This compilation will put over 50 retro games into the palm of your hands, and it comes with features that give fans new ways to play.

These features include a rewind function that allows players to replay segments, “mirror mode,” which flips games horizontally for a whole new experience, and game-specific challenges that allow you to dive deeper into your favorite titles.

While the list of games is not fully comprehensive (I am looking at you, Ecco the Dolphin), SEGA Genesis Classics for Switch is certain to provide hours of on-the-go, 16-bit fun.
