles. That’s a small price to pay for 50 other classic games to whittle the hours away on in one purchase.
