We’ve just heard word from SSMB member Hero of Legend that his local GameStop store in Canada is listing a portable version of Sonic Generations for Nintendo 3DS. The game is currently scheduled to just be coming to Sony’s PlayStation 3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 consoles.
Here’s Hero of Legend’s report:
So I went to my local GS in Canada, and I asked if the person working there could print out their system game schedule, as their websites suck now for new game findings (US and Canada sites).
So I looked in the 3DS section, and found this:
Release Date – Description – System – Price – SKU
12/31/11 – SONIC GENERATIONS – 3DS – 39.99 – 7031719
It’s not in the Wii or DS section sadly. But this makes sense given the 3DS’ PS360 shading capabilities.
A Sonic game was listed to be coming to Nintendo 3DS in a press document at last year’s E3 and recently it was revealed that Nintendo Power’s latest issue hints at the possibility of Sonic Generations coming to a Nintendo platform(s) in its next issue page. Fellow fansite Sonic Paradise also reported in March that the SEGA representative they spoke to in October told them that ‘Sonic Anniversary’ would be coming to Nintendo 3DS. If true, this would all tie together perfectly.
If we hear any more news regarding this, we’ll be sure to pass it along.
Thanks to Hero of Legend for the heads up!
