I bought Thunder Force IV ( having never played it before ), and my God. Is It supposed to be this fast and difficult? I barely have time to register an enemy, let alone dodge it! The game looks gorgeous though.

Is this the line that has the first Phantasy Star?

I'd buy that one.

Me too. I'm not getting Sonic since I'll be getting the Genesis Collection. But I'll be getting Phantasy Star 1 from the Sega Ages line since the collection only has Phantasy 2-4 on it. Hopefully they decide to do Sonic 3 & Knuckles since the collection doesn't have them either.

@ArtheXavier Yeah it's super fast. I never liked it much...preferred the TG-16 shmups like Gate of Thunder and Lords of Thunder, but I bought it for giggles. It's pretty, but the music isn't doing anything for me, and the level and enemy design can be super annoying. Also it takes me FOREVER to kill bosses.

Skies of Arcadia
Panzer Dragoon Saga
Guardian Heroes

Id be really happy if any of those were eventually ported.

For the moment, I'm just interested in Phantasy Star.

@ArtheXavier Turn off “Reduce Processing Delay” in the settings if you haven’t already. It brings back the slowdown from the original release which makes it a bit easier.

Just amazing news! I bought the Mega 32X specifically for Virtua Racing.

I wonder what else will be announced? Any idea if this was the winner of the poll they done? Ideally it'll have come 5th and they still have 4 more to announce haha.

@OorWullie The winner was...JET SET RADIO! closely followed by Shenmue 1 + 2 (weird Sega skipped the Switch I guess the arcade games clash, so they staggered the release) and (ahem) Panzer Dragoon Saga!

@Gerald It looks it...although I don't remember the car being blue. I thought it was red. So there must be some M2 bells and whistles going on somewhere in the build

@GrailUK Going by what I've just read there's a chance we may see all of those.

"Sega joked that all the Jet Set Radio fans in the world must have voted, because it was by far the most popular pick. However, whether it is possible is still in the works. According to Naoki Horii from M2, while they have been doing their best to get Dreamcast games working, games from beyond that generation is task that they’ll need to work on from now on.

As for Shenmue I & II, there were a lot of requests to bring the games to Nintendo Switch as well. However, the recent rereleases were handled by Sega of Europe and not Japan, so when they meet with Sega of Europe next week, they will discuss the matter."

@Gerald Looks like it's going to be the arcade version emulated from the ground up. They done that with Outrun 3DS,added wide-screen and doubled the framerate. I think we can expect they'll do the same with Virtua Racing.

"While the game has been ported to several different consoles, such as the Sega 32X and Sega Saturn, this marks the first faithful arcade version port in the history of the game. The game’s emulation is being done from the ground up without relying on work from the 3DS Sega releases. More info will be revealed later."

Actually, VR already has wide-screen and was in fact the very first arcade wide-screen monitor.

@OorWullie @GrailUK I also had this on the 32X, loved the Stock Car on that. I also loved the 4th Track (not the desert one). Would be great if M2 added these as a bonus.
I only played the Saturn version once, I thought that was awful.
The future is bright for Sega Ages.

I see several posts of yours complaining about the Genesis Collection.

If you haven't heard, it's coming to Switch now, digitally and physically.

If they're porting Arcade games as part of the Ages series then I'd like to see the original Super Monkey Ball, unless they want to bring the Gamecube games to Switch instead

@OorWullie
So apparently Sega Europe thinks Switch fans don't like Shenmue. But you're saying Sega Japan is going to talk to them? Thank freaking goodness. These divisions need to wake up. Europe isnt the center of the universe. Just because the tiny British Isle is all PS centric doesn't mean the rest of the world is like that

@JaxonH Yep, I hope something comes of this. It would be incredible to have them both on Switch. I can still vividly remember my time with the original Shenmue. It was one of those rare moments in gaming where I was genuinely blown away by what I was seeing and playing. I can count on one hand the amount of times a game has gave me this kind of feeling.

Sonic the Hedgehog
Mario 64
Ocarina of Time
Soul Calibur
Shenmue 1

Only Mario Galaxy and Breath of the Wild have come close to really wowing me since. The more realistic graphics and gameplay becomes the less I'm impressed for some reason. Maybe it's just age.

Anyway, my point. Sega Europe should know there must be many more gamers like me who moved to Nintendo after the Dreamcast and have fond memories of Shenmue. I'm sure it will sell pretty well if it ever does come to Switch. It seems the folk at the top of Sega don't really have much understanding of their past and how much their old games mean to many people. The poor quality of the Megadrive Mini backs this up.

That 32X version was brilliant. I know it was a graphic step down (though impressive for late ‘94) but it got the feel of the Arcade just right IMO.

@JaxonH I'm a-ok with M2 working their way through that list lol. Sure there are some games I think are missing, but it's not like I don't want the ones that are there lmao.

I hear they might be parting ways with AtGames for their mini console. And I say good riddance, what took ya so long?

Everyone else is scrooge mcduckin it with their quality mini consoles. Meanwhile it's all crickets with the mini Genesis. Because nobody wants a crap product. Make a quality mini Genesis and people will be all over it.
