Three days ago Sega posted on their official Facebook page that fans of their classic games would be rewarded by something new.

Sega 3D Classics Collections for 3DS confirmed, coming to the west |

That didn't quite materialize that same day, but they have announced a new classic game collection for the Nintendo 3DS, the Sega 3D Classics Collection. It's not quite the 25th Anniversary Sonic the Hedgehog game we were all hoping for, but it still does pay homage to some of the best games that have been released on the Genesis.

And quite frankly it doesn't mean we won't get a new Sonic the Hedgehog game either, because given the evidence from the official Sonic Facebook page, and their reply to Sega post about something for the classics lovers, we might yet see this franchise blossom into what it used to be.

The following seven classic games are included:

  • Power Drift
  • Puyo Puyo 2
  • Fantasy Zone II W
  • Sonic The Hedgehog
  • Thunder Blade
  • Galaxy Force II
  • Altered Beast

And these two bonus games are included as well:

  • Fantasy Zone II
  • Maze Walker
