Sega 3D Classics coming to US and Europe

Eight remakes of 16-bit favourites headed to 3DS

Sega has announced that the Sega 3D Classics series will be coming to 3DS in the west, with the first two titles arriving by the end of November.

Previously released in Japan, the Sega 3D Classics series offer 3D versions of popular Mega Drive and arcade games developed by Sega, much like the Nintendo 3D Classics range.


Each title will be released on the 3DS eShop in North America and Europe, with two games released per week starting from the end of November.

Every individual game will be priced at $5.99 / €4.99 / £4.49.

The release schedule is as follows:

3D Space Harrier - November 28
3D Super Hang-On - November 28
3D Sonic The Hedgehog - December 5
3D Altered Beast - December 5
3D Ecco the Dolphin - December 12
3D Galaxy Force II - December 12
3D Shinobi III - December 19
3D Streets of Rage - December 19

"These games were completely re-built to offer a robust 3D experience that offers more modern gameplay while still keeping true to the original", said Sega America president and COO John Cheng on the official Sega Blog. "We look forward to bringing these classic SEGA titles to Nintendo 3DS for fans both old and new."

Sega originally announced the Sega 3D Classics line-up for Japan in November 2012. The first title released there was Sonic The Hedgehog, which arrived on the Japanese eShop in May 2013.
