UPDATE (2/2): The Sega 3D Classics Collection is now up for pre-order on Amazon. Make sure to check it out!
Ever since 2012, Sega has slowly but steadily released a wide array of their classic titles on the 3DS eShop. These ports take advantage of the stereoscopic 3D effect and are very faithful to their source code, with the arcade games even featuring the ability to change options that were once only available to those with access to the original arcade board.
Now 9 of these classic games are coming together in a retail bundle for the West. Check out the full list:
Fantasy Zone II W
Sonic The Hedgehog
Galaxy Force II
Puyo Puyo 2
Fantasy Zone II (Master System)
Of these, the final four are exclusive to the retail bundle, with no individual eShop release planned.
This retail pack is actually a localization of the second bundle in Japan. The first, which featured the likes of Ecco and Streets of Rage, is being skipped over, and we can’t help but wonder if it’s so they can feature a particular blue hedgehog on the box. Also worthy of note is the fact the box art is designed by Ken Sugimori, of Pokémon fame.
Sega 3D Classics Collection will be heading to North America on April 26th, and will be $29.99.Leave a Comment
