Sega Ages: Volume 1, known simply as Sega Ages in North America, is a video game compilation for the Sega Saturn. It was only released in western regions, with Sega publishing the game in Europe and Working Designs in North America.

Games included

Sega Ages: Volume 1 contains three games previously released in Japan as stand-alone titles. Though Sega produced ten more entries in its Sega Ages series on the Saturn, all were exclusive to Japan. Despite its title, Sega did not release a "Volume 2", nor did the company explicitly acknowledge development of such a compilation.

History

Development

Sega Ages: Volume 1 was requested by Sega Europe, before being licensed by Working Designs for the North American market[5].

Versions

All three games in Sega Ages: Volume 1 are almost identical to their stand-alone Saturn counterparts, which are in turn extremely similar to the arcade originals. However, many of the "arranged" sound tracks from the stand-alone Saturn conversions were removed due to disc space limitations. All offer extra difficulty options.
