This is really great news. I'll be getting 3D Galaxy Force II, Super Hang-On, Space Harrier and Shinobi 3.

I dunno if I'll bother with 3D Altered Beast though, because it's based on the graphically inferior home Mega Drive / Genesis console port rather than the superior System 16 arcade version.

For reference:

The setting of Altered Beast reminds me of Marble Zone form Sonic 1. Anyways, I'm personally not interested in 3D Altered Beast or any of the other Sega 3D Classics besides Sonic 1.

Unlike @ClassicSonicFan I intend to buy them all even if I do double (or in Sonic 1's case 7th?) dip on a few of my Genesis carts.

While I am reminded of Marble Zone in the 1st screenshot, I am actually reminded of the 1st level of The Revenge of Shinobi in the second screenshot.

I almost certainly won't get Altered Beast unless there is some sort of bundle deal for getting the lot.

(Not bothered about Super Hang On either. Got it on VC Arcade Already. Along with Arcade Altered Beast).

Not even sure I will get Sonic. (Got an Xperia Play and another tablet with Sonic 1 and Sonic CD). Just got hold of a Madcatz Capcom 360 compatible fightpad and it is pretty much plug and play for Android tablet games.

I will certainly get Shinobi III / Streets of Rage. (If there is anything like buy three get one free I will probably end up with the lot).

Funny that the basic mechanics that 3D Land / 3D World is using was first used in Sonic 3D.

I thought I was the only one thinking that marble zone/altered beast reference.

Haven't been into Sonic for nearly 2 years now. Loved Generations, but it completely burnt out my interest in the series. I never tire of the Genesis./MegaDrive games though. I hope the 3D is good.

If you enjoyed Generations so much, then why did it make you become uninterested in the series?

I just got burnt out. Too much Sonic, got kind of tired of it.

Plus, Lost World is nothing like Generations, so it didn't really respark any interest for me.

I've been playing it and enjoying it quite a bit. The 3D's pretty good too. What do you guys think so far?

I picked it up and I think the 3D looks fantastic, and this is coming from someone who NEVER uses it. There is no blurring when its on and the emulation seems perfect so far. I have yet to encounter any slowdown whatsoever, unlike the Sonic Game Gear releases on the 3DS VC.

I got this version the day it came out and it is great! I never use the Spin Dash and the 3D isn't that great, but otherwise it's still the same game people have loved since 1991 and I am enjoying it all over again!

I bought Sonic 3D last night. It plays perfect. Really smooth with an extremely smooth Framerate. The music in the first sonic was just magical and it doesn't disappoint here. The only thing I think I have a very small beef about is the 3D itself. It looks good but it's not a full screen game. Maybe they couldn't do it full Screen. I highly recommend Sonic it looks better than even some new 3DS releases and will not disappoint

I agree that this game plays smoothly. It's 60 fps, right?????

Decided to give the series another chance after a mediocre experience via Classic collection DS a few years back. Sort of glad I did though. I still can't say I'm a fan of the series but at least I got a new found appreciation for the game even if I find 2 out of the 6 zones awesome. I'm off course talking about Green Hill and Star Light. Labyrinth zone on the other hand is as sluggish and drawn out as I remembered it to be from the DS collection. I would also add that I only repurchased this only for the 3D effect, if only to support Sega and M2 and convince them to churn out more 3D classics.
@Zerks-san I can confirm it is indeed the 60hz release and not the inferior european 50hz version.

I think the Game Gear Sonic games need to be lowered in cost now. Its ridiculous paying more for a Game Gear Sonic than an enhanced Mega Drive Sonic.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

Finally beat the original Sonic properly! I've beaten it before on the Genesis collection and DS port, but both times I used saves in place of continues.

Then I downloaded this and beat it easily! ...only realizing later that the original Japanese version (which I played) was a bit easier than the international release.

As of last night, though, I beat it properly, in one go! Missed two Chaos Emeralds though. What a great game...I really hope we get a 3D version of 2.

I've beat it in the past, but never with all six Chaos Emeralds. I finally got the good ending on the 3DS version. Next time, I'll try to get the good ending of Sonic 1 without using restore points.

Getting all but two was the closest I've ever come. Is it worth it? I've never gotten all of them in any Sonic game.
