back in the early nineties, Nintendo and Sega were bitter rivals. After the massive success of the NES, Nintendo seemed unstoppable, but the Super Nintendo faced some fierce competition thanks to the plucky Sega Genesis. While those days are long behind us, players can flash back to those halcyon days thanks to Sega Genesis Classics, a compilation headed to Switch this winter!

Priced at $29.99 and arriving both physically and digitally, the upcoming compilation will include more than 50 games originally released on Genesis. The list is fairly impressive, encompassing some of Sega’s biggest franchises, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd, Vectorman and more. The games are expected to have some modern enhancements, such as save states and two-player Joy-Con support.

The compilation was released on multiple platforms earlier this year, but its existence is a bit puzzling considering the recent Sega Ages releases on eShop. Still, for players that may have missed out on Sega’s heyday, the compilation should offer an excellent way to revisit a number of classic titles. Sega Genesis Classics is expected to release later this year.
