Following the announcement of the third and final Sega 3D Classics package in Japan, Sega has been drip-feeding details of the new games included in the collection. First up was Turbo OutRun, quickly followed by the sublime 16-bit shooter Thunder Force III. At the start of this week it was confirmed that Japanese magazine Famitsu would reveal the last two titles on Thursday, but the information has appeared online early.

The final two games in Sega 3D Fukkoku Archives 3: Final Stage are Columns and Alien Syndrome. The former was positioned as Sega's answer to Tetris, and saw release on the Mega Drive / Genesis, Master System and Game Gear, as well as receiving an arcade release and numerous sequels over the years.

The game hits Japanese retail on December 22nd. There's no word on a western release at present, but given that we've just had Sega 3D Classics Collection, there's a good chance it could make the jump.
