Two more Sega Ages titles are nearly here, and this time around it’s all about putting your brains to the test with puzzles, puzzles, and more puzzles.


Columns II, sequel to the familiar match-three classic, ups the value with a variety of modes and options to line up gems (and more). This’ll include online play, and a special tabletop mode that rotates the action and lets you play face-to-face with a friend. It’ll even have the original Columns included within.

Ichidant-R, on the other hand, is more a collection of minigames built to tease your brain. There’ll be an RPG-style quest mode, a four-player board game mode, and a more free mode to let you enjoy these however you like. Some of this will have Japanese text only, but that shouldn’t stop you from checking out this unique bit of Sega’s history.

Both Columns II and Ichidant-R will arrive in the Nintendo Switch eShop starting October 17th for $7.99 each.
