Sega have announced the Mega Drive Mini

Just a few hours ago, we reported on the news that Sega would be introducing a number of classic games from its library on the Nintendo Switch, under the brand name Sega Ages. M2 was the studio behind a wide range of "3D Classics" releases on the Nintendo 3DS, so it definitely has a lot of experience working on Sega's classic games. Thunder Force IV is a side-scrolling shoot 'em up for the Genesis, and was originally known as Lightning Force in North America (but hilariously misspelled as "Lightening Force"). The company announced the new initiative, which will be released under the Sega Ages label, during a Sega fan event in Japan today.

If Supreme got into video games, they'd probably put out tiny versions of classic consoles.

Sega Ages was a series of retro compilations released on the Sega Saturn back in mid-90s. Details are scant right now-no word on what games will be included or when exactly we can expect the Genesis Mini-but there's some slightly worrisome news.

It's on the Flyers now to not only be better, but be prepared for what Pittsburgh brings in response to this Game 1 spectacle. And the Penguins frustrate the Flyers so much time and time again that there are occasional bursts of physical nastiness.

Last year, AT Games, a business partner of Sega's and longtime manufacturer of Sega retro consoles announced its Sega Genesis Flashback.

Sega added that it would release a selection of 15 games across iOS and Android later this year.

An array of classic Sega titles are coming to the Nintendo Switch. The latter of which was a Sega arcade game first released in 1988 that's similar to classics like Jackal and Contra. We don't know, but if the answer is "the same in a cuter box", then Sega may find that the licence to print money popularised by Nintendo has expired. The overall range of games that the Mega Drive Mini offers are still unknown and is expected to be arriving in Japan this year.
