SEGA 3D Classics will continue “indefinitely” if there’s enough demand


SEGA Games producer Yosuke Okunari recently sat down with Japan’s Weekly Famitsu to talk through their Streets of Rage 2, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Gunstar Heroes conversions as part of their SEGA 3D Classics range.

Beyond these three additions, SEGA are unclear whether to continue their steady release. Even with significant praise behind the likes of 3D Out Run, SEGA will have to “look at the big picture” and analyse sales trends – promising that if there’s enough demand the series will continue “indefinitely.”

“These three titles were put out for download overseas simply as an extension [to the existing series]. This really is the end for the second wave [of SEGA 3D Classics],” Okunari explained (translated by Automaton). “Of course we want to consider the development of a third wave based on the response to this second wave, but we have no plans at this point in time.

“We’ll look at the big picture, that is, we’ll look at the sales trends of the physical release of the SEGA 3D Classics line that went on sale last year [in Japan] as well as how the upcoming three titles perform in the global market. We’re happy to do this indefinitely if sales are good.”
