Two all-time Sega classics come to Switch in updated form

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Puyo Puyo 2 are the latest Sega classics to be updated for Nintendo Switch.



Sega Ages

Two more Sega classics are racing, or perhaps that should that be dropping, onto Nintendo Switch this month.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Puyo Puyo 2 are confirmed as the latest games to come to Nintendo Switch as part of the Sega Ages series. They will be released via the Nintendo eShop on February 20, 2020.

As usual, M2 are working on the remasters, and they include many of the same quality of life improvements found in other Sega Ages titles. However, this time around, there are some all-new game modes to enjoy in addition to familiar features like game rewind and online leaderboards.


Updates to Sonic The Hedgehog 2 include a version of the Drop Dash mode that debuted in 2017’s Sonic Mania. Other new additions include Super Sonic Mode and online-supported Time Trials. Best of all, Knuckles the Echidna is playable character without the need to dust off a copy of Sonic & Knuckles.

For the first time, arcade puzzle classic Puyo Puyo 2 includes an English language localisation. It’s also enhanced by two-player online battles and the welcome addition of a colourblind mode.

The Nintendo Switch may be swamped with retro games, but both titles are outstanding examples of their respective genres and easy to recommend. Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Puyo Puyo 2 will be released separately on February 20, 2020. In the US they are priced at $7.99.
