SEGA 3D Classics Confirmed for Western Release

It seems that Sonic the Hedgehog is finally coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop… but this time, he’s not alone: he’s brought some friends along!

Through a recent Nintendo Direct Mini, Nintendo of Europe President Satoru Shibata has recently confirmed that the SEGA 3D Classic series will be coming ’round the European eShops soon, with the SEGA Blog confirming North American releases as well. Added features with the Genesis rereleases include 3D depth, a staple for Nintendo’s appropriately named handheld, and toggling sound formats if 3D Sonic the Hedgehog is of any indication.

Though no official release dates have been given yet, the following games, announced from 5:15 onward, are set to roll out in the near future!

  • 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

Plan on downloading these babies once they reach their street dates? Giving a whirl on Mega Drive titles you never got the chance to play before? Picking up a bigger SD card for your 3DS as a precaution? Taking up extra shifts for extra money? Finding the com—you get the idea.
