Sega has confirmed that Streets of Rage 2, Gunstar Heroes and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 are making their way to the 3DS eShop.

This trio of Sega Mega Drive / Genesis titles will be joining the steadily-growing ranks of Sega's retro remasters, which already includes the likes of Space Harrier, Out Run, Altered Beast and Fantasy Zone.

Streets of Rage 2 is coming first, with a July release confirmed. It's regarded as the best entry in the franchise, and one of the finest side-scrolling fighters ever made. The sublime Gunstar Heroes - the first game from legendary Japanese studio Treasure - is expected in August, while the excellent Sonic 2 will follow in September.

Sega has also confirmed that Fantasy Zone II hits the eShop on the 16th, while Thunder Blade will be coming next month, on May 14th.

As before, all of the above games will cost $5.99/€4.99/£4.49.
