I don't know where else to put this and since this is related to Sega Ages, I figure this is the best place to put it. If mods want to move it elsewhere, go ahead, etc.

According to this:

This is the result of a survey Sega did to their japanese audience on what games they'd want for Sega Ages.

I can't read Japanese myself, but based on what other people have said the important parts are:

1 - Jet Set Radio
2 - Shenmue
3 - Panzer Dragoon Saga
4 - Virtua Fighter
5 - Shining franchise
6 - Panzer Dragoon franchise
7 - Sakura Wars
8 - Puyo Puyo
9 - Virtual On
10 - Burning Rangers
11 - Skies of Arcadia
12 - Nights into Dreams...
13 - Golden Axe
14 - Bug King franchise(?)
15 - Phantasy Star Online
16 - Space Channel 5
17 - Outrunners
18 - Sonic Adventure series
19 - Daytona USA
20 - Spikeout
21 - Dynamite Deka series
22 - Sonic 3 & Knuckles
23 - Virtua Racing
24 - Fantasy Zone
25 - Dragon Force
26 - Sega Rally
27 - Classic Phantasy Star
28 - Guardian Heroes
29 - Outrun
30 - Wing War(?)

Kind of surprised to see the support for Panzer Dragoon Saga being that high. Hell, if it means Sega throws it into an emulator and sells that, I'd take it!

I'm laughing that they actually brought the Lightening Force name back for the US...at least you can change the region of the game right?

"Bug King franchise (?)" is likely Mushiking:_The_King_of_Beetles.

I wonder if SEGA will ever bring up again the SEGA AGES 2500 series of games.
While being low-cost productions, they were remakes that seemed nice to incorporate into packs like this one, either for portable or home consoles, Steam or even mobile platforms.

Virtua Racing is among the lineup now:

Interesting screenshot - the draw distance for computer players is still low but the track is being rendered far into the distance. They might be trying to render all of the scenery all of the time - even the PS2 port doesn't do that.

I'm intrigued by the fact they seem to be using the 32X version, likely for the specific reason it fits modern TV screen ratios.

The fact they leave out the 'Deluxe' moniker may suggest against it though.


EDIT: Scratch that. Looking closer it's not the 32X version, actually I'm struggling to grasp which one it is unless they managed to manually make it widescreen.

Yeah, looking again, you're right.

I dunno which one it is actually, unless it's a full on remake in this case.

Actually I'm curious. Has Sega ever rereleased a 32X game (or a Sega CD game for that matter with the exception of Sonic CD)?

I think Knuckles Chaotix was once released on an online distributor or something.

I don't believe so. Even the Lunar games (in their Sega-CD incarnations) have never been re-released, and those were fairly popular in Japan if I recall correctly.

I still want my Snatcher port :colbert:

Yeah, it was available through the now defunct GameTap on demand PC platform. Pretty much the only instance I can think of, but never properly re-released.

Chaotix was on Gametap for a while.

I can only think of Panic! (Switch) on PS2
