The next game coming in the SEGA 3D Classics series for the 3DS eShop has been revealed and it’s Sonic the Hedgehog from the Sega Genesis. The first two games in the set were released just last week in 3D Space Harrier and 3D Super Hang-On. Sonic seems like the next logical step to get the 3D treatment.
The game is likely still a ways off from being released, but SEGA put up a lenghty blog post today with an interview from the developers of the project.
Yousuke Okunari, a producer at SEGA, had this to say about the project on the blog. “So far with the 3D Remaster Project, we’ve put out Space Harrier and Super Hang-on. People might have been looking forward to another arcade cabinet game port, but our next release is actually a stereoscopic 3D adaptation of Sonic The Hedgehog.”
“As we discussed in our previous interviews, our previous two releases were games where the player “scrolls into the screen”, something easy for anyone to imagine in 3D. But for the next game, we wanted to put out a game that people wouldn’t expect to see in 3D. With that in mind, we considered multiple titles and in the end we chose Sonic’s debut game, because there’s nothing more SEGA than that.”

What do you think? Are you game for some classic Sonic gaming with a 3D twist?
