SEGA AGES Herzog Zwei Dated
The next Sega Ages title will be the real-time strategy game SEGA AGES Herzog Zwei, which releases on August 27, priced at ¥999.
Herzog Zwei is an enhanced port of the 1989 Mega Drive game, that itself was a sequel to the earlier Herzog title for MSX and PC-8801. Originally developed by Technosoft (Thunder Force), the game is seen as being a precursor to the MOBA genre, and the likes of Command & Conquer, Warcraft, Starcraft, etc. The Switch version is again developed by M2, and adds network battles, an auto-save feature, a practice mode, plus much more. The release date is for Japan, with the western release coming at a later date.
Herzog Zwei is also the last announced Sega Ages title, with 18 titles already available for the system including: Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force IV, Phantasy Star, OutRun, Gain Ground, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Puyo Puyo, Virtua Racing, Wonder Boy in Monster Land, Space Harrier, Columns II, Ichidant-R, Shinobi, Fantasy Zone, Puyo Puyo Tsu, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, G-LOC AIR BATTLE, and Thunder Force AC.
