Sega strikes another blow in long running console war with Nintendo.

Turn your Nintendo 3DS into a Sega console with the 3D Classics Collection decals.

Sega 3D Classics Collections

Turn your Nintendo 3DS into a Sega console with the 3D Classics Collection decals.

Since Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games there has been an uneasy truce between Sega and Nintendo. Their mascots have starred in a few games together, Sonic is allowed to make guest appearances in Smash Bros, and Nintendo lets Sega publish their increasingly shabby Sonic platformers on its consoles.

But it seems the good old days of all out war are returning, with Sega launching a covert campaign to take over Nintendo hardware.

Sega’s boxed compilation of remastered classics, the SEGA 3D Classics Collection, will come with a sheet of decals that will let you Sega-fy your 3DS.

Sega Classics Collection Decals

Pre-orders and a limited number of launch copies will come with a decal sheet bonus item that features nine, silver hued, SEGA logos and console stickers, including:

  • Sega Master System logo
  • Sega Master System console
  • Sega Mega Drive logo
  • Sega Genesis logo
  • Sega Genesis console
  • 16-Bit Genesis styling
  • Professor Asobin
  • SEGA logo
  • GigaDrive logo

The collection itself features seven games, remastered by the good folks at M2. Their work in terms of emulation, added features and all-round polish is second to none, leaving Nintendo’s own Virtual Console efforts for dust.

The collection features titles already released individually on the 3DS eShop and has some obvious omissions – such as Out Run – so a second collection is probably in the works. In the pack are:

  • Power Drift
  • Puyo Puyo 2
  • Fantasy Zone II W
  • Sonic The Hedgehog
  • Thunder Blade
  • Galaxy Force II
  • Altered Beast
  • Fantasy Zone II
  • Maze Walker

The SEGA 3D Classics Collection will be released in the US on April 26, 2016, in stores and digitally on the Nintendo eShop.
