    SEGA AGES Fantasy Zone and Shinobi
    Deliver Pulse-Pounding Action!

    – Both Highly Acclaimed Arcade Titles Are Now Available for Nintendo Switch™ –

    Good news: you won’t need to lug around a 300-pound arcade cabinet to play your favorite arcade titles on the go because Shinobi and Fantasy Zone are now available as part of the SEGA AGES line-up for the Nintendo Switch!

    Check out our launch trailer to find out more:


    Prepare to dispatch the hordes of evil in Shinobi with style thanks to a wealth of quality-of-life additions, including an AGES mode that gives the master ninja extra health and damage, difficulty level and stage select options, a rewind time feature, and a unique Cabinet display mode that replicates the look and feel of playing in an actual arcade.

    Or you can take control of that cute, egg-shaped ship Opa-Opa in the bright pastel world of Fantasy Zone. Don’t be fooled by the colorful aesthetics, though – Fantasy Zone is known for its difficulty. Fortunately, this SEGA AGES release includes a very useful Coin Stock option to assist shoot-em-up newcomers, along with a Time Attack mode for a bonus challenge, extra bosses, and the ability to play as Opa-Opa’s brother, Upa-Upa!
