Sega have just announced details for their highly anticipated 3D remake of some of their arcade classics, such as Ecco The Dolphin for the Nintendo 3DS. Each of these titles will be priced at a pretty reasonable $5.99/€4.99/£4.49 and they will all be available for download in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. Release dates for the titles are as follows:
- 3D Space Harrier – 11/28/2013
- 3D Super Hang-On – 11/28/2013
- 3D Sonic The Hedgehog – 12/5/2013
- 3D Altered Beast – 12/5/2013
- 3D Ecco the Dolphin – 12/12/2013
- 3D Galaxy Force II – 12/12/2013
- 3D Shinobi III – 12/19/2013
- 3D Streets of Rage – 12/19/2013
“These games were completely re-built to offer a robust 3D experience that offers more modern gameplay while still keeping true to the original,” commented John Cheng, President and COO, SEGA of America. “We look forward to bringing these classic SEGA titles to Nintendo 3DS for fans – both old and new.”
Many of these games have been ported to new formats over the years but as far as I am concerned there is never need of an excuse to replay Sony, Ecco, Streets of Rage or in fact any of these titles! And if Sega do a good job on the graphics then these could very well be some nice bargains to enjoy of the holiday season.
Thank you Sega for providing us with this information.
