According to SEGA Ages senior producer Kagasei Shimomura, the overseas reception to the series has been much higher than anticipated. Sonic, Out Run, and Alex Kidd in Miracle World have received an especially big response, particularly in Europe.

Unfortunately, things aren’t going quite as well in Japan. Shimomura and supervisor Yosuke Okunari indicated that sales have been a bit slow and they need to appeal to its Japanese fan base. Shimomura added that SEGA Ages on Switch has been selling less than half as well as the 3DS classics that were developed a few years ago.

Following its release on the Japanese Switch eShop a few hours ago, SEGA Ages Virtua Racing has received a new trailer. We have it below.

SEGA Ages Virtua Racing will release in Japan next week, SEGA has announced. It’ll be out on April 25 for 925 yen.

A number of features will be included such as a two-player online multiplayer race mode, a local race mode with support for up to eight players, and replays.

Eventually, SEGA Ages Virtua Racing should be available in North America and Europe. But the past few SEGA Ages games have not released worldwide at the same time. We’ll let you know as soon as we have news for the west.

SEGA Ages Virtua Racer is also still happening. While there’s no release date yet, development is 80% complete. That means we should be seeing it sooner rather than later.
