The SEGA 3D Classics Collection for Nintendo 3DS comes to Europe in November.
M2’s work in remastering classic Sega games has long been admired. Their range of 3DS remasters are shining example of how older games can be lovingly updated for modern platforms without losing any of their appeal and also act as a fine piece of game preservation.
The SEGA 3D Classics Collection – a boxed collection of nine titles including Sonic the Hedgehog and Altered Beast – was released in Japan last December and North America in April. The collection is now confirmed for European release on 4th November, 2016.
Included in the package are two games making their European 3DS debuts in Maze Walker and Power Drift. Additionally, Fantasy Zone II: The Tears of Opa-Opa – the extension to Fantasy Zone II – is included. And if the collection is the same as that released in other regions, there’s an unlockable bonus game too.
