Sega is set to bring a host of classic titles to the Nintendo Switch.

The gaming giants are planning on teaming up with Nintendo to bring a slate of some of its classic games to the company's newest hybrid console, which lets players take their adventures on the move as well as play them as a home console.

Sega revealed their plans during Sega Fest in Japan over the weekend, where they announced 'Sega Ages' - a lineup of retro Sega games that are coming to North America, Europe, and Japan later this year.

The first batch of 'Sega Ages' titles are set to be released this summer, and consists of five classic Sega games: 'Phantasy Star', 'Alex Kidd in Miracle World', 'Sonic the Hedgehog', 'Thunder Force IV', and 'Gain Ground'.

The 'Sega Ages' ports are being handled by M2, the studio behind the Sega 3D Classics series on 3DS, as well as the Game Boy Advance line of Virtual Console titles on Wii U.

As of the time of writing, Sega is yet to announce pricing details for the games, or an exact release date.

It comes after the company also announced at Sega Fest that they would be releasing a miniature version of their legendary 16-bit Mega Drive console in commemoration of the device's 30th anniversary this year.

According to AtGames, whose technology will power the console, the so-called Mega Drive Mini will first be released in Japan, with a release coming to "the US and other territories later this year."

A tweet from AtGames' Twitter account - which has since been deleted - read: "The rumors are true! Sega is going to release the Mega Drive Mini in Japan, powered by the latest AtGames technology. This same new and improved technology will find its way into the US and other territories later this year! #MegaDriveMini (sic)"
