Sega’s G-LOC coming to Switch’s Sega Ages lineup

An arcade classic, Sega’s G-LOC offered up fast air-to-air combat action. Now the game will be flying onto Nintendo Switch as the latest Sega Ages title.

Sorry, no rotating cockpit this time

If you know G-LOC from the arcades, then you know all about the famous cabinet that it inhabited. The cab was cockpit-like, and actually allowed gamers to sit inside of it. It provided movement as well, giving a little 4D-type action to the game.

While you won’t find that in the upcoming Nintendo Switch version, you will find everything else that made the title a quarter muncher. And if you remember this one more from the Game Gear than the arcades, you’re in for a treat. That’s because the graphics are just a little better than Sega’s tiny portable screen could muster.

As usual with Sega Ages titles too, you’ll find a host of improvements to the game itself.

There’s never been a better time to try out this high-octane arcade title thanks to the all-new features introduced in this enhanced release. Shoot your competition down the leaderboards with online rankings, recreate that feeling of the original hydraulic-powered arcade cabinet with a moving cabinet display (among other screen options), or increase those g-forces to the max with AGES Mode, which adds more enemies, more missiles, and a more powerful lock-on system. Finally, the rookies out there can make the skies a little friendlier (or scarier) with multiple difficulty options.


Landing exclusively on the Nintendo Switch, Sega Ages G-LOC is set to arrive on April 30th.
