Jonathan Higgins posted a article in NintendoThis week“s Nintendo Download has unique eXperiences, the newest SEGA 3D Classic, another hardcore Wii U Virtual Console release, a bunch of indie favorites, and more. For starters, let“s talk 3D Gunstar Heroes. One of my favorite SEGA Genesis games ever is perfectly ported and portable with new modes and features, including the ability to possess all combinations of all the game“s weapon choices right from the start. This week“s Virtual Console releases seem strategically placed. The Wii U is graced with Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, as well as Genghis Khan II: Clan of the Grey Wolf. Speaking of strategy, some brain-power is needed to play The Bridge, a 2D puzzler arriving on the Wii U eShop today. The Bridge isn“t the only unique indie game arriving this week: there“s also Crab Cakes Rescue, Factorum, Mortar Melon, and Woah Dave! While you“re taking a look at all those titles, you may want to grab the Demo Version of Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX as well. There are a few more things of note popping up on both eShops. Little Battlers eXperience is out on the 3DS eShop today, and (from August 21st through 23rd) the Splatoon Testfire is making its grand return. Whether you“re fighting LBX robots or blasting your friends with ink, there“s definitely some multiplayer fun to be had. The Testfire happens each day this weekend from 3-5 PM PT, 6-8 PM ET. This week“s sales offer humongous discounts (up to 66% off) for certain Capcom games, like Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate from August 24th through 31st. Devil Survivor: Overclocked is $19.99 again until August 24th. Senran Kagura Burst is also $19.99 until September 15th. There are plenty more sales this week, so be sure to check here after the Nintendo Download goes live for more marked down games, including the Capcom ones Nintendo didn“t list in their Press Release this morning. This is the second week in a row Nintendo hasn“t highlighted any new themes. But...there“s certainly more than enough content in this week“s Download! Will you be picking up 3D Gunstar Heroes or any of the other games offered this week? Be sure to let us know!
I've decided I want to create a thread that pays tribute to your favorite 3D Classics in the eShop library. Rather than rely on simple ports like the Virtual Console, folks like M2 put tender loving care into classic games, giving them new life and new depth. What are some of your favorites? I dusted off my Japanese 3DS just to buy and play this gem last night. 3D Streets of Rage 2 is coming stateside in July. I may have compiled 750 words of notes about all the nuances and changes made to the game's "3D" version. If y'all want to see them, here on this very thread, just say the word. I have to say, 3D OutRun makes my heart sing more than any of the others (not counting the above one). I'm not really sure why; I think it's because the 3D effects...like...belong in a racer like that one. Go 'head! Tell me what 3D Classics you own. Want Nintendo to follow SEGA's lead, for once? 3D Super Mario World? C'mon, it's a no brainer.
Jonathan Higgins posted a article in NintendoRemember when SEGA announced the second wave of their 3D Classics was coming west back in November 2014? 3D OutRun and others have already arrived on the eShop, while games like 3D Fantasy Zone 2 (this Thursday) and 3D Thunder Blade (this May) are still coming as planned. Still, I had always hoped for my three favorite games from SEGA's golden era to be ported over, eventually: Streets of Rage 2, Gunstar Heroes, and Sonic 2. As it turns out...SEGA has officially granted my wish. All three of those games are confirmed, and they are coming west this summer. 3D Streets of Rage 2 will be released this July. 3D Gunstar Heroes is coming in August. And 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will arrive this September. As with all the 3D Classics from SEGA, they're being ported over by M2, who famously puts a lot of tender loving care into these titles. ....These were the three games I was most excited to eventually experience. So now that they're coming, I want to ask all of you: what SEGA Genesis games would you like to see given the 3D Classics treatment? Does anyone own any of the current SEGA 3D Classics available on the eShop? Are you looking forward to playing one or all of these three this summer? Let us know! Source: SEGA of America Blog
Jonathan Higgins posted a article in NintendoI grew up during the peak of the Nintendo vs. SEGA console wars of the 1990s. And while my love for The Legend of Zelda and PokÃ©mon run deep, it may surprise some to learn that I was actually a SEGA kid back in the day. And that“s why the current line of SEGA 3D Classics on the Nintendo 3DS eShop warm my heart. As of this very moment, folks can enjoy games like Streets of Rage, Sonic the Hedgehog, Ecco the Dolphin and more, ported by the folks at M2 with a handful of features that should appeal to everyone. These aren't your typical fare of, â€œOh, let“s put together a ROM and push out the foreground and background a littleâ€. A fair amount of work gets put into these! I“ve been following the SEGA 3D Classics pretty closely, especially since I happen to own a Japanese Nintendo 3DS. The second line of SEGA 3D Classics have already been released in Japan and feature games like 3D OutRun and 3D Fantasy Zone II. Many were hoping the second line of 3D Classics from SEGA would also find their way outside of Japan. And today, SEGA keeps hope alive. 3D After Burner II is coming to the West in early 2015. And the rest of the second batch will soon follow in monthly installments. The second batch includes OutRun and Fantasy Zone II as aforementioned, as well as 3D Thunder Blade. All the games will be priced at $5.99/â‚¬4.99/Â£4.49. Personally, I“m still holding onto hope for 3D Bare Knuckle II, or as it“s known in the West...3D Streets of Rage 2. But I can dream! In the meantime, it looks like there“s no shortage of childhood nostalgia coming from SEGA. Happy times!
