After months of speculation, we're happy to reveal that the Sega AGES range has finally launched on Switch in the west.

Sega of America has today announced that the first two titles of Sega AGES, Sonic the Hedgehog and Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar (also known as Thunder Force IV), are now available digitally on the Nintendo eShop for $7.99 each. For those of you in Europe, don't worry - we've checked the eShop and they're ready and waiting for you too at £5.99 a pop.

We already knew that the two titles were launching today in Japan, but it was unclear when they would make it to western shores. With the recent announcement of Sega Mega Drive Classics - which is also on the way this winter - the Switch will soon be completely flooded with Sega goodness.

Of course, we also know that other classics like Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Out Run, Space Harrier, Columns II, Thunder Force AC, and Phantasy Star are all on the way, too, but we're still waiting on the release dates for these. Sega promises us that specific timing details are "coming soon".

Will you be giving the blue blur a whirl on your Switch today? Or perhaps reliving the epic battle against the Ohn Empire? Let us know in the comments below.
