Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Puyo Puyo 2 Are Back and Better Than Ever Before, Thanks to SEGA AGES

To be this good...

What's better than having one of the greatest video games of all time joining the SEGA AGES collection on Nintendo Switch™? How about TWO of the greatest video games of all time? SEGA AGES Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Puyo Puyo 2 head to the Nintendo Switch on February 20, 2020!

For so many, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 was the reason players spin-dashed their way to the local game store to pick up a Genesis. Aside from the return of the competitive two-player mode, newly-added features include the "drop dash" (introduced in Sonic Mania) that lets players spin dash in mid-air to quickly gain speed; Super Sonic Mode, which lets you play as the overpowered hedgehog right from the start; a Time Trial mode with online rankings; and perhaps most exciting of all, Knuckles the Echidna! Yes, you won't need to bust out your copy of Sonic & Knuckles to play as the grape-loving knucklehead.

Also, no, your eyes aren't deceiving you - after 25 long years, Puyo Puyo 2 will finally receive an official English localization for Western fans! This release of the arcade version goes above and beyond expectations. SEGA AGES Puyo Puyo 2 adds two-player online battles, online rankings, a quick rewind function, and a much-requested colorblind mode. This fan-favorite entry is now more accessible than ever before!

About Sonic The Hedgehog 2

Hailed as one of the most successful games for the Genesis (Mega Drive), Sonic The Hedgehog 2 garnered critical acclaim swiftly after its 1992 release. Follow Sonic and Tails (in his series debut!) as they team up against the nefarious Dr. Eggman in order to save the Chaos Emeralds from the clutches of evil.

About Puyo Puyo 2

Puyo Puyo 2 (also known as Puyo Puyo Tsu) is considered one of the biggest arcade games of all time in Japan. This sequel introduced an improved ruleset along with the ability to offset Garbage Puyo sent by your opponent by creating Puyo chains of your own. Swap between Single Puyo Puyo, Double Puyo Puyo, and Endless Puyo Puyo game modes for even more Puyo fun in this classic puzzle experience.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Puyo Puyo 2 will be available individually on the Nintendo Switch eShop in the Americas and Europe on February 20, 2020, for $7.99 (with commensurate European pricing). For more information, please visit the official website at http://segaages.sega.com/.

Puyo Puyo/Sonic dev retweets Masahiro Sakurai's mention of the upcoming Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter Presentation

Well this would be an interesting reveal

We've got just one day until we see who the final fighter is for Smash Bros. Ultimate's first Fighter Pass, and we've got something that's potentially juicy to mull over.

Mizuki Hosoyamada, a man who has worked on numerous Puyo Puyo and Sonic games, has retweeted Masahiro Sakurai's mention of the next Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter Presentation. That certainly has raised some eyeballs among fans, with many thinking the upcoming reveal is going to tie into Puyo Puyo or Sonic somehow. It seems that Hosoyamada is died more to Puyo Puyo, so if his retweet is indeed a tease, I'd expect some sort of Puyo Puyo reveal for Smash.
