The SEGA 3D Classics range will make a return in early 2015, with the publisher today confirming their plans to spotlight the company’s arcade history through monthly releases.
This will be led by 3D After Burner II, which will then be followed in each successive month by 3D Fantasy Zone, 3D OutRun, 3D Fantasy Zone II and 3D Thunder Blade – arriving one at a time. These build on the critical success that the first batch have achieved, with developer M2 working to recreate the vintage arcade experience, while delivering new modes, options, and original musical tracks.
“These games were completely re-built to offer a robust 3D experience that offers more modern gameplay while still keeping true to the original,” comments SEGA of America president John Cheng. “These are the best versions of some of our most unforgettable games and playing them is just like sitting in an arcade machine.”
Each game will be priced at £4.49 (€4.99/$5.99) and will be available exclusively for Nintendo 3DS through the Nintendo eShop.
