SEGA AGES is a series of classic SEGA titles being released on the Nintendo Switch. Developed by M2, the Japanese developer known for high-quality ports of classic games such as the popular SEGA 3D Classics series on the Nintendo 3DS, SEGA AGES aims to bring prominent titles from SEGA's legacy catalog to fans around the world. From a selection of home console classics, to a multitude of perfectly-emulated arcade games, SEGA AGES gives fans the ability to build their own retro SEGA collection unlike any other.

SEGA AGES originally debuted as SEGA Ages Vol. 1 Shukudai ga Tant-R, a compilation of enhanced arcade ports of Puzzle & Action: Tant-R and Quiz Shukudai wo Wasuremashita, released on the Sega Saturn in 1996 in Japan. Over time, the SEGA Ages series grew to encompass enhanced ports of dozens of games across multiple systems. The series also made an appearance in the West with SEGA Ages: Volume 1, a collection of enhanced ports of Space Harrier, OutRun, and After Burner II, released in 1997 on the Sega Saturn.
