Sega is bringing two puzzle games never before released in the West to the Nintendo Switch as part of their Sega Ages lineup: Ichidant-R and Columns II.
Originally released for Japanese arcades in 1994, Ichidant-R is a spin-off of Bonanza Bros. featuring a compilation of wacky mini-games set in a fantasy medieval backdrop. The game combines puzzle and action in a party game format that can be enjoyed locally or online.
Columns II is another title previously only released in Japan. The Switch version comes with an online versus mode, a stage select feature, and a tabletop mode that rotates player two’s screen 180 degrees for face-to-face battles. The original Genesis version of Columns comes bundled as well.
Ichidant-R and Columns II will be available on the Nintendo eShop starting on October 17 for $7.99 each.
This is the latest Sega Ages release. In recent months, Sega has also released Space Harrier, Puyo Puyo, Virtua Racing and Wonder Boy: Monster Land on Switch. Last month, the Genesis Mini micro-console came out with over 40 games.
