A trio of new Sega Genesis classics come to the Switch

Nintendo Switch players who subscribe to the console’s Expansion Pack are in for a treat with Sonic Spinball, Shining Force II, and Space Harrier II.

A set of classics

It looks like the Genesis offerings on Nintendo’s Expansion Pack might be just as plentiful as the N64’s. The company announced today that 3 more games are making their way to the platform.

And all of them are 16bit classics. Say hello to Sonic Spinball, Shining Force II, and Space Harrier II.

  • In Sonic The Hedgehog Spinball, Dr. Robotnik’s fortress is a giant pinball machine! Help Sonic spin, bounce and bump through four different pinball zones made up of glittering caverns, slimy sewers, boiling lava and monstrous machinery to collect the Chaos Emeralds and save the inhabitants of Mobius from a mountain of trouble.
  • Shining Force II joins the original Shining Force in the SEGA Genesis – Nintendo Switch Online library! In this tactical RPG fantasy adventure, you’re tasked with leading the titular Shining Force in cinematic battles against an ancient evil that threatens to overtake the land.
  • Become the heroic Space Harrier in Space Harrier II and battle a bevy of wicked creatures in this frantic and challenging action game, which was one of the original launch titles for the SEGA Genesis!

The above are all available right now on the Switch. Just keep in mind that you do have to be an Expansion Pack subscriber to play them. If you already subscribe to the base plan, you’ll need an upgrade to dig in.
