Sega of America and Sega Europe released Phantasy Star digitally for Nintendo Switch on Thursday. The company also announced that Out Run will launch in North America and Europe on January 10. Both games are part of the Sega Ages project for Nintendo Switch.
Sega of America describes Phantasy Star:
One of the most innovative games of its time, Phantasy Star is a groundbreaking sci-fi RPG that follows Alis in her planet-spanning quest to avenge the death of her brother and topple a tyrannical regime. Besides faithfully recreating the original experience, this version adds something for everyone, including a new map display to help novice adventurers and a compendium where longtime fans can view their favorite monsters.
Sega is reviving its Sega Ages project for Nintendo Switch in Japan, North America, and Europe. Sega already released Phantasy Star and Out Run for Nintendo Switch in Japan on October 31 and November 29, respectively.
Other announced games in the project include Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force IV (Lightning Force: Quest for the Darkstar), Gain Ground, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Space Harrier, Columns II (Columns II: The Voyage Through Time), Thunder Force AC, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Virtua Racing.
