Game Gear Shinobi, Sonic headed to 3DS

ESRB rating outs downloadable launches.

The first two Game Gear titles to launch on the 3DS eShop will likely be Shinobi and Sonic Triple Trouble.

Both have just recieved fresh ESRB ratings (spotted by TinyCartridge).

Their launch will be the first time non-Nintendo platform games have become available on the 3DS Virtual Console.

Nintendo first announced it would start dusting off Game Gear titles early last year. Turbografx-16 games were also promised.

Sega has launched new games in both the Shinobi and Sonic series for 3DS during the past year, so it makes sense to start mining the back catalogue with these.

Both games were rated "E for Everyone", with Shinobi featuring "animated violence".
