When Sega announced that it would make a major disclosure at its event, Sega Fes 2018, we did not expect it to really take the industry by surprise with far-reaching information.

As a one-time Genesis kid whose nostalgic sweet spot is a Sega Genesis, I feel qualified to say that the Genesis deserves better from its owner. In competitive terms, Sega Mega Drive had difficulties in Japan due to the popularity that Nintendo had in that country thanks to the success of the Famicom and later with the Super Famicom, however, in America it was a commercially successful console, just like in Europe.

Yes, you have read the title correctly, SEGA has recently announced that it will be bringing more than 15 of their, classic SEGA Ages titles on Nintendo Switch. Sega famously exited the hardware business after the failure of the Sega Dreamcast in 2001. If there's a classic title you want to see return, speak up.

Sega has fulfilled the dreams of nostalgic gamers across the globe in its grand unveiling of the Sega Mega Drive Mini at this year's Sega festival. For starters, it's smaller than the Flashback console, missing a full-sized cartridge post and adding the console's original volume slider.

So as soon as we hear any more news regarding either this partnership or those upcoming titles, we will let you guys know.

Additionally, Sega announced that Shenmue I and II would be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with options between retro and modern control schemes.
