Sega Mega Drive Classics set to make the Switch the Sega handheld we never had

While Sega may have given us the Game Gear, which was the handheld equivalent of the Master System, they never followed it up with a 16-bit version; conceding the early handheld wars to the Gameboy. However, we finally get to legitimately enjoy a bumper collection of classic Sega games on our commute with the upcoming Switch release of Sega Mega Drive Classics.
