Sega 3D Classics Collection

Sega is bringing its Sega 3D Classics Collection to 3DS the Americas on April 26, the publisher announced. It will cost $29.99 / CA$44.99.

It includes nine classic games, four of which have never been released on the 3DS previously and two of which have never been released outside of Japan. Each game has been enhanced with new visuals, game modes, and more.

Here’s the full list of included titles:

Titles Never Released Outside of Japan

  • Power DriftThis sprite-based circuit racer puts you head to head against other AI racers in a twisting, turning, jumping, looping race to the finish.
  • Puyo Puyo 2This head-to-head competitive puzzle game is simple to learn, hard to master, and compellingly addictive. Compete against the AI or friends in local multiplayer. Note: because of the quirks of trying to localize a game hard-coded in Japanese, the game has been left entirely in its original language. English instructions are available in the included digital manual.

Titles Not Released on the 3DS Before

  • Maze WalkerOriginally designed for the SegaScope 3-D glasses on the Sega Master System, Maze Walker comes to life on the 3DS, faithfully reproducing the sense of depth as players try to escape the mysterious, twisting maze filled with unknown dangers. Originally released as Maze Hunter for the Master System in the West.
  • Fantasy Zone II: The Tears of Opa-OpaThe sentient space ship Opa-Opa is back to defend its bases from evil (but cute!) invaders in the classic scrolling shooter. For SEGA history buffs, this version ofFantasy Zone II is the original Master System version.
