Back on November we reported on a rumour that stated SEGA was about to bring some of its classic arcade titles to the 3DS with fancy 3D visuals, and that Space Harrier was set to see release first.

Turns out it was more than just a rumour, and SEGA is launching Space Harrier 3D on the Japanese 3DS eShop on December 26th.

The updated title is set to feature mid-game saves, a host of display options and a Time Trial mode. It also features a mode which apparently simulates the movement and sound of the original hydraulic arcade cabinet.
