Today Oct. 30, 2013 SEGA of America announced that they'll be releasing several 3D remakes of some of their iconic classic arcade games for the Nintendo 3DS, including Sonic The Hedgehog, Shinobi III, and many others. The games will retail for $5.99 each from the Nintendo eShop.
Most of the games are currently available on iOS and Android for half the price or less, however they aren't in 3D nor do they have a dedicated game pad for control. SEGA has had many compilations in the past, such as the Sega Arcade Collection for Game Boy Advance. This time though, players can pick and choose which games they want individually instead of purchasing a collection of games with titles they might not want.
According to a prepared statement we received from the president and COO of SEGA of America John Cheng:
These games were completely re-built to offer a robust 3D experience that offers more modern gameplay while still keeping true to the original. We look forward to bringing these classic SEGA titles to Nintendo 3DS for fans – both old and new.
