Update: Nintendo has added the game to its website and like the other games in the Sega 3D Classics line it’s $5.99!

Well, it’s a little later than planned (they just said September), but not by that much. 😛

Sega of America confirmed today on twitter that the game is finally coming out at least in NA on October 8th, after having already been released in Japan back on July 22nd.

The 3DS version actually has a wireless co-op multiplayer feature where one player is Sonic, and the other is an invincible version of Tails to assist Sonic in the game, basically like you did on the TV back in the day. You’re also able to save at anytime and can now more easily unlock Super Sonic just by beating the game on any mode, which gives Sonic all the chaos emeralds when the feature is turned on.

Sadly at the moment there’s no release date yet for Europe.

So now we finally have news about 3D Sonic 2 after its announcement back in April!

We have the Japanese website, and thanks to Nintendaan, we have the info that the game will support co-op play, but each player will need the game.

Nintendaan was also kind enough to record the trailer and snap the screenshots from the eShop page as seen below!

Although SEGA suggested previously that the 3D classics line for Nintendo 3DS would be closing with Thunderblade, a further three 3D Classic titles have been confirmed by SEGA to be on the horizon.

At this time, the third set in the series only contains 3 titles. One title in particular however is certainly of interest to TSS; Sonic 2! That’s right, that means 3D special stages!

The other two games are the aforementioned Streets of Rage 2 (due in July) and Gunstar Heroes (due in August). Sonic 2 will be out in September. All will be priced at MSRP $5.99/€4.99/£4.49

Are you excited for Sonic 2 or perhaps the other two games? Have you bought any of the previous games yet? Let us know!

Update: We also have screens and transparent logos for you all!
