Sega is happy to announce the launch of Sega Genesis Classics on the Nintendo Switch today. The game is available in both physical and digital formats depending on your preferences. The game is a retro gaming collection that includes over 50 old school titles from the Sega Genesis console generation. It’s library of retro games ranges from arcade-style action to beat ’em ups, shooters, puzzlers, and hidden gems. You’ll access them through the virtual bedroom of a 90s retro gamer.

Sega Genesis Classics also adds some modern features including achievements, mirror modes, online multiplayer, same-screen local multiplayer, and rewind/save states. Here is the new trailer they released to celebrate its launch on the Nintendo Switch:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
