Sega adds to 3D Classics line with Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Streets of Rage 2, Gunstar Heroes


Sega has announced they’ll be expanding their 3D Classics line this Fall with the release of three new titles. All three games will be priced at $5.99 apiece (€4.99 in Europe and £4.49 in the UK).

3D Streets of Rage 2 will lead things off in July, followed by 3D Gunstar Heroes in August, and 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 in September. Like the previous games in the series, all three will come equipped with “stunning 3D visuals [that have been] optimized for the 3DS.” Brand new modes and features will also be included in each title.

Two other 3D Classics will close out the most recent wave of releases including this Thursday’s 3D Fantasy Zone II and May 14’s 3D Thunder Blade.

Sega Genesis classics arriving individually on PlayStation Store, free for PlayStation Plus

If you didn’t buy Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection, shame on you. Seriously. It’s a beautiful time capsule letting you experience firsthand in high definition and surround sound what things were like in a simpler, arguably better, time for gaming, before the console war was determined by sales numbers. If you held off because you only wanted a few of the games, PlayStation is here to help. Starting March 29, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Streets of Rage 2, Golden Axe 2, Comix Zone, and Altered Beast will be arriving one after another about every month or so, up to August 16. Each game will cost $4.99 and have its own set of trophies, instead of just having at most one on a disc. Even better news is that all of these games will arrive early for PlayStation Plus subscribers, for free.

It’s getting harder and harder to resist that PSN Plus subscription, and if I didn’t already own the Blu Ray with these games, it might have been enough to push me over the edge. If they announce something crazy like Shining Force III, all episodes, for PSN Plus free and early, I might have to run to my local gamestop, knocking over racks and shelves, completely oblivious to the fact that I could have bought the subscription online… Hit the jump for the full details on the games.
