Fresh on the heels of its Shenmue I & II announcement over the weekend, Sega's confirmed it will be digging even further into its back catalogue with the release of Sega Ages for the Nintendo Switch this summer. 

The initiative will bring a number of classic titles from the software giant to Ninty's hybrid box, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, and Thunder Force IV. The full lineup includes over 15 games and will be handled by studio M2, who has cut its teeth on a number of brilliant retro revivals over the past few years.

Sega also confirmed that it's launching a Sega Mega Drive Mini at some point, clearly following in the footsteps of Nintendo's success with the mini NES and SNES. The Mega Drive has seen a miniature version released in the past, although it wasn't manufactured by Sega and suffered from multiple emulation issues, so hopefully this one will fare a lot better.

The Sonic creator is clearly basking in a nostalgic glow this year, having previously confirmed that the Sega Mega Drive Classics compilation will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in late May.
