In exciting news, Sega has confirmed the 3D driving game Out Run will be joining the Sega AGES line on the Japanese eShop before the end of the year. Unfortunately, there was no mention of the release date and price, or if the game will also make its way across to the west before the end of 2018

Based on the 1986 arcade classic originally developed by AM2, the Switch eShop version handled by M2 will once again modernise this release - with 60fps, widescreen support and gyro controls to recreate arcade steering. It will also include all of the iconic and catchy tunes such as Passing Breeze and Magical Sound Shower, as well as tune-up features and BGM from the 3D Classics version - released on the 3DS in 2015.

On a related note, Sega has finally locked in the release date for Phantasy Star on Switch in both North America and Europe. After a series of delays, the game will arrive locally on 13th December.

Take a look at some of the Sega AGES Out Run screenshots below:
