SEGA reveals Game Gear 3DS VC lineup

Sonic! Shinobi! Columns! More Sonic!

SEGA has revealed the five Game Gear games it will make available to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console when it launches in May.

They are Sonic & Tales 2, Sonic Drift 2, The GG Shinobi, Dragon Crystal Shirani's Maze, and Columns.

SEGA failed to reveal pricing while announcing the lineup, according to Andriasang.

At the Game Developers Conference yesterday Nintendo announced that a worldwide 3DS update will roll out in late May that adds the DSiWare service and the ability to transfer your existing DSiWare games to 3DS.

The Nintendo 3DS web browser and eShop will also be added. At the eShop you will be able to buy Virtual Console games - like old Game Boy, Game Boy Colour, Game Gear and TurboGrafx games - as well as 3D Classics, which are fully remastered 3D versions of old games.

"This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Game Gear system, and we believe that releasing these titles on the groundbreaking Nintendo 3DS is a great way to commemorate the occasion," said Haruki Satomi, vice president of Digital Business at SEGA of America.

"Both new fans and those with fond memories of time spent playing their Game Gear will surely find something to love in our upcoming lineup of Nintendo eShop titles."
