Play classic arcade and Genesis games such as Sonic the Hedgehog with added 3D support on your 3DS. 

Eight 3D Classics games from Sega are coming to the 3DS eShop in North America and Europe soon, according to Sega and the Nintendo Direct from earlier today.

The titles are, similar to Nintendo's 3D Classics from 2011 and 2012, remade ports of arcade and Genesis games with stereoscopic 3D added.

The games are:

  • Altered Beast
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Galaxy Force II
  • Shinobi III
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Space Harrier
  • Streets of Rage
  • Super Hang-On

Specific release dates haven't been confirmed yet, but almost all of the games are already available in Japan. Galaxy Force II is due out July 24 in Japan. Shinobi III and Streets of Rage are both set for a 2013 release in Japan.



So is Altered Beast or Urban Champion the most heinous misuse of the term "Classic"?

"Classic" is everything that can cause two hours worth of discussions on Radio Free Nintendo.

altered beast was decent in the arcades I've heard

Unfortunately it's based on the Genesis version of Altered Beast.  Space Harrier, Super Hang-On and Galaxy Force II are all the arcade versions thankfully.

I hope the series continues, I'd really like to see arcade games like After Burner, Power Drift, Golden Axe: Revenge of Death Adder, Fantasy Zone 2 DX and Puyo Puyo Tsuu yet.  Maybe they'll even get to polygonal stuff like Virtua Racing and Virtua Fighter eventually.

"ecco" is not a classic, would not even call it a game! :@
