Previously Japan-only remakes of classic SEGA titles are now making their way to North American and European 3DS eShops, according to a blog announcement from SEGA, and a European-only Nintendo Direct Mini. The games to be available include:
- 3D Altered Beast - 3D Ecco the Dolphin - 3D Galaxy Force II - 3D Shinobi III - 3D Sonic The Hedgehog - 3D Space Harrier - 3D Streets of Rage - 3D Super Hang-On
Price hasn't been announced yet, but this is great news for those that enjoy these old SEGA IPs, as well as the 3D treatment Nintendo already gave some of their classics with the "3D Classics" series.
You're just all about swiping news from my posts today, aren't you Grant?
There's more than one of those I want to play for the first time (or again in some cases). I only wish one (or both) of the Shining Force games were on that list. The 3D when the actual fight portions of the battles happen would look pretty slick in 3D (think Fire Emblem Awakening).
I'm actually getting the news from posts over at DayOnePatch - did you already post a thread about this? If so, sorry! We can lock and/or delete this one if you made the news already. I just didn't see it...
I'm strangely psyched for playing Super Hang-On and Space Harrier in 3D. I've only played ports of the arcade games for a couple of minutes, never experienced them in the arcades. But they manage to make the 3DS ports really exciting in this interview, and this one.
Space Harrier is a game I remember playing and liking, but it's been many, many years since I've touched it. But it's basically the proto-Kid Icarus Uprising. And it's SEGA. So I'm probably down for giving it a spin.
