SEGA has announced that Space Harrier and Puyo Puyo will be joining the SEGA AGES collection for the Nintendo Switch on the 22nd of August.
Space Harrier recaptures the spirit of the arcade classic while adding a new feature called Komainu Barrier Attack. To make your journey easier, the Komainu will shield you with a special barrier so you can plow through obstacles with ease. In this third-person rail shooter with pseudo-3D graphics, you, as the young warrior Space Harrier, must save the peaceful Land of the Dragons from vicious creatures. With the help of the dragons and your superhuman abilities, it is up to you to blast your way through a variety of treacherous landscapes in order to defeat these beasts and save the day.
The SEGA AGES release of Puyo Puyo is the perfect way to play the first entry in the beloved puzzle series. Your objective is to create combos with four or more "Puyos" of the same color, all the while preventing these colorful blobs from reaching the top of your playfield. It's a battle of skill and endurance in this entertaining game filled with charming characters. Play against the computer or a friend in the original Arcade Mode, or duke it out online with other players from across the globe. If you feel you're up to the challenge, you can test your skills on the leaderboards with the new Ranking System.
Space Harrier and Puyo Puyo will be available individually on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $7.99.
