Nintendo Switch owners are next in line to get a stab at the SEGA Genesis Classics bundle with a release date set for Dec. 7. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners already have access to the 53 retro favorites, but those looking to play the bundle on a portable console will soon have the option to do so.

SEGA described the bundle and spelled out the unique features of the Nintendo Switch version in a press release.

Hot on the heels of the Sega Ages titles announced last week and set to launch during the Tokyo Gaming Show, SEga continues a winter of bringing great classics to the portable Switch. Retro fans can now finally play the Genesis / Mega Drive collection on their way to school or work, in their lunch break or basically anywhere on the go! Sega Genesis Classics / Sega Mega Drive Classics has over 50 retro favorites to experience across every genre: arcade action, shooters, beat’m ups, puzzlers and hidden gems, with a raft of modern features. Exclusively for the Nintendo Switch players can now compete in same-screen local coop mode and use each Joy-Con individually if desired. Familiar features like online multiplayer, achievements, mirror modes, rewind and save states are all part of the collection for everyone to revisit and enjoy.
