Earlier this week, we learned that SEGA was planning to release a third SEGA 3D Classics Collection, called SEGA 3D Classics Collection: Final Stage. It will be released on December 22nd in Japan, and will include a total of 9 games.
Here’s the games to be included in this third and final SEGA 3D Classics collection:
- 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2
- 3D Afterburner II
- 3D Streets of Rage 2
- 3D Gunstar Heroes
- 3D Super Hang-on
- Turbo Outrun
- 3 more titles
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. That game is Turbo Outrun, which was originally released on Arcade. The 3 remaining titles will be revealed at a later date, with one to be announced at the Tokyo Game Show 2016 later this month. A hint for that game: “You can see the Universe!”.
But that’s not all: SEGA also announced that a triple-pack including all three collections (SEGA 3D Classics Collection, SEGA 3D Classics Collection 2, and SEGA 3D Classics Collection 3: Final Stage) will be released on December 22nd in Japan. Ken Sugimori (of Pokémon fame) will once again draw the artwork for the cover of the third collection (and most likely that of the triple-pack, too).
In Famitsu magazine, Okunari Yousuke (Producer) explains that it’s thanks to fans and their support that they’re able to release a third collection, and make sure that all SEGA 3D Classics titles are available at retail.
He also gives a rundown of the number of games included in each collection:
- SEGA 3D Classics Collection – 6 games + 2 extra games
- SEGA 3D Classics Collection 2 – 7 + 2 extra games
- SEGA 3D Classics Collection 3: Final Stage – 9 games
Finally, here’s the official screenshots:
