SEGA has announced that Herzog Zwei will be the last SEGA Ages game for Switch. However, the company is stating that they will continue with re-releases for the platform! In addition, the former SEGA Ages team’s next project is already in the works for Switch. Here’s what SEGA had to say, courtesy of Nintendo Everything:
“Although the SEGA Ages project has come to an end with the release of Herzog Zwei, there are many games in the collection you can still buy and play. So please check them out if you don’t own them yet. However, this doesn’t mean that this is the end of SEGA’s plans to re-release past titles. I, along with SEGA’s own (Rieko) Kodama and (Kagasei) Shimomura, are currently hard at work on our next project. At this point in time, unfortunately, I can’t tell you whether or not M2 will be involved. If this makes you think, ‘Oh, then they’re definitely doing something with M2,’ I hope we can live up to your expectations.
Considering SEGA Ages has ended, some may be wondering if we have plans to continue re-releasing past titles on Nintendo Switch – I want that to happen. I hope to bring something over that will really satisfy Switch players. So until then, we hope you’ll look forward to it.”
M2’s Tsuyoshi Matsuoka also shared the following:
“For us at M2, there are still a lot of other titles we want to port over as well. Personally speaking, I want to re-release SEGA’s entire history of interactive games!”
