Sega is bringing the classics Shinobi and Fantasy Zone to the Nintendo Switch on January 23 as part of their Sega Ages lineup.
The Sega Ages series brings classic Sega titles back to life on the Nintendo Switch with new features. M2 is the studio behind the ports, the same Japanese developer responsible for the popular Sega 3D Classics series on the Nintendo 3DS.
According to Sega:
The challenging side-scrolling action title Shinobi strikes back with an AGES mode that gives a white-robed Musashi extra health and damage, and an added Melee button that lets you dispatch enemies up close and personal. And if the hordes of ZEED are proving too much of a test, difficulty, and stage select options have been implemented, along with a reverse time feature.
Long before Sonic, there was an adorable sentient ship named Opa-Opa, the star of Sega Ages Fantasy Zone! This update to the vibrant arcade hit includes a helpful Coin Stock assist feature for those not as well versed in shooters, a Time Attack mode perfect for speedrunners, extra bosses, and even the option to play as Opa-Opa’s brother, Upa-Upa!
You can also expect the usual Sega Ages accouterments such as replays, online leaderboards, and a host of other options to make these the definitive versions you can play on the go!
