In Japan, SEGA already released two SEGA 3D Classics Collections at retail, with the second one making its way to North America earlier this year (the European release is slated for November 4th). And it looks like a third one is on the way, called SEGA 3D Classics Collection 3: Final Stage. With such a title, we can safely assume this will be the very last SEGA 3D Classics Collection (on Nintendo 3DS).
The SEGA 3D Classics Collection 3: Final Stage will be released on December 22nd in Japan, and will include more retro games “remastered” with stereoscopic 3D and various other enhancements. One of the titles was actually picked up based on the results of a questionnaire filled out by fans who purchased the previous SEGA 3D Classics Collection.
The results are as follows:
- ??? (the game that will be included in this third SEGA 3D Classics Collection)
- Virtua Racing
- Gain Ground
- Wing War
The collection will also include 5 other titles previously released via the Nintendo eShop (but not available in a previous collection): 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2, 3D Afterburner II, 3D Streets of Rage 2, 3D Gunstar Heroes, and 3D Super Hang-on. We can also expect a couple of bonus games, like the previous collections! According to Famitsu, development is 70% complete.
Here’s the preview from Famitsu magazine (which conveniently hides what is most definitely the main artwork for the boxart, probably drawn by Ken Sugimori once again):

SEGA 3D Classics 3 (3DS) will be released on December 22nd in Japan. It’s a bit too early to say whether a European and/or North American release is planned or not.
