Get Ready! SEGA AGES; Space Harrier and Puyo Puyo Drop August 22nd

A Land of Dragons and Puyos Await You on the Nintendo Switch™

Space Harrier and Puyo Puyo are the latest to join the SEGA AGES collection for the Nintendo Switch on August 22nd for 10.95 AUD, 6.99 EUR, 5.99 GBP each! 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. Take one hit, though, and you’ll lose their protection!
The SEGA AGES release of Puyo Puyo is the perfect way to play the first entry in the beloved puzzle series. 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! Note that Nintendo Switch Online is required for online play.

About Space Harrier
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!  

About Puyo Puyo
Based on the original arcade release, you’ll need to keep your reflexes razor sharp in this simple but highly engaging action puzzle game. Your objective is to create combos with four or more “Puyos” of the same colour, all the while preventing these colourful blobs from reaching the top of your playfield. It’s a battle of skill and endurance in this entertaining game filled with charming characters!

Space Harrier and Puyo Puyo will be available individually on the Nintendo Switch eShop in the Americas and Europe on August 22nd for 10.95 AUD, 6.99 EUR, 5.99 GBP, with commensurate European pricing. For more information, visit the official website at

Every SEGA AGES addition adds iconic beloved games from SEGA’s back catalogue to the Nintendo Switch’s library with good tune-ups to allow those games to be enjoyed by newer fans. I have my fingers crossed for Jet Set Radio to join that line up sooner rather than later.
