With its official Japanese reveal last week - and confirmation that Alex Kidd and Ground Gain are joining the lineup - Sega has now officially confirmed Sega AGES (the revived retro collection) is headed to Nintendo Switch in the West sometime in the summer of 2018.

As we've previously reported, the first five games are Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Ground Gain, Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force IV and Phantasy Star. More titles are planned from the annals of Sega's vast gaming library, so with this unique virtual console headed to Switch in the coming months Switch is fast becoming the place to enjoy your favourite retro classics.

No word on an official price point yet, but expect more details to emerge as we approach a firm release date in the summer.

Will you be picking up Sega AGES when it arrives on Switch? We certainly will, but we want to hear your take on this revived retro series...
