This week saw the arrival of the first two titles in SEGA's range of 3D re-releases on the 3DS eShop, with 3D Space Harrier and 3D Super Hang-On. There are another six games coming in the next three weeks to give retro SEGA fans — and perhaps those trying them for the first time — a taste of old-school arcade and Genesis / Mega Drive titles.
The titles took their time coming to the West, but the positive news is that there could be more on the way. SEGA producer Yosuke Okunari answered a fan on Twitter to announce that a second batch of 3D re-releases are in the works for release in Japan, while the sales performance of the upcoming downloads will determine the fate of localisation in the West.
@LinearLoveStory Thank you. We develop the 2nd series for Japan. If this overseas release succeeds, it may release these in the world.— Yosuke Okunari /奥成洋輔 (@okunari) November 30, 2013
It'll be interesting to see which games will make it into this second set. We'd love to see Sonic the Hedgehog 2, ourselves — what about you?
