SEGA AGES Virtua Racing Races Towards Nintendo Switch Release
SEGA has announced that SEGA AGES Virtua Racing will release on Nintendo Switch, the next addition to their collection of classics that are being re-released on the portable home console.
Originally released in arcades, the Formula One racing game went on to receive three ports to the SEGA Mega Drive, SEGA 32X and SEGA Saturn.
It had three levels for players to choose from that had different difficulties – whether that be Big Forest (Beginner), Bay Bridge (Intermediate) or Acropolis (Expert) – and had started life as a chance to explore SEGA’s new 3D graphics platform, Model 1. Encouraged with the project’s progress, SEGA greenlit it to become a standalone arcade title.
M2 is the developer behind the SEGA AGES ports on Nintendo Switch, with the first games, Sonic the Hedgehog and Thunder Force IV, now available on the Nintendo eShop worldwide.
