Sega Mega Drive Classics is set to launch on Nintendo Switch on 6th December, it has been confirmed. The game will be available in both physical and digital formats.

If you missed the news last month, Sega is bringing its 50-title compilation release over to Switch with some fancy new features. Sega says that "the release will bring fans of the classics some nostalgic memories, but with modernised features added it’s now also for the new generation of players to enjoy".

Online multiplayer, achievements, mirror modes, a same-screen local co-op mode, and rewind and save states all offer new ways to play the classic list of titles - if you haven't seen the full list of games available in the compilation, we recently gathered them all up for you right here.

To celebrate the release date reveal, a brand new trailer has been released (which you can see above) and we've also got a small batch of screenshots to share:

Between this and the Sega AGES range, the Switch will soon have more Sega content than it knows what to do with. Will you be giving this one a purchase?
